They said it
"We're two teams that are somewhat similar, in that we've got a young nucleus and some sprinkling of some really good veterans on the team. ... Two teams that aren't in the playoffs but that we all feel our best days are ahead of us." -- Senators coach Marc Crawford
"Teams aren't going to quit and we certainly aren't one of those teams. It's part of being a professional is finishing everything out and tonight is no different. We want to make sure that we are bringing out best and making sure that you're building some positive momentum and you're feeling good about your game going into next year." -- Rangers defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk
