Rangers Take Point in Shootout Loss to Habs

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Derek Stepan said no player is ever satisfied with just one point, but to a man, the Rangers knew they played well enough to win in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Montreal Canadiens at Madison Square Garden.

"You're never satisfied with just one point. You've got to try and get both every single night," said Stepan, who hit the cross bar in the third round of the shootout before Paul Byron beat Henrik Lundqvist in the fifth round for the win. "I thought it was a good game. Both sides played a full 65 minutes, competed real hard and we had our looks. Their goaltender made some saves and they had their looks and our goaltender made some saves. It was a good hockey game."
