Sidenote to start: Always appreciated skills of Mike Cammalleri. Think he could've helped the Rangers, who are still a little light on offense, when a team stifles Gaborik, Richards, etc...
The Gamer and a Girardi story is elsewhere on newsday.com, had to leave Garden a little earlier than usual, doc's appt AM.
Anyway, some pertinent extra post-game quotes:
Brian Boyle: "We’re getting those minutes, and we had some chances to score and – we gotta, I gotta score. It’s like, we had a lot of chances and getting those minutes, we’ve got to put one in the net, especially if they score one on us in the second. I think the most part of the game we were doing a pretty good job of frustrating them, but when the game was over, they had three and we had none.”
Henrik Lundqvist on his All-Star selection: "It’s been a good year so far, obviously I’m very proud to be there. There are a lot of good players, and it’s going to be fun to go there. But right now I don’t really think about it much. I’m more disappointed about this loss. I’m just trying to think of what I could have done differently. But I’m really happy that I got selected and I’m looking forward to it.”
John Tortorella on the gaps in Anisimov's game: “Everything. He’s a good player. At times he’s been really good. It’s dried up a little bit. It’s not all on Artie’s shoulders, but his game the past two or three hasn’t gone this way, it keeps on going that way (signalling down).
