On Lundqvist, who said he tried to kick Kaberle's shot into the corner: "He fights, he's a battler...and he's going to be the reason why we get in (to the playoffs)...
On Avery: "Tough break, not only for him, but more importantly, for the hockey club."...The feisty wing's left knee is expected to be examined tomorrow
Just as an aside, I can't remember hearing Lundqvist drop the f-bomb, and I've covered him since he was a rookie. He was furious with himself.
D Anders Eriksson, in his Rangers debut, played 14:08....With Avery out indefinitely, I assume that P.A. Parenteau will stick around. He had four shots in 16:03 and was a plus 1.
Atlanta won last night, so the Rangers remain in 10th place, two points behind the Thrashers, with 78. To reach 90 points, the Blueshirts will have to run the table. A 6-0-1 finish gives them 89. A 6-1 run would be enough for 88. The Flyers need four wins or some combination of eight points for 88.
Leafs coach Ron Wilson: "We got lucky there in the end and it cost the Rangers a big point."
The Rangers have no practice scheduled on Sunday, and will return to the rink. on Monday.
