Original Post:
Rick Carpiniello at the Rangers Report has these post game quotes….

Brandon Dubinsky:

“We just battled in the corner there and we converged there and I just was able to get the puck to myself. I was trying to bring it hard to the net and I saw Danny coming in the back door. I just thought if I jammed, he’d come in and help it. A fortunate bounce over the goalie and into the net.

“I thought we were better than we were in the first two games. We took the body and were physical all night. We got our forecheck going. We were able to make more plays, I thought, and get more shots and bring more pucks to the net than we have in the first two games.”

Ruslan Fedotenko on the disallowed goal:

“We didn’t put our heads down. Just, ‘Let’s go get another one.’ I thought we had pretty good life in the lockerroom.”

Brian Boyle:

“That’s big. As angry as you were after Games 1 and 2, and all those redundant questions we had to answer, it’s good that we can be happy with this one. But it’s the same mindset. We’re going to focus on Game 4. We’ll enjoy this, just like we were angry about the other ones, but Game 4 now.”

Vinny Prospal:

“We only scored one goal in the previous two games combined, so you have to do something to manufacture offense. I mean, the overall team effort is always good, and Hank gave us a chance every night. We just have to manufacture some offense as well.”

Dan Girardi:

“I just think we played a better overall game. We played our game. Getting on bodies, cycling down low, using behind the net there to create some offense. When we do all those things right we have a chance to win every night, and it helped us win tonight.”

Henrik Lundqvist on feeding off the crowd:

“Absolutely. It’s just a great feeling to be back here and play playoff hockey in front of our own fans. It’s been two years. That’s why you work hard all year. You want to be here and feel ghat excitement, atmosphere. I love it.

“I feel a lot of pride to be here right now. You work hard all year to be here. I took it very personal last year when we didn’t make it. I felt I could have helped the team more.”
