Stats:

David Quinn said after the game (Rangers Game Notes):

  • On Henrik, “it’s all on me, he never should have played. Huge mistake on my part putting him in that position. Two intense games in Nashville and St. Louis and he shouldn’t have played. That is certainly way more on me then it is on him. Lesson learned. It’s a decision that I made and I regret it, shouldn’t have put him in that position. I didn’t take him out early enough. Bad night for me on that end of it.”
  • On the second period, “It’s tough because I thought we played pretty well, as crazy as that sounds. You give up four goals in the period and you are feeling pretty good about how you played. They are incredibly opportunistic and we can’t make those kind of mistakes against a team like that. They were big ones.”
