What David Quinn said after the win over Boston

David Quinn met with the media following the win over Boston and said (MSG, NHL Media):

  • On having the fans back, “you knew there were going to be fans in the building, but I don’t think any of us expected the impact they would make. They were incredibly loud and passionate and you hear the number of people that were going to be here and think ‘that will be nice,’ but they had an impact tonight and we can’t thank our fans enough, we appreciate the support they give us and we certainly look forward to the day where we can have this place full like it normally is.”

What David Quinn said after the loss to Philly

David Quinn met with the media following the loss to Philly and said (NHL Media):

  • On the game, “obviously there were some good things, but, to me, we shot ourselves in the foot with the penalties and two of them go over the glass, two too many men on the ice, obviously one late in the game, you just can’t…during the course of the play you get six minutes of penalties, two going over the glass, delay of game, and then a too many men on the ice penalty, you just can’t take penalties like that. I don’t know what happens when we come to this building, I can’t explain it. I think we’ve had one too many men on the ice penalty all year, we take two tonight, two delay of game penalties, I don’t know if we’ve had one all year. I liked how we battled back, did a really good job staying in it and giving ourselves a chance, but it wasn’t enough.”
