Friday Postgame Chatter

“ There were some good things, but we wanted two points and only got one. There are some positives to be taken. ”
- Brian Boyle
“ I thought we played the style of hockey we like to play. I think the biggest thing for us is we've backed it up a couple of games in a row now. This time of year you want two points, but this is a positive game. ”
- Ryan Callahan
“ You could feel the importance of the game for both teams, and I thought we played great. We came up a little short in the shootout, but I liked a lot about our game. ”
- Henrik Lundqvist

Though the Rangers secured only one of a possible two points on Friday night in Pittsburgh, there was much to feel good about the team's overall game---not the least of which was a 35-27 shots advantage, and some terrific work on the forecheck. It could be arged that if not for a standout performance in goal by Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury, the Rangers would have earned those two points instead of one by virtue of their 2-1 shootout defeat.

After the game BlueshirtsUnited.com caught up with center Brian Boyle---who had five shots on goal and three hits, team captain Ryan Callahan---who logged 23:04 and created a string of prime scoring chances, and goaltender Henrik Lundqvist---who stopped 26 of 27 hsots through 65 minutes of play, and got their take on the playoff-type contest played on Friday night.
