Morning Skate Chatter

“ The last two days we have prepared ourselves to face a really good team---one that is much better than their record shows. ”
- Derick Brassard
“ We should be the first to know that they are better than their record because they are our rivals and we play against that team a lot, so we don't take anything for granted. We're coming here to have a tough game. ”
- Derick Brassard
“ It's Ranger-Devils so things will be ratcheted up a bit. They've been playing well. They had 40+ shots in Ottawa (Thursday) night, so it has nothing to do with their record, that's not how they're playing. We have to go in there and be ready right from the puck drop. ”
- Brad Richards

The Devils may be winless on the season through seven games (0-4-3), but that doesn't mean the Rangers are coming in to the Prudential Center Saturday night thinking they are in for an easy game. BlueshirtsUnited.com caught up with Derick Brassard and Brad Richards following the morning skate in Newark to discuss what they expect from tonight's matchup of Hudson River rivals.
