A slow start, and an inability to capitalize on their own scoring chances, doomed the Rangers Monday night as the Blueshirts dropped a 2-1 final to the Anaheim Ducks. Following the game BlueshirtsUnited.com caught up with defenseman Michael Del Zotto---who scored the Rangers' lone goal, goaltender Henrik Lundqvist---who stopped 23 of 25 shots, and team captain Ryan Callahan---who returned to the lineup after missing seven games with a broken thumb and contributed an assist, two shots, and six hits over 18:43, to discuss various aspects of the defeat.
“ The goal feels good, would be much nicer with a win, but I feel like I've been creating offense, was hoping one would go in. ”
- Michael Del Zotto
“ We responded really well, especially in the second and third when we played well, we had a lot of opportunities to tie this game. They showed why they're a good team, they make you pay when mistakes happen. ”
- Henrik Lundqvist
“ We didn't have the start we wanted, and a team like that when they're on you, getting opportunities, they have a lot of talent and they are going to capitalize. And that's what they did, they jumped on us early. ”
