Stralman QuoteBook

“ It's always fun to score goals, no matter who you score them against, but it was a little bit special. You know, I was there (in New Jersey), didn't get that contract, and obviously was a little disappointed about that, so it was nice to score one against them. ”
- Anton Stralman
“ Back-to-backs are always tough, especially coming off an overtime and getting in a bit later, but we have to make the best of it. I'm sure everyone in here will be ready to go tonight. We had a good pace to our game last night, and we will have to make sure we have that again tonight. ”
- Anton Stralman
“ With five days off I'd have to say that the mind is a little more fresh, but it can be a bit of a struggle to get going physically. As we played last night, I thought we were ready for that game, and we'll be ready tonight. ”
- Anton Stralman

Anton Stralman has played 237 games over his National Hockey League career, and last night he notched just his 13th goal---putting back a rebound of a Marian Gaborik shot late in the first period of a 4-3 shootout loss to the Devils. That the goal came against New Jersey, the team with which he attended training camp though never received a contract offer from, made it a touch more special for the Rangers Swedish defenseman.

And speaking of goals, Stralman has netted two of his 13 career goals against tonight's opponent, the Buffalo Sabres.

Following Wednesday's morning skate caught up with Stralaman to chat about scoring against the Devils and about this evening's match-up with Buffalo.
