“ When you're an offensive guy, you want to help the team, and the way you help the team is by producing offensively. So it's fun to do that. It's tough at times when you're not, but fortunately the team's been winning. We're piling up points and I want to just keep on helping. ”

Just the day before, following Rangers practice, Brad Richards had discussed his recent scoring struggles with the media, while his head coach John Tortorella said that Richards "will find his way" offensively. Then on Thursday night Richards scored a dramatic and scintillating goal 2:37 into overtime to lift the Blueshirts to a 4-3 victory over his former club, the Tampa Bay Lightning, at Madison Square Garden.

Following the game, BlueshirtsUnited.com caught up with Richards, team captain Ryan Callahan, and defenseman Michael Del Zotto to chat about Brad's game-winner, and the importance of that goal to No. 19 in blue.
