Brassard: "Every Game is a Battle"

The last time the Rangers and Phoenix Coyotes met, it was opening night on Oct. 3, a 4-1 loss for the Blueshirts. Fast forward some five-plus months, and the two teams faceoff tonight at Madison Square Garden.

After the team's morning skate, Derick Brassard spoke with the media about the play of Henrik Lundqvist, the intensity of the games down the stretch, how the team has improved since the start of the season and more.
