Following the Rangers win over the Capitals, Derek Stepan spoke with John Giannone on the MSG Post Game Show.

Giannone asked Stepan about the game winning goal that he scored and Stepan said, "We talked about getting pucks to the net. I'm just gonna go to the net and keep my stick down and he just has to hit it. I didn't really do much, if If anything it should be Rick's goal, it just bounced off me."

Last night, Derek Stepan scored the game winning goal for the Rangers after great work from his line mate Artem Anisimov.

Stepan was questionable for the game after blocking a shot on Thursday with his ankle, but John Tortorella told the Daily News that he had no doubt that Stepan would play:

As far as the intangibles, as far as being a pro, he gets it. And I didn?t think there was any time we thought he was going to be sitting out this game.?
Anisimov told Larry Brooks of the NY Post in the post game that he is a big fan of his line mate, ?[Stepan], he has [gonads] you know,? said Anisimov, holding his hands together in front of him in a universally understood manner. ?He?s got game, you know. That winning goal was huge.?

...It's the entire event, but Step is in there. I couldn't believe how they didn't seem prepared or able to let us see a nice shot of both players competing at the same time.
