Mats Zuccarello converted a Chris Kreider feed for the eventual game winner in the third period against the Capitals.
Zuccarello spoke after the game and said (NYR):
- Was that a set play, "it was a fluke"
- On the win, "it was a good team we were playing, two good teams out there. It felt like a playoff atmosphere and a division rivalry. It's nice to get the two points."
- Did you like the third period, "I think we played a pretty solid game. Our defense and Hank was really good and we created a lot of chances. Both teams had their looks but in the end we deserved to win."
- Was that a set play, "no, not really. If he loses it then I am just trying to get position but Kreids got it and he is quick and strong and it's a good play by him."
