Chytil said after the game (NYR Game Notes):
- On scoring the game-winning goal…"It was an amazing feeling to score a goal in overtime. My first goal was a winning goal, and it was a great pass from Mats Zuccarello. It was an amazing feeling. I'm glad that we won."
- On the pace of the game…"I felt great. It was my first game after four weeks (off). It was a great game. I played with great players, some of the best players in the league so I enjoyed every moment on the ice. It was really exciting."
- On playing more games going forward…"I will see next game if I will play. I'm really happy I played my first game in Madison Square Garden and I will see what (will happen) in the next days. I am looking forward to the next day and next practice."
