Henrik Lundqvist met with the media on MSG following the Rangers loss to the Isles and said:
- On their intensity in the second, "we had a stretch in the second where they came hard and we made it hard on ourselves with a couple of turnovers that cost us. Overall it's a good game, I feel that the third one is a killer, it's our PP and sometimes when you have an extra man you might rely on someone else to do the job and I think that is what happened. We didn't communicate enough in front of the net, we had the guys back but we didn't sort it out. That was the difference. Overall it was a good game, we worked hard and had some chances but when we gave that one up it was a tough hill to climb."
- How close were you to covering up the puck, "it was right there, he kept hacking and whacking and the puck kept bouncing. It was right there and when it ended up behind I thought we had the coverage. We had 4 guys back but we didn't sort it out and it cost us. In a game like this where we had some good looks 5 on 5, special teams can decide the game and it did."
