In the post game show, John Tortorella joked that every time Bickel was on the ice he either took a penalty or got in a fight, but added that he gave Bickel "high marks" for his play yesterday.
Michael Del Zotto told, Ranger Rants, “He’s probably one of the hungriest guys in the league to get a fighting major. He never backs up. It’s just amazing what he did for the team tonight.”
Brandon Dubinsky told ESPN NY,
“We joke around in here a lot that he’s never going to shy away from an opportunity to get five minutes. He’s tough,” Dubinsky said. “He’s a guy that’s come in here and earned a job. He’s been great for us. You can’t ask for anything more from a teammate than a guy that steps up to the plate and puts his body on the line every night.”At Rangers Report, Carp writes "Kid’s got some onions. Keep him here. He doesn’t have to play every night, he doesn’t have to play in third periods. But he’s an asset. No doubt about it."
