About the play, Chara said on MSG, "I wasn't aware he was right behind me. I gotta make sure I take a look."
Dave Maloney, on the MSG post game show, said "Stepan once again, you say what you want about Chara falling asleep, it was almost Datsyukian.Datsyuk is so good on the puck and finding the puck that is his game. Stepan's game reminds me of Datsyuk. He is smart with the puck, he tracks the puck really well."
