Rick Nash spoke on MSG after the game and said:
- On his goal, "it was a good start but giving up the first goal takes the air out of the balloon. Personally, I feel that my game has been good, just haven't been able to put the puck in the net, tonight two go in."
- On finally scoring, "it's only one game. It's not that big of a deal to me, it's what I am supposed to do. I will go back tomorrow, keep working on my game and try to come back even better against Buffalo."
- On the win, "we forechecked with five guys, set up our neutral zone trap with five guys, defended with five guys. It makes such a difference when you are all on the same page and I thought we were tonight."
- On winning puck battles, "any time you go into the corner you want to come away with the puck but the last few games it hasn't been that way. Something we focus on tonight and I think the guys did a great job.
