Alain Vigneault said after the game that the Rangers PP is "confident and executing" and helped take back the momentum against the Oilers.
After Saturday's win, Henrik Lundqvist said "our power play stepped up big time in the end of the second and kind of changed the whole momentum of the game." (NYR Game Notes)
Ryan McDonagh said that the Rangers PP is confident but that they are also taking what the PK is giving to them. (NYR Game Notes)
He added, "you've got to really outwork the PK and not get outworked yourself. I liked the fact that we weren't forcing anything. It was just making a couple of passes and getting it down to the net." (NYR Game Notes)
Kevin Shattenkirk said of the PP on Saturday, "It's definitely made a big difference for us. We've had a few games here where it has helped us to get back in the game and take the lead. But more than anything, we have gotten momentum off of it no matter what." (NYR Game Notes)
Shattenkirk added, "I think that's our focus every time we go out there. We've kept it simple when we need to. We've just used it as a starting point to pick our game up. It's important that we do that, that we aren't draining any momentum from our team." (NYR Game Notes)
Adam Rotter: It seems like forever since the Rangers were actually converting on the PP at crucial moments in a game. They needed to score on the delay of game penalty late in the second and they did. They were given another opportunity on the PP, took it, converted and grabbed hold of the momentum without ever really giving it back to Edmonton. It's a great sign for the Rangers and with all of the different options they have, hopefully it will continue.
