Following last night's game against the Flyers, Henrik Lundqvist said "we all felt the importance of this game, the way things happened last night, we wanted to come back with a really solid performance and we got one." (NYR)
Lundqvist said that the Rangers haven't always been able to be as consistent as they hope to be but they've been able to "respond quickly after a letdown and that's important." (NY Post)

Lundqvist told Pierre McGuire after the game that "so many things we lacked last night we had tonight. It starts with how hard you work and determination and coming into this game we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were better than what we showed last night."
Alain Vigneault said that this is a group that knows how to prepare, knows how to compete and that they knew Tuesday against Buffalo was "below our expectations individually and collectively."
From the Rangers game notes, "Since Dec. 22, 2015, the Rangers have posted a 29-5-1 record in the game following a loss (regulation or overtime/shootout). New York has posted a 12-1-1 record in games following a loss in 2016-17."
Adam Rotter: The one thing the Rangers have been really consistent with this year is there ability to bounce back. With the exception of the game against Minnesota, following the Pittsburgh drubbing, the Rangers have been excellent in following up a loss. Tuesday seemed like much more than a loss though and the Rangers came back with excellent goaltending, mostly smart play with the puck and scoring from a variety of players. The Rangers are a good team but they aren't immune to laying an egg once in a while. The important thing though is that when the Rangers do lay an egg they bounce back and respond the right way.
