Alain Vigneault met with the media on MSG following the win over Buffalo and said:
- On the Nash, Buchnevich line, "in the last two games they have supported one another real well and made little plays, those subtle plays that don't get noticed, board plays, down low plays that enable them to get rush chances and they have been able to get in the forecheck and create some turnovers like they did on the last goal. They came up big for us at a key time."
- On Nash, "he came ready to play again tonight, it's good to see that all of that hard work is getting rewarded. It's good for him but especially good for our team, we need the wins. Tonight I thought we came out real strong, had a good first period. They came back hard in the second but in the third we played to win. It's unfortunate that we got a little unlucky on Smitty's penalty but Hank came up big with a couple of key saves and we were able to get the job done. Good? Thanks guys, we are leaving for the road so I gotta go."
