Asked about his first game with the Rangers, Shattenkirk said that the result "still stings" and that there were "some plays out there that I felt like I could have had a better effect on the game and helped our team out a little bit more." (NYR Game Notes)
He said that it was definitely not his "best" game and that he needs to be better with his gap and boxing players out in front of the net. (NY Post)
Dave Maloney said after the game that Shattenkirk is "so calculated" with the puck and has no panic or fear when making plays.
