Henrik Lundqvist spoke after the loss to Toronto and said (NYR Game Notes)
- On the level of disappointment following tonight's game… "We just couldn't get it done. We played a skilled team and they just made us pay on a few chances they had. My last two starts, I have to be better. I know that; that's the simple answer. If you want to dig a little deeper, obviously as a group, I think we have to be better, but I have to start with myself. I thought it was a little too slow, but look at the goals. A couple breakdowns; it's my job to clean that up."
- On Marleau's goal early in the second period…"I think the whole situation surprised me a little bit, the way he got the puck right in the middle and the shot kind of curved away from me. It looked like it was going towards my blocker and then curved to my right. I have to look at the goals and see what I can do better, but there's no question that tomorrow is a working day. I have to work on everything here, the details in my game, so I can be sure that in the next start I'll be on top of it."
- On the desperation in the room after a game like tonight …"Obviously, the desperation needs to be there now every night. It's hard, you feel like you let people down when you don't get the job done. You're here to play obviously for the group in here, but also the fans and we want to make sure we play strong games moving forward. Personally, I just have to start with myself. I have been feeling pretty good for a while, but the last two starts are something I need to work on and just get the quickness going here."
