Henrik Lundqvist spoke on MSG after the Rangers loss to Columbus and said:
- On the third goal, "couple of breakdowns when they got the third one. I have to watch it to really see what happened. They hurt us on their transition game. They had so many odd-man rushes. We had more shots, but it felt like they played a smarter game and they hurt us. They have some quick players who had some breakaways, 2 on 1s, 3 on 1s and it was a tough game."
- On Atkinson, "he comes in with a lot of speed. He has a good shot. Everything he does he does with speed and does it well. "
- On Columbus, "the key is in front of both nets. That is where you win and lose the battle against this team. That is how they score their goals, they win their battles in front of our net and did pretty good in front of their own net. That is where you score a lot of goals and you have to be really sharp to get sticks or as a goalie you have to be sharp to get the save when it's an open shot. In every game they have had a few breakaways. It's a different type of game sometimes."
- On the early goal, "I don't think it has happened as much lately, you can always point out different things that you can do better. Last few weeks that hasn't been the case but it happened today.
