Alain Vigneault said that it was a "very good first game" for Lundqvist.
After the game, Lundqvist said (NYR):
- "It was a good test for me. Both teams played pretty well, it was fun, really fun to be out there playing again. Been skating since late July so you need some games to get more information on what you need to work on."
- We talked about making good decisions, my game is all about good decisions and reads. Felt like I was doing that and my positioning was good. It was a good start, still have things to work on, but we will look at video and talk to Benny about what we need to work on and it was a good first test."
- On 3 on 3, "I think you will see so many different looks. Some may defend and wait for the right opportunity and others will just go for. Skilled players have an advantage, not sure what to expect from it but it will be challenging.
