Giannone said Lundqvist said "that is about as well as we can possibly play."
Lundqvist said on MSG:
- "It was a great game. Knowing that it was one of the best teams in the league. We had to be focused on all the aspects of the game and the last two games we played it has been very good in all areas and paying attention to all the details that we need to do to have success."
- When did you know you guys were good tonight, "I felt in the first, just how we were playing in our own end and getting pucks out. We looked so fast when we play that style, making the first play simple. We had great support. When we have close support and make these quick little plays with a lot of speed, it helps our game and it's what we did really well in the second half of last year."
- Did something stand out for you, "There were a couple of bigger chances in the second but it was a very basic game, I have to say. I felt the way we were playing and they looked a little tired from playing a big game last night. I felt like we had to be solid and make good decisions and we would have a good game. We didn't let them cut in front of the net to get good chances and as a goalie that is a good thing."
- On the Brandon Prust incident, "I won't lie, it hurt a little bit but I think he tried to stop. I didn't see him coming, I was looking to my left to clear the puck and then he hit me. I really think he tried to stop so I am fine with that call and obviously Klein stepped up for me there which is good to see."
