Immediate Reaction After Game 5 From The Rangers And Kings

from Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News,

One minute later, Richards was asked if there were pride in the Rangers’ accomplishments, despite how it all had crashed down.

“There will be,” Richards said. “Not tonight. But there will be. Tonight’s not a night to reminisce. But there will a time this summer when you think back about what an amazing run it was. It has to be amazing to get this far: To come together, and no one will ever know except for us how fun it was and how we came together. But you lose three games in overtime in the final, it’s tough to explain.”

What seemed to hurt the Rangers the most was how close they felt they had been. The series ended 4-1 Kings, but the Blueshirts had led all three games in Los Angeles that they eventually lost, all in extra time.

They couldn’t believe it was over.

“We all want to go back onto the ice,” center Derick Brassard said.

Chris Kreider was angry, pacing a bit to the side behind where Richards had conducted his interview. Further back to the right corner, Derek Stepan sat crushed at his locker.

“It sucks right now. This is so tough to swallow,” said Stepan, who has not been able to swallow solid food since breaking his jaw in the Eastern Conference Final against Montreal.
