Rangers React

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

“We have to realize that the series is not over,” said Lundqvist, his team’s best player by leaps and bounds. “We really can’t think too much about this.
“We can’t lay down and die here.”
Understand, this game was not stolen from the Rangers, no matter how close they came to escaping with the series lead after Martin Straka scored at 16:41 of the third to break a scoreless tie. The Blueshirts were sloppy and a step or two slow against a Buffalo squad that played uptight hockey nearly all night and were there for the taking.
“We’re not going to win too many playing our ‘B’ game,” Tom Renney said, echoing the message he delivered to the team moments after it had ended. “If we give an opportunity like this the next time to our opponent, the series is over.”
