Morning Line- Part 2

“So I just needed a kick in the butt. I talked to Schoeny on the ice in practice the day before the Buffalo game. And Torts challenged a few guys. And I was one of the guys. He looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘You have to be better.’ It’s not always fun, but it’s happened to me a few times. I’ve had some tough coaches. You’ve just got to suck it up.

And if I want to be in this situation where I’m playing with Gabby on the first line, I have to play well….”

-Erik Christensen of the New York Rangers.  More from Jeff Z. Klein of Slap Shot at the NY Times.

Big Moment- Osgood Stops Christensen

Chris Osgood robs Erik Christensen at the door step to keep the score at 2-1 Detroit with 3:05 to go in the second period.

added 10:47pm, via Dan Wood of the OC Register,

“I actually bent down and told him, ‘Nice save, Ozzie,’” Christensen said. “I had him along the ice. He was going one way. I was going the other way. He just reached out and it was right in his glove — unlucky for me, lucky for him.

“It could have changed the momentum completely.”

Morning Line

“I think it takes like 10 games or 12 games to really come together,. hey lost three guys (Samuel Pahlsson, Travis Moen and Kent Huskins) who were Stanley Cup champions. That’s a hurtful loss. It’s going to take some time, but everyone is warming up. Everyone is getting along pretty great and getting to know each other. That’s the key.”

-Erik Christensen of the Anaheim Ducks.  More on the Ducks win over the Avalanche last night from Dan Wood of Ducks Blog.
