Q. In your own words, what can you tell us about what the day was like and being there to support Marty?

Q. Coach, what was your reaction when you heard about Price being out?
COACH VIGNEAULT: It doesn't really change anything for us. We're trying to get ready for our game. Prior to the series, we had prepared for three possible goaltenders, obviously, spending more time on Price. It's very unfortunate what happened to him. But for us, it's business as usual...
Though much has changed with the New York Rangers over the last 12 months, one thing remains the same: the team goes as Henrik Lundqvist goes.

Prosperity has not been kind in the playoffs for the Rangers recently as the numbers are down right ugly.
They have a NHL-record 13-game losing streak when leading a series, while losing 11 straight games immediately after taking a lead in a series. And if that’s not bad enough, in five of their last seven series they have won Game 1 and lost Game 2, not to mention they’ve lost...
