Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record has these post game players quotes...

Marc Staal...

"sick, gross feeling in your stomach...It sucks."

Henrik Lundqvist...

“It’s just a horrible feeling. When it’s over, all the work you put in over the last couple of months, even the last eight months, it hurts.”

Gross added that Ryan McDonagh looked the most devastated in the locker room after the game.

...can't even imagine the disappointment in the locker room after that one. With all the blocked shots and the tough forecheck, these guys literally put their bodies on the line every night and to not see a pay off at the end must be devastating.

...couldn't be more proud of the effort and determination of the 2011-12 New York Rangers. Will go down as one of my favorite all time Blueshirts teams. Can't remember another Rangers team that stepped up in the face of adversity as much as this one did. From Derek Boogaard's death in the offseason to starting the year in Europe and Western Canada and of course the 24/7 and Winter Classic destractions, this team never wavered and always gave 100%.
