Dave Lozo at NHL.com has this quote from Marc Staal after last night's Game 7 win on the Rangers confidence after losing Game 5 to go down 3-2 in the series..."I don't think anybody in this room doubted for a second that we'd come back. We were still confident going into Game 6. We knew we had to get that game to get it back here, and we'd have a good shot of closing it out. We stayed confident. We stayed with it."...got to be honest, I was definitely concerned big time after Game 5. But that's why I'm a fan and Staal is a player. I find it fascinating that they're able to keep such an even keel in such high pressure situations....this is where having guys like Richards, Rupp and Fedotenko pays such dividends. Torts said during his press conference that some players addressed the dressing room before last night's Game 7 and I'm sure it had a huge impact on the results.Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at ...
