Dave Lozo at NHL.com talked to a few Rangers about Ottawa's effort last night...

Brad Richards...

"They played really well last night," Richards said. "There was a momentum swing in the game we were able to grab, but they could've grabbed it too. We have to realize we're going to have to be a lot better.

"They had the puck a lot in the second period. If they score a goal and make it 1-1, it might be different."

Brandon Dubinsky...

"They have a great team over there," forward Brandon Dubinsky said. "They've got five or six guys that are world-class talents and can be dangerous with the puck. We expect them to be at their best tomorrow. We have to be ready to elevate our game and match their intensity."

...now that is what you call humble. There's no "this is our series to win" or "we're going to send Alfredsson home" just complete respect for their opponent and knowing what they have to do to win.

...i also do agree with Richards, there was a point in the beginning of the second period in which the Senators had all the momentum and could have easily turned that into a much different game. We can all thank Lundqvist for making sure that didn't happen.
