NEWS & NOTES





QUOTES TO NOTE

Again, it’s just getting back to the way we needed to play. It’s been our bread and butter all year.
Obviously, Richie’s hitting another level and Gabby and Hags is playing out of this world and we got some big stops from Marty.
- Brian Boyle


Hagsy made some good passes tonight, but when I started playing with him a few weeks ago, he probably wouldn't have made them, so you can tell he has this confidence.
He's seeing the ice. I think all three of us did tonight. He's making more plays now and that helps me, and it helps him get back open again to get the puck to the net.
- Brad Richards


Hagsy's developed. Kenny Gernander and those guys have done a good job down in Hartford. Like I told you, I wanted him here just for his speed.
I wanted him out of camp for speed and to bring another young guy into our team, but he wasn’t ready.
So it’s a credit to him and the people down in Hartford that I think taught him a little about positioning.
He still has a lot to learn there. He still has a lot to learn as far as the grind of the game also but he’s coming along fine.
- John Tortorella
