NEWS & NOTES





QUOTES TO NOTE

It's big. I think it's one of those things that's really hard to take it in and appreciate at this time of year.
We realize that it is a special accomplishment, but at the same time we know we need to remain focused and be ready for playoff hockey.
- Ryan Callahan


It's awesome. Last year, kind of squeaking into the playoffs on the last day of the season, and to have it a total turnaround this year, is great.
We knew we had the guys in here to accomplish something special like this. It's a good feeling.
- Ryan McDonagh


The biggest thing is our consistency. Thatís where I think our team has really grown, in not getting into too many valleys. We had one in March here. Really about the only one that we had all year long.
And itís a credit to them, and I know you guys (the media) piss and moan when I say it, but itís a day to day thing for our team here. I think our guys have really bought into that, of just coming to work each day and trying to be the best they can be.
- John Tortorella
