Henrik Lundqvist after Rangers win in LA

Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist following the Rangers 3-1 victory in Los Angeles on Monday night…

On winning on the road:

“Obviously it was a tough loss in Phoenix but this week it’s a great challenge for us- four games in six nights against really good hockey clubs. It’s definitely the way we wanted to start off the week. I thought we played really well and created a lot of chances, especially in the second period. We played really well and kept them in the game, especially in the second period. A lot of good things, here. We played with a lot of confidence and had smart plays out there.”

On if the Rangers’ forecheck was noticeably better:

“Yeah, I thought we put a lot of pressure on them and they gave away the puck a lot in their own end because of our forecheck. Also, the way we came out on our own end. I thought the guys played really well and made it a lot easier for me to play and build some confidence in my game. It was a fun win for us.”

On the importance of winning:

“We talked about earlier, you can play well and do a lot of good things, but if you don’t win, it’s hard to build confidence. To play a team like this, a really strong team- especially at home and to get two points, and the way we beat them too.  I thought we played really well and deserved the win and it’s definitely going to help us moving forward.”

On Jonathan Quick’s missed save:

“It’s tough. I’m not sure exactly what happened, but we’ll definitely take it. It was a key moment I guess, they were on the power play and down one goal. After that, it felt a lot more comfortable to have a two goal lead. Again, we made a lot of good decisions with the puck and made it tough for them to create the big chances.”

On if tonight’s win was a redemption for Frozen Fury and the team’s other losses:

“Like I said, you want to win and you want to help the team to win. That’s how you build confidence. But I feel like my game is coming. Phoenix was okay, and I did a lot of good things, I just didn’t get the result I wanted. Tonight, we got it. Especially the first half of the game, we didn’t give them much. They came out stronger in the third, but you have to expect that. It’s something we can build on and personally, I can build on this one.”
