Postgame quotes

Here are some postgame quotes following the Dallas Stars’ 1-0 victory over the New York Rangers Tuesday night.

Stars goaltender Richard Bachman

“It’s just a win. It’s the hockey game I’ve grown up playing. It’s a lot of a fun. It’s fun being up here with these guys and trying to take it all in. I am taking it one day at a time and see what happens from here. … It’s amazing, it’s fun and I am glad I finally got to see Madison Square Garden. It was the first I time. I thought that was cool, too.”

Stars coach Glen Gulutzan on Bachman

“It’s his demeanor to be a calm guy and he’s very tidy around his net. Tonight, maybe, there were a few more things laying around him than usual, but he made some huge saves on a two-on-one and on a slap shot at the end that he saw at the last minute. When you get saves like that in somebody else’s building, it lends itself to getting a few points.”

Stars defenseman Trevor Daley on the win

“They’re all huge. You go to last year we were one point out. Every point matters. … We stuck with it, got a break and buried it. You are not going to score too many goals on that goalie. It was a hard battle and we stuck with it and came out on top.”

Stars forward Eric Nystrom on the penalty kill, which was 4-4

“The PK is huge and we did a really good job. That’s just hard work and paying the price. Tonight we killed off some timely power plays for them and that’s a big key to winning.”

Rangers coach John Tortorella

“We played hard. I thought as far as the zone time we spent quite a bit of time in their zone. But I still don’t think we generated enough offense. We had some really good chances, three or four of them, but certainly not enough sustained.”

Rangers captain Ryan Callahan

“I think they sat back pretty well. Their defense was sitting back and they kept moving the puck backwards, and drawing us in and then attacking us. It was a bit back and forth that way, but at the same time I don’t think we got enough pucks in deep, worked them that well. When we started to do that, we had pressure, we had chances.”

Rangers center Brad Richards on the power play, which was 0-4

“We had a couple of good looks, where lately those pucks have been going in. It’s just not enough -we didn’t do enough to get that goal to get ahead.”
