Highlights of the Rangers 6-3 win over the Sabres.
Some reactions to last night’s victory and Derek Stepan’s hat trick:
“I think he’s a pretty humble guy, I’m very happy for him, how he started. If he keeps improving as a player, it’s going to be great. (Avery) has some good speed and forces the defense to make mistakes and I do the same thing. The defense made a couple of bad decisions and covered the wrong people and Derek was in the right spot.”
“I’m happy for him,” Callahan said. “It’s unbelievable. He played a great game. The whole line (also Sean Avery and Ruslan Fedotenko) did. Aves and Feds set him and that’s good to see.”
Derek Stepan on his own play
“You dream of playing an NHL game, but you don’t dream about a game like this. It felt great that I got some chances, I couldn’t believe I missed (an empty-netter), I choked under pressure. It’s great for me in kind of getting my feet wet in my first NHL game. It was nerve-wracking but I settled in.”
