Read: The Rangers Are Their Own Best Motivation

Throughout the season, many Rangers have pointed the fact that they play for each other and put forth their effort because they don’t want to let their teammates down.

When asked by the NY Times about what kept him going during the triple OT game on Wednesday,  Ryan McDonagh said, “knowing that the guy next to me is doing it the same way. Whoever was out there was battling.”

Henrik Lundqvist said on Friday, “It’s a good feeling to have so many guys in this room that take a lot of pride in blocking shots and working hard and being the difference that way. With Cally he can score goals as well and brings a lot to the table.”
