Alain Vigneault said after the game on Friday, On the Brassard line, “since Christmas they have probably been our most consistent line. They have real good chemistry, they read off one another and support one another well. Tonight they were good with the puck and strong on the forecheck and scored two in OT.”
Derick Brassard said after the game on MSG, I thought tonight our line scored two goals but they played us really tight. We just try to bring some offense and I felt that against Philly we didn’t get rewarded but we had a big game seven and it gave us confidence
Ken Danyeko said on Hockey Night Live, “if you told me in September that your second line would be Brassard, Pouliot and Zuccarello, I would say that you are going to have a tough time making the playoffs. To their credit, especially from the second half on, have been dynamic.”
