They said it
"What we have done a good job of after a game of what you saw Thursday night, we've done a good job of bouncing back and playing much better. I'm banking on that trend continuing." -- Rangers coach David Quinn
"I think they're coming in here a little [mad] from their last game. You saw during the game when we were in New York that they're a highly skilled team with a lot of speed. We've got to match that and try to play a solid defensive game. The guys up front will take care of the offense." -- Panthers defenseman Mark Pysyk
Trouba, who left the game Thursday with an upper-body injury, participated in the morning skate and will play. Kakko is a game-time decision after he missed the loss to the Lightning with the flu.
Buchnevich has seven assists in a five-game point streak. … Huberdeau has 11 points (four goals, seven assists) in his past seven games and is one assist from passing Stephen Weiss (249) for most in Panthers history.
