New York Rangers fans roared whenever Patrick Kane appeared on the video board. They cheered when he was announced in the starting lineup. They gasped when he would stickhandle through the Ottawa Senators' defense.

Kane appreciated those reactions on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden, making his Rangers debut after they acquired him from the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday. He said he just wishes the results could have been different, for himself and the team in its 5-3 loss to the Senators.
