What David Quinn said after the loss to NJ

David Quinn met with the media following the Rangers loss to NJ and said (MSG):

  • Did you think about challenging the Miles Wood goal for kicking, “We thought about it, I just didn’t think we were going to win that challenge. It’s something we looked at and didn’t think we were gonna win it.”
  • On the PP in the third period, “we had great looks, their goalie played well. The real story was the start of the game for us, I thought the last 7-8 minutes of the first we started playing well, doing some good things, did some good things in the second and third, but not enough and you just can’t give up goals the way we did. The first goal is a bad change, we end unfortunately giving up a breakaway, it hits a pad and they go the other way. Their goals were too easy, give them credit, they competed hard, did a lot of good things, but we played 48 minutes instead of 60 and we are not going to have a chance to win night-in-night-out if that is how we are going to do it.”

Georgiev and the same lineup against the Devils on Tuesday

1/19/21 | Quinn spoke on Tuesday before the game against the Devils and said (NYR):

On putting Kakko back with Chytil, “I think there is a chemistry, I also think there is not, maybe, the pressure he might feel in getting Bread the puck all the time, I think that can happen to a guy who goes into that position, you feel so obligated to keep feeding Panarin. Maybe there is some relief to a degree that he’s playing with someone around his own age, they have a good relationship away from the rink and maybe he plays a little freer and not with all that pressure, self-induced pressure that he probably puts on himself when he plays with Strome and Panarin.”

What David Quinn said after the win over the Islanders

David Quinn spoke after the Rangers win over the Islanders and said (MSG, NYR):

  • How confident were you that they would bounce back, “I was 100% sure we weren’t going to be as bad as we were the other night. I gotta give a bunch of our leaders a ton of credit, Jacob Trouba stood tall tonight and played one of his best games as a Ranger, but the stuff he did between the last game and tonight went a long in us putting us in the right mindset. Mika, Kreider, Bread, all these guys…no one was happy with what happened the other night, it was an embarrassing performance, but it’s all about how you respond to that. I’m hoping everybody is off the GW bridge by now and everything is right after tonight.”
