Rangers Post Game Notes:

  • All of the six defensemen who played for the Rangers in tonight’s game are 25 years old or younger. In addition, four of the Blueshirts’ six defensemen who played in tonight’s contest are 21 years old or younger (Adam Fox – 21 years old; Libor Hajek – 21 years old; Ryan Lindgren – 21 years old; Matthew Robertson – 18 years old).
  • Igor Shesterkin made 36 saves in tonight’s game. He stopped 20 of 21 shots he faced in the second period, and he also stopped 31 of 33 shots he faced at even strength in the contest.
  • Lias Andersson tied for the team-high with three shots on goal and led the Rangers with eight faceoff wins (8-for-14; 57.1%) in 18:35 of ice time. Andersson logged more ice time than any other Rangers forward in tonight’s contest.

David Quinn said (NYR):

On Lias Andersson, “I liked his game at MSG, I liked his game again tonight. He’s more purposeful, has better intentions. We’ve all talked about his conditioning, he’s a little bit quicker, a little faster, doesn’t break down in shifts. There is a lot to like about his game right now. We are halfway through camp and he’s certainly in a great position competing for the positions available. He’s making a good statement.”

On Lindgren, “I haven’t found anything new about Ryan, I’ve watched him from afar for the last 7-8 years. Watched him at the US National Program and at Minnesota, I’ve got a familiarity with him. I like his toughness a lot, he competes, doesn’t shy away. An in-your-face type of player.”

Adam Rotter:

  • Well the Rangers didn’t give Igor Shesterkin much help but he was terrific in his first full game in the, preseason, NHL. Hie raw ability and skill was on display and there were definitely moments and flashes of what could be the Rangers future.
  • Lias Andersson certainly looks much more comfortable in his third training camp. If he keeps it up it won’t be a question of him making the roster, just a question of which line he centers.
  • Ryan Lindgren is making a case but it’s going to be tough to make the team. He isn’t flashy but does everything you want a defenseman to do.
