2020-21 Rangers

Chytil practices, Georgiev against Boston

2/25/21 | 5:08PM: David Quinn met with the media after practice and said (NYR):

  • On Filip Chytil, “He’s day to day, we will see how he feels after today. It’s good to just get him back out there, obviously he was playing really good hockey before he got hurt and it will be good to get him back.”

  • Does Chytil need more practice time, “We are going to have to see him, probably, in practices a little bit more, but we will see. We haven’t talked after practice yet, it was a short one today, so we will assess that after we get together as a staff.”
  • On the message against the Bruins, “the message is the same night in and out, you just gotta find different ways to sell it because this game doesn’t  change and what this game demands for you to win is the same regardless of your opponent. The eight penalties last night really put us behind the eight-ball and you’d be hard pressed to find many teams that can win a game when taking eight penalties and the frustrating part was four of them had nothing to do with the course of play. We know we have to be mentally sharper, regardless of our opponent there is a certain way we have to play and a certain we have to approach the game and when we do that we give ourselves a chance to win.”
  • Who is the goalie tomorrow, “Georgie will play tomorrow.”
  • On the penalties from last night, “You are constantly harping on not taking undisciplined penalties and I d
  • On injury updates, “Trouba is getting close, we will know more about K’Andre on a day to day basis. Bread’s situation is fluid, we are not sure when that will get resolved and when he will be back. There is just a lot of unknowns in those instances.”
  • Did you mean to say that Trouba is getting close, “he’s getting closer, with every passing day he is getting closer. That is what I meant. (laugh)”
  • On the PK last night, “it was funny, last night I thought it was the best our PP has looked all year, we get two PP goals, did a lot of good things on the PP, could have had more, could have gone 5 for 5 on it. Our PK has been great and last night they get that great bounce off the back wall, sometimes you are going to give up a bounce, it would be nice to put it both together on the same night, we just haven’t had a chance to do that because for the most part the PP has hurt us a little bit when the PK has risen to the occasion. Last night our PP was really good and statistically we gave up two PP goals. That was the story of the night last night.”
