2020-21 Rangers

What David Quinn said after the loss to the Isles

David Quinn met with the media following the Rangers loss to the Isles and said (MSG, NHL Media):

  • Was this game humbling, “When you lose 6-1 in the fashion that we did it certainly is humbling, that is for sure.”
  • On losing Trouba, “Obviously you saw the effect it had, but I didn’t love what we were doing before he got hurt either. I thought we just weren’t playing the way we needed to play if we were gonna have a chance tonight, I thought we were sloppy, too high risk, too east/west, weren’t playing fast enough and obviously once Troubs went out our level of play dropped even more.”

  • Is there any update on Trouba and how tough would it be to lose him for any amount of time, “Obviously you lose a guy like that hurts on and off the ice. It certainly was a difficult situation to handle, but through the course of this season and every hockey season teams lose players during the course of the game and you need people to step up and carry the weight and we just didn’t have that tonight.”
  • Did the team pick up any bad habits from the NJ games, “Well, when we score goals we tend to play the way that we played tonight, sometimes we get carried away with it and against a team like this and in games like this, of this magnitude, that stuff just doesn’t work shift in and shift out, you just can’t play that way and expect to succeed. We learned the hard way tonight.”
  • Do you anticipate any lineup changes, “It’s too early to answer that question, it’s just something I haven’t thought about yet.”
