What Gerard Gallant said after the win over Arizona

Gerard Gallant met with the media after the win over Arizona and said (MSG):

  • On the game, “Great effort, from start to finish. We knew it was going to be a battle in here, they work hard every shift. We were fortunate to get that PP and get the win.”

  • On finding ways to win, “It’s never easy, back-to-back games, this is our third one already in ten games. They found a way, I thought we played a great first period, we played a lot in their zone and after that they took it to us a little bit, but overall I thought we played a good, solid game from everybody.”
  • On the Coyotes arena, “I thought it was great, honestly. I know it’s only 5,000 seats, but I thought it was excellent, didn’t even notice it during the game. I thought the atmosphere was good, everything was great.”
  • On the PP, “It wins games like it did tonight, it was huge for us. We had a lot of chances in the first period 5-on-5 also, but the PP scored two excellent goals tonight and obviously one the game.”
  • On Panarin, “he’s a big player for us and, like I said, we’ve got some high end players and when we play well he comes through for us, but what I liked about our game tonight was that it was from everybody, third line, fourth line, so-called third pair defense, I thought they all played their roles really good.”
  • On Lafreniere going to the net, “It was perfect, he was right in there. Good to see him score. He was pressing a little bit.”
  • How did Shesterkin look in the back-to-back, “Looked great, might do it again some day, never know…you never know.”
