What Gerard Gallant said after the loss to Nashville

Gerard Gallant met with the media following the loss to Nashville and said (MSG):

  • On time being taken off the clock in the final seconds, “I don’t know how the NHL does it over there, but it was disappointing to see that and then I get no explanation for the 0.1. It might have been right, but I didn’t get no explanation until the end when the game was over, like why did it go from 0.6 to 0.1? I have no idea. Ask the NHL.”

  • On the third period compared to Detroit, “It wasn’t as good as it should have been, that was the difference, obviously and they had some looks, but they didn’t have their premier looks that they usually get and just a little off, that is all.”
  • Were any of the saves made against you memorable, “A lot of good saves. I don’t know what you are getting at, but he made a lot of good saves, I thought.”
  • Were there enough quality shots, “obviously they weren’t, they only got one.”
  • Was it a relief that everyone came out of the game healthy, “they were minor injuries, that happens every game. People block shots and they go in and you get a little bump and you go in, so, fortunate that Vesey was okay. The puck hit him in the, I think, helmet or visor so that was a scary one. He said that he was fine, so no issue there.”
  • How do guys keep their confidence when they don’t go in, “Tonight they didn’t go in for us, we had eight last game. So (laugh), you get another game. There are 82-games, you can’t worry about one night. Played well enough to win, didn’t win, so we move on and get ready for tomorrow.”
  • On the game, “I thought we played real hard, played well, lots of scoring chances, just couldn’t put the puck behind Saros tonight.” (NYR)
  • Is it hard to explain how you score 6 or 8 one night and one the next, “that is the NHL. We had some good looks, just couldn’t put it behind him.”  (NYR)
  • On the physical response, “Reavo stood up there at the end and had a good tilt and that is what we needed to do.” (NYR)
