2022-23 Rangers Regular Season

Updates from the Rangers on Sunday

5:55 PM: Gerard Gallant met with the media following practice and said (NYR):

  • Did you speak with the players about yesterday, “We chatted…had a little video session, nothing major.”
  • Is there a message you can share, “the main message is play tighter hockey, play better hockey in the third period. It’s the same stuff we talk about when we play well we are a good hockey team. When we start trying to protect the lead like we did last night instead of keep playing our game you run into trouble and that is what happened. You go home and watch some other games and the same thing happened in Florida. I listened to his press conference after the game and they stopped playing instead of trying to keep playing the game that they play.”

  • Are you considering Chytil and Panarin, “Yep. Not sure yet, but Trocheck had a maintenance day today. We’ll see, but that is a good possibility.”
  • Do you worry about the confidence of a guy like Panarin, “He scored one last night, tough break for him…no, I’m not. He’s a confident guy, he wants to put the puck in the net, he’s played some decent hockey and it’s a shame that the one didn’t count last night. Just keep playing, keep fighting through it. Gotta play a full game, it’ll happen.”
  • Does it matter if Panarin isn’t scoring as long as the team is, “Doesn’t matter to me. He’d sooner get assists, but as long as he’s playing the game the right way and playing well and making plays and getting assists, no issue from me.”

12:26 PM: At Rangers practice on Sunday, Adam Fox is not skating because he is under the weather, Vincent Trocheck is not skating because of a maintenance day and Ryan Lindgren is not skating because of an upper-body injury he suffered on Saturday. (Brooks, Stephenson)
