What Gerard Gallant said after the win over Montreal

Gerard Gallant met with the media following the win over Montreal and said (MSG, NYR):

  • On the game, “we played well, the first period there wasn’t much going on, but Montreal came out and had a real good period and they shut us down a lot and we couldn’t get going and there weren’t many shots in the first, but I thought that in the second we started to get pucks to the net and things started to go our way a little bit.”

  • On Halak, “he played really well, sharp when he had to be, especially when it was 3-1 he made a couple of key saves.”
  • On  facing a team like Montreal, “we don’t worry about the team that we play against. We knew that Montreal was going to play a good game tonight, they came out and really clogged up the middle of the neutral zone and did a good job in the first period and fortunately for us we got that first goal and that was big for us, but when a team has a tough road trip like they did, we knew they were going to play hard tonight and they played well.”
  • On Chytil feeling better, “he played good, felt good today and a big goal for him at the end for him. He played a good, strong game.”
