What Chris Drury said on Saturday

  • On his emotions this week, “I’m certainly starting to catch my breath a little bit. As I’ve said, Jeff Gorton and John Davidson are great men and mentors for me and certainly leaned a lot on Jeff these last six years and was lucky to be brought back into the organization by Jeff and it was tough to see that for them, but certainly honored and thrilled to have this opportunity and happy to be here.”

What David Quinn said after the loss to Boston

David Quinn met with the media following the loss to Boston and said (MSG):

  • On playing after last night’s game, “We all understand the situation we are in, every team goes through rough stretches with injuries during Covid, ours happens to be at the end of the season when we are out of the playoff hunt and playing a team vying for the Stanley Cup and an emotional 48-hours for everybody for a variety of reasons. We play last night, they don’t, it was a challenging night to say the least and we didn’t lay down, I know the shots were what they were and it looked ugly at times, these guys competed their assess off. There is a lot of good here right now and it’s just unfortunate that we are in this position right now, it just doesn’t feel good, but it’s the situation we are in and these guys didn’t lay down tonight.”

What James Dolan says the Rangers organization is missing

5:59PM: James Dolan spoke with Larry Brooks in the NY Post and said that he saw a “weakness” in the organization that wasn’t being addressed and that the team was missing a “key component” that is preventing them from being a Stanley Cup contender.

Dolan told Brooks (NY Post):

  • The entire organization, from top to bottom, “has to be together as a team, because everyone makes a contribution” and “our organization doesn’t have that.”
  • The Rangers have “enough talent” right now to compete for the Stanley Cup
  • Other owners and managers have been telling him for the last year “how stocked” the Rangers are “with talent, but talent alone doesn’t do it.”
2020-21 Rangers Tom Wilson Situation

Alex Ovechkin and Tom Wilson reached out to Artemi Panarin

6:35PM: Darren Dreger said on TSN that both Alex Ovechkin and Tom Wilson reached out to Artemi Panrin following Wilson’s altercation with Panarin on Monday.

Dreger said “Tom Wilson and Alex Ovehkin both reached out to Artemi Panarin just to make sure he was okay after Monday’s collection of incidents. This isn’t unusual and despite what some think of Tom Wilson, he did want to make sure that Panarin was okay because that did not go the way that Wilson was hoping. Both guys checked in on Artemi Panarin to make sure that he’s and it sounds like he will be fine, but evidence that villain of the week, does in fact have a heart.”
