What Gerard Gallant said after the win over Nashville

Gerard Gallant met with the media following the win over Nashville and said (MSG):

  • On finding ways to win, “gritty, gritty effort. Tonight, for me, was the toughest game we played so far this season and everybody battled for ice, both teams. That’s what was real good. I thought we competed hard and like I said I thought it was a gritty gritty game and we come out on top.”
  • On the Chytil, Lafreniere, Blais line, “they played real good and made some real nice plays, obviously got a couple of big goals. So they played, competed, battled hard, but that was our team tonight. Nashville came out and they played an aggressive game and we responded, real good. I liked the game, it was a battle. We talked about it after the second period the team that was going to put more pucks to the net and win more those board battles was going to win the hockey game and pretty much what happened. We had a real good third period and took control of that game.”

Updates from the Rangers on Wednesday

6:14PM: Gerard Gallant spoke after practice and said some of the following (NYR):

  • On putting Panarin and Zibanejad together, “Today they looked good out there moving around. They played well the other night, so we’ll see tomorrow but it’s a possibility for sure. “
  • On keeping them together vs splitting them up, “Well I think if you look at the people that are out, it makes a big difference in your lineup so and again I tried it the other night because we didn’t have much going along the second period and you know that’s what coaches do, I mean you gotta, you got to try and change something up and I thought it went better in the third. And they’re talented players, Bread played Mika, played with Stromer, when we get a full on lineup I like our lineup.”
