What Gerard Gallant said after the win over Columbus

Gerard Gallant spoke after the Rangers win over Columbus and said (MSG):

  • On Igor Shesterkin, “He’s fine, he could have come back, he had to do the mandatory, whatever, 10-12 minutes, but he was ready to come back.”
  • Was he called off from the league, “He was called from somebody, I don’t know if it was our trainer or the league. I don’t know, but I know he had to go, but as soon as he got to the bench he said ‘I’m fine,’ but anyway you’ve got to be safe.”
