What David Quinn said before playing the Islanders

David Quinn spoke on Friday morning and said (NYR):

  • On Vitali Kravtsov, “I think that when you experience what he has gone through since he’s been drafted, you just mentally feel more prepared for the NHL and I certainly think his bubble experience helped him step into this situation and feel good about himself and what he is capable of doing. When you have success at a high level, when you get here you have a better chance of playing with a little bit of confidence and I think that is what has happened to him.”

What David Quinn said after the loss to Pittsburgh

David Quinn spoke after the Rangers loss to Pittsburgh and said (MSG):

  • On the game, “I thought we had a bunch of things lacking tonight, certainly taking advantage some of the opportunities we had certainly wasn’t what it was two nights ago, but there were other issues we had that caused us to be in the position we are right now.”
  • On being too stubborn with the puck, “Not shooting the puck has been a problem all season long, been a problem since I’ve been here. Sometimes when you win a game 8-3 or you score the amount of goals you have, you change your mindset a little bit and you do that at this level and you are gonna get what you deserve. We’ve gotta find that balance of being effective offensively and playing the right way. It’s the balancing act we are always battling and it bit us in the ass tonight.”
