David Quinn spoke last night about how the Rangers need to stop beating themselves, saying "It's hard enough in this league to beat teams when you are not beating yourselves. We helped them win tonight, that has to stop and that is on me." (MSG)
The Rangers were called for a too many men on the ice for the third straight game and fifth time this season and Kevin Hayes told the NY Post that it's a mental thing. (NY Post)
Hayes added that "it can't happen." (NY Post)
The Rangers rank 24th in the NHL on the PK and first in the league with 5 bench minors.
On the game winning goal, Alec Martinez skated the puck from behind his own net, relatively untouched, through the neutral zone and into the Rangers zone where he fired a shot through Brendan Smith's legs and past Henrik Lundqvist.
Quinn said that the Rangers need to stop letting people skate through the neutral zone untouched and that right now they are letting players "walk right by" them. (Newsday)
