The Rangers put up a season-low 19 shots on goal, including only one in the third period, during their loss to Chicago.
They were out-shot 37-19 overall and out-attempted 51 to 37 at 5 on 5.
David Quinn said after the game that "that was as poor as we played all year. One of the things I think we have done a good job of is skating and competing but that certainly wasn't the case tonight. We gotta get back to work. That is just not acceptable." (MSG)
The Rangers had 13 shot attempts at 5 on 5 in the third period, only 5 that went towards the net and 1 on goal. (Natural Stat Trick)
Quinn added that the Rangers didn't have enough people competing a shift in/shift out basis and added "we just weren't good enough in any area." (MSG)
Chris Kreider said after the game that the Rangers didn't give themselves a chance to win, weren't doing the right things and played into what the Blackhawks wanted to do. (Newsday)
Adam Rotter: The most important thing to monitor last night is how they respond at practice tomorrow and against LA on Sunday. David Quinn has made it known since being hired that things like compete level and work ethic are non-negotiable and that if you don't bring them, you likely won't play. They can't make wholesale changes to the lineup based upon one game, or the fact that they are on the West coast and away from Hartford, but this is something that Quinn will not allow to continue.
