Following the Rangers win over the Flyers, many players noted how it was their best defensive performance in a while.
On Wednesday, Alain Vigneault said that he thought the Rangers did a lot of things "the right way" on Tuesday and that it has to carry over to tonight's game.
He said that he liked how the Rangers defended, how they played without the puck and that they were able to fill the back of the net.
Vigneault said that he felt the Rangers were able to score because they were "sounder when we didn't have the puck."
Mika Zibanejad said that the Rangers are happy with how they played against the Flyers but that they can't be satisfied with just that one game. (NY Post)
He added that the Rangers need to follow up Tuesday's win with another "strong effort and strong game" and that if they don't it won't "mean anything as far as momentum goes." (NY Post)
Adam Rotter: It's about baby steps, again, for the Rangers as they look to get over their struggles of the past month or so. They need to build upon Tuesday's win and then keep building from there with strong defense, timely goals and good goaltending. If the Rangers can be smart with the puck, defend and get the odd-man rushes they like to score on, then things will certainly look up for the Rangers. Things have to start tonight though, a bad performance tonight and the Rangers are just in the same position they were in.
