Fortunately for me, I got the opportunity to be the coach and we’re going to change it a little bit, the way the team is going to play and respond to issues like that. I don’t think they’re going to happen anymore.” Quote “I was watching the game on TV, I wasn’t a Ranger, and I didn’t like what happened that night, just as a fan,” Gallant said. “But that incident won’t be talked about until right before the season. “I think our team is going to play a good, solid game and we’ve got the guys who are going to play a physical game and a good brand of hockey. That’s the brand that wins hockey games when you can get your top players playing the way they want to play and don’t have to worry about stuff,” the coach said. “That’s going to go a long way with the New York Rangers hockey team this year.” “We’re going to play as a team this year, it’s all going to be about this team, it’s not going to be about what happened last year. Tom Wilson is a hell of a hockey player, he’s a great all-around hockey player, he’s tough and he’s hard-nosed, but we’re not going to focus on that.” https://nypost.com/2021/08/28/rangers-plotting-no-vengeance-toward-washington-capitals-tom-wilson/ 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
