“I think he’s just let his game go,” said Rangers coach John Tortorella, who said he’s had some “heart-to-heart” talks with the former Vancouver Canucks captain. “When the staff first started, with him, there was a problem with the tempo, the speed we were trying to go, whether it was just confusion or what, all I know is that he’s skating better and I think he’s much more confident with the puck. And he’s playing well away from the puck, too.”
Asked to explain “let his game go,” Tortorella said: “Just relax and play, he’s a good player, he’s good with the puck, he can score goals, he has talent. I think he feels more comfortable in how we’re playing. I think he just said, ‘To hell with this, I need to play better’ and get some minutes.”
