The Rangers ‘Talk’ About Another Loss

from Katie Strang of ESPN New York,

In wake of yet another demoralizing loss, the Rangers invoked one of hockey's old standbys for a wayward team -- holding a closed-door player meeting after the final buzzer ended on a 4-1 dud to the Capitals.

Understandably, the Rangers had some things to discuss.

Both the desperation and urgency that has been lacking was on the agenda. The vital points squandered at home, too. Passive play and poor compete level. The list goes on and on.

But in the end?

"We can talk all we want," coach Alain Vigneault said, seemingly bewildered by the monotonous mediocrity that has befallen his team....

"With the personnel we have right now, we need to play a smart, high-percentage, good puck-movement game. If we can do that, we can be very effective, That's the type of personnel we have at this time."

Note that he said "at this time," because it is hard to imagine that nothing will change if this skid continues.
