from Andrew Gross of Ranger Rants,
After patiently answering the media’s questions, Vigneault took out his frustrations opposite the way predecessor John Tortorella might have, that is saving his audible curse until the microphones were off and then slamming a door.
“We got exactly what we deserved,” said Vigneault, nixing the notion this was a lost opportunity for the Rangers. “We had too many guys with their B game on the ice against a Stanley Cup finalist, a team that was obviously not happy with their performance (after a 6-1 loss to the Red Wings). We came in here, I thought, with a lot on the line and should have been very motivated. We could have made this a real solid road trip instead of making it an OK road trip (3-2-0). Too many guys, their execution and their compete level…we got exactly what we deserved. We didn’t deserve to come out of here with a win and we didn’t.”
Vigneault, though, looked at the bigger picture when asked if this is the most frustrated he’s been.
“Our lack of consistency has been an ongoing issue here with a few of our players and we’re a .500 hockey team right now,” Vigneault said. “And that’s definitely not good enough.”
