by | VIEW 151
The New York Rangers won 4:3 over the Vancouver Canucks. Filip Chytil extended his streak to 5 games. He is happy because of the great form he is in. "I love scoring goals," Chytil said, as quoted by nhl.com "It's a great feeling, but it's a great feeling also because we are winning the games and it's helping the team get the points.
That's what is most important and what I like the most about it."K'Andre Miller put an accent on the team's victories. As long as they win, that's the most important thing. "To be honest, it feels a little bit like last year with that type of belief," Miller said.
"Obviously, not winning in the prettiest ways all the time, but just finding a way, sticking it out to the last second and finding a way to win, really."
Vancouver coach Rick Tocchet is obviously not satisfied with the performance of several players.
Many did not give their best. In the end, mistakes cost them. "I don't think we were ready to play," -Rick Tocchet said. "I know we had the shot volume down for them, but they're a fast team. But just some guys weren't ready to play tonight.
We're looking for the result, we want to score the goal, but there's a lot more to scoring a goal," Tocchet said. "It could be chipping a body. It could be winning a battle. It could be boxing a guy out. We want to go A-to-Z too quick.
We've got to go through the progression, and tonight it showed that if we don't value certain plays, they're going to be tough games to win. You're always going to play catch-up."
Trocheck made a great pass for Kreider. "I didn't even know he was with me, I thought it was just a 1-on-1 for the majority of that rush," Trocheck said. "Last second, I see him beat his guy to the back post.
I thought I was going to shoot and then saw him wide open. It's nice to have him streaking down the wing at all times. Kaapo did a great job behind the net, gave it to me in front, and I just fake shot, put it on the backhand," Chytil said.
"Probably the player who should be with me was just stuck there when I faked the shot, and then it was almost an empty net."
