Matt Rempe reveals his true feelings on Laviolette after being benched

Published May 14, 2024 at 10:44 PM

The New Yorks Rangers have seem to hit a bit of a rut during their playoff run with back-to-back losses to the Carolina Hurricanes, even after they added Matt Rempe back to the lineup as he missed two games as a healthy scratch.

Head coach Peter Laviolette decided to bring Matt Rempe back for game five, after deciding not to bring Jonny Brodzinski back when Filip Chytil was officially ruled out.

This appearance marked the first one for Rempe after being scratched for the prior two games, although Rempe didn't seem to be bothered after becoming a healthy scratch on back-to-back games heading into Game five.

«I can't say enough good things about Lavi and how great he's been to me,» Rempe told reporters after the Rangers' morning skate.

«The opportunities [Laviolette] has given me and how much communication he's had with me every single day, like, I love him, I'd go to war for him every day. He's the best.»

However, with the Hurricanes cutting the Rangers series lead to 3-2, their next matchup will return to Raleigh for game six, and we will see if the Rangers can put an end to the series.
