Peter Laviolette Addresses Media On Consistency With Defensive Pairs

Published April 1, 2024 at 7:04 PM

The Rangers have been incredible for the past two months, garnering a 21-4-1 record since the all-star break. It's even more impressive considering they have been dealing with injuries, especially on the defensive end. Jacob Trouba, Ryan Lindgren and Erik Gustafsson all missed substantial time last month.

The Rangers have overcome many obstacles to be where they are today, which is first in the league, largely due to the masterful coaching of Laviolette. I think we owe him the benefit of the doubt considering how well the team has played thus far.
