A Telling Quote from Kreider on Devils


It’s always interesting to hear what players say following losses. The Rangers are playing out the string with two games left at the Islanders tomorrow and at the Flyers Saturday.

After yesterday’s 5-2 embarrassment at the hands of MVP candidate Taylor Hall and the playoff bound Devils, Chris Kreider had a telling quote on the close Hudson rival that’s turned the tables. One which should sink in.

When you have one of your emerging team leaders praising the Devils by indicating how well coached they are, that speaks volumes about the current situation on Broadway. He’s far from alone.

If they don’t fire Alain Vigneault a day after it ends, something is very wrong.
