New York Rangers coach Gerard Gallant was unhappy with the skirmish at the end of his team’s third win over the Carolina Hurricanes.
A day later, he was ready to put it behind them.
“Last night in the heat of the moment you were (upset),” Gallant said Monday. “The game is over and you get a big win. Today you’re heading into a huge game, so you’re not bullshitting. There are opportunities to make sure people pay a price, but you don’t.
“You’re scared to win the game and have this series tied at 2-2 and that’s the most important thing.”
Gallant was angry after the buzzer of Sunday’s 3-1 win that cut Rangers’ series deficit to 2-1, when Carolina forward Max Domi hit New York’s Ryan Lindgren and the defenders retaliated, resulting in fighting. The coach also had a verbal exchange with Hurricanes defenseman Tony DeAngelo.
“No, I wasn’t happy with the (things) at the end of the game that they initiated,” Gallant said after Sunday’s game. “We didn’t do that when the games were close. They want to play like that, we have the guys who can match that.
The Rangers will look to even the series in Game 4 on Tuesday night (7 p.m. EDT, ESPN).
On Monday, Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour played down what happened.
“I don’t know what he’s talking about,” Brind’Amour said. “It’s not like we have guys sending messages.”
While he didn’t want to dwell on it, Gallant thought it might help his team get committed.
“I don’t think it hurts us,” he said. “I think that helps us. It’s good when guys get a little pissed off once in a while. We play better. It allows us to concentrate more.
Ryan Reaves, one of the Rangers players Gallant referred to who can respond, agreed.
“Some of these top guys, I think they’re starting to play a little more physically and fight a little more,” he said. “I think our team thrives on that. Some teams hesitate, I think we are doing well.
The Hurricanes aren’t concerned with that and expect a playoff series to get physical.
“It’s the playoffs, it’s pretty normal to get hit or hit,” Carolina forward Sebastian Aho said. “It’s intense and fast-paced and it’s a battle there, so there’s nothing new there. I’m not surprised if I get hit in a playoff game. Obviously you have to be ready for it.
Gallant shuffled his lines early in Game 3 after scoring one goal in the first two games. In the third period, he returns to the usual combinations. He indicated that there might be more changes for Game 4.
Brind’Amour mixed up his lines in practice Monday in an attempt to revive his team’s offense in the same way.
The Hurricanes struggled on the power play. After converting on 22% of their chances with the man advantage during the season, they are 11.6% in the playoffs – including 0 for 7 in this series.
“One group was actually really good, creating a lot of chances,” Brind’Amour said. “Our so-called top unit hasn’t been very good. They are the ones who really struggled. Just try to shake it a little bit there and see where it goes. … We have to find goals.
