Quinn coached the Rangers for three seasons from 2018-21. He was hired as a shark coach on July 26.

“I can’t go to CVS and buy trust drugs,” Quinn said. “You get it by playing the right way, doing the right things and watching your teammates do the right things. At some point, I have to say enough is enough. I thought that’s what they did after 2 periods’ I thought they were just sick of losing and understood what it took for us to win. ”

Carlson from the bottom of the right faceoff circle from a pass from Timo Meyerwas behind the goal line. Carlsson continued to push his pack forward despite tripping and falling. He got up and Meyer found him wide open.

“When you get into a situation where you think they’re going to take a penalty and you realize they’re not, that’s what happened, or it’s going to be 2-0 on the contrary,” Carlsson said. He said. “I felt balanced and in control of the puck. Timo was patient and found easy goals.”

I think they had two to nine shots, so we played in good shape, but that third season, I don’t know where it came from.

“I felt like we played to win today. This is how we have to challenge and play,” Carlsson said. “We’re not going to win every game, but don’t be afraid to make mistakes or sit on your heels. Let the goalkeeper save us and somehow make it easier.” It’s been a good thing, it’s all about taking a step for us and doing it consistently.”
