"We have no time to think about this one. We've got to get going." — Ryan McDonagh following Friday's loss to Pittsburgh
The Rangers struggled Friday night, especially defensively, in their 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh. While the team learned from their defeat, Ryan McDonagh's words of encouragement to put the loss behind them and move on to the next game, seem prescient in light of the big win over Toronto that came a day later. With the season well underway, the need for points is paramount and the team can't dwell on losses, but rather follow McDonagh's lead in learning from them. McDonagh put his words into practice by assisting on the first goal against Toronto that helped open the floodgates to seven goals in total.
