Vigneault Praises Fourth-Line, Physicality

There was plenty to talk about Friday morning, a day after the Rangers’ impressive 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 1 of their best-of-seven Metropolitan Division semifinals.

After the team’s practice, Alain Vigneault spoke about the play of the fourth-line and the importance of having a line like that in the playoffs, the play of Ryan McDonagh, Brian Boyle’s skill set, the team getting more physical as the game progressed, the play of Brad Richards and Martin St. Louis and the leadership they bring and more.
