Quinn coached the Rangers for three seasons from 2018 to 21. He was assigned to coach the Sharks on July 26.

“I can’t go to CVS and buy a confidence pill,” Quinn said. “You get it by playing the right way, doing the right thing and watching your teammates do the right thing. At some point you have to say enough is enough, and I think that’s what they did after the second half. They were just tired of losing, and I think they understood what it was going to take for them. us to win.”

Carlson scored 49 seconds in overtime from the bottom of the right-hand circle from a pass from Timo Meyerwho was behind the line. Carlson kept the disc moving forward even though he stumbled and fell. He got up and found Meyer wide open.

Carlson: “I’m in a situation where I think they’re going to ask for a penalty, and when I realize they’re not, that’s either what happened or they’re going to get 2-on-0 some other way,” he said. “I found my balance well and felt like I was in control of the puck even though it might not look like it. Timo did a great job staying patient and finding me for an easy target.”

“I was very happy the first two periods, to be honest with you,” said Rangers coach Gerard Gallant. “We didn’t execute as well as we usually do in strong play and got a little frustrated, but we still controlled the play really well. I think they got nine shots after two. So we were in good shape, we played okay, but that third period, I have no idea.” Where did that come from. It was just a complete breakdown. It was embarrassing, actually.”

Jacob Troup He said. “You’re not going to be around every night, but you have to know how to play your game and adjust your game when you don’t have it. You have to simplify a little bit. I think we did. I think we tried to force a lot.”

The Rangers won the opening encounter in overtime, but they never came out of their defensive zone. The turnover led to the opportunity to score the sharks and save the Chesterkin. The Sharks won the showdown to the left of Shesterkin, they never gave up and scored.

“I felt like we played to win today and that’s how we should try to play,” Carlson said. “We’re not going to win every game, but we can’t be afraid to make mistakes or sit on our recovery and pray that our goalkeepers save us and somehow succeed. I think that was good. A step for us and it’s all about doing it consistently.”
