Chris Kreider had to say following the Rangers' Game 5 loss to the Devils, and the team's determination to bounce back in the series.

Following a devastating 4-0 Game 5 loss to the New Jersey Devils, the New York Rangers now find themselves down 3-2 in the series. After starting the series strong with wins in Games 1 and 2, the Rangers have faltered, losing three consecutive games, including two at home. The third period of Game 5 proved particularly challenging for the Rangers, as they were outworked and outshot by the Devils 18-2, in the entire game the Rangers were outshot 43-23.

In a post-game interview, Chris Kreider addressed the team’s performance and their need for a strong comeback. “We’ve had a terrific fan base all year. We let them down, we let ourselves down at home. It’s up to us to show up and play the way that we want to play from puck drop. It’s time to step up and do those things. It’s time to win a hockey game.”

The Rangers made significant roster additions this season, with superstars Patrick Kane and Vladimir Tarasenko joining the team. Given these high-profile acquisitions, a first-round playoff exit would be a massive disappointment for both the fans and the organization.

As the series continues, the Rangers must dig deep to find the heart and determination necessary to turn things around. With the leadership of players like Kreider and the added talent of Kane and Tarasenko, the Rangers have the potential to bounce back and even the series.

New York’s passionate fan base is hoping for a resurgence in the team’s performance, and as Kreider said, it’s time for the Rangers to step up and win a hockey game. With the stakes higher than ever, the next matchup in this intense series is sure to be a nail-biter.
