New York Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault got extremely animated in Vancouver when things didn’t quite go his way.
By Robby Sabo
To say things aren’t quite going the New York Rangers way tonight in Vancouver would be a tremendous understatement. Facing off against the Canucks – their first of a three games in four nights in Western Canada swing – they currently trail 2-1 late in the third period.
They trail despite owning much of the play.
They owned all of the play in the first period especially, but couldn’t get anything past Ryan Miller. Same song, different period in the next frame.
The first goal of the game didn’t come until early in the third period. Thanks to a questionable Jarret Stoll delay of game penalty – in which he didn’t close his glove on the puck – the Canucks picked up a very nice 5-on-3.
Alexander Edler buried the wrist shot to make it 1-0.
Alain Vigneault was not happy with the terrible penalty on Stoll and let the officials have it (video above). This is about as animated as you’ll ever see Vigneault.[su_button url=”https://elitesportsny.com/2015/12/09/new-york-rangers-excellence-henrik-lundqvist/” background=”#000080″ size=”10″ wide=”yes” center=”yes” radius=”0″]NEXT: The Excellence Of Henrik Lundqvist[/su_button]
