New York Rangers forward Ryan Strome scored a goal and had two assists to help lead the Rangers to a 4-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers at Madison Square Garden on Monday.

“The last few nights have been just a really good team effort all around top to bottom, ‘D,’ forwards, goalies,” Strome said. “It’s been nice to see. I think maybe the (holiday) break did us well. The rink is buzzing. Guys are excited and happy. It’s a good feeling.”

Rangers coach Gerard Gallant was happy with his team’s performance following the hiatus due to the COVID-19 outbreak inside the NHL’s franchises.

“They’re great players, they get their scoring chances, but we did a great job tonight,” Gallant said. “It wasn’t about one line or one player, it was about a team group, and they did a great job.”

Meanwhile, Edmonton coach Dave Tippett noted that their goalie was the weak spot in that game.

“I thought we did a lot of things well tonight,” Tippett said. “Our goaltender wasn’t very good, and we didn’t find enough pucks at the net to get us back in the game.”

Oilers defenseman Cody Ceci also felt his team could have done better.

“It’s been frustrating, and I think it’s kind of affecting our play now,” Ceci said. “Tonight, we were right there, we start taking a few too many penalties, their power play was moving it around really well, and it ended up costing us the game.”

Up next, the Rangers face the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday and the Oilers travel to play the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday.
