NEW YORK -- Although New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault says he and his team have moved on from their 3-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Oct. 15, the way he talked Wednesday morning makes it sound like the sting of that defeat is still fresh and raw.
"We definitely … got a lesson in hockey in that particular game," Vigneault said.
That line was a variation of him saying the Canadiens "schooled" the Rangers after the game at Bell Centre last month.
Despite a 13-1-2 record since, it's easy to sense being around the Rangers they won't feel good about themselves until they avenge that loss to Montreal, which is the opportunity they have at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday (7 p.m. ET; SNE, SNO, RDS, MSG 2).
