Rangers fire coach Vigneault after season finale

His first season (2013-14) ended up being his best in NY, as the Rangers fell to the Los Angeles Kings in Game 5 of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final.

The New York Rangers announced on Saturday night, just hours after their season ended, that they have fired head coach Alain Vigneault after five seasons with the team.

Vigneault appeared to be on the hot seat after a awful start to 2017-18, yet the Rangers rallied for a portion of the season, delaying the seemingly inevitable.

Vigneault spent five seasons at the helm, compiling a 226-147-37 album from the regular season with a playoff set of 31-30.

His firing came after the Rangers' 5-0 loss to the Philadephia Flyers to end a season in which they went 34-38-9 for just 77 points.

"I think my staff is the right staff for this job", Vigneault said. "They're experienced, we've been able to do it with veteran players, we've been able to do it with younger players, our development record". What happens with assistant Lindy Ruff?

Vigneault did a great job for the Rangers, instantly gaining the respect of his players after the team fired John Tortorella in 2013. "Once we know the team we try and put in a system, it maximizes their talent and their potential and try and mask and work on the areas that we need improvement". With 648 career wins and having also led the Vancouver Canucks to a Stanley Cup Final appearance in 2011, he'll be one of the most sought-after candidates in the coming weeks. The Rangers were eliminated in Game 7 of the conference finals the next season, and followed that with first- and second-round playoff exits.
