NHL: High Hopes for New York Rangers 

Gerard Gallant appreciates the way which Jacob Trouba bounces back from his mistakes.

Left unsaid, though, is the amount of times that the Rangers captain has had the opportunity to rebound after making a costly turnover.

Trouba had two more in Monday’s game against the Devils, but the Rangers were able to overcome them in a 4-3 overtime victory for their fourth straight win.

“He’s fine,” Gallant said on Wednesday after practice. “He’s battling hard, he’s competing hard, he’s a big part of our group. He makes mistakes like every other player in the league. Cost us one goal last game, but that happens. That’s part of the game.”  

Trouba rebounds from that real well. That’s what you like about veteran players and a guy like him. He’s not going to let a mistake affect him. If you caused a goal, well move on and get ready for the next shift. That’s what you like about pros like that.”

Trouba’s struggles have been noticed, but there are signs of improvement lately, and big things from here are expected shortly.
