The trip was a disaster, the traveled like animals for a full week before the season started and they had no practice time. Is that ideal? NO. You have other teams who came to Europe practicing in NA and playing against other NHL teams on NHL sized rinks. Did we do that? Nope. They flew over a day or two because their games.

The preseason trip should have never happened and we were handicapped from the start.

All Richards and Torts is saying is that now they can practice finally, and prepare the right way to their next game.
It IS excuses. Do you think he'd be singing the same tune if the Rangers won both games?
