Yes, Thursday night’s embarrassing no-show loss to the rival Islanders at the Garden in the season opener for both teams was just one game, the first in a compressed 56-game 2020-21 season.

Rangers coach David Quinn, though, was determined to do everything he could to make sure it was just the one bad game.
