The New York Rangers organization has been saluting the many first responders that have been helping fellow New Yorkers throughout this horrific ordeal. They organized the interview to talk about how each of them has dealt with dealing with the virus.

A few of the players surprised four nurses during a virtual interview to tell them how much they appreciate all they have done to help patients during this tough time.

The Nurses were told they were going to do an interview discussing their time dealing with the global pandemic. Coincidently they all happen to be New York Rangers fans so it was no surprise that the conversation turned to the Blueshirts with stories of their memories of great times watching the team play in happier times.

That’s when the nurses received a surprise they so richly deserved.  Ryan Strome, Chris Kreider, and Marc Staal crashed the virtual interview to the surprise of the nurses.

Each of the players spoke to the nurses praising all they have done to help people battling with this silent killer.

Ryan Strome might have said it best, telling the nurses “a lot of us feel really hopeless a times because you can’t really do anything about it, but you guys are able to do that, and not just for us, I think everyone is very appreciative,” as was told to Pat Pickens of NHL.com

Strome, speaking for al three players, then invited the nurses to a Rangers game at the Garden once things get back to normal.

Pretty amazing what a simple video conversation can do to raise morale for both the players and the nurses.
