Rangers get permission to interview top coach on radar

The Rangers were granted permission to interview Gerard Gallant for the team’s vacant head-coaching job, according to a Thursday report by TSN’s Darren Dreger.

The former Golden Knights coach has been at the top of club president Chris Drury’s list of candidates since the search began after David Quinn was relieved of his duties Wednesday, The Post’s Larry Brooks reported.

The Blueshirts needed permission from Vegas because Gallant was still under contract for the 2020-21 season.

Gallant, who is the head coach for Team Canada, is set to leave for the world championships in Latvia next week. The Rangers were hoping to interview him before that, according to Dreger.
