PHILADELPHIA — Just hours after Alain Vigneault delivered a vehement defense of his coaching ability and resume following a 5-0 loss to end the season, the Rangers fired Vigneault late Saturday night.

The Rangers missed the playoffs for the first time since 2009-10 and for the second time in 13 seasons, and management is opting to make a change as it enters the next phase of rebuilding.

Vigneault finished with a 226-147-37 regular-season record and 31-30 postseason record.

Their game here Wednesday marked the club’s first meaningless match since April 3, 2004, their final game before the Henrik Lundqvist era began following the 2004-05 lockout.

After the game Vigneault said he expected to be back with the team.

“Yes, yes. Without a doubt,” Vigneault said. “I think my staff is the right staff for this job. This is just my opinion, but I think one of the strongest assets of this organization is its coaching staff and their experience. We’ve been able to do it with veteran players, we’ve been able to do it with younger players. Our development record, and our record, wins and losses, you know what? It’s pretty good, with older and younger players.”

During his long defense of his entire coaching career, Vigneault didn’t once take responsibility for what happened this season with the Rangers.

“At the end of the day, for coaches, you have to coach the team you have in front of you,” Vigneault said. “You try and put a system in place that maximizes their talent level and you try to mask or hide the weaknesses and you work on both areas so that your team can improve.”

The Rangers fired coach Alain Vigneault on Saturday after closing out their season with a 34-39-9 record, missing the playoffs for the first time Associate coach Scott Arniel and assistant coach Darryl Williams were also let go while Lindy Ruff remains on staff, general manager Jeff Gorton said Monday.

In his first season he led the Blueshirts to their first Stanley Cup Final appearance since 1994, ultimately falling to the Kings in five games — two of which went to double overtime and another going to overtime. The Rangers then won the Presidents’ Trophy in 2014-15 for finishing with the best regular-season record and were one game away from a second straight Cup Final appearance, losing in Game 7 of the conference final to Tampa Bay.

Henrik Lundqvist made up for a lot of the team’s defensive issues in 2015-16 until the Rangers unraveled over the final two games of their first-round, five-game knockout at the hands of Pittsburgh.

Last season the Blueshirts exceeded expectations for much of the year before their play slipped over the final month. Yet they defeated Montreal in the first round before crippling defensive miscues cost them another conference final appearance in a six-game defeat to Ottawa.
