New York Rangers winger Rick Nash remains polite through it all, especially now that the number of people surrounding him has quadrupled, or more.
He's not scoring. He's done other things, and done a lot of those things well, and he says those are important, and they are.
But he's not scoring, as if he doesn't know it. It's 33 playoff games in a Rangers uniform now, and four goals — one in a loss to the Boston Bruins last spring, three in the Eastern Final against the Montreal Canadiens this May.
"I've got to find a way to finish some of those chances," Nash said about his Game 1, when he was one of the players, most likely, that coach Alain Vigneault said "need to bring their 'A' game."
"Just get to the inside, try to get some better opportunities, better chances," Nash went on. "I think our line has to establish more of a forecheck. I thought we had a good first period, had some chances. After that, we just had too many turnovers.
