With the injury to Mats Zuccarello, Marty St. Louis will shift up to skate on the Rangers top line with Rick Nash and Derick Brassard.
St. Louis said that he has to be better with the puck and create more for his linemates. He said that he doesn't think he did enough to generate offense in the first round. (NHL.com)
He said that he wants to have more of an impact on the series with the Caps than he did in the first round against the Penguins. (Daily News)
Alain Vigneault said that St. Louis is demanding on himself and that as a coach that is what he wants, "you want players who want to do more and you will do that to win games." (NYR)
Vigneault said on Wednesday that he thought St. Louis' overall game in the first round was good and that he helped Carl Hagelin and Kevin Hayes with his experience. He added that Marty has been in big pressure moments before and the Rangers will need him to help lead the way. (NYR)
Dave Maloney said that moving St. Louis up with Brassard and Nash puts him back into the "elite part of the lineup" and could be a "breath of fresh air" for him. (MSG)
