Ryan McDonagh said on Saturday that this group of Rangers is not going to quit and that he knows that to be a "fact."
McDonagh said that the Rangers need to keep working, trust their system and play a game with more edge and more desperation.
He added that this group of players understand that their recent play is not good enough and that if they don't then "something is wrong."
McDonagh said, "our group expects more individually and as a team. We are going to find a way to get through this and that is the only way to go about it."
Rick Nash said, "it's easy to point fingers right now and get on top of each other. But good teams get through things like this and come out even better." (NYR Game Notes)
Adam Rotter: The push that this team has shown when trailing, except in Columbus, and the moments where they have actually played well are why there is every reason to believe that once the Rangers win another game they can string 2-3-4-5-6, or more, wins in a row and completely flip the script on the start of this season. For that to happen though the Rangers need to manage the puck well as they come up the ice and then find a way to convert on a few more of the chances they are generating.
