Alain Vigneault said that the Rangers have a lot of room for improvement and that every player and coach would agree.
He added that the areas where the Rangers have to improve are "pretty simple" and that they need to take things one day at a time.
On Wednesday, Vigneault said that the Rangers have "quite a few areas of improvement" and that "our situation is that we need to get better."
Vigneault said that he believes the Rangers can play a quicker game and that the forwards and defense need to get on the same page.

Adam Rotter: The Rangers have had early seasons struggles before under Alain Vigneault and, after a period of time, came together, played well, played fast and made the playoffs. The issues the Rangers are facing right now are not unique and while some of the mistakes are being made by new players learning the system, other mistakes are being made by the same players who have gone through these ups and downs before. It's been four games and despite being 1-3, the Rangers have shown positive signs this season. The PP looks really good and this team still has that ability to come back, score goals and get back into games. It will be helpful when Rick Nash and Pavel Buchnevich start getting the puck to bounce into the net, but if the Rangers can just make smart decisions with the puck, support each other coming up the ice and not force things they will be fine.
