Alain Vigneault said on Monday that the Rangers picked a "bad time" to play an "ordinary game" and that in Game 4 they will make some adjustments and "play better, a lot better" than they did on Sunday.
Vigneualt said that a lot of the Rangers issues came from the way they managed the puck and the amount of unforced errors they committed.
He said that the Rangers are "very aware" of the issues that caused them to struggle in Game 3 and that there are small adjustments they will make heading into Game 4.
Vigneault, when asked about "execution" said that his players " will execute" and that "everyone in that room knows, to a man, that their game can be better and needs to be better with and without the puck."
Rick Nash said that the Rangers need much better execution and that they need to make tape to tape passes to limit turnovers. (NYR)
Nash pointed to the Rangers needed a 5-man forecheck and said in more general terms, "It's on us. We gotta show up, perform and be professional." (NYR)
Adam Rotter: The Rangers showed at times in Game 1 and Game 2 that they can win battles, be first on pucks and sustain offensive zone pressure. Not much, if any of that, was shown on Sunday but the Rangers have an opportunity tonight to make this a best of 3 series if they can win. A loss tonight wouldn't eliminate the Rangers, we saw them come back from down 3-1 in back to back years against the Pens and Caps, but the Rangers really don't want to find themselves in a position where they need to beat Carey Price three times in a row just to move on. If the Rangers can combine some smart decisions with the puck and urgency with the way Henrik Lundqvist is playing than they should find themselves in an even series.
