Recap: Scott Arniel on MSG

Scott Arniel, Alain Vigneault Scott Arniel spoke with John Giannone on MSG before the game:

  • Are the players confident, “obviously, to go into their building with our backs against the wall and to win like we did, the guys want to build on that. The guys are feeling good about the game. Game four we weren’t good, game five we were and we did a better job of getting through the neutral zone and our forecheck and it gave us confidence and an early goal.”

  • On emotion in game five and tonight, “there is a lot of it with Marty’s situation, everyone was focused and wanting to do the best for Marty and his family and I think maybe it carries again with Marty being in the building with his family. You need to use what you can to get ready for games but it has brought us together.”
  • On the PP goals, “that is a big weight off their shoulders, it’s all they have been asked about the last few weeks and rightly so and when you aren’t producing it’s frustrating and we started to make plays and had 10 shots on net and it breaks down the PKers.”
  • On the message,”just get a consistent work ethic. Our work ethic from 4 to 5 was night and day.”
