Recap: Scott Arniel’s pre game comments

Scott Arniel, Alain Vigneault Scott Arniel spoke with John Giannone on MSG prior to the Rangers/Canadiens game six:

  • Is it fun, “there is some fun to it, once the game starts you are in the moment and watching the other team what they are doing or a play we have set up, you get into it so you don’t think about it too much but leading up to the game there are some nervous moments but at the end of the day as a group you need to enjoy the moment. It’s an important game but you gotta live in the moment and have fun with it.”
  • On forgetting game five, “as a group we have always done our post game sort of look at video and shown guys clips of the right and wrong way to play and we will move onto this next one and there will be new challenges and a good gameplan that we feel that can win tonight and we will focus on that. You can’t get caught up on yesterday, you need to just think about tonight.”
  • On the game plan, “one of our strengths is that when we get through the neutral zone and not turning pucks over it allows us to play offense and we did that against Philly, we did that against Pitt and against MTL and we need to get more pucks to the net. Maybe we are making one extra play, we need to get 10-15 shots per period on this goalie and make him work.
