Recap: Scott Arniel’s pre game comments

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

  • On the last 6 days, “It took a couple of days to figure out who we would play. We thought it would be Chicago and then it was LA but once we knew we all focused on what we had to cover and we went to work and all presented it to the team and hopefully it’s the game plan for success.”

  • Does everyone understand how big, “everyone knows the end prize but we are trying to focus on game one and a good start and using the break we had and fresh legs. First ten minutes in this building is tough and we need to be as good or better.”
  • What do the Kings present, “there are different areas. They will finish their checks and we need to be fast. Everything has to happen quick and we need to be on the forecheck. They are good on faceoffs and if we don’t win we need a game plan to get it back. We know what they do but it’s our game plan that is going to bring us success.”
  • Fun or nerve wracking, “nerves until the game starts but once it starts then you are in the moment and you don’t worry about it too much.”
