What Rick Nash said on SI NOW earlier today

Rick NashRick Nash was on SI Now earlier today and said (SI):

  • On how hungry the team is, “it was a tough loss last year and coming to a game seven at home. The one thing that we take from it is momentum, it swings in a game and in a series and if we can find that and use it to our advantage, like we should have in game seven last year, then we will be okay. “
  • On the pressure coming to New York and last season, “I’m always trying my best to produce and help the team win anyway that I can. Last year was one of those years where everything went right. I will try that again this year and try to help the team get to the playoffs and get back to the Stanley Cup Final and try to win a championship for New York.”
