"I don't think we're pushing panic buttons," Nash said. "It's not the start we wanted. We've got to get back to work. There are a lot of mistakes out there we have to correct. It's a short season, so we've got to correct them fast."
Crazy game in Phoenix with the Blackhawks. Like 3 goals in 2 minutes.
Enjoyed that one. And speaking of typical performances by former Jackets (we were, weren't we?), Vermette looked very familiar: lots of ice time, a nice garbage goal, and an uncountable number of his infamous no-look passes to no one.
Think we should tell Rangers fans about the time Rick Nash got cursed by some ancient Native American spirit?
These details should be disclosed before trades.

Aren't all players like that?
We just gotta get pucks on net.
You know, just uh, just gotta keep playing our game.
Gotta keep working at it and play our our game, not their's.
What parts of the game do you think you should work on?
All of 'em.
What times did you like your team's play and what times didn't you?
I liked the parts where we scored goals and I didn't like the parts where they did.
What players do you think could have played better?
I'm not going to get into individual players. We play as a team.
My favorite press conference is where our beat writers went to Edmonton and got the treat of "We sucked from head to toe. I'm not taking any questions, see you guys in New York".
Although the New York Rangers are 0-2-0 to start off the season, Rick Nash is off to a good start. Nash has a goal and an assist in two games this season. Rangers coach John Tortorella said Nash "has probably been our best player."
(from forecaster.ca, which cites the New York Daily News, altho I can't find any article mentioning such. emphasis added.)
