I like Staal a lot but I disagree with this quote:
“I think we’re competing hard,” Staal said. “Mentally, we’re just making mistakes and losing coverage. Maybe that’s a a part of getting ready mentally. But we had a good start at Montreal, we were flying all over the place. You just don’t lose that will to win.”
It's both, Marc. The mental mistakes AND lack of compete level are why the Rangers lost.
Showing up for 20 minutes in the 1st period does not mean the team played a good effort the entire game. If the will to win was there the rest of the game, then I guess the team didn't want to win that badly.
