Rick Nash Knows He Has To Be Better

from Katie Strang of ESPN,

If you’re not scoring when it really counts, don’t expect to slink away unscathed.

“It’s true, but that’s the way it is,” Nash said when asked about the intense scrutiny he’s facing this postseason. “The high-paid guys that are supposed to score are supposed to in the playoffs. When that doesn’t happen, this is to be expected.”

Nash was dutiful in trotting out Tuesday afternoon to field reporters' questions, many of which were different versions of those that followed the Rangers’ 1-0 loss in Game 3. Game 4 is Wednesday night here, with the Caps up 2-1 in the series.

In his even-keeled, unassuming way, Nash said all the right things.

He said that he isn't satisfied with simply playing well. That he’s got to be better. That it’s only whether the team wins or loses that really matters to him.
