Artemi Panarin said that the New York Rangers will be "angrier" when they return to New York.

It makes us want to eat more. It's good when you lose. It's just how we'll respond. I think we have regained our confidence. "Be more hungry next game," he said after New York's fourth loss in a row.

In the playoffs, the Rangers have been different at home and away. They average 4.22 goals per game and give up 2.22 goals per game. The Rangers give up 3.67 goals per game on the road.

The Rangers lost in triple overtime in the opening round of the playoffs but have since won eight in a row in New York.

I hope it's going to be a home run series. That is what it appears to be so far. The Rangers are pretty good in their building according to the coach.

He thinks the Rangers can be confident. It wasn't over confident.

They need to be calm but they need to play harder. He said it was a two-out-of- three. The home ice is in our possession. We need to play better.

The Rangers' top scorer was frustrated by the home team. One even-strength goal has been scored by New York. They scored three power play goals in the series.

They won the Stanley Cup for the second year in a row. The Rangers are playing in the Eastern Conference finals. We didn't expect to blow the doors off the thing. This is a sport. The team we're playing is very good. These are going to be difficult games.

Pat Maroon opened the first period with a goal. The puck was carried deep into the Rangers' zone by the defenseman. Maroon tapped home the rebound after Shesterkin came out to the top of his crease.

The stars of the Lightning did their part. Steven Stamkos put the game away at 9:46 of the third period when he scored on a wraparound. Ondrej Palat assisted on the two goals.

At this point in the series, the Rangers are dealing with injuries. Ryan Strome was unable to play because of a lower body injury. He said he is day-to- day. "He should be fine, but we'll have to wait and see," said Gallant, the same kind of assessment he gave Strome before he left. Goodrow played in Game 4 after blocking a shot with his foot.

There are injuries on every team. The depth of our team makes us happy. Trouba thinks we can overcome injuries. Are we missing them? It's true. We don't know if they will come back. It's true. We need to be able to play.

The Carolina Hurricanes won all four of their games to open their second-round series against the Rangers.

It's the best of three. Two were won at home. Two people were lost on the road. That is the way a series is supposed to be. Chris said it would be possible to hold serve. It would have been nice to have won here.

He thinks the Rangers can handle the best.

There are three teams left here. You want their best. You would like their best. He said that they wanted to show that they can beat the best. We think we're an up and coming team. We're here. We would like to play these games.
