Rick Nash didn't come alive until the final minutes of Game 4.
When it comes to intensity, the Rangers for whatever reason just can't get their levels up in key games. In Game 4, only Mats Zuccarello and Henrik Lundqvist were at the top of their game. Everyone else could have taken it to another level.
The Rangers scored the first goal and they fired tons of shots on Steve Mason in the first period, but they ended the period with a 1-1 tie.
In the second period, the Rangers looked like they were skating through quicksand, and the Flyers were more aggressive when it came to pouncing on loose pucks. The Flyers scored a power-play goal in the second period, and that is all they would need to defeat the Rangers.
The third period was even worse, as the Rangers decided not to show up until the final minutes of regulation. It is unexplainable why they chose to give it their best effort in the waning moments of the game, ultimately seeing their lack of passionate execution earlier cost them Game 4.
