Slumping Rick Nash heartily booed by Rangers fans (VIDEO)

While Sidney Crosby was getting his first drink of water inside the net, Rangers Rick Nash‘s playoff goal scoring drought continues and is getting pretty intense.

Nash has no goals in 11 playoff games this year and has scored just two goals in 27 career postseason games. Only one of those scores have come with the New York Rangers.

For a guy that typically gets at least 30 goals per season — he finished with 26 in 2013-14, but was limited to 65 contests. 

“I understand it. It’s tough,” Nash said of being booed. "It doesn't matter what you do all year, it matters what you do in the playoffs when things count. Obviously I've been struggling."

And his glaring scoring deficiencies didn't go unnoticed by fans at Madison Square Garden where he was booed every time he had the puck Wednesday night.

Alain Vigneault think the Rangers might need a change — a wardrobe change.

"Their big boys put on the big boy pants," the Rangers coach said after a crucial Game 4 loss to Pittsburgh. "I need mine to do that."

Then he was asked if he needed to relay that message to his big boys.

Vigneault smirked and said, "I think they've picked up on it."
