Devils winger Ilya Kovalchuk isn't worried that Game 4 against the Rangers now becomes a must-win.

"It's only 2-1. We have to regroup and come back Monday," Kovalchuk said. "The series has just begun."

Dainius Zubrus said he didn't sense frustration when the Devils were unable to score against Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist.

"I don't think so," Zubrus said. "In a way it was about special teams."

The Devils went 0-for-5 on the power play. The Rangers were 1-for-2.
