A former Ranger star spoke to NY1 about the team's chances in the Stanley Cup Final.

Adam Graves was with the team for 10 years and helped bring home the Stanley Cup in 1994.

He stopped by Time Warner Cable's flagship store in Manhattan on Wednesday to meet fans and sign autographs.

While there, he explained why he's optimistic about Wednesday night's game.

"This team has played their best hockey when their backs have been against the wall, whether it was against Pittsburgh, down 3-1, their best game of the playoffs was against Montreal closing them out in game 6. So this Ranger team seems to play their best when their back is against the wall," Graves said. "So I'm expecting them to play their best hockey tonight, and again, just one game at a time, see where it goes."

Graves retired from the NHL in 2003.

The Rangers retired his number 9 in 2009.
