Rick Nash has a chip on his shoulder after recording just one goal and five points in 12 games during the Rangers 2013 postseason run.
"Yeah, for sure," Nash said. "I think everyone should have a chip on their shoulders to perform and in order to get the job done. Last year finished off not the way we wanted it to so I think it's important to go into the playoffs with that chip on our shoulder." Nash added that winning the gold medal with Team Canada in the 2014 Winter Games has made him as hungry as ever to win the Cup. The Rangers aren't a favorite to win it all this season, but they certainly have the talent to pull it off. They will start their series against Philadelphia on Thursday. Apr 16 - 5:50 PM

Rick Nash scored the game-winning goal in the third period to lift the Rangers to a 2-1 win over Buffalo Thursday night.

The goal is the 26th of the year for the talented winger, but the fact he has recorded only 13 assists has been a serious drag on his fantasy value. Benoit Pouliot also found the back of the net for New York in the win.

Rick Nash had no points in his return to Columbus, but he did end up with nine penalty minutes.

Nash got two minutes for roughing after shoving Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky late in the second period. Nash took issue with Bobrovsky whacking him and knocking his stick away when he went to pick it up after the play was called dead. Columbus' Matt Calvert didn't like that, so he picked a fight with Nash early in the third period. Nash ended up with a fighting major and another roughing minor as a result.

Rick Nash will play his first game back in Columbus on Friday night.

He missed the Rangers' other game at Columbus earlier this season because of a concussion. "It'll still be fun playing in front of the fans. I spent a long time there, it'll be fun to go back to the city," said Nash. "Other than that, it's such a cliche thing to say but the points are more important." The Rangers and Blue Jackets are Metropolitan Division foes and they are battling for a playoff spot.

Rick Nash has been limited to two goals and five points in his last 10 games.

"It's not where I want to be," said Nash. "When I'm struggling scoring it's the same things. I've got to get back to the inside. The last couple of games I've been stuck on the outside and I haven't been getting my chances." The problem is that he hasn't exactly been living up to expectations overall this season. Nash has 20 goals and 32 points in 52 games in 2013-14.

Rick Nash and five other teammates who participated in the Olympics, are due back at New York Ranger practice on Wednesday.

Nash was the only Rangers player to win Gold at the Olympics and the Canadian team was so strong that he saw fourth line duty. Teammates Henrik Lundqvist and Carl Hagelin won silver playing for Sweden while Ryan McDonagh, Ryan Callahan and Derek Stepan came up empty handed after losing in the bronze medal game. The Rangers are back in action on Thursday so everyone will have a few days off to try and get over some of their jet lag.

Rick Nash has skated with Blackhawks forwards Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp at Team Canada's first two practices in Sochi.

Head Coach Mike Babcock's decision to keep Toews and Sharp together was a no-brainer, as the duo have combined for 47 goals and 113 points in 60 games with the Hawks. Nash had 11 goals in 15 January games, and also adds some more grit to the line. His ability to play at both ends of the rink means the trio will be called upon in a variety of situations for Canada in the Olympics.
Feb 11 - 7:30 PM

Rick Nash has now scored a goal in five straight games as he's just been red-hot since the new year.

The 29-year-old scored one goal on one SOG in Sunday's 7-3 win for the New York Rangers against the New Jersey Devils. He now has seven tallies in the last five contests, 18 goals on the season and 27 points in 37 games.

Rick Nash was the lone goal scorer for the Rangers in a 2-1 loss to St. Louis Thursday night.

Jan 23 - 10:26 PM

Rick Nash potted two goals in the Rangers’ 5-3 loss to the Islanders Tuesday night.

Nash is absolutely on fire, with nine goals in his last nine games. He now has 25 points in 35 games this season.
Jan 21 - 10:23 PM

Rick Nash has seven goals in his past eight games.

It took the struggling Nash three months and 26 games to score his seventh goal of the season, but it appears the Canadian Olympian is regaining his elite form. Just 13 days passed between his seventh and 14th goal of the season. He'll look to add to that total Tuesday night versus the Islanders.
Jan 21 - 7:28 PM

Rick Nash is averaging 17:16 minutes per contest, down from 19:58 in the shortened campaign.

In fact, Nash hasn't averaged fewer minutes per game since his rookie season. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault has taken to more evenly distributing players' ice time than some bench bosses, so that's been a big factor. Nash has 14 goals and 23 points in 34 games this season.
