Rick Nash's groin injury is to the other side of the groin he injured earlier in December.

The Rangers will likely be more careful in deciding when he returns as they do not want a recurrence of the injury. He will miss Tuesday's game and will need to practice and have the Rangers medical staff happy enough that he is fully recovered before a return can happen. Nash has 13 goals and 20 points this season in 30 games. Keep him reserved for now.

Rick Nash (groin) isn't expected to play in the next three games.

Coach Alain Vigneault said: "He won't play these next two games and then we come back from the Christmas break (Dec. 27) it's just a morning skate, so it's safe to safe at this time that he probably won't play the next three games and after that it's day-to-day. We'll see how he reacts to treatment."
