Rangers coach Alain Vigneault doesn't seem to believe Rick Nash's neck injury is serious.

Nash missed Tuesday's game as a result of the ailment. "Just a bad sleep, he got a crick," said Vigneault. "I had a good feeling this morning (he wouldn't play), after our meeting but we thought the neck might loosen up…He's had a lot of work on his neck, he's started taking some medications. We'll see how he reacts." Consider Nash day-to-day.

He has 37 goals and 58 points in 57 games for the Rangers in 2014-15. He has scored nine points in his last six contests. Carl Hagelin and Mats Zuccarello also scored for New York.

Later on, Nash would bully his way for possession behind Varlamov before using his considerable reach on a wrap-around goal to make it 5-3 Rangers late in the third. With those two points Nash sits tied in sixth place for the most points in the NHL.

Rick Nash shrugged off the booing he received during the All-Star Game in Columbus.

"That's how it's been for the last three years," Nash said, "so I expected it." Nash used to be the face of the Blue Jackets' franchise, but the fact that he demanded a trade guaranteed that he would be leaving on poor terms. He ended up on Team Toews against the hometown favorites Team Foligno. Nash scored twice to help Toews earn a 17-12 victory.

Nash has been a huge force in 2014-15 for the Rangers and is tied for the NHL lead with Tyler Seguin as both have 28 goals. Nash apparently ran a lot during the summer and added some cardio and as a result came into camp in terrific shape. The results speak for themselves.
