For what it's worth, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault is claiming that Rick Nash has an undisclosed injury.

Nash is being scratched on Tuesday and the conventional wisdom is that it's because the Rangers have nothing left to play for so they consequently might as well rest their superstar. That being said, it wouldn't be surprising if Nash is something less than 100%, but that is likely true for a lot of players at this time of year. So while Nash being injured might be technically true, it's likely nothing that he couldn't play through. At the end of the day though, there's no way for us to know for certain so we'll list Nash as day-to-day even though we fully expect him to be fine for Game 1 of the playoffs.

Nash scored 41 in his sophomore season in the NHL which was the 2003-04 campaign, while he was with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Nash has had a boffo season with 69 points and a plus-30 rating.

Rick Nash recorded an assist in a 3-2 victory against Winnipeg on Tuesday.

Nash has 40 goals and 66 points in 75 games this season. This is the third time he's reached the 40-goal mark in his career. He still has a decent chance of also making this the second time in his career that he's recorded at least 70 points.
Apr 1 - 9:51 AM

Rick Nash scored his 40th goal of the 2014-15 season, but the New York Rangers lost to the Boston Bruins 4-2 on Saturday.

This marks the first time Nash has scored 40 or more since 2008-09 and the third 40+ goal season of his career. It's been a fantastic breakthrough year for the veteran power forward.
Mar 28 - 4:09 PM

Rick Nash scored the winning goal for the Rangers in Tuesday's 2-1 nail-biter against the Islanders.

Outside of an empty-net tally against the Predators last week, the goal for the first for Nash since February 20th, a span of seven games. He now stands one goal shy of 40 for the season and two away from his career-best total of 41. Kevin Hayes also registered his 13th marker in the victory.
Mar 10 - 9:54 PM

With the exception of an empty-netter on March 2, Rick Nash hasn't scored a goal since Feb. 20.

That's allowed Alex Ovechkin to open up a six-goal lead over Nash in the battle for the Rocket Richard Trophy. At this point it seems unlikely that Nash will finish the campaign as the league leader in goals scored, but Nash's recent drought isn't likely to last much longer. With 18 games left, Nash should comfortably surpass his career-high of 41 goals in a single season.

Rick Nash had an assist in the Rangers' 2-1 overtime loss against Detroit on Wednesday.

It was Nash's 60th point in 62 games this season. It's the first time he's reached the 60-point milestone since 2010-2011.

Feb 26 - 12:20 PM

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.
