Rick Nash scored in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Nash opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal just 39 seconds into the second period. Unfortunately for the Rangers, that's the only puck they'd be able to get by Pens goalie Matt Murray. Nash has one goal and three points in the first three games of the series. The Rangers are down 2-1 in the series with Game 4 going Thursday night at MSG.

Rick Nash recorded an assist in a 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh in Game 1 Wednesday night.

Nash is coming off of a disappointing regular season where he scored 10 goals and 33 points in 61 contests. The Rangers will likely need significantly more out of him now if they are to have a lengthy playoff run. The fact that Nash got a point on Wednesday is obviously a good start, though a best case scenario for the Rangers would involve Nash getting hot from a goal scoring perspective.

Rick Nash has scored three goals in his last five games.

Nash returned to action 10 games ago and was pointless in five games before the current scoring streak. He has 15 goals and 36 points in 55 games and should be worthy of a high pick in playoff pools if you think the Rangers are going deep into the playoffs.

Rick Nash's goal on Monday may mark a turning point after returning from a left leg bone bruise.

Nash had no points and a minus-three rating in five games since returning going into Monday's contest. "It’s no secret it’s been a grind the first five games after a long time away," said Nash. "Each game I’m just trying to do something to help the team and trying to fit in and get better…As far as putting pressure on myself, I put tons of pressure on myself to perform. When things don’t go the way you want, it’s frustrating but eight weeks is a long time to be off the ice. The way I see it, it’s one game. I’ve got to put a string of these games together." He has 13 goals and 34 points in 51 contests this season.

Left winger Rick Nash scored his first goal of 2016 during the New York Rangers' 4-2 triumph over the visiting Florida Panthers Monday night.

It was Nash's 13th goal of the season and first point in six games since returning from a left-leg injury that kept him out for 20 games from Jan. 24-March 8. Forwards Viktor Stalberg (ninth), Mats Zuccarello (23rd) and Tanner Glass (fourth) also notched goals for the Rangers. They received only two goals from forwards during their three-game California road trip last week. Defenseman Kevin Klein posted two assists Wednesday and now has 12 on the season.

Rick Nash has struggled to score since his return to the lineup from a left leg bone bruise.

He doesn't have a point in five games and he has 14 shots. "The first five games definitely have been a struggle for me personally," Nash said. "It's tough to find your timing and it's tough to find your speed. Ten weeks is a long time. It's hard but I've got to try and stay positive and I've got to try and help the team out somehow." Nash is slated to play with Derick Brassard and Jesper Fast on Monday night against Florida.

Rick Nash compiled 17:03 in his second game since returning to the lineup.

Nash is not having the easiest return to the New York Rangers lineup. The 31 year-old figures he is still fighting the puck. "It was a little better in this one, but it was still those little plays [I couldn’t finish]," said Nash, "The cardio and legs are fine. Timing is the hardest thing to find." He led the team in the shots category with six in his second game back after missing the previous 20 contests.

Rick Nash played 17:12 in his return to lineup on Saturday.

Nash missed 20 games because of the injury and although he didn't pick up a point in his return, he was still heavily involved in the game. "I was trying to find that competitiveness again," Nash said. "It was 7½-8 weeks, whatever it was, that’s a long time to miss. So I’m gonna have to work extra hard at finding all aspects of the game. … It felt like my hands were about a second behind what my mind’s thinking and what I want to do." He skated on a line with Viktor Stalberg and Eric Staal.

Nash might be able to return to the Rangers' lineup as soon as Saturday. If he does play there's a good chance it will be on a line with Eric Staal and that duo is one that's worth keeping an eye on. That being said, after missing 20 games rust might be a concern for Nash.
Mar 11 - 12:47 PM
