Riley Nash contributed two assists in Tuesday's 6-5 overtime win against Detroit.

Coach Bruce Cassidy liked what he saw from Riley Nash on Boston's top line Tuesday night.

"He did his best Bergy (Tuesday) night," Cassidy said. "He did a job, he defended well but he wasn't on the ice with those two when he scored. He did a good job with them but he is not going to be Bergy every shift, every night, but he was one of our better players." Nash had a goal and an assist in the Bruins' 4-3 overtime win over Carolina. His 11th marker of the season was assisted by newcomer Tommy Wingels and he earned the lone helper on Charlie McAvoy's game winner.

Riley Nash will play between Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak on Tuesday night.

Patrice Bergeron is out with a fractured foot, so Nash will move up to Boston's top line against Carolina. David Backes is projected to fill in for Bergeron on the power play, though. Still, this is a great opportunity for Nash.

Riley Nash scored twice and added an assist in a 5-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night.

Nash hasn't had a three-point night in four years, but he did tonight against the Ottawa Senators. He assisted on the game's opening goal from Kevan Miller, before scoring twice in the second period. The Bruins also got goals from Danton Heinen and David Backes in the victory. Nash isn't the most enticing fantasy option, but he now has four goals and 15 points in 34 games played.

Riley Nash will return to the lineup this afternoon when the Boston Bruins matchup with the Detroit Red Wings.

Riley Nash (illness) is questionable to play Thursday night.

Nash didn't participate in the morning skate. Brad Marchand and Ryan Spooner were also feeling under the weather. They will be re-evaluated closer to game time to see if they can play against Winnipeg.

Riley Nash earned two assists and recorded six shots in Thursday's 6-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes.

Fri, Dec 8, 2017 09:00:00 AM

Riley Nash scored for the second time this season in Wednesday's 3-2 win over Tampa Bay.

Nash gave the Bruins a 2-0 lead late in the first period to extend his point streak to three straight games. He has two goals and one assist during that span. Nash has only registered eight points over 23 matches, so this is the most productive he's been in 2017-18.

Riley Nash posted a pair of assists with a plus-2 rating, six shots on goal and two hits in Wednesday's 4-2 win at Anaheim.

Nash entered the game with just one goal and three points in 16 games, so don't get terribly excited about his two helpers. He remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy pools for his physical play. He has managed 26 hits and 16 blocked shots through 17 outings, and that's where he helps fantasy owners and DFS players the most.
