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.

Rick Nash has the fewest power-play points (eight) among the top-20 point producers in the NHL.

The Rangers winger has 28 goals and 15 assists this season, with four of each coming with the man advantage. Notable because even some think Nash will slow down in the second half, he hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire on the power play, where he’s averaging 2:54 per game.

Tyler Seguin and Rick Nash are currently tie for the NHL lead in goals with 28.

Nash is on a better pace, collecting those 28 tallies in 44 games (compared to Seguin doing so in 46). Seguin is taking more SOG, as he has 192 to Nash's 162. As of this writing, 11 players are over 20 goals in 2014-15.

Coach Alain Vigneault came into camp with a 'purpose' this season.

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.

Martin St. Louis registered an assist in a 3-2 overtime win Tuesday night.

St. Louis will enter the All-Star break on a three-game point streak. He has 14 goals and 36 points in 44 contests in 2014-15.

Jan 21 - 11:07 AM

Chris Kreider scored his 10th goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against Ottawa.

The 10 goals may not be an exceptional total, but Kreider is a well-rounded fantasy commodity thanks to a plus-12 rating, 73 penalty minutes and 91 shots on goal. Carl Hagelin and Kevin Hayes also scored for the Blueshirts in the victory.
Jan 20 - 10:00 PM

Henrik Lundqvist turned aside 33 of 35 shots Tuesday night to secure a 3-2 overtime win against the Senators.

King Henrik has solidified his standing as one of the top fantasy netminders in the game over the past month and has now won seven of his past eight starts to improve his record to 23-9-3. His GAA now stands at 2.25 while his save percentage is .921.
Jan 20 - 9:55 PM

John Moore is expected to sit once again Tuesday night against the Ottawa Senators.

Play a few games. Sit a few games. That's the yo-yo Coach Vigneault has been playing with Moore and Matt Hunwick and it continues tonight as Moore sits for the fourth straight game. Either way, Moore is lacking in fantasy value.
Jan 20 - 6:11 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will get the start against the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.

The King continues to have another stellar season as he comes in with a 22-9-3 record, a 2.26 GAA and a .920 save percentage. The Rangers also continue to find themselves battling Boston, Pittsburgh, and Washington for playoff security. However in 10 starts versus Ottawa since 2011, Lundqvist is 3-4-3 with 24 goals against. Sometimes a team simply has a goalie's number, sometimes you have to throw history out the window. Start with confidence.
Jan 20 - 5:34 PM

Tanner Glass will miss Tuesday's game due to an upper-body injury.

Glass has an assist and 37 penalty minutes in 31 contests this season. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Jan 19 - 2:18 PM

Mats Zuccarello registered an assist in a 5-2 victory against Pittsburgh.

Jan 19 - 10:54 AM

Martin St. Louis recorded two assists in the Rangers' 5-2 win against Pittsburgh on Sunday.

St. Louis has 14 goals and 35 points in 41 games in 2014-15. With 632 career assists, he's now just one shy of Theoren Fleury for 69th place on the all-time list.
Jan 19 - 10:52 AM

Chris Kreider recorded two assists in a 5-2 win against Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Kreider has nine goals and 23 points in 41 contests this season. He's got a fair amount of offensive upside, but for he's not likely to do too much more than maintain his current point-per-game pace.
Jan 19 - 10:50 AM

Derick Brassard had a goal and an assist in the Rangers' 5-2 victory over Pittsburgh.

Brassard snapped a four-game point drought. He has 12 goals and 35 points in 41 contests in 2014-15. He should shatter his previous career-high of 47 points.
