Rick Nash tallied the New York Rangers ' lone goal on a second-period power play in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to Montreal.
The tally originally went to Ryan McDonagh, but was given to Nash after a review found that he'd tipped it past Carey Price. It may be a cheap one, but it's still the fifth goal in three games for the 31-year-old winger. He's still sitting on disappointing season stats, but things have certainly been trending upward for Nash since the end of October.
Rick Nash scored the game-winning goal in Monday's 3-0 win over Nashville.
The goal gives Nash goals in back-to-back games after he registered a hat-trick in his previous game. The 31-year-old power forward remains one of the league's best goalscorers, and now has six goals and 14 points in 19 games. He's well off of last year's 42-goal pace, but should have no problem scoring at least 30 this season.
Rick Nash collected a pair of assists in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Blues.
It was his second straight multi-point game and it didn't take long for him to accomplish it, assisting on the New York Rangers ' first two goals of the game. Nash has now scored seven of his 10 points this season in the past four games. He still isn't putting the puck past goalies, but Nash is getting closer to a point per game.
Rick Nash slotted back into the lineup Tuesday after missing two games with a back injury and responded with a goal and an assist in a win over Carolina.
The goal was only the second of the year for Nash, who's scored 40 three times, including last year. He looked stronger on the puck Tuesday than ever before this season, so maybe a couple games out of the lineup were just what the powerful winger needed to get his head right.
Rick Nash (back) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Hurricanes.
Nash reportedly indicated to coach Alain Vigneault during practice that he was "good to go," and it was enough to convince the coach to play him. The winger missed each of the past two contests because of the injury, but he'll likely rejoin Derick Brassard and Mats Zucarello on the New York Rangers ' top line in his return.
