Rangers' Rick Nash: Leads comeback win with two points

Nash scored the game-tying goal early in the third period Tuesday against Carolina, then assisted on Jimmy Vesey's game-winning power-play tally later in the frame.

Nash's unassisted tally 24 seconds into the final period was a thing of beauty -- a steal that he rushed up the ice and then backhanded right past Carolina netminder Cam Ward, dinging it off the crossbar and in. Nash had been pretty consistent to start the year, but he hit his first semi-slump recently, recording points in only two of the prior seven games. It's good for the Rangers' offense and fantasy owners alike to see him bounce right back and crack double-digit goals this early in the season; he's already just five short of last year's disappointing 15.
