Nash (shoulder) wasn't able to return to the lineup before Columbus was bounced from the playoffs. Nash missed the final three games of a second-round series versus Boston after recording three points in the previous seven postseason contests. It was no doubt a disappointing year for the 29-year-old, as he saw his ice time drop to just 10:50 per game (compared to 15:25 in 2017-18) and with it, his production (12 points). The Blue Jackets signed the center coming off a career-high 41 points with Boston and have yet to see that player show up for them. Unless he can earn back some of those minutes, Nash figures to be a mid-range fantasy option at best heading into 2019-20.
Nash (undisclosed) will not suit up for Monday's Game 6 tilt against the Bruins, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports. Nash had two assists in the first three games of this series but has now missed three straight contests. It's unclear what type of injury the 6-foot-1 forward is dealing with or if he'll be ready for a possible Game 7 on Wednesday.
Nash (undisclosed) isn't expected to be available for Saturday's Game 5 against the Bruins, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports. Nash wasn't on the ice for Saturday's morning skate, so it's essentially a foregone conclusion that he'll miss a second consecutive contest due to the undisclosed injury he suffered at some point during the first three games of the series. The 29-year-old forward will hope to heal up in time for Monday's Game 6 in Columbus.
Nash (undisclosed) will not play in Thursday's Game 4 matchup with the Bruins. It's unknown what exactly is ailing Nash, but it could be an issue from any of the number of big hits he's taken this series. The Alberta native was sent to the locker room early in Game 2 with an unknown injury, but his issue Thursday could be anything. More information on this issue should surface ahead of Game 5 on Saturday.
Nash returned to the bench late in the first period of Saturday's Game 2 in Boston after going to the locker room earlier, Brian Hedger of the Columbus Dispatch reports. Nash has gotten the necessary repairs after getting mashed by Zdeno Chara earlier in the opening frame.
