Nash scored twice and added an assist in Wednesday's win over Ottawa. Considering he rarely sees power-play time, Nash has put together a fairly impressive season. The second-line center has racked up four goals and 15 points through 34 contests and is on track for a career season. The 28-year-old isn't consistent enough to warrant a look in most fantasy leagues, but his top-six role and scoring ability at least makes him worth a look in deeper leagues.
Nash (illness) is slated to play Saturday against the Red Wings. The same applies to Ryan Spooner, who like Nash, missed Thursday's game against the Jets after being hit by the flu bug. To date, Nash has logged two goals and 12 points in 32 games to go along with eight PIM, numbers that limit the fantasy utility of the bottom-six forward to deeper formats.
Nash (illness) is not present for warmups ahead of Thursday's game against the Jets. As a result, Nash will skip Thursday's game against the Jets, making his next opportunity to rejoin the lineup Saturday versus the Red Wings. Colby Cave was promoted from the team's AHL roster Thursday and will draw into the lineup in his place.
Nash is under the weather and will be a game-time decision against the Jets on Thursday. Nash is currently bogged down in a nine-game goalless streak and would have to wait a little longer to end the drought if he can't go versus Winnipeg. Considering he has just 13 shots on goal during this stretch, it's hard to feel encouraged that he will bury one soon. With Brad Marchand and Ryan Spooner also dealing with a bug, the Bruins may need to call up a player or two from the minors.
Nash picked up a pair of assists in Thursday's win over Arizona. Nash had one of his best games of the season, setting up linemate David Backes twice, firing six shots on goal and recording a plus-3 rating. Considering his role and the fact he isn't known for his offense, it's impressive that Nash has put up six points over his last six games. Keep in mind, however, Nash has just 11 points on the season and doesn't see power-play time, so he's mostly of value in very deep leagues.
