Rick Nash Downgraded to Week-to-Week

Well, this isn't good. AV says Rick Nash (bone bruise) now considered week to week, not day to day. Will be shut down for next week before re-evaluation. — Andrew Gross (@AGrossRecord) February 13, 2016 Some bad news came from the Rangers' camp earlier this afternoon when it was announced that Rick Nash, who was initially thought to be days away from returning from his bone bruise, is now considered "week-to-week" and will be shut down until next week. The news concerning Nash's injury comes just one day after the Rangers were defeated in overtime by the Los Angeles Kings on the...

How Rangers are winning without Nash and McDonagh

When the Rangers return to Madison Square Garden on Friday night, Rick Nash likely will miss his eighth straight game with a bone bruise in his left leg, while Ryan McDonagh is expected to miss his third straight game as he recovers from a concussion. In the midst of an unanticipated battle to solidify a...

Rangers do not provide injury updates for Ryan McDonagh, Rick Nash

PITTSBURGH -- Is no news good news?

Rangers slowing Nash down

Rick Nash will miss his sixth straight game with a left leg bone bruise tonight when the Rangers host the Devils. And Nash did not skate on his own either on Saturday or Sunday, nor did he join the Rangers on ice for today’s full team morning skate. “We’re talking about slowing him down a little bit because we didn’t see the progression that we thought we had seen with that bone bruise,” coach Alain Vigneault said. “He’s been off the ice now for three days. Today he came in and said he was feeling a lot better so we might give him a day or two more. It’s not an exact...

McDonagh out with a concussion; AV livid at NHL as Simmonds goes unpunished

The Rangers announced this morning that captain Ryan McDonagh is out with a concussion. At the very least, he’ll miss tonight’s game against the Devils at Madison Square Garden but there is no timetable for the defenseman’s return. McDonagh suffered a concussion when he was hit by the Flyers’ Wayne Simmonds with a gloved punch to his jaw at 10:36 of the first period of the Rangers’ 3-2 shootout win at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday afternoon. Simmonds received a match penalty and a game misconduct. But coach Alain Vigneault was livid that the NHL did not issue supplemental...

Another crucial Rangers-Devils game tonight

Of course it’s a possibility. But with so many teams jockeying for playoff position in the Eastern Conference, the odds of both the Rangers and Devils reaching the postseason are not high. That only amplifies the already high level of importance when these Metropolitan Division rivals meet for the second of three times this month tonight at Madison Square Garden. The Devils won, 3-2, at Prudential Center on Tuesday in the teams’ first game after the All-Star break. The Rangers won a 3-2 shootout Saturday afternoon at Philadelphia – thanks to Keith Yandle’s tying goal with 12.9...

Injured Rick Nash lets J.T. Miller get Vigneault off his back

The Rangers skated Friday afternoon, preparing for Saturday’s game in Philadelphia, and once again were without Rick Nash. The left leg bone bruise that has kept him out since Jan. 22 continues to be an issue and coach Alain Vigneault admitted predicting Nash’s return would amount to little more than a guessing game. But as...

Pregame: The Nash-less Rangers Are Back in Action Against the Devils, 2/2

No Nash and no Cammalleri. Just two teams desperate for a win. The Rangers return to action after the All-Star break tonight on the road against John Hynes' New Jersey Devils. Both teams will be missing some firepower in the first game of the "second half" of the season. The Rangers will be without Rick Nash who is on the shelf with a bone bruise and the Devils will be without both Mike Cammalleri and former Ranger defender John Moore. Nash hopes to practice with the team tomorrow, but is still dealing with a considerable amount of pain according to Andrew Gross. Coverage from the other...

Rick Nash back on ice, progressing after leg injury

Rangers forward Rick Nash skated lightly and stickhandled for the first time in 11 days on Tuesday, testing his injured left leg at the end of the team's morning skate.

Nash skates but leg still painful

Rick Nash will miss his third straight game with a bone bruise in his left leg when the Rangers face the Devils tonight at Prudential Center. But Nash did skate this morning for the first time since injuring himself on Jan. 22 at Carolina. Nash went on the ice as the Rangers’ full morning skate was wrapping up, testing his leg, gingerly at first, at center ice. He was on the ice for approximately 20 minutes. After skating, Nash conducted a one-on-one interview with The Record to discuss the injury and his recovery and confirmed coach Alain Vigneault’s description from a day earlier that...

Three on three All-Star format works well

It passed the eye test, which, considering how hokey and flat-out boring all All-Star games have become, is quite an achievement. The new three-on-three NHL All-Star format managed to highlight the beauty, the skill and the fun of hockey while – and this is the true miracle – managing to actually inject an element of competiveness. Plus, despite pre-game concerns that 20-minute periods of three-on-three hockey would risk the players’ safety, nobody was injured. So, yes, by all means, keep this format next season. The players enjoyed it and, most importantly, the fans seemed to… To...

Minus Nash, Rangers resume play vs. Devils in Newark

The Rangers’ extended All-Star break – seven days without a game – wasn’t enough to heal one of the team’s most important players. Rick Nash, injured blocking a shot with his left leg on Jan. 22, is not expected to be in the lineup Tuesday when the Rangers resume play against the Devils in Newark. [...] The post Minus Nash, Rangers resume play vs. Devils in Newark appeared first on Rangers Report.
