In Rick Nash's first playoff game as a Rangers and just the fifth of his career he fired 16 shots with eight of them making their way on goal, but, unfortunately for the player the Blueshirts signed to provide the offense they were lacking in last year's postseason, none of them found the back of the net. Nash has just one playoff goal in his career.
Here's Nash on...
Rangers playoff hockey is finally here.

The Rangers couldn’t salvage the split in Washington, and are now heading home to New York down 2-0 in the first round. Mike Green’s overtime winner wasn’t a backbreaker for the series, but the Caps have all of the momentum on top of dominating the Rangers for a second straight game.

During the regular season,where the Rangers were 18-2-1 when striking first, the tally by Carl Hagelin with just over three minutes remaining in the first period would have been enough to assume a Rangers victory.
