Ryan McDonagh (undisclosed injury) and Rick Nash (undisclosed injury) were out on the ice for the Rangers' AM skate prior to tonight's matchup with the Lightning. According to multiple reports, McDonagh says he will be playing tonight. Rick Nash is likely to return.
Nash expects to play, just will test himself in warmups to make sure #NYR

Absent from the morning skate was Michael Del Zotto (undisclosed injury). No update has been given.
- And just like that, the Rangers are getting healthy. Would be a huge boost to get both McD and Nash back tonight. Especially for the offense.
- Never had to write undisclosed injury so many times before.
Meanwhile, Steve Zipay of Newsday informs us of the likely scratch for tonight's game should Nash be healthy enough to play.
Chris Kreider still on ice with everyone else in the room. Likely scratch.
