Jeff Klein at the New York Times reports that the injury which held Rick Nash out of last night's game is believed to be related to a groin injury he sustained while playing with HC Davos of the Swiss National League A during the lockout.
Back in December, Nash left his Swiss team to return to New York and get the groin checked out. At the time, it was said not to be serious.
...listen, I'm no doctor nor am I privy to Nash's medical records, but I didn't see any indication that he had issues skating due to a groin injury in the Bruins or Islanders game.
...as I said last night, concussions are tricky. One night you're fine, the next you're not. Again, I don't want to scare anyone or discredit Klein, but I do find it hard to believe it's the groin.
...while most fans are unhappy with Torts staying mum on the injury, I have no problem with him protecting Nash. Why should he let other teams know what is or isn't bothering one of hi...

There was a lot of panic in Rangerland yesterday when Rick Nash was a last-minute scratch due to an undisclosed injury. This is the same injury that caused him to miss the Season Subscriber Forum last week, but didn’t prevent him from playing 20 minutes in the 2-1 victory over Washington. The Rangers haven’t released any details on the injury.
Reading between the lines of the...
With the Rangers not confirming the nature of Rick Nash's injury, there has been a ton of speculation from the flu to re-aggravating an old groin injury to a concussion.
So I decided to setup a Nash injury timeline to help us out.
It all started with a little over 13 minutes left in the Rangers 4-3 shootout victory against the Bruins on February 12th when Milan Lucic...
Expectations for this New York Rangers team could not have been much higher coming into the 2013 season. With how close the team came to a berth in the Stanley Cup Finals last season, and the acquisition of perennial 30+ goal scorer Rick Nash, many insiders were ranking this squad high among the favorites to [...]

For the third time in the last two weeks the Rangers blew a third period lead and as happened last Thursday against the Islanders, it ended in a shootout loss. With three Rangers forwards, including Rick Nash, out with injury and seemingly every key Senator on the shelf, this could have been a dud of a game. It was a huge improvement over Tuesday’s performance in Montreal...
According to Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record, Rick Nash, who did not practice today, will not accompany his teammates on their trip to face the Ottawa Senators tomorrow night.
Gross adds that the team hasn't ruled out that Nash could meet-up with them in Montreal for the game Saturday night.
John Tortorella was obviously not very forthcoming with injury details (via...
Late Update: The Rangers announced at 5PM that Rick Nash will not play tonight and Chris Kreider is in. This likely relates to the unpenalized hit he took from Milan Lucic against Boston last week that made him questionable Sunday and had many of us believing he was suffering from a concussion. Look for Marian Gaborik to move up to the top line and Kreider to get a shot on the second...
Update, 5:18 p.m.:
Rangers announce Rick Nash out tonight. Chris Kreider in for him.
— Andrew Gross (@AGrossRecord) February 19, 2013
No word on why Nash is out.
...does this mean I have to apologize for criticize Rangers recent handling of Kreider.

Tonight the Rangers are without Rick Nash as they head to Ottawa, who is without Erik Karlsson and Jason Spezza. The Sens, like the Rangers, also had a lot of roster turnover, losing Filip Kuba, Matt Carkner, Zenon Kenopka, and Bobby Butler. All that while adding Nick Foligno, Marc Methot, Mike Lundin, and Guillaume Latendresse.
The Sens gave the...
Despite a third period surge with goals from Ryan Callahan and Ryan McDonagh, the New York Rangers lost to the Ottawa Senators in a shootout, 3-2. For a complete box score of the game, check out Yahoo! Sports.

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
So this is what the NHL has as a matter of entertainment, after at least three times within a week codifying as legal checks, on which the attacking player finishes off his opponent with a forearm or elbow that drives his prey into the glass or boards.
The NHL has a quagmire like last night’s aesthetically displeasing match at the...
The 2013 NHL season is underway and is still set to be one of the best yet giving every team a greater chance to qualify for the brilliant Stanley Cup. Some hockey fans love to bet on their sport and they are all asking the same question at the moment “Who is the best team to bet on in the 2013 league?”
The first place to check is always the fans. They know the sport better...

If the New York Rangers want to have any kind of chance to both get into the postseason and go far in them, they will need a lot more offense.
In Tuesday night's 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens, the Blueshirts probably had one of their worst offensive performances. There was no sustained pressure, not enough pucks thrown at Canadiens' netminder Carey Price and not enough...
The year started off slow for the NHL hockey team in the city that never sleeps but during the last 5 games the New York Rangers have found the aggressive fore check and scoring they have needed to go 4-0-1 during that span. Their is one aspect of their game however that they have refused to improve upon or find any consistency in whatsoever. This would be the powerless power play...
