Nash’s Willingness To Drive To The Net Paying Off

It’s no secret that Rick Nash is on fire this season. He’s stronger, faster and more willing to engage. However, the biggest improvement to me has been his ability to drive to the net, with and without the puck, to make a play. Stunningly, Alain Vigneault disagrees with my assessment stating the only difference between Rick Nash this season and last season is that the puck...

Lineup changes: New defense pairings with Moore out

Per Brett Cyrgalis, the coaching staff shook up the defensive pairings a bit with John Moore headed towards a suspension. The forward lines were changed up as well, likely due to the success we saw from the Mats Zuccarello-Derick Brassard-Rick Nash trio: Zuccarello-Brassard-Nash Chris Kreider-Martin St. Louis-Anthony Duclair Carl Hagelin-Dominic Moore-Lee Stempniak Tanner Glass-Kevin...

Amid Rangers’ team wide struggles, Nash needs to be the catalyst.

Right now, outside of Anaheim, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more confident and in-form goal scorer than Rick Nash. Other than the Ducks’ Corey Perry, Nash has been the best the league has to offer as October draws to a close but unlike Perry, Nash has had very little (consistent) support to this […] The post Amid Rangers’ team wide struggles, Nash needs to be the catalyst...

Rangers 5, Wild 4

The New York Rangers (5-4-0) defeated the Minnesota Wild (4-3-0) by the score of 5-4, tonight. For a box score, click here. …so how do I describe this game? …ho-hum, just another example of the Rangers thriving under adversity with Vigneault behind the bench.

The Resurgence Of Rick Nash

#457332930 / gettyimages.com Rick Nash is on pace to score 82 goals this season. While it’s still early in the season and it’s unlikely that Nash will actually achieve that mark, the New York Rangers winger is well on his way to eclipsing his goal totals from either of the last two seasons (26 and 21 respectively) en route to posting his highest season goal total as a Ranger...

Status Quo on Staal Contract; Nash’s Workout; Hagelin Is Fast; Miller Scores Again

While the Rangers defense has seemingly gotten back on track, one thing that hasn’t are contract negotiations with Marc Staal (via New York Post)… “Talks are open-ended,” Staal’s agent Paul Krepelka said. “No deadline has been given as yet, though that’s obviously subject to change as we move further into the season.” Staal is believed to be seeking approximately...

The Resurgence of Rick Nash

No one wants to say it out loud because it’s still so early, but through the first two weeks of the season at least, it’s true. Rick Nash is back. One of the premier snipers in the league since he entered it as the first overall pick in 2002, Nash’s stock had fallen somewhat since […] The post The Resurgence of Rick Nash appeared first on Two Pad Stack.

St. Louis playing an all-around game, but one thing’s missing

Martin St. Louis is doing just about everything for the Rangers this season. He has a team-leading five assists and is tied with Rick Nash with a plus-6 to lead the Blueshirts. Still, through seven games, St. Louis has only one goal. But if the inability to find the back of the net through the Rangers’ first seven games is bothering the 39-year-old, he’s not showing it. ...

How Rick Nash went from playoff bust to NHL's leading scorer

As a goal scorer, Rick Nash has always dabbled in the extremes. “I usually find myself a pretty streaky player. If they’re going in, they’re going in,” he said Tuesday night, after the New York Rangers rallied to beat the New Jersey Devils. “If they’re not … they’re definitely not.” They definitely weren’t last postseason. As the Rangers surged to the Stanley...

Rangers storm back to down Devils in OT

This is one off which the Rangers might be able to build something, but even in pulling out a 4-3 overtime victory over the Devils on Tuesday night in Newark by erasing a 3-1 third-period deficit, the Blueshirts are advised not to try this too often. Because for the first 48 minutes or so, the Devils dictated the terms of engagement, slowing down the game, owning a noteworthy edge...

Rick Nash Is Scoring Goals Again

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Six games into the new season, Nash is leading the NHL with seven goals. The Big Easy is finding open spaces and driving to the net, much as he did throughout his first nine seasons in Columbus and his first season in New York, the lockout-truncated 2012-13 in which he recorded 21 goals in 44 games. Last year, Nash’s game changed...

Rangers score two goals in four seconds in victory over Sharks (VIDEO)

The New York Rangers scored two goals in four seconds against the Sharks Sunday night and it happened so fast, San Jose goalie Alex Stalock wasn't even certain it really happened.Amazingly, the two quick scores by Martin St. Louis and Rick Nash wasn't a record.

Rangers trying to find solutions at center

Rookie Kevin Hayes compared the opportunity to center Rick Nash and ex-Boston College linemate Chris Kreider when the Rangers conclude a four-game homestand tonight against the Sharks at Madison Square Garden to being "a little kid in a candy store." The streaking Nash, who has six goals in his first five games, admittedly is less familiar with Hayes. But what he does...

Is Duclair Headed to Press Box, Back to Juniors?

It’s amazing how things can change in the course of just a few days. Early last week, we were giddy about the chemistry Anthony Duclair was forming with Martin St. Louis and Rick Nash. Now two days after the 19-year wonderkid was stapled to the bench for all but one shift in the third period Thursday night, the concern is that a spot in the line-up is not guaranteed. Here’s Rangers...

To the surprise of nobody, Rick Nash is still really good at hockey

No, Rick Nash is not going through a “resurgence“, he has always been an elite goal scorer. Even last regular season, which many pundits and talking heads point to as the start of Nash’s “struggles”, his goals per 60 minutes was higher than his last five years in Columbus. His overall points rate was down, but continue reading...
