Rangers’ Rick Nash Leaves Practice with Injury, Considered Day-to-Day

Rick Nash

Of course, this is bad. Anytime one of your franchise players goes down it’s bad.

Of course I would never want Nash out of the lineup.

Of course this is more negative than positive….

But maybe….

But maybeeeeee this for some reason will be exactly what Nasher needed? As of now he has 1 goal and 6 points through 12 games. 1 goal! And in case you didn’t see the goal, he got hooked on a breakaway trying to score into an empty net. Keenan Thompson from D2: Mighty Ducks could have scored that goal and he’s ….a goalie! So he managed to score without even scoring. Other than that he hasn’t put the puck in the back of the net. It’s hard for someone like him to not score even by accident. It’s an upper body injury which is never good, but considering he’s only day-to-day maybe sitting out a game or two and just sitting back and watching the game from a press box will help him out.

So maybe. Just maybeeeee a tiny little upper body injury to Mr. October No Show will do something to get his year started.

In case you didn’t get the reference…

Can The New York Rangers Still Win This Series?

I…I just don’t know anymore. If they can figure out how to fucking score, maybe they’ll win. Maybe. With the exception of Lundqvist, the Rangers have been playing like shit. Scored 1 goal in 6 periods (off a caps skate) and didn’t register a shot in the last 17 minutes  of game 2. Not one shot! They scored 51 goals in their last 14 regular season games…what the fuck happened? I seriously don’t know if this team can win. Their only hope is the garden faithful helps them out for the home games. They got a couple chances last game but when you have Nash, Richards, Stepan and Callahan and score 1 goal in 6 periods it’s unacceptable. I don’t know what it is about Caps/Rangers games but I feel like both teams have trouble scoring when they play each other in the playoffs. Nash needs to start scoring, Asham needs to start fighting and Lundqvist needs to keep dominating. I really hope they come out strong and make a statement for the rest of the series but with the way they’re playing it’s tough to see a second round that involves the New York Rangers. Being down 2-1 is not bad at all. Being down 3-0 would suck balls.

With that said I got Rangers in 7. LGR
