"Banged-up" Nash to play for Rangers
NEW YORK -- A "banged-up" Rick Nash took part in pregame warmups for the New York Rangers on Sunday night, and he is in the lineup against the Washington Capitals (6 p.m. ET, NBCSN) at Madison Square Garden.

"He's banged up," Rangers coach John Tortorella said. "We're going to see if he can go."

Nash did not take part in Rangers' practice Saturday, although the day off was characterized as a maintenance day by Tortorella at that time. Later Saturday, the Rangers recalled forward Chris Kreider from Connecticut of the AHL one day after he was assigned to the Whale.

Kreider would have taken his place in the lineup, but he is a healthy scratch.


Quote of the Day

It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
