Rangers rule Nash out of Saturday's game

The New York Rangers on Friday announced forward Rick Nash will miss his third straight game when the Rangers play at the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

The Rangers have not given a reason for Nash's absence.

The team also announced defenseman Steve Eminger has been recalled from the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
