Rangers send Kreider to AHL; Nash could play

The New York Rangers on Thursday sent forward Chris Kreider to the Connecticut Whale, the team's American Hockey League affiliate.

Kreider has two points in 11 games this season.

This move could mean Rick Nash, who has missed the past four games with an undisclosed injury, could be ready to return to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. At Thursday's morning skate, Nash said he would be a game-time decision.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
