Rangers forward Nash leaves with injury
Rick Nash did not come out for the second period of the New York Rangers' game against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night after taking an elbow to the head early in the first period.

SAN JOSE - Rick Nash did not come out for the second period of the New York Rangers' game against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night after taking an elbow to the head early in the first period. The Rangers said he will not return.

Sharks defenseman Brad Stuart was penalized for elbowing when he hit Nash in the head 2:32 into the game. Nash played nine shifts, eight of them after the penalty, and saw 5:53 of ice time in the period, but the Rangers announced before the start of the second period that Nash would not return to the game.

Nash missed four games last season due to a concussion after a hit from Milan Lucic of the Boston Bruins

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
