Nash, symptom free following concussion, set to return to practice with Rangers on Wednesday

NEW YORK, N.Y. - After an hour-long spin on the Madison Square Garden ice, New York Rangers forward Rick Nash is ready to practice with his teammates and could rejoin the lineup soon.

Nash skated for the fourth straight day on Tuesday and remained symptom-free from a concussion sustained Oct. 8 at San Jose.

He still needs work on his conditioning before he can play in a game, but Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said before his club hosted the New Jersey Devils that Nash would practice on Wednesday.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
