Nash powers Rangers into Thanksgiving Showdown

Monday, 11.23.2015 / 9:00 AM / Weekly Primer

Brian Compton - Deputy Managing Editor

New York Rangers forward Rick Nash hasn't been the dominant power forward he was for much of last season, but his lack of production has flown under the radar thanks to the Rangers' scorching start.

But Nash was on top of his game on Saturday when he scored three goals, including the game-winner, in New York's 5-4 overtime win at the Florida Panthers.

Nash, who scored 42 goals last season, has five goals in 18 games. He'll have a chance to show a national audience that he remains one of the NHL's premier power forwards when the Rangers (15-3-2) face the Boston Bruins (10-8-1) at TD Garden on Friday in the Discover NHL Thanksgiving Showdown (1 p.m. ET; NBC, SN).

"There's no doubt Rick Nash played one of his better games this year," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said after the win Saturday. "Time will tell [whether this was a breakout game]. He had a good game tonight, and we'll see if he can follow it up."

Here are other games that should garner plenty of attention:

Twelve things we learned in first quarter of season

Predictions are great for clicks on a website and debates pretty much everywhere hockey fans gather, online or in person, but in reality they're meaningless because nobody making them has a crystal ball to see into the future. Storylines and trends have to develop. Teams and players have to deal with adversity by living through it or crashing and burning because of it.

Ultimately, a season in the NHL teaches us more than we ever could have predicted. Through 25 percent of this season, here are 12 things we have learned so far:

Brind'Amour inducted into Flyers Hall of Fame

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

PHILADELPHIA -- Rod Brind'Amour felt he never had a proper chance to say goodbye when the Philadelphia Flyers traded him to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Prior to the game between Flyers and Hurricanes on Monday at Wells Fargo Center, Brind'Amour will have the opportunity to thank the people that were most important to him during his nine seasons with the Flyers when he is inducted into their Hall of Fame.

"I left Philadelphia and it kind of felt kind of weird," Brind'Amour said. "One day I was there and then I was gone and that was it, and I never got the chance to thank the people that meant so much to me there. So this is kind of a long time coming for that. But it is great for me to do, to be able to thank the people that made Philadelphia great for me."

Senators' Karlsson early favorite for Norris Trophy

Monday, 11.23.2015 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Brian Compton - Deputy Managing Editor

It has become commonplace for Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson to contribute offensively. The Senators captain has two 70-point seasons and scored an NHL career-high 21 goals in 2014-15.

But Karlsson, who has five goals in his past five games, is much more than an offensive defenseman. He is relied on in all situations and is averaging 27:05 of ice time per game, which puts him among the top three skaters in the NHL. That's why Karlsson currently is the front-runner to win the Norris Trophy as the League's top defenseman.

Karlsson previously won the Norris in 2012 and again last season, when he had 66 points and a plus-7 rating in 82 games. With 21 points in 19 games this season, the 25-year-old likely will finish with at least 70 points for the third time in his NHL career.

Canadiens forward Gallagher out indefinitely

MONTREAL -- Montreal Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher will have surgery Monday on two fractured fingers on his left hand and will be out indefinitely, coach Michel Therrien said after a 4-2 win against the New York Islanders at Bell Centre on Sunday.

Gallagher was injured blocking a slap shot from Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk at 12:34 of the second period.

"Every time you lose a player that has an important role on any team, it's always a huge loss," Therrien said. "He was playing his best hockey, obviously. He's progressing every year, he's still a young player. It's a big loss, but what are we going to do? We can't feel sorry for ourselves. That's the way it is."

Patrick Marleau collected a pair of assists to eclipse 1,000 career points (462-539—1,001 in 1,349 GP) and help the San Jose Sharks improve to 5-0-0 on their season-high six-game road trip.

Analysis: Canadiens weather storm without Price

NEW YORK -- Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban hesitated to the point where he almost stopped walking on his way to the team bus.

The question to Subban following the Canadiens' 5-3 win against the New York Islanders at Barclays Center on Friday was if he senses anything different about the Canadiens because they survived, and thrived, without goalie Carey Price, who missed nine games with a lower-body injury before returning in Brooklyn.

"Um, I don't know about that," Subban told

Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
