New York Rangers forward Rick Nash scored his 400th NHL goal against the Vancouver Canucks at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday.
Nash scored on the power play at 5:27 of the third period off a pass from Pavel Buchnevich that beat goalie Jacob Markstrom to make it 2-2. The Rangers lost 5-3.
"It's kind of a bittersweet situation for sure," Nash said. "It's been on my mind for a while, trying to hit that number, and it was nice to do it tonight. But I could've saved it for a few more games later if we could've gotten the two points."
The 32-year-old has seven goals in 14 games this season. He had 15 in 60 games last season.
Selected with the No. 1 pick in the 2002 NHL Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets, Nash is an 11-time 20-goal scorer, eight-time 30-goal scorer, and has scored at least 40 goals three times. His NHL career high is 42, set in 2014-15 with the Rangers.
Nash, who tied for the NHL lead in goals (41) with Ilya Kovalchuk and Jarome Iginla in 2003-04, has 400 goals and 343 assists in 936 games with the Blue Jackets and Rangers in 14 NHL seasons.
Nash, who is the 92nd player to score 400 NHL goals, is ranked sixth among active players, trailing Jaromir Jagr (750), Jarome Iginla (613), Alex Ovechkin (532), Marian Hossa (505) and Patrick Marleau (484). Shane Doan has 397.
