Rangers' Nash out vs. Flyers

New York forward to miss fifth straight game because of leg injury

by NHL.com / NHL.com

New York Rangers left wing Rick Nash will not play Saturday against the Philadelphia Flyers (1 p.m. ET; NHLN, CSN-PH, MSG).

It's the fifth straight game Nash will miss because of a bone bruise in his left leg.

Nash skated on his own Tuesday and Wednesday but was not on the ice Thursday or Friday.

Defenseman Kevin Klein said he could play Saturday despite a fractured right thumb, but coach Alain Vigneault said he wanted to consult with doctors before making a lineup decision, according to NorthJersey.com.

Klein sustained the injury during a 3-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday and the Rangers said he would be out indefinitely. But Klein was a full participant in the Rangers' morning skate Thursday prior to their 4-2 win against the Minnesota Wild. Klein was not in the lineup Thursday.

He practiced again Friday before saying he could play against the Flyers.

The Rangers also re-assigned forward Jayson Megna to Hartford of the American Hockey League on Friday. Tanner Glass, who was a healthy scratch Thursday, is expected to play against the Flyers.
