Rick Nash has not scored in the four games since he returned from injury and hasn't scored in 9 games overall, dating back to 2/26 against Columbus.
Nash has put 44 shots on goal during his nine-game scoreless streak and has a shooting percentage of 2.3% during that stretch.
In 60 games last season Nash had 15 goals and 21 assists, with a shooting percentage of 8.2% in 16:56 per game.
This season Nash has played in 59 games and has 18 goals and 15 assists and has a shooting percentage of 10.1% in 16:26 per game.
Larry Brooks wrote after the win over Minnesota that Nash seemed like he was on the verge of "breaking out." (NY Post)
After the game against Minnesota, Joe Micheletti said that Nash is someone who just "plays hard" and plays an "old style."
Joe said that Nash's teammates "really look up to him" and the ways that he prepares and puts in the effort to get ready for games.
Adam Rotter: If you were to guess before the season at which Ranger would be closing in on 30 goals and had a shooting percentage north of 15% and which Ranger had 15-18 goals and a shooting percentage of 10.1% you would probably think Rick Nash was the former and Michael Grabner was the latter. Instead it's Grabner who at times has seen to fill the back of the net with every shot he took while Nash keeps getting chance after chance and can't bury them.
Nash is noticeable every night at both ends of the rink, one of Alain Vigneault's most trusted players and still the player that teams probably need to gameplan against the most. If Nash is healthy heading into the playoffs the hope will be that he can follow up what he did in the small sample size against the Penguins last year, scoring twice in those five games. It's never a matter of effort with Nash, but hopefully all of that effort will start leading to some rewards for Nash.
