The Rangers have announced that following his MRI, Rick Nash will be out for one week after tweaking his groin last night.
Nash has 11 goals and 7 assists in 27 games this season and 4 goals and 3 assists in the past 8 games.
Over the next week or so the Rangers play @Winnipeg, @Chicago, Devils, Chicago, @Dallas.
Adam Rotter: Nash will likely miss 4-5 games if the one week prognosis holds true. It's not the best case scenario but it's better than the two months Mika Zibanejad will likely miss. Nash has been one of the Rangers best players lately and has probably been consistently their best forward the past few weeks. It's going to be hard to replace the offensive potential that he brings but also his ability on defense and the PK. Nash has stepped up while other Rangers have been out and now it's on other guys to step up for Nash while he is out.
