Alain Vigneault said yesterday that he liked seeing Nash stand up for Stepan but that he needs Nash to play like Nash and that based on his work ethic and attitude, he will.

Ryan McDonagh told the team's website It's great and shows the kind of relationship and bonding that this team has. He said "you want trust in your linemates and teammates no matter what the situation calls for. Ideally we would like to see Nasher stay out of those but he is a big tough guy who can handle himself and is doing the right thing helping step out."

Dominic Moore told the team's website that Nash is a big guy and competitive player who can hold his own in a fight. He said that the team overall is competitive and will stick up for one another.

In the NY Post, Larry Brooks writes that while Rick Nash may be off a to a disappointing statistical start to his season, the effort he brings to the Rangers every night makes him worth every penny of his cap hit of $7.8 million.

Brooks writes, "if it is clear we?ve yet to see the full kaleidoscope of Nash?s imposing game, it is equally clear that lack of production hasn?t been for a lack of trying. The winger has been involved, he has been on the puck, he has been recording shots at a rate historically consistent with his first nine years in the NHL and he has been defensively responsible."

John Tortorella said before the game on Sunday that Nash was the leader in offensive chances and opportunities for the Rangers even though he only had two goals coming into the game.
