Read: The Brad Richards, Ryan Callahan, Rick Nash Line

Ryan CallahanThe line of Brad Richards, between Rick Nash and Ryan Callahan, has only one goal between them since Nash returned to the lineup last Tuesday and none at even strength.

The trio has combined for 60 shot attempts in the three games and 31 on goal.

In the three games they played together, the Rangers had the following percentage of shot attempts when they were on the ice at even strength:

  • Nashville: 75% of the time
  • Dallas: 43%
  • Boston: 57%

Callahan told the Daily News that the line is “close” and that it’s only a matter of time before things start to “open up” for the Rangers.

In the NY Post, Nash and Richards spoke about how much better they feel when playing together this season than when they did last season.

Adam Rotter: There would be concern if the trio wasn’t getting chances when they were on the ice, but they are and they have looked good since being put together. As Nash continues to get better and Callahan, who only has two goals since returning from his broken thumb, finds his stride, the line will start to score. Richards, who is pointless in four games and only has one goal this month, is shooting the puck and creating chances but needs to convert. One of these games coming up will see the line breakout and hopefully get them going on a consistent basis .
