Nash has 15 goals on the season, five of which have broken a tie and given the Rangers the lead.
Derek Stepan said a few weeks ago that “Rick is going to score a lot of goals and be on the score sheet a lot of games. Even when he isn’t he is creating space and wearing down defensemen. He continues to be the guy that everyone talked about at the beginning with how explosive he is and how great of a player.”
Stepan said after the Rangers win over the Jets, “Rick is a special player.”
John Tortorella said, “I just think he is in a part of his career where I think he is going to get better and, certainly no disrespect to Columbus, but a change of scenery into a city like this…..with with where this team is trying to go, I think it all works together”
