Read: Pierre McGuire On The Rangers and Rick Nash

Rangers MuralOn TSN 1050 this morning, Pierre McGuire was asked about the Rangers and if they were going to score goals this season.

Pierre said, “they need Rick Nash back, that would help. When they get three power plays including a 5 on 3 for a long period of time with the game on the line they need to score there. They were 0-3 and I think they will start to get more consistent goal scoring. We saw a little of it on Saturday night when they beat Carolina 5-1 and Derek Stepan had a Hat Trick and Carl Hagelin had two.”

He adds “they desperately need the presence of Rick Nash back in the lineup and talking to people around the Rangers he isn’t even around the group right now so there is no timetable on him. One of the things I can tell you with Rick Nash, even though he is a guy that has huge Olympic pedigree, there is no guarantee he is going to be on Team Canada if he can’t get back playing pretty soon. That becomes a story as you go along because of the concussion issues. The Rangers can start scoring when they get Nash back.”
