Update 1:30pm: Per Andrew Gross, Nash will not travel with the team to Ottawa, which means both Kreider and Mashinter will play tomorrow. Gross adds that Nash may travel with the team to Montreal this weekend.
Original Post: There was a lot of panic in Rangerland yesterday when Rick Nash was a last-minute scratch due to an undisclosed injury. This is the same injury that caused him to miss the Season Subscriber Forum last week, but didn’t prevent him from playing 20 minutes in the 2-1 victory over Washington. The Rangers haven’t released any details on the injury.
Reading between the lines of the Rangers (lack of) roster moves: Nash is still questionable for tomorrow’s game against Ottawa, as the Rangers have not sent Chris Kreider nor Brandon Mashinter back to the Connecticut Whale of the AHL for their game tonight.
