Rangers' Nash Awakening From Slump

News: Rick Nash was a plus-3 with an assist and four penalty minutes in Thursday's 5-1 win over Ottawa.
Analysis: An rare night for Rick Nash, who ordinarily fills the goals and assist columns, but rarely provides two penalties in a game for fantasy owners. Although he extends his goal-scoring drought to a season-high eight games, Nash seems to be awakening with two assists in his last three games. The veteran forward is now just five points shy of tying a career-high 69 point campaign, set in 2007-08 with the Blue Jackets.

Rangers' Nash Quietly Snaps Drought

News: Rick Nash logged an assist in Sunday's 7-2 win over Anaheim.
Analysis: It was a collective team sigh as the team set a season high for goals scored. While the first period assist is not exactly lighting up your page, it snaps a five-game point-scoring drought and hopefully brings momentum for more. Despite the lull, Rick Nash's 39 goals, 63 points and plus-24 rating through 70 games still ranks in the league's top 20 in all three categories.

Rangers' Nash On Longest Slump Of Season

News: Rick Nash goes into Sunday's tilt with Anaheim on a five-game point-scoring drought.
Analysis: Enjoying a season of resurgence, the 30-year-old winger is currently enduring the worst slump of his fine season, just one goal shy of the third 40-goal campaign of his career. While the veteran forward's 19 goals and 35 points through 35 career games versus Sunday's opponent Anaheim bodes well, the team's offense and power play have been lackluster as of late and there's just no telling when Rick Nash will awaken from his slumber. Hang in there fantasy owners, he's bound to break out sooner or later.

Rangers' Nash Nearing New Career High

News: Rick Nash scored the game-winner in the third period of Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Islanders.
Analysis: While comparatively speaking, Rick Nash's goal-scoring pace slowed as February closed out, three goals and two assists in his last five games has helped move him back into sole possession of second in the NHL with 39 goals. The veteran forward needs to find twine just two more times to tie his career-high of 41 goals set in his sophomore season (2003-04) with Columbus. Easily a candidate for comeback player of the year, Nash has 61 points and is a plus-24 through 64 games this season.

Rangers' Nash Out Tuesday With Neck Spasms

News: Rick Nash is suffering from neck spasms and will not be available for Tuesday's game against the Flames, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Coach Alain Vigneault suggested at the Rangers' morning skate that the team was concerned about the availability for a few players for Tuesday's game, and it would appear that Rick Nash is one of them. The Rangers are calling Nash day-to-day, but it puts daily league players in quite a bind if they were planning on rolling the winger in their lineup. Instead, the newly recalled Oscar Lindberg will take the ice for his NHL debut, while Nash turns his attention to a possible return Thursday against the Coyotes.

Rangers' Nash Strikes Again Friday

News: Rick Nash potted his 37th goal of the season and had an assist in Friday's win over the Sabres.

He's contributing in almost every fantasy category, recording a plus-24 rating, seven game-winning goals and 219 shots on goal in 57 games on the season. Just Rick Nashty.

Rangers' Nash Retakes Goal Lead

News: Rick Nash scored a highlight-reel goal and added an assist Thursday in a 6-3 win over Colorado.
Analysis: The goal was a thing of beauty, as he came around from behind the goal and fired a falling-down wrister past Semyon Varlamov. It also pushed his total to 34, one up on Alex Ovechkin for the league lead. With 11 points in the last seven games, few skaters are hotter than Rick Nash right now.

Rangers' Nash Plays Assistant Tuesday

News: Rick Nash dished out three assists and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Leafs.
Analysis: The NHL's top goal scorer put only two shots on net, but his goal-heavy season line needed a few helpers to balance it out a little anyway. With his recent push -- nine points in the last six games -- Rick Nash now has himself at an even point-per-game pace over 52 contests.

Analysis: That's 26 goals and 41 points in 39 games for Rick Nash, including three tallies in his last four.

In fact, he's already surpassed entire point output from 2013-14, requiring 27 fewer games to do so.

Analysis: He has 38 points in 36 games and is but a single point from tying his season total from last season (39). But remarkably, he has just seven points on the power play. Of course we'd love to see more there, but we'll take elite even-strength production just the same.

Sure, one of the goals was a deflection off his leg, but hey, they all count. He's now just three points shy of last year's 39-point output, but in half as many games.

With 33 points to show for 29 games on the year, he's been simply dominant, and though he's going to have a hard time keeping up his currently sky-high shooting percentage, the Nash of old has officially arrived in New York.
