Rick Nash

Five on Three: January 21st - All-Star Week

A look ahead to the All-Star Game, and a review of the first half of the season.

On this edition of Five on Three, Anthony Pucik, Matt Moro and Tara Sledjeski discuss the upcoming All-Star Game, what their favortie part of the weekend is and who they would draft first if they were captains of a team. Also, they look back on the first half of the season for the Rangers, Islanders and Devils. 

New Look Nash

The NHL's leading goal scorer is living up to his expectations this season, for now.

When the Rangers traded Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Rick Nash back in the summer of 2012, they anticipated receiving the left wing that averaged over 30 goals a season. In his first two seasons with the Blueshirts, however, Nash only scored 21 goals in the lockout shortened 2012-13 campaign and 26 last season where he only played 65 games due to a concussion. But this season, the Rangers might finally be getting the Nash they have been expecting.

Rangers' Keys to Playoff Success

The Rangers find themselves in the playoffs for the fourth straight year, but will this be the year they make it to the Cup?

The New York Rangers 45-31-6 record was good enough to earn them 96 points and second in the Metropolitan Division. This put them in the playoffs for the fourth straight season and their eighth appearance in the last nine seasons. However, this is the first season the Rangers will be in the playoffs under new head coach, Alain Vigneault.

Skating to Expectation

Why Rick Nash’s Success is Crucial for the Rangers’ Success


The New York Rangers have been one of the hottest teams in the NHL lately. Over their last ten games they are 7-2-1 and are the winners of three in a row after a 4-1 victory over the Washington Capitals Sunday night. As a result of their recent winning, they find themselves second in the Metropolitan Division.
