Good morning, folks. The Rangers were off on Monday, and did not practice with a scheduled day off. The team played back-to-back games this past weekend, and will face off against the Bruins Tuesday night in what should be a physical rematch of last year's Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. There's a lot to talk about from Monday, so here are your morning notes.
Rick Nash could return to action Tuesday night when the Rangers host the Bruins. [Daily News] The Mashinter move gave the Rangers an additional roster spot to bring Nash back. The last time the Rangers all-star took the ice October 8 in San Jose, a game in which he suffered a concussion that has since sidelined him. If Nash returns to the lineup Tuesday night (or even Thursday), it will mark the first time all season the Rangers will have their full compliment of players on the ice at once.
When Nash does return, it's time for the Rangers to protect their big-time forward. [NY Post]
