Rick Nash scored the first goal of the New York Rangers 2014-15 season.

Rick Nash has been quietly listening. He's heard you talking behind his back. He's heard you whispering about his grit and TUFFNESS. He's heard the insults.

Well guess what?

HI HATERS.

Nash didn't take long to find the back of to find the back of the net, kicking off the scoring for the Rangers Thursday night against the Blues, off an assist and very strong play from Chris Kreider.

It took Nash a while a while last season to net his first of the season, November 21 to be exact. Of course, Nash missed extended time with a concussion, and then didn't wait long to light the lamp when he did come back against the Dallas Stars.

Worth mentioning again what a solid play that was by Kreider. Nash had his shot blocked before this sequence, and Kreider won the puck back in the offensive zone, creating the chance.

Stick with us all night for additional updates on this game.
