Great news this morning as Rick Nash is on the ice for practice, per Pat Leonard. Nash is also in a contact jersey
, which hopefully means he will be playing tonight. Leonard also noted that Ryan McDonagh is not on the ice this morning, and neither is Marc Staal. Staal is probably just off for maintenance, but McDonagh is likely still feeling the effects of that Max Pacioretty hit that didn’t warrant a suspension.
Even though McDonagh isn’t out there, let’s focus on the good news that Nash is back.
