Rick Nash picked up his first assist with the New York Rangers in their season opener on Saturday and netted a rather impressive shorthanded goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Sunday’s contest.

Ultimately it proved to be too little, too late for the Rangers on Sunday. The goal was scored with just 5:15 minutes remaining in a Penguins 6-3 victory over the Rangers. Still, it might be a sign of things to come as the Rangers look to regroup after their discouraging start to the shortened season.
