Nash has a ‘great day’ of skating, could be back in a couple of weeks


Rick Nash is hopeful he can get a few games under his belt before the playoffs start.

The big Rangers winger skated this morning in Pittsburgh. He’s been out since late January with a bone bruise in his leg.

“Today was a great day,” said Nash, per Newsday.

“I didn’t do anything crazy, stops and starts, so it’s going to be a bit of a process to get my legs back, my wind back, get my timing back. The big thing now is that hopefully there’s no setbacks.”

Assuming there aren’t, Nash could be back in a couple of weeks, with the playoffs set to begin a couple of weeks after that.
