Nash missed Wednesday's practice due to a case of the flu, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Though Nash was declared ready to play after missing the Rangers' final two regular-season contests with an undisclosed injury, it appears the winger has a new issue to contend with on the eve of the playoffs. James Sheppard skated in Nash's spot at Wednesday's practice, but for now, the Rangers appear optimistic that Nash will be healthy in time for Thursday's Game 1 versus the Penguins. Check back on his status after the Rangers complete their morning skate Thursday.

Nash (undisclosed) is "good to go" for Thursday's playoff opener against the Penguins, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.

Nash turned in a full practice Tuesday without incident, but he never appeared in peril of missing any playoff action, despite sitting out the final two games of the regular season. The 30-year-old finished the season with 42 goals (third-most in the NHL) and 69 points in his 79 contests, but after his disappearing act during the Rangers' run to the Stanley Cup Finals last spring, there will be plenty of pressure on him to produce for the Presidents' Trophy winners.

Nash (undisclosed) won't play Saturday against the Capitals, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.

Though he returned to practice Friday after sitting out Thursday's game against the Senators with a minor injury, Nash was still viewed as a game-day decision heading into Saturday's season finale. While Nash would likely receive clearance to play if the Rangers were playing a playoff game, the team decided to give the star winger some further time to recuperate rather than have him potentially aggravate the injury in a mostly meaningless game. With Nash ruled out Saturday, James Sheppard should benefit from another run in the lineup.

Nash (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's tilt with the Capitals.

After sitting out Thursday's game against the Senators with a minor injury, Nash returned to practice Friday. Coach Alain Vigneault said Nash would have a shot at playing if he feels good following Saturday's morning skate, but with the Rangers having already clinched the Presidents' Trophy, the forward won't push things if he's still feeling less than 100 percent.
