Nash is suffering from neck spasms and will not be available for Tuesday's game against the Flames, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.

Coach Alain Vigneault suggested at the Rangers' morning skate that the team was concerned about the availability for a few players for Tuesday's game, and it would appear that Nash is one of them. The Rangers are calling Nash day-to-day, but it puts daily league players in quite a bind if they were planning on rolling the winger in their lineup. Instead, the newly recalled Oscar Lindberg will take the ice for his NHL debut, while Nash turns his attention to a possible return Thursday against the Coyotes.
