Rick Nash LW NYR 1 Month

Nash scored a shorthanded goal -- his league-leading 12th of the season -- and dished out a pair of assists in Tuesday's 5-0 rout of the Penguins.

Nash entered the night tied with the inactive Corey Perry in goals at 11, and he ended it tied with Tyler Seguin at 12 after Seguin scored two goals Tuesday. One of Nash's assists came on the power play. All in all, it's been a sparkling start for the big winger, who in 15 games is already nearly halfway to the 26 goals and 39 points he recorded all of last season.

Nash potted his 11th goal of the season in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Maple Leafs.

With the Ducks idle Saturday, Nash's marker vaulted him into a tie with Corey Perry for the league lead in goals. The winger has supplied a point in three straight games and has bounced back swiftly from a 2013-14 campaign that mostly qualified as a disappointment.

Nash scored his ninth goal of the season and added an assist in Monday's 5-4 home win over the Wild. He also added three hits and three shots on net.

Another game, another goal for the 2002 first-overall pick. Imagine if he could have produced like this in last year's playoffs? The Rangers could very well be defending a Stanley Cup championship right now. At any rate, with nine goals and two assists in nine games this year, Nash is looking like his old studly self again. However, not to spoil the party -- but be mindful that his shooting percentage currently sits at 31 percent, which will be impossible to sustain, especially since his career average is 12.6 percent.

Nash scored his league-leading eighth goal in Tuesday's overtime win over the Devils.

Nash has raced out to a torrid start to his 2014-15 season, tallying three more goals than any other player in the NHL. The winger drew a lot of heat for his disappearing act in the Rangers' run to the Stanley Cup last season, but his hot start through the team's first seven games has helped him quiet his critics.

Nash was essentially the Rangers' lone bright spot Thursday, scoring two goals in a 6-3 loss to the Islanders.

The Rangers have struggled out of the gate, but Nash certainly has not -- through four games, he's potted six of the team's 11 goals and leads the NHL in that category. That's one heck of a way to bounce back from a disappointing playoffs -- now the rest of the Rangers need to wake up and join him.

Nash's status for the game was in question, as he and his wife are expecting a child, but apparently it's not quite time yet. That's good for the Rangers, as Nash is off to a hot start to the year, having compiled three goals and an assist in the season's first two games.

Nash scored the opening goal, assisted on Chris Kreider's breakaway tally, then scored the game-winner late in the third period Thursday in the season opener against the Blues.

Well, good morning, Rick. That's one hell of a wakeup call to fantasy owners and Rangers fans, who suffered through the second-worst season of Nash's career last year. He worked awfully well with Kreider and Martin St. Louis on Thursday -- a promising development for a Rangers team that needs consistent top-line scoring.
