Nash Looking For Goals

from Tom Reed of the Columbus Dispatch, T

he last time Rick Nash went 11 games without scoring a goal, the Blue Jackets winger was a rookie playing on a line with Mike Sillinger and Grant Marshall.

In the fall of 2002, the baby-faced Nash was making $1.2 million a season for a fledgling franchise while most of central Ohio was enamored of the promise of another 18-year-old, named Maurice Clarett.

Times, fortunes and expectations have changed.

The Blue Jackets enter today’s game against Chicago as an underachieving club searching for goals and wins. During one of their worst stretches, Nash has struggled right alongside his teammates.
