Rangers Beat Blue Jackets, Rich Nash The Center Of Attention

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

There was the goalmouth fracas at 17:06 of the second period in which Nash launched a pair of gloved fists at Bobrovsky’s throat when the goaltender swatted away No. 61’s stick after the two men had collided on the winger’s right wing drive to the net on which an apparent goal was waved off for “incidental contact.”

Incidentally, that followed a first period in which Bobrovsky twice whacked Nash across the back of the legs in a game that began nasty and only ratcheted up as it evolved.

“What set me off? Did you see? It’s that [Bobrovsky] flings my stick away when I reach down to pick it up after he gives me two whacks,” said Nash, still on a high in the postgame room. “He’s an emotional guy trying to get into the game and I’m trying to get my team the game.”

Then, there was the fight with Matt Calvert at 0:12 of third, the game still scoreless, after the wingers jostled and sparred before and immediately after the opening draw of the period, and then went down in a heap before Nash started throwing punches when both regained their feet.

“That was probably the two cross-checks to the head, the slew foot and him saying he was going with me and doesn’t care,” said Nash, who had seven shots in 14:44. “Did you see?”
