from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
History, however, is not the biggest obstacle the Rangers have to overcome. That, instead, would be the present reality of trying to win consecutive games with effectively a half-dozen functioning forwards, none of whom named Rick Nash or Brad Richards.
Nash had another tough one, the winger a non-factor until he created a scoring chance with a rush to the net a half-minute before the Caps won it.
“I don’t know if it’s frustrating, but it’s not a good thing when you can’t help the team to win and do what you want to do out there,” said No. 61, who had two shots in OT after going through regulation with only one blocked attempt. “I just have to work myself out of this slump.”
But Nash isn’t the biggest worry. Richards is. The center, who had seemed to snap out of season-long distress with a representative final week, has backslid into a quagmire.
