Rick Nash Plans To Return Next Week

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Rick Nash has targeted either Tuesday at the Garden against the Bruins or Thursday in Dallas for his return from the concussion that has sidelined him since Oct. 8.

“As long as there are no setbacks,” Nash said following the Rangers’ morning skate on Saturday. “Everything has been positive, and I’ve been pushing it every day.”

Nash, who will have missed 17 straight games following the weekend’s matches on Saturday at the Canadiens and Sunday at home against the Kings, has skated eight straight days. He was cleared for contact beginning with Friday’s practice.

“I don’t know if there’s going to be a moment [when I make the decision to play]. I think I need some more down-low work and a bit more practice in game-like situations,” Nash said. “I’ve really only had two practices with the team, not counting a pregame skate.

“It takes some time to get the legs back, but I think I’m feeling better than I thought I would. I seem to be keeping up with guys who have been playing, so that’s definitely a positive.”
