Time For Rick Nash To Start Scoring

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

The Rangers beat Washington twice at the Garden because they did get step-up performances from so many support players. They are a threat in this series because they have been the far more disciplined team, earning twice as many power plays as the Capitals (16-8) since the 6:26 mark of the second period of Game 1.

But eventually, a team requires its top scorers to score and its best players to play that way. That’s a roadmap to the Stanley Cup as old as the one the Kenora Thistles took to the chalice in 1907.

It’s on Nash to figure it out. It’s on Nash to shake free. It’s on Nash to do the job he was brought here to do after last year’s 20-game run when people decided Marian Gaborik couldn’t do it.

Now is the time for the bull’s-eye to be visible on the ice in crunch time and not on the bench.
