Joe Micheletti is on with Mike Francesa. Joe believes Nash is banged up. He is not driving to the net. Could be a leg or a shoulder.

Again with the banged up comment as an excuse for poor playoffs performance. Who isn't playing banged up in the playoffs? You have Cindy playing with concussion symptom. You have Zucc playing with a messed up wrist......

yea I know. Remember that time Jagr came out to play with a separated shoulder and then had to leave the game cause he injured it worse. What a complete baby and was a poor excuse for not scoring a hat trick for us that game.

I would like to hear what sort of injury Nash has before throwing him under the bus. From the looks of it, it looks like a lower body injury, even though he might be banged up in more places than one, who knows? If he has a busted knee or some other painful/ restricting injury (charlie horse, groin, muscle strain, etc) that prevents him from making real strides, I can understand he has a hard time contributing while getting special attention from the best defense the opponents can muster.

Ovechkin is in good shape and he also has trouble scoring. Although I agree Nash hasn't been as involved in the game as he usually is, as I said, I would like to hear after this playoff what happened to Nash. We're all deeply disappointed Nash hasn't contributed more, but can the rioting rest for a bit?

Nash doesn't have a history of injuries, but since we've had this problem so many times before with key players injured, this situation surely is aggravating. Never can we get all pieces to work simultaneously in harmony. That's like 10 minutes every season + playoffs.

I remember Nash taking a particularly tough hit late in the season when he was driving to the net. Went down pretty hard, into the boards too if i remember correctly. I hear a lot of people saying it's the playoffs and he should suck it up, but if it's a lower body injury all the sucking it up in the world isn't going to give him his explosiveness back. It's clear he doesn't have the same 2nd gear he had a month ago.

Good idea. Let Nash disclose an injury so he can be targeted next game.

I don't care if Nash is hurt or not. We've seen players in the past play significantly better than Nash playing hurt. In my opinion, it's not an excuse.

Idk what hit it was that did it but I definitely agree that it looks like he's injured and doesn't have his normal explosiveness.

Ovechkin is still moving on the ice and being physical like he usually is... when was the last time Nash threw a hit. for a big guy he doesnt play physical on a regular basis.. i wish he would be more aggressive.. imagine he had the mean streak of Lucic or Abdelkader...

Nash played very physical yesterday. He carried the puck from the defensive zone into the offensive zone yesterday with 3 capitals players on his back yesterday.

He's played better the last two games, think he'll take a deep breath after getting out of the first round and lighten up a bit and just play in the second.

He's been getting progressively better but he needs to score some goals.

Not gonna beat Boston with another no-show from Nash. If he gets it done, the team will get it done.

We don't play until Thursday. If Nash is nursing an injury the two days of rest should be enough to get him going. We also have two days off after Game 1.

No excuses for Nash going forward. He has to perform.

If he is truly injured, let him sit for game 1. I think it's an important game, but his health is more important throughout the series.

Seriously sick of seeing Nash so easily neutralized. 0 goals is absolutely unacceptable for our flagship forward.

Nash is a complimentary player. You're not winning the cup with guys like him or gaborik as your lead horse.

If he had half the heart or drive of Zuccarello he'd be a superstar. He's waiting for the play to come to him and not hunting down the puck and making things happen. How many times is he gonna stand behind the net waiting for the puck to be rimmed to him (which is intercepted by a defenseman) instead of lifting that D's stick and taking it himself. Unbelievable for a guy with that talent.

Gaborik scored in the playoffs though.

By that logic, if Nash is injured he should be taken out of the line up for the rest of the post-season. And so should probably half of our line up, in fear of aggravating any of their boo-boos.

Nash suffers from the "lazy disorder" where he floats around aimlessly waiting for the puck.

News flash Ricky, you need to take the puck away, not wait for it.
