NEW YORK (AP) - The banged-up Rangers got mixed news on the injury front heading into the start of a four-game homestand.
While top forward Rick Nash sat out Tuesday night for a fourth straight game because of a suspected concussion, key defenseman Dan Girardi was in for New York against the Winnipeg Jets. Nash skated Tuesday morning and could return Thursday against Tampa Bay.
Girardi blocked a shot with his foot late in Saturday's loss at Montreal, but X-rays were negative and he didn't miss any games. Fellow defenseman Ryan McDonagh, also injured Saturday, sat out Tuesday. He is also believed to be dealing with a concussion.
Another defenseman, Michael Del Zotto, missed a second straight game due to an undisclosed lower-body injury, but forward Darroll Powe returned after a three-game absence caused by a concussion.
Rugged forward Arron Asham sat out a third straight game because of back spasms.
