Thanks to left wing Rick Nash, the New York Rangers enjoyed a sneak preview of the new Entourage movie Thursday night.
According to the New York Daily News, Nash organized a screening for his teammates on an off night between games following a team meeting and dinner. A little rest and relaxation appeared to be in order after a tough overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.
The film, which stars Adrian Grenier, Jeremy Piven and the rest of the longtime HBO series' original cast, doesn't hit theaters until June 3.
The Rangers were in good spirits after the team's Friday morning skate, and gradually let the news of their exclusive screening slip out.
“We had some good times as a team yesterday,” center Derick Brassard said Friday. “We had a team dinner, a good meeting. We would feel pretty good about ourselves winning this game tonight and going back in our building.”
'Alain Vigneault, the Ari Gold keeping the ship on course, revealed it was Nash who set up the screening for after the meeting and dinner. He supported the endeavor. “All good,” Vingeault said.'
The Rangers trail the Lightning 2-1 heading into Friday night's Game 4.
