The Rangers called up Oscar Lindberg from their AHL affiliate before the game. Kevin Hayes took Nash's spot on a line with Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello and Lindberg skated with Carl Hagelin and J.T. Miller.
Nash has played in all 58 of the Rangers' games this season and is second in the NHL with 37 goals. He missed 17 games last season with a concussion.
The Rangers (36-16-6) are currently second in the Metropolitan Division, two points behind the New York Islanders.
