2018-04-26 analysis Nash missed the first two games of the series due to concussion symptoms and an ear laceration, but his only point in the series -- a dish to Brad Marchand, who found the empty net -- transpired in the most important game of the season so far.

2018-04-12 analysis While Nash has already been ruled out for Thursday night's playoff opener against the Maple Leafs, he's a candidate to return to action as soon as Saturday's Game 2. In the meantime, Noel Acciari will center the Bruins' third line.

2018-04-11 analysis Nash can be effectively ruled out for Thursday's playoff opener against the Maple Leafs. In his absence, Noel Acciari is slated to center the Bruins' third line, flanked by wingers Danton Heinen and David Backes. Meanwhile, coach Bruce Cassidy relayed that Nash worked out off the ice Wednesday and will skate Thursday. With that in mind, Nash hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's Game 2. In his absence, Noel Acciari will center the Bruins' third line in Game 1, with Danton Heinen and David Backes working the wings.

2018-04-10 analysis Nash remains in the day-to-day category as Thursday's playoff opener against the Maple Leafs approaches. Once the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder returns to the lineup, third-line duty awaits, but for now Brian Gionta is skating with Danton Heinen and David Backes in place of Nash on that trio.

2018-04-09 analysis Nash is coming off a career year, in which he recorded 16 goals and 41 points in 76 games for the Bruins. Once he's back in the lineup, look for the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder to be a key cog on the team's third line. The 28-year-old is slated to become a free agent this offseason and is sure to see a boost in pay after earning $900,000 in 2017-18. We suspect that it's the Bruins' preference to retain

2018-04-07 analysis Nash has yet to begin skating, so it's not a big surprise that he will sit out the remainder of the regular season. It remains to be seen whether or not he will be ready when the postseason begins, but the pivot will likely need to take the ice soon for that to be a possibility.

2018-04-03 analysis Nash, who received 40-plus stitches after taking a puck to his head/ear area this past Saturday, won't play Tuesday against the Lightning and looks pretty iffy for Thursday's game against the Panthers as well.

2018-04-01 analysis Nash won't play Sunday against the Flyers, but he could rejoin the Bruins this coming week in Florida, where the team plays Tampa Bay on Tuesday and the Panthers on Thursday. While the 28-year-old's mishap Saturday was certainly unpleasant, it appears as though Nash avoided a major injury and should remain part of the team's stretch/postseason run.

2018-03-31 analysis Nash took a shot to the face from teammate Torey Krug during the contest, leading to his immediate departure from the contest. More information on the severity of his injury should surface either following the game or after he undergoes additional tests, but it's possible the club is taking a precautionary route with the team owning a big lead in the contest. Nash's status for the remainder of the three-game road trip remains unclear, but it's safe to rule him out for the opener Sunday against the Flyers. With him unavailable, Brian Gionta will likely draw into the contest for the shorthanded Bruins as they begin preparation for a postseason run.

2018-03-14 analysis He's now got three goals and 10 points in the last eight games, and his hot streak has resulted in some additional ice time for the 28-year-old -- he's averaged over 17 minutes a game during the last four contests, a big jump on the 15:18 he's seen on the season. He's already set new career highs with 13 goals and 38 points on the campaign, and as long as he's seeing shifts with Brad Marchand and

2018-03-07 analysis This was Nash's third multi-point showing through his past four games, and he's now up to four goals and seven assists over his past 11 contests. With Patrice Bergeron (foot) out of action, Nash has climbed into a cushy fantasy gig between Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak. Considering his recent uptick in production, as long as the 28-year-old forward is centering the top line, he's worth a look i
2018-03-07 update Nash registered two assists during Tuesday's 6-5 overtime win against Detroit.
2018-03-02 analysis Nash has four points in the past two games. Even in what has been a career year, the bottom-six forward's fantasy value remains limited. A two-game hot streak doesn't change that much.
2018-03-02 update Nash dished out two assists in Thursday's 8-4 win over the Penguins.
2018-02-28 analysis Both of Boston's goals in the first period were scored by a player named Nash, as trade deadline acquisition Rick got his new team on the board before Riley added one of his own with three seconds left in the frame. This performance pushed the longer-tenured Boston forward up to 30 points for the first time in his career.
2018-02-28 update Nash had a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win against the Hurricanes.
2018-02-13 analysis The 28-year-old winger is in the midst of a career-best season and his 26 points are already a personal high. While he's carved out a third-line role and is contributing solid even-strength numbers, his lack of power-play time significantly hinders his fantasy potential. As a result, Nash is best left to deep settings.

2018-02-08 analysis It was Nash's first goal in six games after he had established a three-game point streak in the middle of January. The Alberta native is on pace for 37 points this season, which would be a career high by a pretty decent margin. That said, barring injuries to Patrice Bergeron and/or David Krejci, Nash is not going to be anything more than a bottom-six player for the B's, and his complete lack of po

2018-01-25 analysis For now, Nash is entrenched as the Bruins' third line center and in that role he's tallied goals in two straight games. Overall, the 28-year-old has logged seven goals and 22 points in 45 contests, not eye-popping numbers, but it's worth noting that it took him 81 tilts last season to light the lamp seven times, while totaling 17 points in that span. Despite the uptick on his production, Nash is o

2017-12-28 analysis Considering he rarely sees power-play time, Nash has put together a fairly impressive season. The second-line center has racked up four goals and 15 points through 34 contests and is on track for a career season. The 28-year-old isn't consistent enough to warrant a look in most fantasy leagues, but his top-six role and scoring ability at least makes him worth a look in deeper leagues.

2017-12-23 analysis The same applies to Ryan Spooner, who like Nash, missed Thursday's game against the Jets after being hit by the flu bug. To date, Nash has logged two goals and 12 points in 32 games to go along with eight PIM, numbers that limit the fantasy utility of the B's bottom six forward to deeper formats.
