04:12 PM ET 02.20 | New York Rangers forward Rick Nash will not be traveling with the team to Ottawa for their game against the Senators on Thursday night. The team has yet to disclose what is ailing Nash as this will be the second consecutive game he has missed. Many are speculating that he suffered a concussion last week when he was hit into the boards by Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic. However, the Rangers have not confirmed this injury and have yet to acknowledge the issue. Head coach John Tortorella stated that it was none of the media's business when reporters asked the coach about Nash's health. Nash currently leads the team in points and is tied for the team-lead in assists.

Just might be that Nash re-injured the same shoulder he hurt over in Europe. If that's the case it's unlikely to be 100% at any point this season.

they don't not let you fly because of a bad shoulder.
