NEW YORK -- Rick Nash is back in the New York Rangers lineup after the star forward missed 17 games because of a concussion. Josh Allen Jersey . Nash passed his final test Tuesday when he skated with his teammates before the game that night against the Boston Bruins. Nash has being skating -- mostly on his own -- the past two weeks after his symptoms subsided. Watch the game on TSN, tonight at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. "Im going to go tonight," Nash said after the morning skate at Madison Square Garden. "Last night, I just thought it would be the best thing, moving forward, talking to everybody. Im excited, its kind of controlled emotion. Its been a long six weeks so Im excited to get in there. "I think the first everything is going to take awhile, whether its a hit, a shot or a pass, making different plays. Its a long time off, so its going to take some time." Vigneault plans to use Nash as he normally would before the injury -- his second concussion in eight months -- but he will talk to him throughout the game to see how hes feeling. "He is going to play a regular shift and he is going to play some power play," Vigneault said. "I would like to be able to keep him in that 15-minute range. He hasnt played for quite some time. Its almost for him like going through training camp again." Nash skated for several consecutive days and then practiced with the team last week, first in a noncontact capacity. He underwent tests Thursday. Nash logged just under six minutes of ice time the night he was hurt in the first period. It was the only game of the three he played this season in which he failed to record a point. He received just more than 15 minutes of ice time in the season opener and just under 18 minutes in the second game -- one day before he was injured. "I think well just guide it as we go along," Nash said. "Im sure (Vigneault) has had a lot of time with players coming back from injuries, so I leave that up to him." J.T. Miller will be a healthy scratch from Tuesday nights lineup. The Rangers had already sent down forward Brandon Mashinter to Hartford of the AHL on Monday. He was cleared to return Sunday and told coach Alain Vigneault the next day he was ready to go. Nash hasnt played in a game since he was injured on a hit from San Joses Brad Stuart on Oct. 8 in New Yorks third game of the season. Jim Kelly Jersey . -- Jimmie Johnson has a sixth NASCAR championship in hand and two legends within reach. Custom Buffalo Bills Jerseys . - Veteran Kings defenceman Robyn Regehr, sidelined since Game 1 of the Anaheim series, says hes close to returning. http://www.authenticbillsfanatic.com/c-86-bills-josh-allen-jersey.aspx . But that changed when he committed a five-minute major penalty and helped pave the way for a comeback by the Philadelphia Flyers. Vincent Lecavalier scored at 2:45 of overtime and the Flyers rallied from a two-goal deficit for a 5-4 victory on Sunday.Four years ago, the question surrounding who would be the first pick in the NHL Draft was, Taylor or Tyler? For 2015, its Mac or Jack? Erie Otters star forward Connor McDavid and Boston University forward Jack Eichel occupy the first two spots on TSN Director of Scouting Craig Buttons debut ranking for the 2014-15 season. Click here for Buttons September Rankings. McDavid has already been on the radar of NHL clubs for a few seasons and will be much-discussed heading into next years Draft Lottery. Eichel was a standout for the U.S. National Under-18 program and was the youngest player to skate for the Americans at last years World Junior Championship. He is entering his first season of college hockey and turns 18 next month. In both players, Button sees the kind of prospect that can make a huge and immediate impact on the team that drafts him. "I think they are generational talents and as their play will show," Button explains. "They are capable of making significant imprints upon a game. As the season progresses it will not solely be about their accomplishments but about their impact on a franchise. "The excitement of a fan base will be palpable knowing that while their team is weak, one of these players could change the fortunes of a franchise." McDavid will be building on an OHL season in which he scored 28 goals and 71 assists in 56 games and finished fourth in league scoring. Eichel averaged nearly two points per game for the U-18 team with 20 goals and 25 assists in 24 games. Defenceman Noah Hanifin of Boston College takes the third spot on the list and Button believes hes a name that the hockey world will be hearing more often. "Noah is a calm in the eye of the storm type player," says Button. "The faster the game moves, his capability of maintaining control increases. He has a mastery of the game from an intelligence aspect, always seemingly two and three steps ahead of the play. Combbined with his outstanding physical skills, you have a player who will play impactful minutes. Buffalo Bills Jerseys. " Rounding out the top five are defenceman Oliver Kylington of Farjestad in the Swedish Elite League and McDavids Erie teammate Dylan Strome. When it comes to goaltending talent, Button predicts that NHL general managers arent likely to find it in the first round at next years draft in Sunrise, Florida. "There is not a goaltender in this draft who can give a team the assuredness of sound play warranted of a first round selection," explains Button. "Puck possession is a prevalent theme and having players who can excel in this aspect makes goaltenders better. The reverse is not true so unless a goalie has qualities that are obviously outstanding, the first round will continue to shut out goaltenders." But when it comes to skaters, he sees a very deep draft with plenty of intrigue for NHL teams to consider. "Drafts are so often defined by the star quality at the top of the draft but when you look at teams being built for Stanley Cup success - specific elements stand out," Button explained. "Strong two-way centres, puck moving defenceman who will join the attack and offensive wingers. This draft has those types of players available and teams picking throughout the first round and into the second and third rounds will have the opportunity to bolster their teams. "Drew Doughty was the 2nd overall pick, after Steven Stamkos, but Los Angeles also selected Slava Voynov early in the second round. Two important players on two Stanley Cup teams. The draft is the path towards success so a deep draft benefits all teams as they pursue the ultimate goal of winning the Stanley Cup. "(Its) a draft with no certainty as to who will be the first overall selection but a belief the first two players selected will be franchise players. How does it get better than that?"
