Injured forward Rick Nash was back on the ice this morning at Rangers practice, but afterwards he wasn’t sharing any specifics about his ailment.

“I feel good,” Nash said, per NHL.com. “It’s getting better … it’s a positive day, for sure … I don’t know about [playing] tonight, but definitely a good day.”

Nash has missed the last three games with what, according to ESPN, is “believed to be a concussion.”

So, is it a concussion?

“Um, I’m not a doctor, so it’s tough for me to analyze that,” Nash said, per ESPN’s Katie Strang.

In other possible concussion news, Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh wasn’t skating this morning.
