Video: Rick Nash notches career goal 300

Mar 26, 2013, 9:13 PM EDT

Most of the numbers haven’t been very positive for the New York Rangers lately. They’ve gone 3-5-1 in their last nine games. Expensive center Brad Richards began Tuesday night centering the team’s third line. The Rangers are clinging to a one-point lead for the eighth spot in the East.

Rick Nash‘s numbers have been pretty nice, though. He scored his 11th goal of the season, which happened to push his career total to 300 (in 702 games played):

One other potentially positive number: if the Rangers hold on to win on Tuesday, John Tortorella will have 400 wins as an NHL head coach.

The Philadelphia Flyers celebrated what might have been the most impressive number of the night, however, as Kimmo Timonen played in the 1,000th regular season game of his NHL career.

Update: the Bergen Record’s Andrew Gross points out some other milestones:

    Michael Dive Zotto changed the flow of the game by falling and spinning around when gagne barley touched him. Wayne simmonds turned it back by scoring after returning from that puck in the face. Fun game.

    Bryz and Flyers are chokers! Having a McDonald’s moment. “I’m lovin it”

      Well if they can get better at choking it would lead to a great draft pick as they are currently the 5th worse team in the league.Dropping three more places would ensure them a top three pick.

      Pick the Rags? He waived his no trade clause to get out of a bad situation. Apparently the Rangers made the best offer. Not like he said I’m heading to New York whether you like it or not.
