Video: Slumping Rick Nash booed by Rangers fans

May 7, 2014, 10:45 PM EDT

As the Rangers’ situation becomes more dire and Rick Nash‘s goal scoring drought lengthens, the attention it’s getting is intensifying.

Nash hasn’t found the back of the net in 11 playoff games this year and has scored just two goals in 27 career postseason games. Only one of those markers have come with the New York Rangers.

For a guy that typically gets at least 30 goals per season — he finished with 26 in 2013-14, but was limited to 65 contests — that’s a pretty glaring figure. To go any further into it would risk being repetitive after we discussed this topic yesterday, but his problems were taken to another level tonight when fans at Madison Square Garden decided to boo him when he had the puck:

“I understand it. It’s tough,” Nash said of being booed, per Newsday’s Steve Zipay.

The silver lining for Nash is the Rangers aren’t eliminated yet. He still has one more chance to change the narrative.
