Rangers_Brandon_Mashinter_2013The Rangers sent seldom-used depth forward Brandon Mashinter back to the Hartford Wolf Pack on Monday morning, likely meaning Rick Nash is prepared to play Tuesday night against the Boston Bruins.

The Rangers pointed out Mashinter’s assignment has nothing to do with Nash, so it is possible he could remain out of the lineup until the upcoming road trip, but we will have to wait and see.
