Is Rick Nash A Playoff Bust?

Published April 24, 2018 at 11:48

The Boston Bruins have found themselves in a tight spot. 

After winning the first two games of their series against the Toronto Maple Leafs by a combined score of 12-4, the B's have let the Leafs climb back into the series. 

The Leafs have won two straight games and three of the last four as the teams head into Game 7 of their first round playoff matchup. 

All this has happened while the Bruins big trade deadline acquisition has been pretty quiet on the stat sheet.

Forward Rick Nash has one goal in six games on 22 shots, currently shooting at 4.5% in the playoffs, far from David Pastrnak's four goals on 24 shots. 

Should anybody really be shocked though? 

Nash has 16 career playoff goals in 83 playoff games on 283 shots for a 5.7 shooting percentage.

The Bruins gave up Ryan Spooner, Matt Beleskey, Ryan Lindgren their 2018 first round pick and their seventh round pick for Nash, was it worth it?

Hopefully Nash becomes the Game 7 playoff hero.
