Usually when the league's worst team comes to town, the game carries little significance.

But that's far from the case tonight, when the Blue Jackets visit the Garden to take on the Eastern Conference-leading Rangers and Columbus' star winger Rick Nash gets a chance to showcase his considerable skills.

The Rangers are rumored to be interested in Nash, the 6-foot-4 power winger who has scored 18 goals in 57 games this season and has scored at least 30 goals in five of the past six seasons.

One of the players prominently rumored to be headed to Columbus in a deal for Nash is Brandon Dubinsky. The 25-year-old forward has struggled this season, scoring six goals in 53 games, but made it known after yesterday's practice he hopes to be a Blueshirt for a long time to come.
