Nash skates again, Moore rejoins practice
By Katie Strang
GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Rick Nash skated for the third straight day, though he has yet to join the New York Rangers for a full practice.
The injured winger has been out since sustaining a head injury on a hit from San Jose Sharks defenseman Brad Stuart in a 9-2 loss on Oct. 8.
There is still no timetable for his return.

Dominic Moore also appears to be making some positive progress on the injured front. The veteran center, who has been sidelined with an oblique strain, practiced with the team Monday at the Rangers’ training center in Westchester.
Coach Alain Vigneault indicated that Moore, one of the team’s key penalty-killers, will likely be available to play Saturday when the team is in Montreal to play the Canadiens.

Recently-retired goaltender Martin Biron will be joining MSG Network as a studio analyst, the network and team announced Monday morning.
Biron, who hung up the skates last month after being waived by the Rangers, will be in studio for select games this season. He will make his MSG debut Tuesday during the pregame, postgame and intermission segments of the network’s broadcast of the Rangers-Devils game.
Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist said the affable Biron was a “good pick-up” for the network.
“He is very confident and comfortable in front of the camera,” Lundqvist said.
