TAMPA — For the past month and a half, Riley Nash has watched the Lightning from afar. The veteran forward’s patience, however, paid off as he cracked the lineup for the first time this postseason in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final against the Rangers. Now with...
TAMPA — For the first time since Round 1, the Lightning are using a traditional lineup (12 forwards and six defensemen) for today’s Game 3 against the Rangers, who lead the series 2-0. With the new look, Riley Nash gets his first action of the postseason. Brandon Hagel, battling through an undisclosed injury, also made the lineup. Defenseman Cal Foote was listed as a healthy scratch for the extra forward (missing his first game of the playoffs).
Riley Nash will enter the lineup Sunday against the Rangers, per Dan Rosen of NHL.com. Nash will likely join Tampa's fourth line alongside Patrick Maroon and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare. The 33-year-old forward has yet to appear in a postseason game after posting four assists and no goals in 49 regular-season contests.

Nash was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Saturday.

Nash has gone scoreless through 10 appearances with Tampa Bay this season.
The Tampa Bay Lightning have brought back forward Riley Nash from the Arizona Coyotes via trade in exchange for future considerations, the team announced Monday.

BRANDON — After making two key additions to their forward group in the days leading up to Monday’s 3 p.m. trade deadline, the Lightning made an 11th-hour deal to reacquire veteran center Riley Nash. The Lightning got Nash, 32, from the Arizona Coyotes for future considerations. Because he...
Nash was placed on waivers Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Nash has just four assists in 48 combined games with Arizona, Tampa Bay and Winnipeg this season. The veteran forward could be claimed off waivers for the third time this season just before Monday's trade deadline.
Nash has played in just three of the Coyotes' last eight games. The return of Barrett Hayton on Feb. 18 after a nearly six-week absence has cut into Nash's playing time. It doesn't help that Nash is mired in a nine-game point drought. He could see more time if the Coyotes ship out some forwards ahead of the March 21 trade deadline, though it's also possible he could be one of the players on the move. He's logged just two assists with 34 shots on net, 36 hits and a minus-7 rating in 42 games between the Coyotes, Lightning and Jets this season.
Nash chipped in an assist in a 7-3 loss to the Rangers on Saturday. Nash helped out on Andrew Ladd's first period goal, giving Arizona a soon-to-diminish lead in this one. The 32-year-old has more points with 2 in eight games than he had in 25 games this season in Winnipeg and Tampa Bay.
The Tampa Bay Lightning tried to slip Riley Nash through waivers earlier this week.

The arrival of Riley Nash comes at a time when the Arizona Coyotes are in need of healthy centers, with Jay Beagle out for the foreseeable future after core muscle surgery and Friday’s news that Barrett Hayton has a hand injury that could cost him some time. Nash took part in his first Coyotes...
Nash logged an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Predators. Nash's first game as a Coyote saw him help out on a Lawson Crouse tally in the third period. The 32-year-old Nash went without a point in 25 contests between the Jets and the Lightning before breaking through his third team this season. The defensive center has added 18 shots on net, 21 hits, six PIM and a minus-1 rating. While he'll likely play in a bottom-six role for the Coyotes, Nash should be a fairly regular presence in the lineup.
The Tampa Bay Lightning have lost Riley Nash on waivers to the Arizona Coyotes. This comes nearly a month after the Lightning claimed Nash on waivers from the Winnipeg Jets. Nash’s waivers claim by the Lightning in early December was somewhat of a surprise, but this certainly was not as the veteran forward needed to be placed on waivers yesterday to free up roster space for Nikita Kucherov’s return tonight.
The Arizona Coyotes have claimed forward Riley Nash off waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team announced on Thursday.
