Rick Nash scores game-winner while falling down

Rick Nash scored the game-winning goal for the Rangers on Friday, and it was quite a goal.

Rick Nash has had his share of struggles for the New York Rangers this season, especially lately with just three goals in his past 13 games entering play on Friday.

But man did he come up big when the Rangers needed him most against the Stars when he scored the game-winner late in the third period, doing so in pretty spectacular fashion.

While falling on his butt.

Nash is capable of scoring some pretty incredible goals, and that's another one to add to the list.

The goal was his 10th of the season and helped the Rangers keep pace with the other teams in the Metropolitan Division playoff race.
