Conway, SC (SportsNetwork. .com) - Coastal Carolina could have stewed for the last two weeks over a blocked field goal attempt on the final play of the regular season, which spoiled its perfect record. Instead, the Chanticleers went out and did something about. Seventh-seeded Coastal took its frustration out on Richmond with a 36-15 rout in the second round. Coastal (12-1) will travel to second-seeded North Dakota State for the national quarterfinals next weekend. A year ago, the Chanticleers fell to NDSU, 48-14, in the final eight. The only blemish on Coastals record was the 15-14 loss to Liberty to end the regular season on Nov. 22. The Chanticleers had a 24-yard chip shot blocked to end that game and were forced to share the Big South Conference title with Liberty. But coach Joe Moglias squad, coming off a first-round bye, played with focus in ending Richmonds season one week after the visiting Spiders (9-5) eliminated Morgan State from the playoffs. The Chanticleers rushed for 316 yards to overcome Richmond quarterback Michael Strauss 402 passing yards. Coastal Carolina clung to a 6-0 lead late in the second quarter until they capped an 11-play, 58-yard drive with Alex Ross 13-yard touchdown pass to tight end Craig Weick with 33 seconds left in the first half. Austin Cain ran in the two-point conversion and the Chanticleers had a 14-0 halftime lead. It got much worse for Richmond in the third quarter. Andre Johnson scored on a 9-yard run to give Coastal a 21-0 lead at the 12:13 mark. The Spiders answered with Strauss 76-yard touchdown pass to Brian Brown to pull within 21-7. But Henderson broke off a 50-yard touchdown run on the Chanticleers ensuing drive and Ross scored from 1 yard out just before the end of the quarter to push the lead to 36-8. Henderson finished with 134 yards on 19 carries and Ross was 22-for-41 for 171 yards and a touchdown, adding 52 yards on the ground. Senior linebacker Quinn Backus was dominant as he led the Coastal defense with 10 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, 1.5 tackles for losses, two pass breakups and two quarterback hurries. .Two San Francisco radio stations say they wont play the song during the duration of the World Series.

Nash passed his final test Tuesday when he skated with his teammates before the game that night against the Boston Bruins. Nash has being skating -- mostly on his own -- the past two weeks after his symptoms subsided. Watch the game on TSN, tonight at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. "Im going to go tonight," Nash said after the morning skate at Madison Square Garden. "Last night, I just thought it would be the best thing, moving forward, talking to everybody. Im excited, its kind of controlled emotion. Its been a long six weeks so Im excited to get in there. "I think the first everything is going to take awhile, whether its a hit, a shot or a pass, making different plays. Its a long time off, so its going to take some time." Vigneault plans to use Nash as he normally would before the injury -- his second concussion in eight months -- but he will talk to him throughout the game to see how hes feeling. "He is going to play a regular shift and he is going to play some power play," Vigneault said. "I would like to be able to keep him in that 15--minute range. . He hasnt played for quite some time. Its almost for him like going through training camp again." Nash skated for several consecutive days and then practiced with the team last week, first in a noncontact capacity. He underwent tests Thursday. Nash logged just under six minutes of ice time the night he was hurt in the first period. It was the only game of the three he played this season in which he failed to record a point. He received just more than 15 minutes of ice time in the season opener and just under 18 minutes in the second game -- one day before he was injured. "I think well just guide it as we go along," Nash said. "Im sure (Vigneault) has had a lot of time with players coming back from injuries, so I leave that up to him." J.T. Miller will be a healthy scratch from Tuesday nights lineup. The Rangers had already sent down forward Brandon Mashinter to Hartford of the AHL on Monday. He was cleared to return Sunday and told coach Alain Vigneault the next day he was ready to go. Nash hasnt played in a game since he was injured on a hit from San Joses Brad Stuart on Oct. 8 in New Yorks third game of the season. ' ' '
