Special teams lead Rangers over Blues in Traverse City
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- Carl Hagelin scored a power-play goal and Ryan Bourque connected shorthanded in a span of 1:10 midway through the second period to help lead the New York Rangers to a 5-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues at Center ICE Arena on Saturday in the Traverse City prospects tournament.

Rangers starting goalie Jason Missiaen turned aside 18 of 20 shots to earn the victory between the pipes.

Tim Erixon (1 goal, 1 assist) scored a power-play goal and Randy McNaught connected at even-strength when the Rangers opened a 2-0 edge. The Blues tied the contest on goals by Phillip McRae and Anthony Nigro (shorthanded).

Jonathan Audy-Marchessault also scored a power-play goal for the Rangers, who finished 3-for-11 with the man advantage. Blues goalie Jake Allen took the loss with 31 saves. St. Louis was whistled for 13 penalties totaling 29 minutes.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
