Rangers grab 1-0 lead
PRAGUE -- Artem Anisimov got the Rangers on the board with 14:15 to play in the second period, giving them a 1-0 lead over Sparta Prague.

Anisimov scored from the slot with a backhander off a feed from Tim Erixon. Brandon Dubinsky started the play with a sharp diagonal pass from the right circle down to the goal line for Erixon.

Sparta's defense shifted and goalie Tomas Popperle went to the near post. Erixon recognized and found Anisimov, who settled puck and shot it into the open net.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
