Rangers hang on to 2-0 lead after 40 minutes
PRAGUE -- The Rangers lead remains 2-0 heading into the third period. Anisimov and Fedotenko had the goals in the second and Biron continues to play a sharp game, leading to his shutout through two periods.

New York's second power play unit worked on Fedotenko's goal and has actually been quite impressive on both of its chances. The first unit (Brad Richards, Marian Gaborik, Wojtek Wolski, Ryan Callahan and Brandon Dubinsky) has struggled to generate much.

However, the Rangers for the most part dominated the second period after what can only be considered a sub-par first period for them.

The third period is set to begin soon.

Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
