Teams trade goals, Rangers trail Zug 3-1
ZUG, Switzerland -- The Rangers have picked up their speed since the 10-minute mark of the first period and it paid off as Brandon Dubinsky set up Ryan Callahan with a goal from the slot off the rush at 15:40 to slice EV Zug's lead to 2-1.

Dubinsky used his speed down the left-wing boards to get room and find a streaking Callahan in front. Callahan's initial attempt was stopped by Zug goalie Jussi Markkanen, but Callahan tapped the rebound in before skating around the goal.

However, nine seconds into a power play, the Rangers coughed up the puck and former NHL player Josh Holden undressed Brad Richards before firing the puck over Martin Biron's right shoulder to give Zug a 3-1 lead with 3:36 to play in the first period.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
