Rangers get one back, close second down 5-4
ZUG, Switzerland -- Artem Anisimov's shot went off the end boards and bounced right in front of the goal where Ruslan Fedotenko banged it in with 1:12 left to cut the EV Zug lead to 5-4. That's where it stands heading into the third period.

The Rangers applied pressure in the final minute, but they couldn't get the equalizer before time expired.

Rangers coach John Tortorella shuffled his lines in the second period, putting Brandon Dubinsky with Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik. He's still looking for the correct left wing to play with the two high-paid superstars.

Fedotenko, who played with Gaborik and Richards in the first period, dropped into Dubinsky's spot on the second line with Anisimov and captain Ryan Callahan.

Brian Boyle, who started the game as the fourth-line left wing, moved to center and played between Mike Rupp and Brandon Prust.

Erik Christensen, Derek Stepan and Mats Zuccarello made up the other line.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
