Zug scores two more, leads 7-4 in third
ZUG, Switzerland --Esa Pirnes scored his second goal of the night, this time on a partial breakaway, to give EV Zug a 6-4 lead just 2:40 into the third period.

Less than a minute and a half later, Damien Brunner, who leads the Swiss league in scoring, cashed in off a feed from Fabian Sutter to give Zug a three-goal lead for the first time in the game.

What made the Brunner goal worse was that Steve Eminger was all turned around and Michael Del Zotto was late coming back to help.

Rangers coach John Tortorella was seen talking to Del Zotto, his hands on the youngster's shoulders, shortly after Brunner and EV Zug were finished celebrating.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.

— Martin St. Louis after announcing his retirement from the NHL on Thursday
