TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- Jesper Fast and Andrew Yogan each scored a pair of goals and Danny Kristo had a goal and an assist when the New York Rangers beat the Minnesota Wild 5-2 in the seventh-place game of the Traverse City Tournament on Monday at Center Ice Arena.

Forwards Carter Sandlak and Miles Koules, both of whom are at camp on tryouts, scored first-period goals in the opening 5:25 to give Minnesota a 2-0 lead before the Rangers scored five unanswered goals. Fast, a 2010 sixth-round pick (No. 157), converted back-to-back feeds from Oscar Lindberg (2010, No. 57) in a span of 14 seconds to pull the Rangers into a 2-2 tie, before Kristo (2008, No. 56) gave the Blueshirts their first lead at 16:36 of the second.

Yogan (2010, No. 100) closed out the scoring in the third with two goals, including an empty-netter with 46 seconds remaining in regulation.

Rangers goalie Jeff Malcolm, another player in camp on a tryout, made 15 saves to earn his first victory of the tournament in two starts.
