Tedenby, Gelinas net goals for Devils in 2-1 preseason win over Rangers

NEWARK, N.J. - Mattias Tedenby scored in the first period, and Eric Gelinas added a goal in the third to lead the New Jersey Devils to a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Monday night in the preseason opener for both teams.

Tedenby, fighting for a spot on the roster, scored 10:20 into the game off a fine pass from Rostislav Olesz. Gelinas fired in a hard slap shot 31 seconds into the third to make it 2-0.

New York's Dominic Moore, making a return to hockey after taking a year off, scored on a backhander with 15:01 left.

Cory Schneider made his Devils debut and stopped all 22 shots he faced while playing the first two periods.

Henrik Lundqvist allowed one goal and made 15 saves in 30 minutes of action for the Rangers.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
