Anthony Beauvillier scored the game-winner, but Jaroslav Halak was the story in the Islanders 2-1 win over the New York Rangers in Bridgeport.
Halak stopped 34-of-35 shots in the win, playing his first full game of the preseason. It was his first win of the exhibition schedule and helped the Islanders improve to 3-0-2 in preseason play.
"Jaro was great," Head Coach Doug Weight said. "He made the big saves, but you don't just look at the score, but his body language, energetic, athletic, aggressive. He was good."
