ZUG, Switzerland -- Mike Rupp
and Artem Anisimov
scored goals 13 seconds apart to send the Rangers and EV Zug into the dressing rooms tied at 3-3.
Rupp scored at 18:47 off a deflection of Michael Del Zotto
's point shot. Anisimov scored an unassisted goal at 19 minutes off a great individual effort.
Anisimov lost the puck at his feet during a center drive, but he used his strength to find it between two Zug players and get a good shot off on Zug goalie Jussi Markkanen
to tie the game at 3-3.
The Rangers were flat out bad in the first 10 minutes of the game, but they picked it up. Save for a great move by former NHLer Josh Holden
to undress Brad Richards
and score a shorthanded goal, the final 10 minutes was all Rangers.
