ZUG, Switzerland -- Artem Anisimov
's shot went off the end boards and bounced right in front of the goal where Ruslan Fedotenko
banged it in with 1:12 left to cut the EV Zug lead to 5-4. That's where it stands heading into the third period.
The Rangers applied pressure in the final minute, but they couldn't get the equalizer before time expired.
Rangers coach John Tortorella shuffled his lines in the second period, putting Brandon Dubinsky
with Brad Richards
and Marian Gaborik
. He's still looking for the correct left wing to play with the two high-paid superstars.
Fedotenko, who played with Gaborik and Richards in the first period, dropped into Dubinsky's spot on the second line with Anisimov and captain Ryan Callahan
, who started the game as the fourth-line left wing, moved to center and played between Mike Rupp
and Brandon Prust
, Derek Stepan
and Mats Zuccarello
made up the other line.
