Well they didn’t win, but it was a good tournament for the Rangers and a great look at a lot of the Rangers prospects. JT Miller got better and better. Carl Hagelin and Ryan Bourque were great throughout. Christian Thomas showed flashes of the kind of scorer he can be at the next level, but also showed off some nice playmaking moves. Audy-M was a nice surprise up front.
First Period: Tim Erixon and Randy McNaught scored for the Rangers. St. Louis tied it up at 2.
2-2 after one.
Second Period: Carl Hagelin (PP) and Ryan Bourque (SH) scored to give the Rangers a 4-2 lead.
Third Period: Jonathan Audy-M, or maybe Carl Hagelin, scored to make it 5-2.
Well it was damn nice to have players in a Rangers jersey playing hockey. The first thing is to remember that this is one game and it’s the first game in a long time for a lot of the players. JT Miller was okay, but I give him the benefit of the doubt because he is going through that crazy post draft time right now. Ryan Bourque, Carl Hagelin and Christian Thomas were great all night. Tim Erixon looks like he can join the Rangers and was arguably the best player on the ice. Blake Parlett was also solid and had three assists.
