Box Score



Adam’s Thoughts:

  • The defense, especially Marc Staal and John Moore, were shooting and jumping into the play whenever they had the chance.
  • Moore looks a lot more confident with the puck and even though it’s one preseason game, he looks poised to take on a bigger role with the Rangers.
  • Staal looked good and that is probably the best thing you can take out of the game.
  • Rick Nash, Brad Richards and Chris Kreider all had their moments as did Danny Kristo who had some nice chances.
