The Rangers evened their record in the Traverse City tournament with a 7-4 win over the Stars. Kaapo Kakko missed his second straight game due to illness, but as you will see in the tweet below, the hope is that he will play Monday against Minnesota. The offense was led by Adam Fox, Kark Henriksson, Ryan Dmowski (two late goals to seal the win), Matthew Robertson (goal and an assist) and Vitali Kravtsov while Adam Huska stopped 24 shots to notch the victory. Here is the link to the full boxscore: http://pointstreak.com/prostats/boxscore.html?gameid=3469869. New York takes on Minnesota on Monday.

If Fox was good Friday, he was sublime Saturday. A pair of goals and three assists to lead to New York to the win. It's clear that his offensive skills weren't exaggerated. The key will be how he plays in his own zone. But he has done little to hurt his chances heading into training camp.

Henriksson notched his first as a Ranger with a beautiful deflection on Fox's shot:

Yegor Rykov got his first as a Ranger, picking up a rebound on the power play and blasting it home:

Kravtsov was all over the place, tallying three assists in the win. Two of the three helpers were of the primary nature. Kravtsov was noticeable every shift he was on the ice, rebounding from a so-so game Friday.
