STAT OF THE GAME
His team gave him a big lead, but Henrik Lundqvist was able to quietly make 35 saves in his second preseason start and showed how effective he can be when given the rest he'll enjoy more this year

Even though Detroit didn't dress many of its regulars, the Rangers can still take a lot of good things from this game -- in particular the inspired play of their own roster hopefuls. Mike Sauer, Derek Stepan, Ruslan Fedotenko and others played a very big role in this win.
