STAT OF THE GAME
The Rangers came back from a one-goal deficits twice during the third period before winning. In all of last season, the Rangers won only one game that they had trailed at any point after two periods (Florida, April 3). Coincidentally, Marc Staal got the tying goal in that one, too.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

These games help develop team confidence going into the new season. The Blueshirts are using preseason games to send a message about what 2010-11 might mean for them..
