After a slow first period, the Rangers found their game, dominating the rest of the way in notching a 4-1 win over HC Slovan on Sunday. New York got goals by Mats Zuccarello, Brian Boyle, Artem Anisimov in the second and Ryan McDonagh in the third.
A couple of quick things:
- the Ranger really wanted to get Gabby a goal in his home country, and while he was unsuccessful, he did notch an assist...

AROUND THE WEB
Mats Zuccarrelo started a string of four unanswered goals and the New York Rangers rallied for a 4-1 victory over Slovan Bratislava on Sunday for their third straight preseason win in Europe.
Slovan took a 1-0 lead on Ivan Svarny's slap shot during a first-period power play, but Zuccarrelo tied it during a 5-3 advantage in the second and goals from Brian Boyle and Artem Anisimov...
Over the summer there was much speculation concerning the
subject of who would be the left wing to pair with Brad Richards and Marian
Gaborik on the top line for the New York Rangers. My position throughout was that Wojtek Wolski
would get the first chance to prove he could utilize his talent playing with
those two elite players. Reports from
camp have said there is...

New York Rangers left wing Wojtek Wolski is listed as day-to-day with a groin injury.
Wolski is entering his first full season with the Rangers. He has been penciled in to skate on the team's top line with Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik.
A first-round pick of the Colorado Avalanche in 2004, Wolski has a combined 12 goals and 23 assists in 73 games with Phoenix and New York last season.
The New York Rangers have to trim their roster down to 24 players by Wednesday, and there's going to be a significant amount of drama in Coach John Tortorella's decision.
When Sean Avery's involved, when isn't there drama? From Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News:
The team must cut down to 24 players by Wednesday, and John Tortorella said in a conference call from...
1) The Rangers were totally outplayed by an adrenalized Slovakian team until midway in the second period when the Rangers received a 5 on 3 for a full two minutes. The Rangers scored twice on beautiful passing and from then on dominated the game. The capacity crowd of 10,000 was extremely reserved; hand clapping and some chanting was the measure of their enthusiasm. There...
This is one you have to chalk up to the Rangers hectic travel schedule. Clearly the team was gassed to start the game, as they were unable to generate any sort of foot speed, and looked lethargic out there to a man. As the game wore on, the Rangers seemed to get their energy levels up to respectable levels, and were able to pull of a win, albeit an unimpressive win considering...
(Editor’s note: Is it really 20 years since this? October 4, 1991: Mark Messier, traded to NY Rangers by Edmonton with future considerations (Jeff Beukeboom for David Shaw, November 12, 1991) for Bernie Nicholls, Steven Rice and Louie DeBrusk and a big, giant bag of cash, October 4, 1991.)
The Rangers wrapped up their 2011 preseason campaign with an ugly 8-4...

It’s Sunday, so it’s time for today’s link dump.
Steve Zipay at Newsday thinks that the Rangers youth movement is on hold because the Rangers cut Carl Hagelin and Ryan Bourque yesterday. I am inclined to disagree here. There is a ton of youth on the team already, and you don’t just put youth on the team just to do it. The Rangers are adding Mats Zuccarello full time...
