Oscar Lindberg notched a hat trick this afternoon, increasing his goal total to four as the Rangers fell to the Sabres in overtime by a score of 6-5. Danny Kristo added a goal and two assists as well, increasing his line to 1-3-4 in two games. The 5-3-8 line between Kristo and Lindberg is more goals and points than everyone else on the baby Blueshirts roster combined.
Josh Graves scored the fifth and final goal for the Rangers. You can see the full game recap here.

The Rangers prospects need more seasoning
Oscar Lindberg and Danny Kristo are clearly ready for more demanding challenges. With four goals in two games, Lindberg has continued his offensive production from Sweden and at this stage is well beyond the average prospect considering his experience in the SEL. Kristo too – being older, physically ready and with a senior world championship...
Per Steve Zipay, the forward lines for the Traverse City tournament are below:
Danny Kristo, Oscar Lindberg, Jesper Fast
Kyle Jean, Michael St. Croix, Thomas Spelling
Josh Nicholls, Andrew Yogan, Anthony Duclair
Klarc Wilson, Michael Kantor, Paxton Leroux

A goaltender actually worth his salary: The King
Corey Crawford got $6m per year long term? I think it’s clear at this stage that Henrik Lundqvist is going to get a serious pay rise. Some goaltenders are products of great teams (Crawford, a good but not great goalie may be exhibit A here) and some are great goaltenders who make teams better – a la Lundqvist. Unless he signs a...
By Jim Reilly Eklundâs post speculating that the new Rangerâs coach Alain Vigneault is âquietly pushing for a big trade to change the Rangers cultureâ leaves me a bit skeptical. After all, this is a team that has played 32 playoff games the last two seasons and has won three Game Sevens. I donât believe that Alain Vigneault was brought into the organization...
