OPPONENT: EV Zug NOTABLE NHLers: Jussi Markkanen (former Ranger), Glen Metropolit. RANGERS LINEUP: Brian Boyle-Brad Richards-Marian Gaborik Brandon Dubinsky-Artem Anisimov-Ryan Callahan Ruslan Fedotenko-Erik Christensen-Brandon Prust Mike Rupp-Derek Stepan-Mats Zuccarello Ryan McDonagh-Dan Girardi Michael Del Zotto-Steve Eminger Brendan Bell-Stu Bickel Martin Biron Scott Stajcer STATE OF THE BLUESHIRTS: The Rangers are 4-1-1 this preseason, but have not looked overly impressive while amassing that impressive record.  They were sloppy against Slovan, and have taken entirely too many penalties against teams that are supposed to be inferior opponents.  They would not be 4-1-1 if they played this way against NHL opponents.  With the roster essentially set, it’s time to get their act together and finish the preseason strong. CRAZY THOUGHT: Bickel scores a goal. OPPONENT’S BLOG: N/A PREDICTION: Rangers 4, Zug 1. The game is on at 2pm on MSG.  If there’s a live stream, I’ll post it here.
