Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants reports that the Alex Frolov-Marian Gaborik led Team 1 beat the Artem Anisimov-Brandon Dubinsky led Team 2, 6-4, in the first scrimmage at the Rangers’ training camp.
The Frolov-Derek Stepan-Gaborik line accounted for four goals - a hat trick for Frolov and a goal for Stepan.
Marc Staal had a goal and an assist while Brandon Dubinsky had a goal for the Anisimov/Dubinsky team in the loss.
Apparently, MZA spent much of the first period trying to throw his 5-foot-7 frame around.
Here are the rosters for the second scrimmage:
Team 2: Avery-White-Fedotenko (nice, Avery and Fedotenko on a line together after their Pittsburgh brush-up), Dupont-Boyle-Weise, Chappell-Horak-Bourque; D: Del Zotto-Rozsival, Klassen-Sauer, Maggio; GK: Lundqvist.
Team 3: Prospal-Drury-Callahan, Boogaard-Kennedy-Thomas, Garlock-McNaught; D: Redden-Eminger, Niemi-Semenov, Kundratek; GK Johnson, Parise.
...love hearing the Frolov-Stepan-Gaborik line went off today. Getting closer to seeing Stepan in the opening night lineup.
...nice to see MZA trying to show he can withstand the physical NHL, but I'd rather see him showcasing his offensive talent than his physicality.
