The New York Rangers finished the Traverse City Tournament with a 1-3 record after a disappointing 4-1 loss to the Dallas Stars Tuesday afternoon.
The Rangers lone goal, scored by Malte Stromwall with just over seven minutes to play in the first period, was assisted by Ryan Gropp and Lias Andersson. This was Andersson’s only point of the tournament as he played in his final game before heading to Rangers training camp along with several prospects.
New York was helpless to stop Dallas forward Denis Gurianov, who picked up a hat-trick after tying the score in the second period and breaking things open with back-to-back goals in the third, giving the Stars a 3-1 lead. Nick Caamano made it 4-1 Dallas with less than 30 seconds remaining.
Outside of their opening game against Chicago, the Rangers struggled to score goals. They finished the tournament only scoring five—three were against Chicago.
Goaltender Alexandar Georgiev made 23 saves on 26 shots and wound up 0-2 in the tournament.
Now, the organization will focus on training camp and preseason. Though the training camp list was not released yet it is expected that Lias Andersson, Filip Chytil (injured), Ryan Gropp, Ty Ronning will be invited among the prospect.
