Pre-Season Game 6: Devils & Rangers, 2-2 Tie
    The New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers skated to a 2-2 tie on Friday, September 27, 2002 in East Rutherford.
    Bobby Holik returned to Continental Airlines Arena for the first time since signing with the Rangers on July 1.   Even though he has not yet played in a single regular season game for the Rangers, he was wearing an "A".   He was booed loudly, when he was announced in the starting lineup and every time he touched the puck.
    Just 3:09 into the first period, Mike Danton and Matthew Barnaby dropped the gloves.   The officials let the two battle it out for quite some time before breaking it up.   Barnaby has a slight height/weight advantage, though Danton held his own and most would agree was victorious.
    Jim McKenzie got his first goal of the pre-season at 8:45 of the first period to give the Devils a 1-0 lead.   McKenzie's goal was assisted by defensemen Scott Niedermayer and Scott Stevens.
    Matthew Barnaby tied the game with an unassisted power-play goal at 11:18.   Brodeur attempted to clear the puck, but it was intercepted by Barnaby and shot easily into the open net.
    Scott Niedermayer beat Mike Richter on the power-play at 17:44 of the first to give the Devils a 2-1 lead.   Jamie Langenbrunner and Sergei Brylin assisted on the goal.   This was the first pre-season game for Brylin, who had be out, re-habbing his knee.
    The first period ended with the Devils leading the Rangers, 2-1.   The Rangers outshot the Devils 8-5 in the period.
    There was no scoring in the second period.   New Jersey outshot New York 12-5 in the period.
    Jamie Lundmark tied the game by pushing the puck past Brodeur from the rebound of a Bobby Holik shot.   Lundmark's goal came with just 1:04 left in regulation time.
    The third period ended with the game tied, 2-2.   The Devils outshot the Rangers 10-7 in the period.
    The overtime period ended without any scoring - the game ended in a 2-2 tie.   The Devils outshot the Rangers 30-21 in the game.
    The Devils were weak on the power-play, only converting on 1 of 7 chances.   The Rangers were 1 for 3 with the man-advantage.
    Mike Danton had a productive night - in addition to the fight with Barnaby he also drew two penalties, Barnaby (unsportsmanlike conduct) and Richter (slashing).
    Even though there was no broadcast (television, radio, or internet) of the game, there were television timeouts, as there would be had there been a broadcast.
    Scott Niedermayer and Brian Rafalski wore "A"s for the Devils.
    The three stars of the game were: (1) Scott Niedermayer, (2) Martin Brodeur, (3) Jamie Lundmark.
    Former Devils Assistant Coach, Slava Fetisov, was at the arena for the game.
    Devils scratches: Patrik Elias, Joe Nieuwendyk, Brian Gionta, Ken Daneyko, and Tommy Albelin.
    The announced attendance for the game was 10,024.
    The parking fee at Continental Airlines Arena is now $10.00, a 25% increase from the $8.00 fee last year.
