Rangers take out Isles 2-1 in preseason finale

NEW YORK -- Valeri Kamensky scored a power-play goal with 16:35 remaining in the third period and the Rangers completed their preseason with a 2-1 victory Sunday over the Islanders.

Power plays accounted for all the scoring.

The Rangers took a 1-0 lead at 8:01 of the first period on a goal by Jan Hlavac. Kenny Jonsson tied the score for the Islanders at 9:31.

Kirk McLean turned aside 39 of 40 shots by the Islanders. John Vanbiesbrouck had 24 saves for the Islanders.

BLUES 1, THRASHERS 1: Damian Rhodes, looking fully recovered from an ankle injury that sidelined him most of last season, had 27 saves for host Atlanta.

Bryan Adams' power-play goal 8:34 into the game, off assists from Herbert Vasiljevs and Frantisek Kaberle, gave the Thrashers an early lead.

St. Louis' Scott Young converted a pass from Jochen Hecht, tying the score with 6:10 left in the second period.

Blues goalie Brent Johnson stopped 24 shots.

WILD 1, BLACKHAWKS 1: Manny Fernandez made 30 saves for expansion Minnesota against visiting Chicago.

Minnesota's Pavel Patera opened the scoring in the first period, and defenseman Boris Mironov tied it with a power-play goal in the second. Jocelyn Thibault had 20 saves for Chicago.

SENATORS: Andreas Dackell signed a two-year, $1.9-million contract, three days after saying he wasn't sure he wanted to continue playing for the team.

The Swedish right wing lashed out at team management Thursday after the Senators rescinded a one-year, $880,000 offer.

Dackell had 10 goals and 25 assists last season, and has 52 goals and 97 assists in 320 games.
