Good news on the D front. Michael Sauer, who has been kept from scrimmaging by left knee tendinitis, scored in his return as the Blue Team defeated Green 2-1. Sauer scored from the slot on a rebound of Carl Hagelin's shot.
Captain Ryan Callahan scored the other goal early in the second half of the scrimmage off a give and go with Brandon Dubinsky. With the goaltender pulled, Artem Anisimov scored for Green with less than a minute to go.
Martin Biron was in goal for Green. Scott Stajcer and Cam Talbot split time for Blue.
Some of the lines and d-pairs:
Green: Rupp-Anisimov-Zuccarello; (somehow, that trio doesn't quite fit); Avery (who played at full tilt like a man fighting for a job that he appears to be on the verge of losing)-Mitchell-Miller; Girardi-Valentenko; Kundratek-Noreau
Blue: Dubinsky-Stepan-Callahan; Hagelin-Christensen-Thomas; Sauer-Bell; McDonagh-McIlrath
