Red Wings 3, Rangers 1
Sep. 13, 1999
DETROIT (AP) _ Defenseman Steve Duchesne had a goal and an assist in his debut with the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night, keying a 3-1 NHL exhibition victory over the New York Rangers.
Duchesne, signed as a free agent in the offseason, broke a 1-1 tie with a power-play goal at 3:27 of the second period. Duchesne took a feed from center Igor Larionov and drove the puck past Rangers goalie Kirk McLean.
Duchesne then set up a goal by Vyacheslav Kozlov with a little more than three minutes to play for the final margin.
New York's score came at 3:54 of the first when Theo Fleury took a pass from fellow Rangers newcomer Valeri Kamensky and fired the puck past Manny Legace. Fleury and Kamensky were among several free agents signed by the Rangers over the summer.
Detroit countered four minutes later, tying the score at 1 on Mathieu Dandenault's goal.
Detroit outshot New York 33-15, with the Rangers getting just one shot in the final period.
