In the Devils second preseason game of the season, and the first one that involves New Jersey's top line of Zach Parise, Travis Zajac, and Ilya Kovalchuk, along with three-time Stanley Cup Winner Martin Brodeur at Madison Square Garden, they trail the Rangers 3-2 after two periods.

Zajac scored in the first period and Kovalchuk netted a goal in the second stanza as the top line accounted for both New Jersey goals.

Brodeur made the start for Jersey's Team, allowing goals to Marian Gaborik, Anthony Frolov and Brian Boyle.
