Mantha, Rasmussen help Red Wings beat Blues
CALUMET, Mich. (AP) — Anthony Mantha and Michael Rasmussen each scored twice to help the Detroit Red Wings beat the Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues 4-1 on Thursday night in a Kraft Hockeyville preseason game.
Mantha opened the scoring in a power play with 4:32 left in the first period and added the winner 1:05 into the second period. Rasmussen scored both of his goals nearly two minutes apart later in the second.
Ryan O’Reilly tied it at 1 for St. Louis 43 seconds into the second period.
Kraft Hockeyville is a yearly event in which the NHL and Kraft bring an exhibition game to a non-NHL city in Canada and the United States. Earlier, Florida played Montreal in Renous, New Brunswick. The cities that host the games also receive funding designed to be used to improve and modernize rinks.
Prior to the game, Philadelphia general manager Chuck Fletcher said center Nolan Patrick has been diagnosed with a migraine disorder, and will not travel with the team to Europe, where they will play Swiss National League team Lausanne on Monday night in the preseason finale, before beginning the regular season Oct. 4 in Prague against the Chicago Blackhawks.
