The Lightning fell to 0-3 at the Traverse City tournament this afternoon, dropping the matinee to the Rangers prospects 5-3.
The club fell behind 3-0 in the opening frame before Mitch Fadden scored an unassisted goal late in the second period, but the Rangers responded with two goals early in the Third Period to put the game out of reach for good. Kyle DeCoste scored an unassisted goal and captain Chris Lawrence added a late tally in garbage time from Luciano Aquino to make the final score slightly more respectable.
