Peter Laviolette was obviously and justifiably displeased with his team’s play, and had some choice words for his club during the first intermission.  After the Flyers were outshot in the first, 8-5, Philly thoroughly dominated the rest of the game, recording a 31-16 sho...

Pregame: Rangers Return Home to Face Flyers

There's no better way to celebrate a victory against a top opponent than playing the very next day against yet another top opponent.
