New York Rangers
A lone female New York Rangers fan declared the obvious in a near-silent Well Fargo Center, at least before the jeers that followed as regulation ticked down.
"You can't beat us," she screamed, a refrain carried over from a game at Madison Square Garden earlier in the week.
No, the Philadelphia Flyers can't. Saturday's 5-2 loss sealed by, among other things, Rangers forward Ryan Callahan's second career hat trick dropped the Flyers to 0-5 this season against their Atlantic Division rivals. The most recent setback had veteran Philly defenseman Kimmo Timonen, who is normally as calm as they come, questioning more than just a mental block against the Rangers.
"To be honest, I think we have half the guys going, half the guys not," Timonen said.
That's a troubling thought, especially going up against a team that beat you in the most hyped game so far this season: the Winter Classic across the street at Citizen's Bank Park on Jan. 2.
BEST OF MAXIM
Ryan Callahan scored three goals, helping the New York Rangers continue their dominance over Philadelphia with a 5-2 victory on Saturday.
Marian Gaborik and Artem Anisimov also had goals for the Eastern Conference-leading Rangers, who've won seven straight against the Flyers.
It was a rare display on special teams that catapulted the Rangers to their second victory over Philadelphia...
As we've discussed here on the blog in the past, the Rangers' dominance of the Atlantic Division this season has been key to their push to the top of the standings in the Eastern Conference. In particular, though, the Blueshirts have been stellar against their biggest rivals in the Philadelphia Flyers this year. In four games against Philly this season, including the Winter...

Another day, another game against the Flyers, another win against the Flyers. That makes it five for five against the Blueshirts against their division rivals. This game was owned by Callahan, Richards, and Gaborik, but special teams were the difference. The Rangers killed off all four of their penalties, and capitalized on three (THREE!) powerplay opportunities. Let’s get to the...
Usually when it’s the day of a Rangers game, and we all are scouring through Twitter to find out who the scratches will be, perhaps even what the lines will be, all of us usually have the same main objective. Is Henrik playing? When we find out Biron is in net, there is usually this [...]

PHILADELPHIA — This is where 2011-12 began for Marc Staal, on Jan. 2 on the outdoor rink at the ballpark across the parking lot from where the Rangers this afternoon will attempt to go 5-0 against the Flyers this season.
It hasn’t been a smooth ride for Staal, who missed...
The Rangers own a four-point edge over the Flyers for first place in the Atlantic Division largely because of their ability to stymie Philadelphia's offense this year.
