  Playing for respectability in the waning weeks of the strike-shortened 2013 season, the Flyers managed to hold off a late rally from the Rangers Tuesday night for their 19th win of the season. The Flyers (19-21-3), 5 points behind the Rangers for 8th place in the Eastern Conference, were fresh off of a 7-3 smackdown of the Montreal Canadiens comming into the Wells Fargo Center for Tuesday's game. Expectations were not quite that high, however, considering the Flyers' inability in general this season to be good for long stretches for time, not to mention recent acquisition Steve Mason starting. Mason got the nod over Ilya Bryzgalov, who has started 38 of the Flyers' 43 games this season. Mason, though, likely surprised a few with his performance.

Rangers’ Carl Hagelin slashes the Flyers’ Brayden Schenn in the nuts (VIDEO)

YouTube The Rangers winger Carl Hagelin obviously doesn’t have much respect for Flyers forward Brayden Schenn.  Tuesday night, Hagelin gave Schenn a little “who’s your daddy?” slash to a region no man wants to get hit. Game officials either share Hagelin’s lack of respect for Schenn or were skating with their eyes closed because there was no penalty called on the play.

Ryan While Lights up Kent Huskins; Will White be getting a ban from the NHL?

, Last night, the Habs Goon/forward Ryan White caught Flyers defenseman Kent Huskins in the head with this dirty check. You have to wonder if the NHL will be giving White a very long suspension?
