The New York Rangers (23-9-4) defeated the Philadelphia Flyers (22-11-4) by the score of 3-2, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports.

...despite every effort by the refs to get this Winter Classic into overtime the Rangers gutted out an impressive win. No matter where this team plays or under what circumstances, they are going to give maximum effort to the final buzzer and it was on full display today.

...what a weekend. Wish the Rangers were involved in this every year. Not sure Torts would agree.

...between the Kopecky beatdown and his two goal today, Rupp has quickly made himself a fan favorite. Jagr salute didn't hurt either.

...so this Richards guy is pretty clutch, huh?

...refs forgot that no matter how one-sided they tried to make it, the Rangers still had Lundqvist in goal. Hank is an outwardly emotional guy during the game, but you could tell by his reaction to his save on Briere that he really wanted that one.

...while he only got 12 minutes of ice time, it was real great seeing Staal out there again.

...i know Stepan wants to get the puck in the hands of the Rangers best scorer, but shoot the puck kid.

...thought that might have been Prust's best game all season. See what happens when he doesn't fight.

...no fighting majors? Assuming under different circumstances that wouldn't have been the case.

...got to feel for Woywitka being a last minute healthy scratch in this one.

...wasn't a huge fan of Rangers Winter Classic jersey when originally unveiled, but they looked spectacular during the game.

...off the next two days then Panthers in town on Thursday.
