The New York Rangers (16-13-3) defeated the Philadelphia Flyers (13-17-2) by the score of 5-2, tonight. For a box score, click here.
...is there any chance the Rangers can just play the Flyers for the rest of the season? In all seriousness, those are two huge points with games in Ottawa and Montreal looming.
...amazing what a little confidence can do for a team. Get the first goal, feel good about yourself and away you go. Didn't like that they relaxed after getting the 3-0 lead, but tonight's not the night to complain.
...Torts should be fired on the spot if he ever thinks about splitting up the Hagelin-Stepan-Nash line again. Combined eight points (3g, 5a) tonight.
...remember when Rangers fans wanted to trade Stepan for O'Reilly? LOL!!!!!!!
...man, Nash looks unstoppable when he plays with a real center.
...i didn't read Page Six today, but is Richards dating Olivia Munn again? Huge confidence building game.
...based on what we've h...

Per Steve Zipay, the Rangers are reportedly one of the top two teams contending for NCAA free agent Connor Allen out of UMass. In his 99 game NCAA career (through his junior year), the 6’1, 203 lb defenseman has a scoring line of 14-25-39. Allen, a native of Chicago is rumored to be down to the Rangers and Predators as his final two teams.
The Rangers, who are thin on defensive...

In case you missed it, the Rangers re-signed Mats Zuccarello, who will likely join the club within the week. Zuccarello will bring some stability and scoring to the bottom-six, something that is desperately needed. The addition of Zuccarello will lead to some lineup changes. When all the pieces fall into place, the odd-man out is not who you might think it...

The New York Rangers’ farm team, the Connecticut Whale, won two out of three games this past weekend at home. Defenseman Logan Pyett, forward Nick Palmieri, and Ranger prospect Andrew Yogan all had three points this weekend, while defenseman Dylan McIlrath, Sam Klassen, Blake Parlett, and forwards Ryan Bourque, Benn Ferriero, Brandon Segal, and rookie [...]

Whether you’re a lifelong fan of 40 years or a relative hockey/Rangers rookie we all have a that one common interest , the New York Rangers. However , why are we all Rangers ? Each fan has a background with this team that is unique and special to them. I would like to share mine [...]
The Flyers are falling faster than Joan Rivers face.
I'm absolutely shocked Laviolette still has a job. The players are even speaking SIGN language to him.
But since the Flyers seems to love our players and prospects, and the Kings have done so well collecting former Flyers, maybe they would like to take a "flier" on a few more? (did you see what I did there...
from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,
The overall math is simple. The Flyers are almost guaranteed a playoff spot with an 11-4-2 run in their final 17 games. A mark of 11-5-1 will give them a strong chance. They have a prayer at 9-4-4 or 10-5-2. And they're toast at 9-5-3 or worse. This season, it's not necessarily about the Flyers' overall record...
As ESPN hockey scribe Katie Strang reported last night, it appears that Mats Zuccarello will be returning to the New York Rangers.
The Blueshirts clearly need some offense and while Zuccarello is not exactly a Steven Stamkos or someone who can put the puck in the net on a consistent basis, he is someone that can create scoring chances with his speed, his willingness to go the net...

from Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull,
The Flyers played without emotion and dropped a 5-2 decision, slipping into 14th place in the 15-team Eastern Conference, seven points behind the Rangers, who sit in the eighth and final playoff spot.
The Flyers should have played each shift with desperation because their playoff lives are hanging by a thread.
Instead, they showed...

Dayton won't be intimidated by Kentucky and its ''40 minutes of dread.''
After all, the two teams played a closed scrimmage in the preseason and the Flyers hung tough with the Wildcats.
Yet that game was in October and both teams have improved since then. They will play Tuesday night in the second round of the women's NCAA tournament with a trip to the Bridgeport...
