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 heard, it sounds like Kreider was just overthinking things earlier in the year (too much Torts in his ear?). Now that he's just playing, we're seeing the Kreider of last postseason. Kid's speed is deadly. Little snarl to his game tonight as well, which was awesome to see. ...while Miller didn't get on the score sheet tonight, I was real impressed with his physical game. It looked like Schenn tried to rough him up a few times and he refused to back down. Big hit on Simmonds was nice also. 10-for-13 on faceoffs. ...looks like the Rangers don't need Zuccarello to spark the offense afterall. Anyway they can void that contract? ...shades of last year with Girardi and McDonagh combining for 55 minutes of ice time. And like last year, they were dominant. ...wonder if Giroux was begging Lundqvist to let him score again. If it wasn't for two bad bounces that's a shutout. ...can't enjoy this one for too long with Ottawa on Thursday.
