Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen didn't hold back after Saturday's 5-2 defrocking of the Flyers by the Rangers.
That's five, straight Rangers wins against the Flyers this season.

Heading into last night's game in Detroit, everything was set up for Philly to lose the game and become the Red Wings' 20th consecutive victim on home ice. That is, in fact, what happened but the way that the Flyers lost the game was galling.
Even when the Flyers grabbed a pair of one-goal leads -- courtesy of a two-goal outburst from Brayden Schenn and a Max Talbot goal...

Same story, same result. And Kimmo Timonen, for one, has had just about enough.
For the fifth time in the 2011-12 regular season, the Philadelphia Flyers faced their division rival, the New York Rangers, in a battle for Eastern Conference supremacy. And for a fifth straight time, the Flyers found themselves on...
Scott Hartnell recorded the second “Gordie Howe Hat Trick” of his career. His last came Jan. 11, 2011 against Buffalo.
Claude Giroux’s 21st goal of the season pulled him within one point of Evgeni Malkin in the NHL scoring race. He has 21 goals and 40 assists for 61 points. Giroux was also 10-for-16 (63 percent) on faceoffs and is now 53.2 percent on the...

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...
The Philadelphia Flyers are looking to win their second Atlantic Division title in three seasons. That may not happen if they can't figure out how to beat the New York Rangers.
