Playing four games in five days can be taxing on any team. In the preseason, there is no need for a team's regulars to be burned out that early.  So with the B team dressed for the second straight, the Rangers were able to power their way to a win as the Flyers fell for the second straight night by a score of 6-3 at Madison Square Garden.

Flyers effort must be better in must-win Game 4

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) The Philadelphia Flyers played dump and chase in Game 1 at Madison Square Garden, but not the way it usually operates. Unable to penetrate the New York Rangers’ defensive vale to establish any kind of forecheck and gain possession, what ended up instead happening was Flyers skaters dumped the puck into the New York zone and chased the Rangers...

Flyers Rise Up On Easter Sunday

The Flyers went into Sunday afternoon's game with the Rangers faced with the reality of being in a must win situation. Yes, it was only game 2, but they hadn't won in Madison Square Garden in 9 previous tries, so to go down 2 games to none knowing they would have to win 4 out of 6, and at least one in New York, would have been disastrous. With these circumstances in mind, today...

The Takeaway from Rangers vs. Flyers Game 1

The Rangers dominated the Flyers in game 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs; emphasis on dominated.
