Rangers 4, Flyers 2

The New York Rangers (11-8-2) defeated the Philadelphia Flyers (11-12-1) by the score of 4-2, tonight. For a box score go to Yahoo! Sports.

…passion? Emotion? Heart? Who do these guys think they are the 2011-12 New York Rangers? Now this is the team we all expected when the season started. I didn't like that they were pushed around way too much tonight, but Rome wasn't built in a day.

…seriously? Were we really chanting "We Don't Want You!" to Nash last season? Dirty, filthy, Nashty.

…not sure I'd trade Callahan for any other captain in the NHL right now.

…never like to see a guy who has sustained a major concussion take a puck to the forehead/eye like that. Praying that Staal is ok.

…i guess it took a 19-year old rookie to jump start Gaborik, who was looking to shoot all night.

…speaking of that 19-year old rookie, Miller has looked like anything but during this home stand.

…three power play goals in the last two games without Richards. Just sayin'.

…assuming McDonagh was motivated by my post this morning suggesting he was fighting it this season. Your welcome. lol

…Boyle might be struggling to score this season, but inside the face-off circle he surely is not. 11-for-13 tonight.

…i normally don't like to compliment the other team, especially the Flyers, but how good would Simmons look in a Rangers uniform?

…eight points (4g, 4a) in the last ten games for Stepan should put to bed any talk that the Rangers would be better off with Ryan O'Reilly.

…since he wasn't going to see the ice for the rest of the game anyway, I wonder if Bickel threw that punch at Hartnell knowing he'd get tossed just to get a jump on his teammates for the good shower stall.

…until Hartnell punched him in the face on the bench, I had forgotten the Rangers had recalled Haley. Welcome to Tortorella's World, Mike. Where fourth liners go to die.

…i tell you what, if Staal has to miss anytime, I'm more than confident in Stralman's ability to take on the extra minutes.

…back at it Thursday night on Long Island.

Rangers 4, Flyers 2

The New York Rangers (21-8-4) defeated the Philadelphia Flyers (21-9-4) by the score of 4-2, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports.

…sort of fun being a Rangers fan right now, huh?

…surprised to see the Rangers come out as flat as they did, but their forecheck really took over in the second and third period and, in my opinion, dominated the Flyers.

…with all due respect to Biron, there is no 1 and 1a in goal. Hank is in a class of his own.

…Bickel the playmaker?

…ladies and gentleman, your NHL leading goal scorer Marian Gaborik.

…is there anything Stepan can’t do?

…amazing Garden crowd tonight. Loved the “Flyers Suck” chant. But what was up with the boos every time Jagr touched the puck?

…guess that goal sparked Dubinsky. He was all over the ice tonight.

…Erixon had a rude welcome to the Rangers/Flyers rivalry as the Flyers were being real physical with him.

…the points and + rating have been great for Del Zotto, but I am loving the snarl to his game this season.

…Fedotenko goal clinches Avery being waived after roster freeze.

…very impressed with ability of Callahan-Richards-Hagelin to shut down Flyers top line. Nice to see them finally find some offensive chemistry in the third period as well.

…while Stralman’s assist on the Gaborik goal was pretty sweet I thought his hip check in the first period was more impressive. Didn’t think he had that in him.

…loved McD jumping into the offensive zone every chance he had.

…score would have been even worse if the Rangers could hit the net.

…oh yeah, first place in the Atlantic baby!!!!

…off for the weekend then Islanders back at MSG on Monday.
