Opponent Notes:
- The Flyers have lost nine straight games at Madison Square Garden.

- Philadelphia was outshot 13-1 in the third period of Game 1.

- The Flyers took six minor penalties in Game 1.

- Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek combined for zero shots on goal in Game 1.

- In Game 1, Luke Schenn and Matt Read tied for a team high five hits.

- Vincent Lecavalier was held pointless as well as shotless, while losing 3-of-4 faceoffs on the fourth line in Game 1.

- Sean Couturier was just 4-for-14 on faceoffs in Game 1.

- Damn I wish Tom Sestito was still on the Flyers just so Brad Richards could do this to him again…
