The classic NHL rivalry lights up again as the Philadelphia Flyers arrive at Madison Square Garden to face the NY Rangers (8pm EST / 1am UK time).
New York's Madison Square Garden lights up tonight as the New York Rangers meet the Philadelphia Flyers for a heated matchup (8pm EST / 1am UK time). The rivalry between these two teams which earned the nickname "Broadway versus Broad Street" goes back to the 1970s. The two teams met 11 times in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with the last one seeing the two playing seven games in the Conference Quarterfinals, with the Rangers winning the series at 4-3.
New York Rangers
The Rangers are currently positioned fourth in the Metropolitan Division with 18 points, 7 points away from leaders Pittsburgh Penguins. With 18 games played, the Rangers have 7 wins, 7 losses and 4 overtime losses.
New York's top player Rick Nash currently has 12 goals which are tied to Dallas Stars' Tyler Seguin, but Nash has no goals in the last nine games with the Flyers, something he'll work to change tonight. Goalie Henry Lundqvist is in top form despite the Thursday's shootout loss to Colorado Avalanche. Lundqvist allowed only 16 goals in the last 12 meetings between his team and the Flyers.
Philadelphia is positioned sixth in the Metropolitan, two points away from the Rangers with 7 wins, 7 losses and 7 overtime losses. Having lost at home 4-3 to Columbus Blue Jackets, Philadelphia went on to lose their away game 6-3 against the Montreal Canadiens, putting them on a bad away losing spell with three straight road losses. Their last win at the Square came in the second Conference Quarterfinals game, a 4-2 against the hosts. Tonight Philly will count on top player Jakub Voracek and Captain Claude Giroux.
