Rangers 4 - Flyers 1 Game One: Points Per Game
The Rangers drew first blood--literally and figuratively--in their best of seven first-round playoff series with the Philadelphia Flyers Thursday night at The Garden, skating to a 4-1 victory. Bouyed by a three-goal third period, the Rangers have now won nine straight home games against the Flyers.
However, as well as the Rangers played--and they did have the puck nearly the entire night--they are well aware that this was a 1-1 game nearly halfway through the third period, so there is still room for improvement once Game Two arrives Sunday afternoon.
