Flyers win 2-0, Rangers delusional in defeat - Travis Hughes, Broad Street Hockey
Any time that a Philadelphia team beats a New York team, it is a good day. This was the case last night down on Broad Street as the Flyers shut out the Rangers 2-0. To make it even better, the Flyers beat them up in the process.
I love a good tight hockey game enough as it is but when you get some good fights then you are in for a treat. Dan Carcillo drew the ire of Rangers coach John Tortorella by fighting Marian Gaborik, who has one career fighting major to his name. Later Scott Hartnell and Sean Avery got into it.
Tempers were flaring during and after the game. Tortorella had some stern words directed toward the Flyers bench during the game and again in his post game press conference, but the bottom line is the Flyers won 2-0 and this rivalry is as heated as it has ever been.
Or so you would think. The Flyers have outscored the Rangers 8-0 in their last two meetings. The Flyers are still out of a playoff spot right now (one point behind eighth seed New York Islanders) but they have games in hand and are only two points behind the sixth seeded Rangers.
