The Philadelphia Flyers win gut check, 3–2 over the New York Rangers. Another goaltending battle saw Brian Elliott and Igor Shestyorkin each make 33 stops as the Philadelphia Flyers picked up a much-needed 2 points with a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers.
Philly nailed two power-play goals and were led by James Van Riemsdyk with two goals. His first went in off his face which led to him leaving the ice for a bit. Brendan Smith gave New York an early lead that JVR erased. Van Riemsdyk added another to make it 2-1 and Jake Voracek would push it to 3-1 before Artemi Panarin scored a late goal to get to the 3-2 final.
Wade Allison was a force the entire game and Captain Claude while not hitting the score sheet, fired 6 shots on goal. Joel Farabee ran into a bit of bad luck and was denied by Shesstyorkin on a close-in opportunity and also turned aside on a penalty shot.
A Win is a Win is a Win. Flyers win a gut check.
