Rangers Beat Flyers in Game One

As physical and undisciplined as they are, we knew the Flyers would take penalties.  What we didn’t know was whether the Rangers would take advantage.

They did. And they won.

It sounds overly simple, but the truth often is.  After an early exchange of goals, the Blueshirts and the Bullies went into the third period tied at one.  The Rangers had the better of the play throughout the first two periods, but hadn’t been able to beat Ray Emery again.

That was, until rookie Jason Akeson’s stick drew Carl Hagelin’s blood, and gave the Blueshirts a 4-minute man advantage.  Well, what would have been four minutes.  In all, Akeson would spend less than two in the box as Brad Richards and Derek Stepan both scored to give the Rangers a 3-1 lead.

A third goal six minutes later would put the final nail in the Flyers’ coffin and give the Rangers the advantage heading into the series’ second game on Easter Sunday.
