Rangers: Dating back to March 6, 2011, the Rangers have beaten the Flyers eight consecutive times, including all six a year ago. Prior to this streak, however, the Flyers had won five straight against the Blueshirts, starting with the shootout victory on the last day of the 2009-10 season which kept the Rangers from making the playoffs. During this eight-game winning streak against Philly, Henrik Lundqvist has posted a pair of shutouts---one last season, one the year before, both at Madison Square Garden.
Flyers: Philly has been dreadful on special teams to start the 2013 season. The Flyers have connected just once in 15 power play opportunities---just a 6.7 percent success rate). On the penalty kill the Flyers sit at a 62.5 percent success rate, allowing six goals in 16 times shorthanded.
