Lundqvist, Rangers top Flyers 3-1
Question of the Day
“For any team to win, you need your top players playing at a high level,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. “(Lundqvist) has found his game, and Ryan McDonagh has just been a force out there. He’s got to be getting some consideration for the Norris (Trophy) the way he is playing offensively and defensively.”
His best stop came with 5:23 left when he slid to his right to get his pad on a shot by Adam Hall off a rebound in tight. He then sprawled on his stomach and covered the puck with his glove.
In the opening minute of the second, Lundqvist denied Wayne Simmonds on a redirected shot and then pounced on the rebound.
Moore gave Lundqvist breathing room when he scored his sixth of the season with 12:21 remaining.
“We didn’t come out with our best effort,” Mason said. “We have to be better in big games like this.”
Mason tried to swing the puck from behind his net up the left-wing boards, but it was intercepted by Brian Boyle along the wall. Boyle sent the puck in front to Dorsett, who knocked it down, gathered it and sent in a backhander at 8:41.
The Flyers picked up the pace and built a 15-6 shots edge in the first and nearly tied it during a late power play.
“Philly dominated us as far as shots, and they got some chances on that power play at the end,” Vigneault said of the first period, “but that is when your goaltender has to come up big.
“When we had some breakdowns, he was the difference.”
NOTES: With Chris Kreider sidelined by a hand injury, the Rangers called up center J.T. Miller from Hartford (AHL). Kreider won’t accompany New York on its trip that begins Friday at Calgary. … The Flyers fell to 8-3-1 in March and 12-4-1 since Feb. 1. … The Rangers have won eight straight over the Flyers at home, dating to March 6, 2011.
