Brad Richards scored the game-winning goal at 5:21 of the third period for the Rangers.
Richards, the 2004 Conn Smythe Trophy winner as Stanley Cup Playoff MVP and now one of the highest-paid players in the game, came up biggest when his team needed him to, putting home a rebound by Brandon Dubinsky to give New York its first and only lead.
It didn't help the Flyers that Jaromir Jagr sustained an injury and couldn't finish the contest, or who knows what heroics he himself might have been able to pull off for Philadelphia? Claude Giroux, the league's second-leading scorer, also scored a neat backhand goal in the second period to put Philly up, 2-0.
Richards wasn't the only Rangers star to come through big-time, though...
