NY Rangers Versus Philadelphia Flyers: Best Moments from the Rivalry

Broadway versus Broad Street. It's one of hockey's most storied rivalries, and it continues to be white hot today.

The Flyers joined the NHL for the 1967-68 season along with the California Seals, Pittsburgh Penguins, Minnesota North Stars, St. Louis Blues and Los Angeles Kings, while the Rangers reserve the right to be among the league's Original Six. They played their first season in 1926. 

Needless to say, it didn't take long for the matchup to catch fire, considering the teams' close proximity and fans' general pride for their own cities.

The teams have met 267 times in the regular season—it actually happens to be the most featured fixture in Flyers history—and in the playoffs, the two teams have met 10 times, with the Flyers getting the better of the Rangers, 6-4.

So when going back through history to determine which moments are best between these two, there's a whole lot to choose from. And with the recent successes of the two clubs, the best may be ahead of us. 

With that being said, let's take a look at some of the best moments in the nearly half-century long Rangers/Flyers rivalry.
