The Rangers defeated the Flyers 2-1 on home ice to improve to 3-3-0. It was the Flyers' second consecutive loss. They now sit at the bottom of the Atlantic Division with a record of 2-5-0.

The Rangers jumped out to an early lead thanks to a blast from the point courtesy of Michael Del Zotto. He later added an assist on a second period Ryan Callahan goal that put the Rangers up 2-0.

Kimo Timonen brought the teams within one midway through the third period, but that was all the Flyers' offense had tonight.

In truth, the Rangers could have won by more if it wasn't for Ilya Bryzgalov's superb play in goal for the Flyers. But ultimately it was the Flyers failure to generate a steady flow of offensive pressure that cost them this game.
