5 Keys for Philadelphia Flyers to Beat New York Rangers in Playoff Matchup
Matt Slocum
The Flyers prepare to meet the Rangers in the opening round of the playoffs.

The Philadelphia Flyers will open the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs Thursday night when they take on the New York Rangers.

This will be the 11th time these two rivals will meet in the postseason. For a look back at the previous 10 series, click here.

These two teams are very evenly matched. The Rangers finished the regular season with just two more points than the Flyers. In addition, the Flyers and Rangers split their regular-season series, with each team winning both of its games on home ice.

Here is a look at the five keys to this series from a Flyers' point of view. The more successful the Orange and Black are at making these five things happen, the better their chances are of victory.
