The Philadelphia Flyers defeated the New York Rangers in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series by a 2-1 score, tying the series 2-2.
Dominic Moore opened the scoring in the first period on a wrap-around effort to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead, but Matt Read tied the game for the Flyers after taking a bank dump-in and firing it past Henrik Lundqvist.
The Flyers took a lead in the second period on a power-play tip-in effort from Jakub Voracek.
Steve Mason gave up a goal early in the game, but stopped 37 of 38 shots in a first-star effort, giving the Flyers the peace of mind that they have been seeking for many years in the crease.
The Rangers held a 16-6 lead in shots after the first period and exploited the Flyers lack of a response to stretch passes, creating several scoring chances. This lack of conversion ultimately proved to be the difference, as Mason held the fort the rest of the way and the Flyers were able to find a go-ahead goal in the second period.
Philadelphia 2, New York 1. Final.
