The Rangers have exposed some weaknesses the Flyers have.

The Philadelphia Flyers are on the brink of elimination. After five games, they trail the New York Rangers in their opening-round NHL playoff series, 3-2.

Trailing in the series is disappointing, but the way the Flyers have lost is even more frustrating. The Rangers have outplayed the Flyers for most of the series and in doing so, have exposed the club's weaknesses for all to see.

Here is a look at five Philadelphia weak spots the Rangers have exposed during the first five games of this series. Notice that goaltending is not even on this list. The Flyers' goaltending hasn't been outstanding, but it's not a major reason Philadelphia trails in this series.

Feel free to comment on any of the items on this list or to add another reason you feel merits inclusion. As always, indicate why you feel the way you do.
