Razor, Akeson comeback stronger, Flyers win GAME 2 on Luke Schenn goal
Luke Schenn scored the game winning goal on Sunday against the Rangers. It was his first ever playoff goal. He finished +1, 2 hits, 2 blocked shots in almost 18 minutes of ice time.
Wayne Simmonds carried the puck out of the offensive zone past several Rangers and chipped in the puck into the open net to bury the Rangers on Sunday. It was Wayne's first goal of the series.
Flyers 4 Rangers 2
Jake Voracek (end of first period), Jason Akeson (2nd period), Luke Schenn (2nd period) and Wayne Simmonds (empty netter) scored four straight goals to overcome a 2-0 Rangers lead in New York on Easter Sunday as the Flyers evened the seven game series at 1 game apiece.
The Flyers penalty kill was amazing killing 5 of 6 penalties. Something the Flyers will have to shore up if they are going to have long term success against the Rangers.
Ray Emery was sharp in stopping 31 Rangers shots, including the last 29 in a row.
