No doubt Streit would add more goals, Ryan White's physical pressence if important too.
Sean Couturier scored his second goal of the season crashing the net and smashing it by Rangers goalie Antti Raanta. Couturier was +1 with a blocked shot in 17 minutes of ice time against the Rangers.
Wayne Simmonds scored with 8 and half minutes to go in the second to give the Flyers a 1-0 lead. His open net goal with 50 seconds to go iced the game for the Flyers. In 17 and a half minutes he was +3 with an assist, hit and blocked shot.
Steve Mason improved to 7-3-1 lifetime against the Rangers with a 27 save shut-out. It was his 27th lifetime shut-out.
For the first time in 10 tries, the Flyers beat the Rangers in NY. They have also beaten them 3 straight times going back to last year.
A terrific lead in pass from Matt Read lead Simmonds into the zone all alone for the first goal. Couturier's goal in the third period was more of Simmonds hard work as he backed handed a shot that came out to Couturier. On the second wach, Sean scored.
The Rangers pulled Raanta with over 3 minutes to go, but never really mounted any pressure.
Nick Schultz took a nasty hit in the first period and missed the rest of the game. The Flyers will have a little two game road trip next week, Tuesday in Ottawa, then Friday in New Jersey.
Evgeny Medvedev played extremely well in his second straight start playing almost 26 minutes with a hit and 2 blocked shots against the Rangers.
Michael Del Zotto played more than 29 minutes against the Rangers registering an assist , going +2 with 4 hits and 2 blocked shots.
