NBC to air Rangers-Flyers game on April 3
NBC Sports will air the New York Rangers at Philadelphia Flyers game as its “NHL Game of the Week” on Sunday, April 3. The game at the Wells Fargo Center will start at 12:30 p.m. ET.

It's the final meeting of the season between the teams, both of whom are among the top eight in the Eastern Conference. Philadelphia has won four of the first five.

The Flyers have won the last four meetings in Philadelphia, including a season-ending 2-1 shootout win last April 11 that sent Philadelphia to the Stanley Cup Playoffs and ended the Rangers' season.

The Flyers enter Thursday's games leading both the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference with a record of 43-19-7, good for 93 pts. The Rangers are third in the Atlantic Division standings and seventh in the Eastern Conference with a record of 37-30-4 and 78 pts.
Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
