Rangers score 3 in 1st period, coast to 4-1 win over Flyers

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Daniel Carcillo, Rick Nash and Derick Brassard scored less than 10 minutes into the game, and Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves as the New York Rangers routed the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 on Sunday night.

Chris Kreider netted his team-leading 12th goal in the second period to help the Rangers win their third straight and fourth in five (4-0-1). New York, 8-2-1 in its last 11, is tied in points with Washington for second place in the Metropolitan Division — one ahead of Philadelphia.

The Rangers have won seven straight against the Flyers at home, outscoring them 28-8.

Ray Emery rebounded after the rough first period and finished with 31 saves for the Flyers.

Lundqvist lost his shutout bid when Mark Streit scored a power-play goal 6:49 into the third.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
