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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
