Wayne Simmonds has goal, assist in Flyers' 4-2 win over Rangers

PHILADELPHIA - Wayne Simmonds had a goal and an assist to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday.

Vincent Lecvalier, Sean Couturier and Luke Schenn also scored for Philadelphia, which rebounded from a 7-3 home defeat to San Jose on Thursday.

Chris Kreider and Derick Brassard scored for the Rangers, who lost for just the second time in their past nine games.

Philadelphia came out with an edge in the first period following Thursday's loss that coach Craig Berube called "embarrassing."

The opening 20 minutes featured physical play by both sides, including big hits from Philadelphia's Zac Rinaldo on Daniel Carcillo and New York's Derek Stepan on Steve Downie, among others.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.
