Tale of the Tape: Flyers visit Rangers
Tale of the Tape: Philadelphia Flyers visit New York Rangers on Wednesday Night Rivalry.

Three weeks into the season, the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers were scrambling to end slumps that threatened to keep them out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Things have changed a lot since then: They will meet at Madison Square Garden in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, RDS, TSN2) with the winner having the inside track on second place in the Metropolitan Division and home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs -- likely against the loser.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
