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

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
