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

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.

— Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom in an interview with Washington Post about whether he will be able to play in 2015-16 opener
