There's little time for rest, too. The Flyers and Rangers play again Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.
Simmonds scored in the first period and twice more in the second for his first career post-season hat trick. Mason survived a busy first period and stopping 31 straight shots until Carl Hagelin scored late in the third. Mats Zuccarello also scored for New York in the final minute.
By the third, Simmonds had already helped stake the Flyers to a 4-0 lead and the outcome was a mere formality.
