NEW YORK -- Early in Game 2 against the Philadelphia Flyers, the New York Rangers appeared on their way to capturing a 2-0 series lead in their Stanley Cup Playoffs First Round series. But as the game wore on, they struggled to capitalize on their opportunities and the Flyers made the most of their own, scoring four unanswered goals to win 4-2 and tie the series 1-1 before Game 3 on Tuesday in Philadelphia (8 p.m. ET; CNBC, TSN2, MSG, CSN-PH).
It was a startling turnaround considering the Rangers led 2-0 8:22 into the game. They scored two goals on their first four shots and a power play that scored twice in their 4-1 victory in Game 1 got another goal after the Flyers began taking undisciplined penalties.
But the Rangers faltered on the man advantage after the first period, going 1-for-6 for the game.
