by @NHLFlyers /


The Flyers posted seven goals, three fighting majors and got a stellar performance in net from Alex Lyon in relief to earn a 7-4 win over the Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.

Today's matinee at MSG began with a six-goal first period with tallies from Andrew MacDonald, Scott Laughton and Brandon Manning as the teams skated to a 3-3 tie after 20 minutes, but lost starting goaltender Michal Neuvirth to a lower-body injury.

Alex Lyon entered for the final 40 minutes and the Flyers took over the rest of the way behind his performance, outscoring the Rangers, 4-1. Linemates Claude Giroux and Travis Konecny each posted three-point games with a goal and two assists, while Ivan Provorov was a +4.

Lyon stopped 25 of 26 shots, including all 12 in the third period to earn his first career win. Henrik Lundqvist allowed all seven goals, stopping 30 shots in the loss.
