Rangers try to climb in Eastern Conference standings

NY Rangers (39-29-9) at Philadelphia (21-45-11) 7:00 pm EDT

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The New York Rangers go for their sixth victory in their last seven games when they visit the lowly Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

The Rangers have 87 points and are seventh in the Eastern Conference, one point behind Tampa Bay (42-32-4), but had their four-game winning streak snapped in a 6-4 loss at Montreal (40-32-6) on Tuesday.

New York leads eighth-place Montreal by one point.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped just 11-of-15 shots and had his five-game winning streak snapped. He has been solid against the Flyers this season, winning four of five starts with a 2.45 goals-against average.

The Flyers have a league-low 53 points and have lost seven of their last 10 contests, including a 3-1 loss to New Jersey on Friday.

Simon Gagne scored and Martin Biron made 21 saves for the Flyers, who have won just two of seven meetings with the Rangers this season.

Biron has been reasonably solid since being acquired from Buffalo at the February 27 trade deadline, going 5-6-1 with 34 goals allowed in 11 starts.
