Rangers look to continue recent dominance of Flyers

Mar 21, 2008 - 12:13 PM NY Rangers (39-26-9) at Philadelphia (36-28-10) 7:00 pm EDT

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) - The New York Rangers have dominated the Philadelphia Flyers this season, losing only one of six games. The teams meet again on Friday as the push toward the playoffs continues.

The Rangers are 15-4-3 in their last 22 games and have won two straight, including Wednesday's 2-1 shootout win at New Jersey that improved New York's record against the Devils this season to 6-0-0.

Henrik Lundqvist has made eight consecutive starts for the Rangers, who might look to Steve Valiquette for Friday's game. Valiquette is 3-0-0 against the Flyers with a 0.36 goals-against average.

Center Scott Gomez, defenseman Daniel Girardi and left wing Brendan Shanahan have a combined four goals and 13 assists against Philadelphia. New York is currently sixth in the Eastern Conference standings.

Every game is critical for the Flyers, who are one point against of Buffalo for the final playoff spot in the East. Philadelphia snapped a four-game winless streak on Wednesday with a 3-2 home victory over Atlanta.

"We had a simple game plan, get pucks in deep, allow the pucks to the net and I really thought it paid off," Flyers' coach John Stevens said.

The Rangers have won 11 of their last 12 games in Philadelphia and are 6-0-1 there since a loss on April 15, 2006.
