The New York Rangers took a strong two-game win streak into Thursday night’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers. During the win streak the Rangers were playing hard offensively (on the forecheck), defensively (on the backcheck), and their goaltending was outstanding. But the Flyers would end the Rangers win streak at two, while continuing their own which has now hit five straight games.

The Rangers first loss in three games was a combination of a lack of offense, defense, and a couple of weak goals scored by the Flyers. The referees could become part of the blame also, because they were terrible, but bad referees have been part of every game for the Rangers this season, and they still have six wins. Therefore, the referees cannot be blamed for the loss.

The first period was a weak period for both teams, with the period ending with a tied score of 0-0. The Rangers totaled two shots on goal in the first period, and missed out on a power–play opportunity late in the period. Rangers forward Erik Christensen would draw a hooking penalty in the last second of the first period, setting up the Rangers with a man-advantage to begin period number two.
