Rangers not shy about physical play

The Rangers would like it known that despite all the attention paid to the Flyers’ emphasis on physical play, they, too, can bang some bodies. “We don’t want to back away from them,” fourth line right wing Derek Dorsett said. “We’re not going to be intimidated by it.  We’re all big boys, strong guys. We can go out there, finish our checks and counter their hits and it’ll be a fun series to be a part of.” “They’re going to be physical and so are we, it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, it shouldn’t be newsworthy,” Brian Boyle added. “It’s not like the...
