Vigneault: Rangers confident, expect to see “another goalie” in Game 4

By Tom Gulitti With two days off before Game 4 of their first-round playoff series in Philadelphia on Friday, the Rangers did not practice today and there was no media availability with the players. Head coach Alain Vigneault held a conference call with a media, though. Below is the transcript of that conference call. Of note was that Vigneault said they are preparing to face “another goalie” in Game 4. Flyers coach Craig Berube wasn’t ready today to name his Game 4 starter, but it seems everyone is expecting Steve Mason to get the start Friday now that he’s healthy again and...

It wasn't quite Mark Messier's 1994 Eastern Conference finals guarantee, but Flyers captain Claude Giroux did assert Tuesday night without qualification that Philly is "going to tie up this series" with a win in Game 4 Friday night at Wells Fargo Center.

Crushed Ice: Martin, St. Louis, Rick Nash, Brad Richards are big names stepping up in big way for NY Rangers through first three games against Philadelphia Flyers

Big money-forwards Martin St. Louis (five points), Brad Richards (four points) and Rick Nash (four points) have been their team’s top offensive producers, and it is therefore no coincidence that the Rangers lead this first-round series against the Philadelphia Flyers, 2-1, with Game 4 upcoming Friday night at Wells Fargo Center.

Rangers 4, Flyers 1: Wrapping up

First things first, so far, there’s no indication Matt Read will face supplemental discipline from the NHL for his third-period hit on Dan Carcillo. That may change over the course of today but, as of right now, that’s the indication. Here’s the game story from The Record. And here’s Tom Gulitti’s sidebar on how the Rangers are containing Claude Giroux. So here’s the rapid-fire breakdown of the Rangers’ 4-1 win over the Flyers in Tuesday night’s Game 3 at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center to take a 2-1 lead in their Eastern Conference first-round series: 1.

Rangers' Dan Carcillo gets the last laugh against Flyers and their fans

The Ranger who played the least in Game 3 last night certainly was noticed the most, for better and for worse. That's pretty much the way Dan Carcillo's career has gone -- the Rangers are his sixth organization at age 29 and Game 3 was his first appearance of this playoff series.

Rangers 4, Flyers 1: Carcillo takes advantage

Dan Carcillo wore the Broadway Hat after about as eventful a third period as possible as the Rangers beat the Flyers, 4-1, in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference first-round series Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center to take a 2-1 series lead. Carcillo scored the clinching goal at 10:53, deflecting Brian Boyle’s shot after he came out of the penalty box for a questionable hook against Matt Read at 8:36. Then, as Carcillo skated to the glass to celebrate, a fan was caught making an obscene gesture directly at Carcillo. Even before that, Read had nailed Carcillo with a high shot by...
