Mason had 30 saves on 31 shots and held the Rangers to just one goal, which is probably going to have to be the Flyers' new game plan this season. "Hold the opposing team to 1." Sad but true.
Brad Richards tied the game at the end of the 1st, but Coburn put one home early in the 3rd to secure the victory for the orange and black. Note: This was quickly followed by a 10-minute span of no shots on goal by the Flyers.
This was not an impressive win by any stretch of the imagination, but I think at this point we'll take them any way we can get them. The fact that it came against a divisional opponent (even though there's about 20 of those now) makes it all the better.
The Rangers almost tied it up 2-2, but the goal by J.T. Miller was determined to have been kicked in. The Flyers also went 0 for 4 on the power play, bringing them to 3 for 37 on the season. The Flyers look to improve upon those numbers this Saturday in Long Island v. the Islanders.
