In the second period the Rangers would push the score to 3-0. The first goal coming on a scrum for a loose puck in front of the net. Brad Richards found the puck before any Flyer and backhanded it past Mason to make it 2-0.
Later in the period it was a comedy of errors as Coburn passed the puck to Hal Gill, who was subbing in for the injured Nicklas Grossmann, in the defensive zone. Dominic Moore was on Gill the entire time and Gill failed to handle the pass, which gave Moore the chance to steal the puck and promptly beat Mason to make it 3-0. There's not a lot of instances that make you miss Grossmann, but that was certainly one of them.
The Flyers showed some signs of life to close the second period. Vinny Lecavalier finally put Philly on the board with a power play goal with 33 seconds left.
The third dragged on with the Flyers not producing much offense. With over three minutes left Berube pulled Mason and Claude Giroux was able to score his first of the playoffs on a one timer from the top of the zone. 1:29 remained in the game at that point. Hopefully this goal will open the flood gates for G now.
Brian Boyle ended any hope of a comeback with an empty netter with 15 seconds left. Dominic Moore won the footrace for the puck and fed Boyle who scored on the empty net.
The Flyers led the game in shots, though it didn't really feel like it, 26-22. They now head back to the Wells Fargo Center for a Tuesday night game. They are 7-9 in elimination games at the Well.
