And what a Game 7 it was at the Garden. Incredibly intense stuff.
I’ll have a lot more about this matchup in the Friday column, but suffice it to say for now that, no matter the outcome for the Penguins in the second round, that they got the better matchup of the two. No doubt in my mind about that, especially after seeing the goaltending the Flyers got from Steve Mason last night.
Here’s New York Daily News coverage of the Rangers’ victory.
And Philadelphia Inquirer coverage of the Flyers’ loss.
Here, from the NHL’s YouTube channel, is footage inside the Rangers’ room afterward:
