First meeting of the season with the Flys, so let the blah-blah-blah-blah about the Winter Classic commence. I’m sure by the end of today we’ll be sick of hearing about it. I know I am already. Oooh. Oooh. They’re selling Winter Classic hats!
The Rangers finish their third back-to-backs of the season (1-0-1 in the second games so far). Since 2009-10, the Rangers are 22-8-3 in the second of back-to-back sets, including 10-3-1 at MSG.
Anyway, ya boys—winners of eight of their last 10—are coming off a shining game in D.C. Friday, albeit one where the opponent and its goalie were pretty shoddy.
Same lineup for the Rangers today, which means Christensen and Stralman are prucha’d. Lundqvist in goal. Does it really matter who’s in goal for the Flyers? Does it ever matter?
