  1. Rangers Hold Off Flyers in Series Finale, Face Penguins Next

    It took all New York could muster to fight off a late Philadelphia push, but the Rangers survived to skate another day, beating the Flyers 2-1 in Game 7 on Wednesday. Both New York goals — one from Daniel Carcillo, another from Benoit Pouliot — came during the second period. Game 7 in Madison Square Garden may be hockey’s greatest spotlight, and the home team was ready. “No one was shying away from the big stage,” Carcillo said. The Rangers will face the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday as the second round of Stanley Cup playoffs gets under way.
