THIS DATE IN FLYERS' HISTORY: April 16, 2003 -- Flyers 3 at Toronto 2 (3 OTs)

In Game 4 at Toronto, Mark Recchi's tantalizing goal gave the Flyers a 3-2 in triple-OT. Recchi's second goal of the game was deflected by Ed Belfour who made 72 saves, one shy of Kelly Hrudey's NHL record. Philly outshot the Leafs 75-38 (37-10 in regulation), the most shots on goal in any game by the Flyers. Michal Handzus assisted on both of Recchi's goals, had nine shots on goal and was a +2. Eric Desjardins, Kim Johnsson and Marcus Ragnarsson each played 40+ minutes.

I wonder who gets the call from Adk since Gervais and Huskins are out. My guess is Lilja, Syvretor Manning.

wonder who comes up if Gervais can't play

I hope he can't. I'd rather see somebody that may suck - as opposed to Gervais

I forgot about Lilja... crap. I'd rather see Manning and then Syvret then Lilja. At least Syvret is a young guy. I think he's better than Gervais anyway.

I would love to see them recalling Mark Alt for this game if Gervais isn't ready. But god please no Lilja. Give the opportunity to youngsters. Brandon Manning is another one who comes to my mind. I know he has been pretty awful this season for Adirondack but whatever. It's not like play-off race anymore (although there is still a chance). It would be good for him just like for Alt. They can step up their game... make some good impact and impress.

It's too hard to wish Flyers not to win this game vs Rangers. I would like to see entertaining game again just like yesterday vs Habs and see the Flyers score a lot of goals. But still, this draft is pretty damn important for us and we better get some high draft pick.
But hey guys there is a still chance to get somehow to the 8th spot and kill the Pens once again. (That would be probably the sweetest thing in my entire life ). I can see us winning next 5 or 6 games and then Rangers or more likely Islanders (or more likely both) to go on some big losing streak.

I don't think Alt's contract starts till next season.

This will be the first game I am attending since moving to Philly. The Jets can still make the playoffs ahead of the Rangers so I am cheering for the Flyers tonight. Then we can tank the rest of the season for all I care. Let's go Flyers!!!

No, as MSE said his contract starts next season. He's still playing in Adk

This is correct he's currently on a ATO


D is gonna be dead tonight. I just noticed that Gus played over 24 minutes for the second straight game. Schenn played over 33 minutes and Kimmo about 29 minutes. Even with the injury to Huskins, the Dane only got 13 minutes of ice time and Foster just over 12. I'm sure those three will be getting lots of ice time again being as though the team is running out of competent defenseman so by the 3rd period they will be dead tired.

Figured, watch him get a shutout too. Nurse is slowly slipping away...

I forgot about Lilja... crap. I'd rather see Manning and then Syvret then Lilja. At least Syvret is a young guy. I think he's better than Gervais anyway.
If Syvret plays today, the only defenseman older than him will be Kimmo.

... and Syvret is not an NHL level defenseman.

I would much rather give a shot to someone who may have a future in the NHL.

Per Meltzer....keys to the game.

I don't see the Rangers giving the Flyers time and space like Montreal did last night. Flyers shouldn't necessarily patted themselves on the back for playing their system well b/c Montreal didn't really play a tight D game at all...

Anyway, I guess I'll split if the Flyers are down after the 2nd period...what an amazing stat by the Rags.

The usual caveat of playing against the Rangers: Do not put your team in position to try and chase the game. This season, New York has the NHL's fourth-best record (13-2-1) when scoring first. Trying to stage a third-period comeback is futile. When leading after two periods since the 2010-11 season, the Rangers are 71-0-3, including a mark of 12-0-0 in the lockout-shortened 2013 season.

Another critical key when facing the Rangers: Your goaltender cannot allow anything remotely soft, because chances are strong that Lundqvist and the shot-blocking oriented team in front of him won't provide any gift goals in return. New York's team goals against average of 2.44 ranks 4th in the NHL (the Flyers are 25th at 3.02). It is in the goal-scoring department, where the Rangers rank an anemic 28th in the NHL at 2.34 goals per game, that the Blueshirts are lacking. If you make the Rangers earn their goals, you've got a good chance at scratching out a win with a couple greasy-but-good goals at the other end.

When the Flyers play the Rangers, Philly often seems to fall behind and make partial comebacks -- or even forge a tie -- but to make a critical mistake or two thereafter that the Rangers capitalize on to take the lead for good. The Flyers need to break that pattern if they are to do damage to the eighth-seeded Rangers playoff hopes.

It's an incredible stat for sure. That's what having a goaltender like Hank can do for you.
