If traffic is flowing I can make that trip in about 90 minutes from New Dorp. Not a bad ride at all.

This article might be pretty accurate. I'm waiting for my buddy inside MSG and I've been watching people enter , I think I saw only 3 flyer jerseys come in over the past hour. I bought tickets for Fridays game so hopefully there will be plenty of blue in the stands!!

The Broad Street subway goes to the arena.

That should make life much easier for our brothers in blue who rely on PT to get there. LGR!

Not that I'm complaining, but I was shocked at how few Flyers fans were in the stands today, given that Philly is such a rabid hockey city, its proximity to NY, and the fact it's a weekend game (albeit Easter).

On the topic...really contemplating going. I know there's the individual ticket forum, but are there any groups from NJ going that have an extra ticket want to me up and go together this Friday?

Any advice for those of us making the trip down to Philly tonight? I'm planning to wear my Rangers jersey at the game but I'm expecting we'll get harassed all night by the drunk lunatics down there. One of my friends went down for a regular season game and he said that he received threats all game long.

I know that's to be expected but what's been your experience in Philly? Did you feel safe enough to cheer on the Rangers without having to constantly look around your back? I'm expecting the most hostile environment I've ever been to for a Rangers game. I went to Washington last year for Game 7 and the ECF Game 6 against the Devils. Both were pretty hostile but I'm sure it's going to be on another level tonight. LGR!

Plams, pls. You are as frightening as a kitten.

On the main board the Flyers fans seem to think there won't be many Rangers fans there tonight. I hope they are very wrong.

I'm harmless unless I get harassed and can do something about it. And when I turn around and the 45 year old and his kid my age are both threatening to kill me, I'll do something about it...

Unfortunately, if you wear your Ranger's colors, there is a good chance you will have to deal with some jerks.

Hopefully it stops with verbal insults and does't slip into the physical.

I went to school at BC in Boston and would wear my Rangers stuff and would get into it with the Boston faithful, but there was always a pretty big contingent of Rangers fans and that kept things tense but I believe stopped it from getting physical. (Still hate the Boston fans though.)

Philly fans are also remarkably low-brow. So expect the worst...

And good luck having security help you out if there are issues.

I went last year to a Rangers philly game there with my g/f and 2 friends. Not much was said to us except a couple of rangers suck which we just ignored. Wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. As long as you understand some stuff will be shouted and let it roll off your back you will be fine. I have never had a problem going to an away game. Just recognize where you are and try to not get into it because there are a lot of idiots down there.

Went by myself to the first game in Philly after the 2004 lockout. Got a free ticket 10 rows from the ice and wore my Rangers jersey. People yelling at me the whole night. Older woman gave me the finger when Rangers scored. Rangers won in like twelve-round shootout I believe and whole place was quiet and I was screaming Lets go Rangers. No physical abuse and no threats.

I think there will be plenty of Rangers fans there and police will definitely be on notice. Good luck to whoever is making the trip.

I feel like if there's not many fans there tonight, it's because it's a tuesday night. Friday's game tho....

I had the same experience at the Winter Classic. Even walking back to the train station all the Flyer fans were decent.
