The New York Rangers, coming of an impressive 7-1 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins, take on the Atlantic leading Philadelphia Flyers in a heated battle at the worlds most famous arena. The last meeting between these two teams ended in a 4-3 OT win for the Flyers.

Simon Gagne scored in the OT session after only 7 seconds. The Rangers, as always this season are being led by leading scorer, Jaromir Jagr, and his trusted sidekick, Petr Prucha. Who have combined for 57 goals. Philadelphia will have to make its trip to New York without center Peter Forsberg, but they do come with a chip on their shoulder after getting beaten and booed in their last appearence versus the Tampa Bay Lightning.

In other news, Petr Nedved makes his return to Madison Square Garden, only this time as a Philadelphia Flyer. Last but not least, there have been no reports yet whether Colton Orr will play in this game or not, but the whole hockey world is eagerly awaiting the much anticipated news regarding that matter.




Preview from NHL.com


The New York Rangers want more than their first playoff appearance in seven seasons. They want a division title as well.

To get a step closer to that goal, the Rangers will need to beat the Atlantic Division leaders when they take on the Philadelphia Flyers Monday at Madison Square Garden.

New York has lost four in a row and six of seven at home to the Flyers.

The Rangers, who have already exceeded their 27-win total from 2003-04, are looking for their eighth win in 11 games after three straight overtime losses from Dec. 31-Jan. 5.

League points leader Jaromir Jagr overcame a severe cold to score twice and rookie Petr Prucha added his 25th of the season, tying him with highly touted Sidney Crosby for third in the league among rookie goal-scorers.

Jagr knows this game will be big.

"First off, it's going to be a different team than Pittsburgh was," he said . "It's going to be a big test for us. As long as we play the same way as we did today, we'll have a chance."

The Flyers, meanwhile, have lost six of their last eight, including one in overtime and one in a shootout. They also have allowed hat tricks in each of their last two games.

The short-handed Flyers played without star center Peter Forsberg (groin), captain Keith Primeau (concussion), defenseman Eric Desjardins (shoulder) and forward Branko Radivojevic (ankle). Defenseman Kim Johnsson also left the game because of dizziness.


STANDINGS: Flyers - 68 points, 1st place, Atlantic Division. Rangers - 65 points, 2nd place, 3 PB, Atlantic Division.

TEAM LEADERS: Flyers - Simon Gagne, 34 goals; Forsberg, 47 assists and 62 points; Knuble, 62 PIM. Rangers - Jagr, 32 goals, 43 assists and 75 points; Darius Kasparaitis, 67 PIM.

SPECIAL TEAMS : Flyers - Power play: 18.4 percent (56 for 304), 11th in NHL. Penalty killing: 79.7 percent (235 for 295), 26th. Rangers - Power play: 15.8 percent (45 for 285), 23rd. Penalty killing: 84.5 percent (261 for 309), 8th.

GOALTENDERS: Flyers - Esche (12-5-2, 0 SO, 3.13 GAA); Niittymaki (18-8-6, 2, 2.92). Rangers - Lundqvist (21-7-5, 2, 2.10); Kevin Weekes (8-8-2, 0, 3.11).

SEASON SERIES: Tied, 1-1.

LAST MEETING: Jan. 5; Flyers 4-3. At New York, Gagne scored the game-winner seven seconds into overtime, handing the Rangers their third straight overtime loss.

ROAD/HOME RECORDS: Flyers - 16-5-3 on the road; Rangers - 16-6-4 at home.

When you add your images, could you please post one of Colton Orr, since that will probably be the only time we will see him tomorrow?

HENRIK GETS 1ST CRACK AT FLYERS

http://www.nypost.com/sports/rangers/61185.htm

This will be the first time the young phenom faces the Flyers. "It's a new team for me, I'll focus same way as I always do," said the two-time defensive player of the week (most recently a week ago).

"If we can win [tonight] I think we can put some pressure on them," said Lundqvist, who added he was looking forward to "a tough game and hopefully a good atmosphere in the Garden."

This has the makings of a playoff type game. The thing that worries me is the flyers are coming off a tough 6-0 loss and I expect them to have a strong game. Hopefully I am wrong and it is just a sign of things to come.

Lundqvist is 14-3-2 at home with a 1.56 goals-against average, and is 7-0-3 overall against Atlantic Division foes.

"7-0-3 against atlantic teams" might as well read "7-0-3 against teams who happen to not be The Flyers." Also, the Flyers are better on the road then at home. The Flyers road record is 16-5-3. The Rangers home record is 16-6-4. It's an incredibly evenly matched game. My guess is that it will come down to goaltending and that Henke will not dissappoint the MSG crowd.

Nice GDT. NY has to come out and play hard. They need to prove that they can beat the better teams, plus a win puts them 1 point away from first. Nedved needs to get checked alot and become a non-factor in this game. Lundqvist in net make me feel good, and Colton Orr will hopefully be a spectator.

Boy I am eager to bet some money on this game. A hockey game is never easy, a game like the one against Pittsburgh only happends 2-3 times per season and mostly because one teams play allot below their capacity.

Though besides games with Ottawa in them this will be one of the most loopsided affairs (in our favour) of this NHL season. I won't even be nervous when I go to bed tonight! (My bet is that we would beat the Flyers 9 out of 10 times)

I expect the Flyers to come out flying, trying to hit the Ranges out of the building. You can bet that Hitch got in their collective ear following that Tampa game. Injuries or not, this will be a good barometer game for the Rangers. I certainly hope that Renney dresses Hollweg tonight. He could really be a factor in a game like this. Especially in front of a home crowd.

I hope Hossa dresses over hollweg tonight. Hossa has played very well in his return to the lineup. Moore and Ortmeyer create a ton of chances down low and if Hossa can start putting them in the net that makes that line that much better. Lets not forget Hossa and Hollweg are both young players and if this team is rebuilding (they are rebuilt in my opinion) than you can't complain about ice time for either player. It's not like Hollweg is being benched but he is a victim of the numbers game. This team has depth.

To some extenent I agree with you and I htink Hossa should play, but this is a game where Hollweg HAS to play. I think Niemenen should sit and put Hossa instead of him. Niemenen hasnt neccesarily played poorly, but he doesnt do the energy job of running people over and getting the crowd into it like Hollweg does.

I'd like to see Niemo and Hossa sit in place of Hollweg and Orr.

I have a VERY strange feeling that if Orr is dressed tonight, he'll score a goal

Well I dont totally disagree that Niemo should sit for Hollweg, but the fact that Orr will score a goal is just crazy.

i also don't think niemo should sit either, he generates more scoring chances than hossa and plays a more aggitating game to try and get them off their game!
