[VIDEO] Rangers Take Game 7; Penguins Next
Plenty of scoring opportunities were fended off by Philadelphia’s Steve Mason, but two Rangers were able to find the net in New York’s 2-1 win over the Flyers in Game 7 at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.
Dan Carcillo scored first, 3:06 into the second period, before Benoit Pouliot beat Mason at the 11:46 mark.
Henrik Lundqvist stopped 26 of 27 shot on goal. Jason Akeson had the Flyers lone tally.
Mason ended with 31 saves.
The Rangers, who’ve never lost a Game 7 at home, now travel to Pittsburgh to open a series with the Penguins on Friday night.
It’s a pretty quick turnaround of New York, who will be playing their third game in four nights. Pittsburgh’s series with Columbus ended on Monday, after going six games.
