Rangers Vs. Flyers Final Score: New York Clinches Top Seed In East With 5-3 Win

The New York Rangers clinched the the Atlantic Division and the best record in the Eastern Conference with a 5-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night. Ilya Bryzgalov gave up four goals in the first period, giving the Rangers a 4-0 lead going into the second period that the Flyers could not overcome.

The win also completed a 6-0 season sweep by the Rangers over the Flyers. Ryan McDonagh, Brian Boyle, Artem Anisimov, Ryan Callahan and Marian Gaborik all scored on the night. Gaborik added an assist to earn top-star honors. Henrik Lundqvist faced 40 shots on the night, and turned back all but three.

Across the ice, Bryzgalov struggled after sitting the Flyers' last three games with a foot injury. He let in five goals off of just 24 shots faced. Though rust can be blamed in part, Philadelphia has to be at least somewhat concerned with the Playoffs coming up. Jakub Voracek, Wayne Simmonds and Andreas Lilja all scored on the night. Claude Giroux recorded an assist on all three tallies.
