Where They Stand

BY DAVID KOLB, MSG.COM -- With the series tied 1-1, the Rangers travel to Philadelphia to face the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center for Game 3 of their first-round playoff series. The Flyers came back from an early 2-0 deficit to score four straight goals and win Game 2 at The Garden, 4-2. Playing once again without starting goalie Steve Mason (upper body), Ray Emery was the difference for the Flyers, settling down after allowing the two early tallies. After Game 3 Tuesday, the clubs don't play again until Friday before returning to The Garden Sunday for Game 5.

After being a plus-11 in the regular season, Ryan McDonagh is a minus-3 through the first two games of the series and also without a point. The Rangers need McDonagh to rebound and play at the high level he played at during the regular season. Meanwhile, despite only tallying one assist in two games, Flyers top offensive threat Claude Giroux is a plus-3 and doing the little things to help the Flyers win. Giroux is now a plus-16 all-time in 52 playoff games.
