Let’s get the actual hockey out of the way up top: The Rangers generated very little offense against the Philly D in this one, Michael Del Zotto handed the Flyers one goal (scored by former Blueshirt Blair Betts), and Henrik Lundqvist allowed one to another former Ranger, Nikolai Zherdev, on a bad-angle shot. Brandon Dubinsky would score the lone Rangers goal in the 4-1 loss.
Having said all that, most of the post-game chatter didn’t center around the Rangers’ inability to effectively forecheck. It centered around a Daniel Carcillo hit to the head of a falling Ruslan Fedotenko — one that was not penalized. If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the video, which, be forewarned, comes from the Philly broadcast.The Flyers Beat Up the Rangers Last Night
