Rangers Lead Series 3-2
- Dominic Moore (NYR) - 1 G, 1 A, 2 SOG, Plus-1
- Henrik Lundqvist (NYR) - 2 GA, 24 Saves, .923 SV%
- Martin St. Louis (NYR) - 0 G, 1 A, 4 SOG, Plus-1
- The Rangers got on the board in the first period when the Rangers broke out on a 3-on-2 rush when Martin St. Louis dropped a pass to Marc Staal and Staal beat Steve Mason with a slap shot to make it 1-0 Rangers.
- There was a mad scramble for the puck in front of the Flyers net when Brad Richards put home the backhand shot to make it 2-0 Rangers just over eight minutes into the second period.
- The Flyers had a chance later in the second period when they worked the puck to Hal Gill as the trailer but Gill fired the puck wide.
- The Rangers picked up the puck following Gill's miss and got the puck into the Flyers zone where Braydon Coburn took it back for Philadelphia. Coburn passed it to Gill but the pass was in Gill's skates and he could not control it. Dominic Moore picked up the loose puck and skated in on Mason and scored to make it 3-0 Rangers.
- With time winding down in the second and the Flyers on the power play, Vinny Lecavalier blasted a slap shot from the point that hit Kevin Klein in front and beat Henrik Lundqvist to make it 3-1.
- The Flyers pulled Steve Mason with three minutes remaining in the third period for an extra-attacker. Philadelphia was able to work the puck around and got it to Claude Giroux who blasted a one-timer past Lundqvist to make it 3-2 with 1:29 remaining in the game.
- Still with the extra-attacker, the Flyers turned the puck over and the Rangers cleared the puck down the ice then won the race. Moore got it to Brian Boyle who scored on the empty-net to ice the Game 5 victory.
- The Flyers outshot the Rangers 26-22 and were not outshot in any period.
- The winning team has been outshot by the losing team in four of the five games in the series.
- New York has scored first in each of the last four games in the series.
- The Rangers were 0-for-3 on the power play while the Flyers were 1-for-5 on the man advantage.
- Philadelphia is 7-10 all-time in Game 6 when trailing a series 3-2. The last time they trailed 3-2 in a series was in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in 2011 against the Sabres when they won Game 6 in overtime thanks to a Ville Leino goal and then won Game 7 at home.
- The Flyers are 7-9 all-time in elimination games at the Wells Fargo Center.
