Final: Rangers 4 - Flyers 1
Rangers Lead Series 2-1
- Dan Girardi (NYR) - 1 G, 1 A, 1 SOG, Plus-1
- Henrik Lundqvist (NYR) - 1 GA, 31 Saves, .969 SV%
- Martin St. Louis (NYR) - 1 G, 1 A, 2 SOG, Plus-1
- The Rangers got on the board just 3:54 into the game when Rick Nash's shot was gloved by Ray Emery but Emery couldn't hang on to it and Derek Stepan put home the rebound.
- New York went up 2-0 six minutes later when Martin St. Louis redirected Dan Girardi's shot from the point.
- It was St. Louis' second goal in the last two games doubling his total from the regular season with the Rangers.
- With just over two minutes remaining in the first period, the Flyers responded when Jake Voracek found the trailing Mark Streit who beat Henrik Lundqvist to cut the Rangers lead in half.
- The Flyers came out buzzing in the second period controlling the play for much of the first five minutes but 5:17 into the period, Girardi beat a screened Emery to give the Rangers a 3-1 lead.
- The third period provided a sweet moment for the only former Flyer on the Rangers, Dan Carcillo. Carcillo was whistled for a questionable hooking minor but fresh out of the box joined Brian Boyle on a 2-on-1 and redirected Boyle's pass through the five-hole of Emery to make it 4-1 Rangers and taunted some frustrated Flyers fans in the process.
- That would be the end of the night for Ray Emery. He stopped 16 of 20 shots fired his direction. Steve Mason came into the game in relief of Emery and stopped all three shots he saw.
- Philadelphia outshot New York 32-23 including 13-4 in the second period.
- The Flyers fired 80 shots tonight with 48 getting blocked or missed.
- The Rangers went 0-for-4 on the power play while the Flyers went 0-for-5 on the man-advantage.
- The Flyers are 6-7 in Game 3 since 2008.
- Philadelphia is 125-85 all-time in the playoffs on home ice.
