But that doesn't mean they have not met with the playoffs on the line. On April 11th, 2010, the Flyers and Rangers met in Game 82 with the winner heading to the playoffs and the loser heading home. The Rangers took a 1-0 lead just 3:27 into the first period when Jody Shelley beat Brian Boucher.
Henrik Lundqvist was a stalwart for the Rangers for most of the game until 6:54 into the third period when Matt Carle tied the game on the power play. It would go to overtime and, ultimately, a shootout where the Flyers struggled mightily.
But this day was a treat.
