Rangers 2 Flyers 1
The Blueshirts are... Playoff Bound!!
Ryan Callahan tipped in a Derek Morris shot from the point for the eventual game-winner, but the 1st Ranger goal was a source of controversy. Less than a minute into the 1st period, Flyer goalie Martin Biron had made a save and was attempting to freeze the puck for a face-off; however, the ref lost sight of the puck, and watched while Markus Naslund and Callahan poked at Biron, eventually forcing him (and the puck!) into the net. Um... GOAL?!
Obviously, the Flyers were very unhappy with the goal (credited to Naslund). I found this quote at ["That's ridiculous, to be honest with you," Flyers coach John Stevens said. The goalie has to be allowed to make the save. You can't push the goalie in the net. I didn't like it. I didn't like it at all."]
New York named Henrik Lundqvist its MVP on Thursday, and after stopping 37 shots last night against the Flyers, we know why he is the King. ESPN kept showing Henrik going side to side across the crease to snare a shot with his catching glove that seemed headed for the open net.

The Rangers do not have a song for great saves, so this will have to do: NY Rangers Goal Celebration Song
The only mystery left to solve is if the boys will face Boston or Washington in the first round of the playoffs. Final game of the regular season on Sunday in Philly...
LET'S My Family Crest GO My Family Crest RANGERS!
