The New York Rangers lost their road match to the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 in a way that is very different from their usual game. Their game was both shaky and inconsistent. They had the players to easily make the win happen and had the players ready to do it but in the end the collective effort was a fail and not up to par with their usual standards. Head coach Alain Vigneault said that he had faith that the team that they would win the coming matches.


“I’m very confident the other half will get done,” Vigneault said. “If I were a betting man, I’d bet that it was going to get done.”
 
The Rangers have a score of 33-25-3 as they head to the home game against Boston Bruins, who are at the head of the Atlantic Division so they will have to step up their game and find their sturdy skates back if they want a solid chance of winning the game.
 
The 1st period wasn’t that bad and they had a good physical game going. The Rangers didn’t hold back either and stood toe to toe against them. The Rangers were down 2 goals early in the match and they took the initiative to fill that gap and by second period they had that gap closed.
 
The Flyers are now 1 point shy of getting the 2nd place in the Metropolitan Division and the Washington Capitals are 2 points with their win. The Columbus Blue Jackets are also at 4 points.
 
Rangers captain Ryan Callahan said that they started off strong in the match but fell in the midst when the Flyers put up the pressure and the major reason they lost was because of an unreliable game and inconsistent performance.

“We had a strong second period but we didn’t carry that into the third and it was too inconsistent a game for us,” Callahan said. “It’s not what you like, especially this time of the year.”
