First Place on the Line

The New York Rangers (10-7-1, 21 pts.), winners of 7 of their last 8, take on the Philadelphia Flyers (11-6, 22 pts.) tonight with first place in the Atlantic Division on the line. The Flyers will look to remain unbeaten at home this year (6-0) where they have outscored their opponents 22-7. For a complete review visit Yahoo! Sports.

...another big early season test for this team. I love the way they are playing heading into this game.

...I'm sure the Flyers are going to come out very physical tonight as pay back for the last time these two teams met up where the Rangers were the aggressors in their 2-0 win. I'm not too worried about the Rangers being pushed around with Avery, Orr, Strudwick and Hollweg in the lineup.

...should be another low scoring game with Ludqvist and Biron between the pipes. Obviously, we have the advantage here, but Biron has been solid this year, so we need to make should we have lots of traffic in front of the net.

...I'll have a recap after the game tonight.
