Coming out of the All-Star break two points out of the playoffs, it was important for the Rangers to go down to Philadelphia and come back with two points.  The Flyers were on an eight game losing streak, but welcomed back Peter Forsberg, Mike Richards, Geoff Sanderson and Denis Gauthier to the line-up.  Surprisingly Tom Renney elected not to go with Colton Orr in the line-up, and it probably comes as no surprise that the Flyers tried to take advantage of the mismatch in physical play throughout the game.

But in the end it came down to a hard working shift by the fourth line and a garbage goal by Jason Krog, his first as a Ranger, that gave the visitors a much needed win.  New York started off well, unloading 17 shots on Robert Esche (making his first start since early January, and just the 14th of the season) in the first period, but failing to capitalize on five power plays in the period.  Shanahan hit two posts, and Jagr a cross-bar, but for all the offensive pressure, the Blueshirts again failed to capitalize.

The Rangers finally broke through in the first minute of the second period after Marcel Hossa hustled to beat out an icing, eventually allowing Jaromir Jagr to recover the puck behind the net, feed Karel Rachunek for a shot from the point that he redirected in for his 19th of the season.  As has been the case for so much of the season though, the Rangers allowed the Flyers to come right back when Joni Pitkanen finished off a nice series of passing on a delayed penalty to beat Lundqvist cleanly for the tying goal.

Overall it was by no means a classic game by New York, and they still are struggling to find that confidence on offense that will result in greater goal scoring.  The power play continued to struggle and the team missed on a could of opportunities to finish the Flyers off in the game.

TURNING POINT:
With the game tied 1-1, the Rangers were in serious danger of giving up another two points they needed against the worst team in the league.  The fourth line of Hollweg, Hall and Krog battled to forecheck and recover the puck and Jason Krog outmuscled Picard to get a second chance at the loose puck which just managed to make it over the goal line.

GAME NOTES:
Dan Girardi made his NHL debut, but misses a chance to play in his second straight AHL All-Star game after being signed as a free agent this past summer.  Girardi played on an AHL contract last year with the Wolf Pack, and was not drafted.  Aaron Ward played his 600th NHL game.

Jason Krog registered his second goal of the season, and first as a New York Ranger, while Jaromir Jagr tied Bobby Hull 14th all time with his 610th NHL goal.  On defense, Michal Rozsival was a -1 for the game, and is now back to Even for the first time since the October 12th.

Henrik Lundqvist finally got his 50th NHL victory, stopping 17 of the 18 shots he faced.  Martin Straka made it for the pre-game warm-up and played despite missing the past two days worth or practices due to a stomach flu.

The Rangers hit a post on the power play, but have now gone six games (0 for 22) without scoring on the man advantage.

WHO STOOD OUT:
For the second straight game, Jaromir Jagr looked more like his old self than the player who has struggled through the mid-part of the season.  Most evident was his commitment in puck battles and even a smart defensive play after he lost a faceoff in the defensive zone.

Petr Prucha was also a force on the forecheck, showing the energy and willingness to battle for the puck we haven't seen for much of the season.

Marek Malik, Dan Girardi and even Marian Hossa had some good shifts in the game

WHO DIDN'T:
After being a healthy scratch for the last three games, you might have expected Adam Hall to return with some jump, but aside from some hard work on the goal by Krog, the stint in the pressbox didn't seem to do anything for his game.  Adam Ward appeared to struggle at times, and maybe wasn't comfortable switching sides though he appeared to settle down a little as the game went on.

Henrik Lundqivst looked like he was fighting the puck a lot, not having a lot of success holding onto the puck when fired his way.  He didn't have to make many great saves, and was relatively well positioned for most shots by the Flyers who seldom went high on him.
