The NHL Playoffs are underway as more action int Eastern Conference picked up tonight between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers. But while the game was a one-sided barn burner, there was a lot of physicality that will only further escalate as the series continues.
One such incident saw Claude Giroux take a head shot — or an almost head shot — to Rangers forward Dominic Moore.
We’ve seen the Flyers get physical in playoff series before and we’ve seen them both win games that way and lose complete control. They’re looking to take car of the Rangers as quickly as possible in the first round and it’s very clear that they will not be playing nice whatsoever when it comes to retaliation or just plain trying to get under New York’s skin.
