The Philadelphia Flyers needed a win against the New York Rangers in Game 4 to even the series up and avoid going into a 3-1 hole and that’s exactly what happened. In front of the home crowd in Philly, the Flyers came out and shutdown the Rangers after falling behind early in the game.
New York went up early thanks to Dominic Moore but the Flyers struck back with two unanswered goals and that was enough for goalie Steve Mason to take his team the rest of the way and stave off a devastating Game 4 loss.
The hits were also coming left and right form both sides, as the Rangers grew more and more frustrated with letting the game slip away from them the deeper into things we got.
But Steve Mason was an ace in net for the Flyers on Friday and managed to come away with his first ever playoff win in the biggest spot of his career.
While they hardly won the series in game 4, the Flyers did reassert their presence and are now in a perfect situation to win two out of the next three. It’s a best-of-three series now and while the Rangers showed they can win two out of three, the Flyers showed that they’re not going to just roll over without putting up a fight first.
