NHL Playoffs 2014: Brad Richards gets Rangers 2-0 lead in Game 5 (GIF)

The New York Rangers are starting to roll the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 5 of their first-round showdown and the crowd at Madison Square Garden is starting to really get into it. After Marc Staal started things off in the first period with a nice assisted goal, Brad Richards added to the fun in the second period and avenged a blown call that disallowed an earlier attempt.

On that attempt, the official prematurely blew the play dead thinking Flyers netminder Steve Mason had secured the puck — which he hadn’t. But while that goal was disallowed, Richards helped make everything okay a few minutes later on a goal that gives the Rangers a two score lead.
