Flyers Take on Rangers in Game One of Eastern Conference Playoffs

Rangers out for blood, revenge and bragging rights

New York will meet Philly for the first time in 17 years in the playoffs when the series opens at MSG on Thursday night. These teams have been division rivals in the Patrick, Atlantic and now the Metropolitan division. Now, they take their rivalry to a new level when they get reacquainted in the post-season for the first time in almost two decades. How will this one play out? There are seven games to decide the answer.

Flyers thrilled, but not surprised to be in the playoffs

After an ugly start to the season that saw a coaching change, the Flyers are excited to be back in the playoffs, but are not surprised they are here. The guys in the locker room knew they had the talent to be here, it was just a matter of putting it together to make it happen. This is the 11th time these two teams meet in the post-season, with the Flyers winning six of the first 10 series. The matchup 17 years ago came in the Eastern Conference Finals, a Flyers win.

Even though Philly holds the playoff history advantage over the Rangers, New York has fared better than the Flyers at MSG this year. This is why we will bet 10 percent of our bankroll on the Rangers at home with the -1.5 (+200) spread on Thursday night over at Sportsbook.ag. Get your bets in now for Broad Street vs. Broadway.
