Playoff-pursuing Rangers start pivotal series with Flyers

Two dominant performances over the Philadelphia Flyers last month helped propel the New York Rangers into the playoff race for the fourth and final spot in the East Division.

But getting dominated by their biggest rival in their last game did not help the cause for the Rangers, who hope to get back on track when they host the fading Flyers on Thursday night for the first of a back-to-back set.

The Rangers (23-17-6, 52 points) gained points in three of four meetings (2-1-1) from the Flyers last month, including a 9-0 home win on March 17 when Mika Zibanejad had six points in the second period and an 8-3 win in Philadelphia on March 25 when Zibanejad scored three power-play goals and collected six points.
