To get to this point, the Flyers needed to win a pivotal Game 6 at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night. Wayne Simmonds’ netted his first career playoff hat trick while Erik Gustafsson scored in his first game of the series and Claude Giroux put home an empty-netter to give the Flyers a 5-2 victory.
That was last night and now the attention shifts to tonight.
“I think we just take the positives from this game and keep it rolling,” said Simmonds following Game 6. “We've got the momentum, we've got to put our foot on the pedal and we've just got to keep pushing forward.”
It is the best of one for the Flyers and Rangers. Despite the win the convincing win last night there are still areas the Flyers need to sure up for Game 7.
