These longtime rivals meet for the fourth of eight meetings this season. On Monday, the Flyers earned a 5-4 overtime win when winger Jakub Voracek knocked down Artemi Panarin‘s attempted chip pass through the neutral zone and took the puck from the blue line in alone on goalie Keith Kinkaid, faking him with the backhand before sliding the puck into the net on his forehand.
Entering this game, both teams sit below the cut line in the East Division in the race to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Boston currently occupies the fourth and final spot by one point over the Flyers, while the Rangers are six points behind the Bruins. This season, the top-four teams in each division qualify for the playoffs.
Rangers star forward Artemi Panarin returned to the lineup on Saturday in Boston, after a nine-game absence, recording an assist in 18:45 of ice time. Monday night at MSG, Panarin registered a team-high three points, including his first goal since Feb. 1
