from Katie Strang of ESPNNewYork,
At a glance: The New York Rangers hold a 2-1 series lead but the Philadelphia Flyers have the chance to tie things up on home ice at Wells Fargo Center in Game 4 on Friday. With backup netminder Ray Emery in net for the first three games of the series, the Flyers get their regular starter back in Steve Mason. The 25-year-old netminder will make his first start of the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs, looking to erase some otherwise unpleasant playoff memories. His last trip to the post-season ended with his Columbus Blue Jackets being swept by the Detroit Red Wings during his rookie season back in 2009....
Said forward Wayne Simmonds:
"We're desperate. We want to win tonight. We have to win tonight."
Bold statement: Ok, it wasn’t quite Mark Messier-level of dramatic promises, but Flyers captain Claude Giroux still raised some eyebrows with his guarantee that Philly would win Game 4 and take the series back to new York with the two teams tied two apiece. Giroux proclaimed his confidence in the club following the team’s 4-1 loss to the Rangers in Game 3. It was the first game of the series in which Giroux has registered a shot on goal.
