The Rangers and the Flyers are two teams that have somewhat switched places in the standings over the course of the last year. The Flyers are fighting for the final wild card playoff spot and the Rangers have mathematically eliminated from the playoffs for some time now.
This isn’t quite the DEFCON levels of 2010, where the Flyers topped the Rangers in a play-in game (in a shootout no less), as the Flyers could still get in if Florida does anything besides getting wins on Saturday (7 pm vs. Buffalo) and Sunday (7:30 pm at Boston). Now if the Flyers do in fact lose in regulation to New York, they’ll risk potentially having to go to an 83rd game if the following tiebreakers (points, ROW & goal differential) end up the same for both clubs.
The Flyers are not even a full year removed from picking Nolan Patrick with the second overall pick in the 2017 NHL entry draft and they are fighting to clinch a playoff spot for the first time since the 2015-2016 season. The Rangers on the other hand are at the end of the life cycle of this team.
Lundqvist, as well as the rest of the core of the Rangers is getting old and management understands this as they have already started the rebuild process by trading away former captain Ryan McDonagh. The Rangers are eliminated from this years playoffs race so the main focus of this game will be on the Claude Giroux and the Flyers.
