Flyers Rally Past Rangers, Even Series at 1-1

Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- On Sunday the Philadelphia Flyers did something they haven't done in years, win at Madison Square Garden. The Flyers beat the New York Rangers 4-2 to tie their series up at 1-1.

After trailing 2-0 in the first period, it was the Flyers who controlled the rest of the game.

It was the Flyers first win at Madison Square Garden since Feb. 20, 2011.

Backup goalie Ray Emery was filling in again for starter Steve Mason who also missed Game 1 with an upper body injury. Emery was sharp after the early struggles as he wound up making 31 saves overall.

"I tried to stay even-keeled, whether it's going well or you don't get off to the start you want," Emery said after the game. "I play with a system in there, and I just kind of rely on that. I've had leads before and I've been down before so it's kind of a consistent approach."

Defenseman Luke Schenn scored the go-ahead goal in the second period followed by a power-play goal by Wayne Simmonds.
