Nice play by Ghost to get that puck off towards the net. Good to have him back in the lineup.

Brayden with his 10th of the year! Good for 3rd in goals now. It's looking like a career year for him, he's picked a good time to have it.

they've stopped playing since the 10 minute mark of the 1st period 

Yeah Medvedev has to have his head on a swivel and stop getting caught flat footed.

They are going to have to be on their A game because Mason isn't playing well and it is showing.

Hate when I just tune in and it's 2-1 Rags. Hate the Rags more than  anything in that sentence

Yeah i hope that 1st weak goal by Mason doesn't come back to haunt them.

would be nice if Giroux could do something against the Rangers 

I would be nice if someone besides Ghost, Coots and Schenn were to show up. Hextall needs to do something to inject some skill to this lineup...like sitting RJ and calling up Straka or Martel. They need scoring and that is one thing the two kids are doing in the AHL.

RJ has been completely invisible please sit that bum.

Ghost makes some really good offensive plays...but his D needs improvement (he looked like a forward on the 2nd goal). Couturiers offence is really starting to come around. He's a lot more confident in what he does when he has the puck. 

The Rangers aren't much of a force this year, and the teams look fairly even. Philly may or may not make the playoffs, and I'm fine either way. But Hakstol sure has them playing a good way...just a matter of Hextall continuing to bring in the pieces to make a contender.

He was coming over to cover the guy who was coming in streaking uncontested and Medvedev did much of nothing to help get back and cover...and then Mase missed with his glove. That wasn't on Ghost...then none of the forward were anywhere near back checking...pulling a Scotty Hartnell............

Agree Simmonds' deal is a nice bang for the buck
