Flyers Bounce back with 4-2 win over Rangers

Bouncing back has been a theme all season in Philadelphia, where the Flyers have embraced adversity and turned it into a strength. Their atrocious 1-7-0 start and the dismissal of coach Peter Laviolette were just minor detours on the way to a 94-point season. Captain Claude Giroux went goalless for the first month of the season, but turned his season around and became the NHL’s most productive player of the second half. Philly had the third-best record in the Eastern Conference when trailing after two periods and they scored the second-most third-period goals in the league. Really, bad starts don’t seem to bother the Flyers all that much. Game 2 of their series against the Rangers proved that on Sunday afternoon.
