The New York Rangers hope to ride their home dominance of the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference quarte Antworten

The New York Rangers hope to ride their home dominance of the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals when the teams get together for Game 2 on Sunday afternoon. Hockey Jerseys China . Catch the game on TSN starting at Noon et/9am pt. The Rangers posted a 4-1 win in the opener of the best-of-seven series Thursday at Madison Square Garden, giving New York nine straight wins against Philadelphia at home. The clubs last loss in this series at MSG was back on Feb. 20, 2011. The Flyers hope to break their slump in Manhattan on Sunday before the series heads to Philadelphia for Games 3 and 4. The Rangers were 0-2 in Philly this season and have lost in their past three trips to the City of Brotherly Love. New York controlled play for most of Game 1, but the score was tied 1-1 heading into the third period. The Rangers, however, seized a golden opportunity when Philadelphias Jason Akeson drew blood on a high stick against Carl Hagelin, resulting in a four-minute power play for the home team at 7:35 of the final period. The Blueshirts scored twice off Akesons double minor, with Brad Richards scoring at 8:22 and Derek Stepan converting just 47 second later. Richards posted a goal and two assists while Hagelin, Stepan and Mats Zuccarello all lit the lamp for New York, which also got two assists from late-season addition Martin St. Louis. Henrik Lundqvist, meanwhile, only needed to stop 14 shots to pick up the win. "I think we controlled play, didnt give them much," said Richards. "There was no other thought than to keep controlling the puck and keep trying to get it behind them. In a series sometimes having the puck and wearing them out can benefit you later in the game." With a three-point performance in Game 1, Richards already has tripled his production from last seasons postseason when he had one assist in 10 games. Andrew MacDonald scored the only goal of the game for the Flyers, who played with Ray Emery in goal due to an injury to No. 1 option Steve Mason. Emery will get the call again in Game 2 with Cal Heeter serving as the backup, as Mason isnt ready to return from an upper-body injury suffered April 12 against Pittsburgh. Emery played well in defeat on Thursday, stopping 32-of-36 shots. The veteran netminder fell to 20-16 in his postseason career. "Weve got to win one in here and wed like to have that one but well be refocused for the next one," said Emery. "Were confident that if we play the way that we can play we can take them." Philadelphia head coach Craig Berube is looking for a much better effort from his top line in Game 2, as Claude Giroux, Scott Hartnell and Jakub Voracek combined for just two shots in the loss. Hartnell registered both shots and also assisted on MacDonalds goal "They didnt produce," Berube said. "They didnt shoot pucks, they didnt get shots on net, didnt get an attack." Giroux, who finished third in the NHL with 86 points this season, only had two assists in four regular-season games against the Rangers in 2013-14. This series marks the first time these rivals are meeting in the playoffs since the 1997 Eastern Conference Finals, which the Flyers won in five games. Philadelphia has won six of the 10 playoff series against the Rangers, including three straight. Game 3 is scheduled for Tuesday in Philadelphia, with the four meeting set for Friday.

Is it going to go your way every time? No. But you choose your attitude and how you perform and how hard you dig in." Nearly four years to the day of the 2010 gold medal match in Vancouver, his team dug in with its best effort of these Olympics, snuffing out the high-powered Americans for another opportunity at gold.

Ferrer will next face fellow Spaniard Nicolas Almagro, the fourth seed, who defeated Jeremy Chardy of France 7-6 (7), 6-3 in another quarterfinal match. . That time around, the cage is as much a part of baseballs daily routine as a beer and a hotdog is to a fan in the stands. Coaches, scouts, broadcasters and other media hover, tossing verbal barbs, telling stories and sharing laughs. Occasionally, especially in spring when the atmosphere is relatively laid back, the list of invited guests expands and on this day, Gibbons welcomed two men strongly influential in his life.( - David Price has been magnificent over his career at Fenway Park. The Tampa Bay Rays hope that trend will continue on Saturday when they try to wrestle home-field advantage away from the Boston Red Sox in Game 2 of the American League Division Series. After winning 20 games and the AL Cy Young Award a year ago, Price endured an inconsistent 2013 and ended the year 10-8 with a 3.33 ERA. The left-hander seemed to get better as the season wore on, though, and pitched to a 2.55 ERA over his final five starts. That was certainly the case on Monday when he earned a complete-game win in Texas in a one-game playoff to secure the second wild card spot for the Rays. "During the course of the game, I kept talking to (catcher Jose Molina), and he said he was getting better and better, and I could see that from the side," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "There was no way I wanted to take him out. He was outstanding. I thought his stuff kept getting better." Despite his up-and-down campaign, Price still thrived in Beantown, where he went 2-0 in three starts at Fenway and allowed just three runs in 22 1/3 innings. Hes been terrific over the course of his career there, going 6-1 with a 1.88 ERA in 10 starts. "Its just pitching against the Red Sox or pitching against a team like the Yankees, you know the history behind those franchises," Price said. "You know what theyre capable of doing. Every single year, year in, year out, they are, theyre going to be a postseason team, and you know youre going to have to come with your best. If you come with your "B" game, "B-plus" game, you have a pretty good chance to lose. "Pitching in this ballpark, pitching against that team it makes you want it just a little bit more," Price said. Tampa will need another solid effort from Price if they want to even this best-of-five set at a game apiece. In Fridays Game 1, Boston used 7 2/3 terrific innings from Jon Lester and an offensive barrage to gain the early upper hand in the American League Division Series, as it cruised to a 12-2 win. Lester (1-0) gave up solo homers to Sean Rodriguez and Ben Zobrist that stakedd Tampa Bay to an initial 2-0 edge, but yielded just one other hit and three walks before exiting to a rousing ovation with two outs in the eighth. Discount Hockey Jerseys. The left-hander received ample support from his teammates, with the AL East champs shelling Rays starter Matt Moore (0-1) for eight runs -- seven earned -- and eight hits in the 17-game winners 4 1/3 innings of work. Teams have gone up 2-0 in the ALDS 22 times and advanced in 18 of them. Every Boston regular collected at least one hit, with Jarrod Saltalamacchia finishing 2-for-4 with three RBI, Shane Victorino driving in two runs on a 3- for-4 day and Jonny Gomes producing a two-run double in the rout. "Weve done that all year long," said Victorino. "Its a testament to what we do every day. We grind out at-bats. We play 27 outs." Rookie Wil Myers misplayed a fly ball off the bat of David Ortiz in the fourth inning to open the floodgates for Boston, which scored five times in the frame. "Its one of those ones I saw went up," Myers said. "I waved Desmond off. I called the ball myself. I saw it up there. Its loud out there, so a hand motion, I had the ball, I was under the ball, and I saw Des out of the corner of my eye and backed off. It was a loud crowd today. That was totally my fault. I should have taken more charge out there and caught the ball." Tampa Bays four hits in Game 1 marked its fewest in a playoff game since being held to two hits in Game 2 of the 2010 ALDS versus Texas. On Saturday Boston will hand the ball to righty John Lackey, who was tremendous in his first season back following Tommy John surgery. Lackey was only 10-13, but pitched to a 3.52 ERA and walked just 1.9 per nine innings while throwing 67 percent strikes, a career high. "Im going to be emotional," Lackey said. "Im going to be fired up." Lackey is no stranger to the postseason, as he is 3-4 with a 3.12 ERA in 14 outings (12 starts). Tampa actually beat the Red Sox in seven games back in 2008 to advance to the World Series in the only other postseason series between the clubs. This series will shift to Tropicana Field for Game 3 on Monday. ' ' '
