- Tuesday's win was a lot like a John Tortorella game because of all the blocked shots and solid defense. This was also a Tortorella type of game, physical, blocked shots, lack of scoring and a mostly dreadful power play.
- The Rangers didn't take advantage in a first period where they carried the play and had a lot of chances to go up 2-0 or 2-1 and go into the second with the lead. They didn't and it cost them. They didn't execute well enough in the final 40 minutes and didn't get enough from their top players.
- The difference in the game comes down to special teams. The Flyers scored on their PP and the Rangers didn't.
- This continues to follow the pattern of the teams alternating wins and I believe that will be the case heading to game seven. Steve Mason was pretty good for the Flyers tonight and they surely have to feel more confident in net with him than Ray Emery. That said, I would have guessed, based on his past, that Emery would have been the one throwing punches around the crease and not Mason. I don't think they forced Mason into making as many tough saves as he should have had to make in his first game game.
- The Rangers were defeated by the Philadelphia Flyers, 2-1, tonight in Game 4 of the Metropolitan Division Semifinals at Wells Fargo Center. The best-of-seven series is tied at two games apiece.
- Five of the Blueshirts’ last six playoff series have been tied 2-2 after the first four games. The Rangers have won six of the last nine playoff series in which they were tied at two games apiece after Game 4, dating back to the Patrick Division Semifinals vs. New Jersey in 1992.
- The Blueshirts allowed two goals or fewer for the 25th time in their last 38 regular season and playoff road games this season, and the ninth time in their last 12 overall road games. New York has allowed 78 goals in those 38 contests (2.05 goals against per game). The Rangers have held the Flyers to two goals or less in 17 of their last 21 regular season and playoff matchups, dating back to Mar. 6, 2011.
- New York outshot Philadelphia, 38-25, in the contest. The Rangers had more shots than the Flyers in each period of the game, including a 16-6 advantage in the first period. The Blueshirts have outshot the Flyers, 130-97, in the first four games of the series, and have recorded more shots than Philadelphia in nine of the 12 periods.

The Rangers goaltender started his 70th consecutive playoff game for the Rangers, dating back to Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals on Apr. 26, 2006 vs. New Jersey. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it is the seventh time in league history that a goaltender has started at least 70 consecutive playoff games for one team (Martin Brodeur – New Jersey, Patrick Roy – Montreal and Colorado, Marc-Andre Fleury – Pittsburgh, Ed Belfour – Dallas, Jacques Plante – Montreal). Lundqvist is six games shy of passing Mike Richter for the franchise record in all-time playoff appearances.

- Brian Boyle recorded an assist, posted a plus-one rating, was credited with one hit and blocked three shots in 10:57 of ice time.

The Rangers forward has tallied a point in four of his last six playoff contests (one goal, three assists), dating back to Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on May 23, 2013 vs. Boston. Boyle leads the team in hits (16) in the playoffs.
