New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) – Cam Talbot stopped all 31 shots faced for
his first shutout of the season, and the New York Rangers claimed a 2-0 win
over the Philadelphia Flyers at Madison Square Garden.
Kevin Klein and Rick Nash supplied the necessary offense for the Rangers, who
have won eight consecutive regular-season games over their division rivals.
Steve Mason was largely solid, making 32 saves for the Flyers, who have
dropped three in a row after winning three straight.
The visitors failed to be buoyed by the last-minute addition of captain Claude
Giroux, who was originally ruled out with a lower-body injury suffered in
practice on Monday. Giroux felt well enough in warmups to gain a slot in the
lineup but couldn’t coax any scoring from his club.
