As we know by now, tonight starts the latest chapter of the Flyers-Rangers rivalry. During the regular season, the two bitter competitors fought each other to a 2-2 tie in their season series. The home team won every time. If the Flyers want any chance to move on in the 2014 playoffs, they must win at Madison Square Garden.
Now we could talk for days about the history of these rivals and my prediction for the series (hint: it's not good), but I would rather tell you why it is important to hate the Rangers.
