When the Flyers returned from the Olympic break with a 7-3 loss to the San Jose Sharks, it was not the start fans were looking for. It also set up strong motivation for Saturday.
"We had a full week of practice to make sure we were ready for this, and I thought our effort was pretty crappy overall," Steve Mason said.
"I expect a big game against the Rangers. I really do," head coach Craig Berube said. "They're embarrassed. We're all embarrassed from it tonight."
The Flyers delivered on Berube's prediction on Saturday.
