The Flyers hit the ice on Wednesday night for the first of the final two preseason games that will take place this season. In the five games so far, they have a 3-1-1 record.
But Monday's game, to this point, has been the most telling, with the majority of the Flyers final roster taking on the majority of the Rangers final roster. It was a chance to see how the Flyers could stack up against one of the league's best.
An admirable effort by several players fell short. The Flyers will get two more chances to show how ready they are for the regular season, and if Monday was any indication, there is plenty left to prove.
