Callahan’s Hat Trick Leads Rangers Over Flyers
Ryan Callahan scored three goals, helping the New York Rangers continue their dominance over Philadelphia with a 5-2 victory on Saturday.
Marian Gaborik and Artem Anisimov also had goals for the Eastern Conference-leading Rangers, who’ve won seven straight against the Flyers.
It was a rare display on special teams that catapulted the Rangers to their second victory over Philadelphia in seven days. New York had a season-high three goals on the power play and improved to 5-0 against the Flyers this season, including a 3-2 win in the Winter Classic.
The Rangers increased their lead to six points over the Flyers in the Atlantic Division and also have two games in hand.
Claude Giroux and Wayne Simmonds had Philadelphia’s goals. The Flyers have lost four of five.
