NEW YORK - Let's dispense with the time-tattered banalities at the start. If the Flyers lose this first-round series - and after the Rangers' 4-2 victory in Sunday's Game 5, it's likely they will - it won't be because they didn't play with enough effort or tenacity or aggressiveness. It won't be because their goaltending was somewhere between squirrelly and god-awful, or because their coach had them so unprepared for the playoffs that the team captain was willing to spearhead a locker-room mutiny for the sake of a change behind the bench.

During the Flyers wins in this opening Stanley Cup playoff series with the New York Rangers, now tied at two games apiece, some of the biggest plays have been made by two forwards, one expected and one who continues to be a surprise. Jake Voracek was third on the team with 23 goals, so his success vs. the Rangers is no surprise. Jason Akeson, meanwhile played one regular-season game, so few expected him to have such an impact. Voracek broke a 1-1 tie with his second goal of the series, and Akeson added an assist on the first goal and an unofficial one on the second as the Flyers defeated the New York Rangers, 2-1, Friday at the Wells Fargo Center.

Flyers center Claude Giroux is 2 for 2 in the predictions business. Coincidentally, the divisional semifinals is tied at two games apiece after the Flyers rallied past the New York Rangers, 2-1, at the ear-splitting Wells Fargo Center on Friday night. Steve Mason, making his first start in 13 days after sustaining an injury late in the regular season, showed no rust as he made 37 saves and keyed the clutch victory. Mason made one of his biggest stops with just over a minute left, denying Derick Brassard after a wild scramble out front.

Observations heading into Game 4 at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday, with the New York Rangers holding a two-games-to-one series lead over the Flyers. Much has been made about Claude Giroux's struggles in the first three games of the playoffs, but the fact is, the intense center has been one of the Flyers' best players. To be fair, Giroux - whom the Rangers are double-teaming and hitting at every opportunity _ has been one of the Flyers' best players. He has drawn penalties, won a series-high 61.1 percent of his face-offs, collected a pair of assists, and posted a team-best plus-3 rating.

The Flyers' power play struggled at the Wells Fargo Center all season, and that puzzling pattern continued in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers. While on the power play, they managed just four shots on goal, had 10 shots blocked, and went 0 for 5. That will have to change if the Flyers are going to even the series - which the Rangers lead, two games to one - on Friday at the Wells Fargo Center. Coach Craig Berube was satisfied with the amount of zone time the Flyers had during their power plays, but not with the puck movement.

RULE NO. 76: "No excuses. Play like a champion. " For Claude Giroux, that principle from the "Wedding Crashers" rule book is not just a saying, but a way of life. For four games this season, and three more in the playoffs, Giroux has barely been able to wake up without a Rangers defender breathing all over him. No shift has gone unnoticed. No inch of ice has gone uncontested. The Flyers' captain has not scored against New York in more than 2 years, or 13 straight games.

Looking to boost the offense, Flyers coach Craig Berube made significant changes for Game 3 Tuesday night against the New York Rangers at the Wells Fargo Center. Vinny Lecavalier moved from fourth-line to second-line center, and Brayden Schenn shifted from center to left wing on the second unit. The move pushed Michael Raffl from second-line left wing to fourth-line center. Berube said he liked the way Lecavalier played when he moved to the second line in Sunday's third period.

Because the Flyers will get the last line change at home, the top unit of Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek, and Scott Hartnell won't face the New York Rangers' standout defensive pairing - Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi - as often when the series switches to the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night. "They'll get those guys out there enough," Flyers coach Craig Berube said of the Rangers duo. Berube said the Flyers' No. 1 line "just has to keep competing the way they are. I thought they did a better job last game being competitive, supporting each other better, using their speed.

NEW YORK - Typically, NHL players playing their fourth career game do not get much attention, nor is there much pressure on them to make a significant impact. That is not the case for Jason Akeson. With 14:15 left in the second period yesterday, and the Flyers trailing the Rangers by a goal, the rookie came up big. After Vinny Lecavalier's shot from the point was brushed aside, and Brayden Schenn deflected it to the left of the goal, Akeson found himself all alone with the puck, and an open net. Akeson buried the shot, tying the game at 2 and giving the Flyers some tangible confidence for the rest of the game, a 4-2 win that evened their series against the Rangers.

BEFORE Andrew MacDonald was even traded to the Flyers on March 4, he identified Philadelphia as a destination he wanted to look into if he ever made it to free agency in July. Turns out, his 6-week peek at life in a Flyers uniform was enough to make him want to stay here for the considerable future. On the eve of the Stanley Cup playoffs, MacDonald and the Flyers agreed to a whopping 6-year, $30 million contract extension yesterday. In total terms, the deal will make him the 21st-highest paid defenseman in the NHL, according to CapGeek.com.
