NEW YORK - The puck squirted through Hal Gill's legs and Dominic Moore spun the Flyers' brute around like a New York City subway turnstile before beating Steve Mason on a breakaway. As the 18,006 inside Madison Square Garden furiously waved their white rally towels to celebrate the Rangers' three-goal, second-period lead, Gill skated toward the Flyers' bench while fingers waggled at him 90 miles away in Philadelphia. Really, though, it was Braydon Coburn's panicked pass - serving as the grenade in Gill's skates - that perfectly summed up the Flyers' maddening, 4-2 loss to the Rangers yesterday afternoon.

NEW YORK - Trailing by two goals and searching for a spark, Craig Berube sent Brayden Schenn over the boards with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek on the second shift of the third period. For Giroux and Voracek, it marked the first time in months they had skated a regular shift with anyone other than Scott Hartnell. "I switched it up just to try to get something going," Berube reasoned postgame. "I'm not sure if I'll stick with that or not. I just made a switch there. " The switch seemed inevitable, just based on the Rangers' ability to shut down the Flyers' top line through the first four games and two periods.

Claude Giroux's struggles have drawn considerable attention. The Flyers captain hasn't scored a goal during the first four games of the opening Stanley Cup playoff series against the New York Rangers that is tied at two games apiece. Ending the drought will quiet the critics. Coach Craig Berube thinks that Giroux has been affected by the criticism. "I think he can be more patient," Berube said after practice Saturday and before the Flyers departed for New York and Game 5 at noon Sunday at Madison Square Garden.

THE FLYERS unearthed Kate Smith from the grave for another rendition of "God Bless America" last night, because, well, that is what they do when it is must-win. When the final horn sounded, practically blowing the roof off the Wells Fargo Center, the Flyers high-fived and retreated to their dressing room. Inside, Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" was blasting - the same postgame victory anthem that carried the Flyers within two wins of a Stanley Cup in 2010. The Rangers gave enough last night.

Give the Flyers credit for gutting out a tense, 2-1 win over the speedier New York Rangers on Friday. Goalie Steve Mason, rust-free despite getting his first start in 13 days, was better than anyone could have expected after the long layoff, and the special teams were superb, enabling the Flyers to even the intriguing series at two games apiece. Now, as the series switches from Broad Street to Broadway on Sunday afternoon, the Flyers shouldn't get caught up in the euphoria of their Game 4 win. Fact is, they need to play much better than they did Friday if they are going to win what has turned into a three-game tug-of-war.

Injuries have become regional in hockey. You have your uppers and your lowers, and no one wants to zoom in on the exact location for fear the opponent will target that weakness. Goaltender Steve Mason was a spectator for all but 7 minutes, 15 seconds during the first three games of the Flyers' first-round playoff series against the New York Rangers because of an upper-body injury. Even though no one would say so, it was pretty safe to assume that something was wrong with Mason's head after he was the helpless victim of a vicious two-player collision between Pittsburgh's Jayson Megna and his own teammate, Andrew MacDonald, in the Flyers' penultimate game of the regular season.

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.

This article has been corrected. An earlier version stated that Dave Poulin was the only captain to lead the Flyers to multiple appearances in the Stanley Cup Finals. He was the last one, not the only one. IT IS CLEAR through three games that the Rangers intend to bump, harass, slash and aggravate Flyers captain Claude Giroux every chance they get. So, how are they doing? Last night marked the 13th consecutive game Giroux did not score a goal against the Rangers, who took a 2-1 series lead with a suffocating 4-1 victory.

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.

Mark Streit, the Flyers' best offensive defenseman, had no points and just one shot on goal through his first two games against the Rangers. No one talks about this. No one really should talk about this, at least not to suggest Streit has been doing something wrong. He hasn't, really. He shoots the puck harder and more accurately than any of the Flyers' other defensemen, skates as well as any of them, can move the puck with as much deftness as any of them. Still, he is a defenseman.
