PITTSBURGH - In the postgame showers, Hal Gill, the hulking Flyers defenseman who played Saturday for the first time since Dec. 21, was singing "New York, New York. " The Flyers are headed to Broadway. Continuing their uncanny dominance in Pittsburgh, the Flyers scored a wild, 4-3 overtime win over the Penguins at the Consol Energy Center on Saturday afternoon, ensuring that they will face the New York Rangers in the playoffs. But the victory, which clinched third place in the Metropolitan Division, was tempered by an injury to goalie Steve Mason, who left the game after the second period with what the Flyers called an upper-body injury.

It was a silly, impulsive mistake, one made all the sillier because Scott Hartnell committed it in a game that meant so little. He'd gotten himself in a tussle with the Carolina Hurricanes' Brett Bellemore in the third period Sunday. The Flyers had clinched a playoff spot, knew that their first-round opponent would be the New York Rangers, and understood they had nothing to gain and much to lose in their regular-season finale. They were on their way to a 6-5 loss to the Hurricanes, and, well, at least there were 10 goals and a shootout to entertain everyone.

The Flyers are cautiously optimistic that goalie Steve Mason will play in the playoff opener Thursday night against the New York Rangers. "I feel he will," general manager Paul Holmgren said Monday afternoon, "but you never know. We'll see how he feels in the morning" Tuesday. Mason was hurt in Pittsburgh on Saturday. The Penguins' Jayson Megna knocked Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald into the 6-foot-4 goalie, snapping his head and neck back before he fell to the ice. Mason remained in the game for the final 3 minutes, 33 seconds of the second period before he was replaced by Ray Emery.

The New York Rangers have added veteran defenseman Roman Hamrlik. New York claimed the 38-year-old Hamrlik off waivers from the Washington Capitals one day after Marc Staal was struck in the right eye by a deflected puck in the third period of the Rangers' 4-2 win over the Flyers. Staal will be out indefinitely, but doctors said he would make a full recovery. The defenseman was not wearing a visor. Hamrlik, the active leader with 1,383 NHL games played, is in the final season of a two-year, $7 million contract.

PITTSBURGH - The Flyers know the numbers: They have lost eight straight to the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden since 2011. "It's a good thing we are due," winger Jake Voracek said after scoring two goals, including his career-high 23d of the season, in the Flyers' 4-3 overtime win Saturday in Pittsburgh. The victory means the Flyers will face the Rangers in the first round of the playoffs. "It's going to be an exciting series. . . . There are going to be a lot of emotions there.

Top-flight college hockey doesn't exist in the Philadelphia area. Yet, the new award presented to the NCAA's top goaltender is named for a Montgomery County native, one whose geographical disadvantage was overcome by a will as unyielding as his glove hand. Mike Richter, back in Philadelphia on Friday to present the first Mike Richter Award to UMass Lowell goalie Connor Hellebuyck on a Frozen Four off-day, was as much a hockey anomaly as his Flourtown roots. He preferred orange juice and vegetables to beer and sandwiches.

PITTSBURGH - Flyers and Lightning fans were playfully chanting back and forth during Thursday's game in Tampa Bay, Fla., trying to out-insult each other. At one point, Lightning fans started a mocking chant: "1975! 1975!" That, of course, was the last time the Flyers won the Stanley Cup. The drought figures to be extended, because even if the Flyers get past the Rangers in the opening round, and even if they win in the second round against (in all probability) the Penguins, they are no match for the Bruins.

If the regular season is a barometer, the Flyers and New York Rangers will have a tight-checking, low-scoring series when they meet in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Amtrak series starts with games Thursday and Easter Sunday in New York. The Rangers have the stronger defense, the Flyers have the better attack. "We don't have to worry as much about them as ourselves," Flyers winger Matt Read said after scoring his 22d goal in a season-ending 6-5 shootout loss to Carolina on Sunday.

SUNRISE, Fla. - The team that had the worst start in franchise history clinched a playoff berth Tuesday night at the BB&T Center. Captain Claude Giroux, who guaranteed the Flyers would make the playoffs when they had a 1-7 record, scored a pair of goals, sparking a 5-2 victory over lowly Florida and assuring that they will be playing in the postseason after being spectators last year. "I just believed in this team," Giroux said of his early-season prediction. "Last year, not making the playoffs was unacceptable.

Never mind that Luke Schenn was traded for James van Riemsdyk, a winger who had a breakout season in Toronto. Schenn was struggling earlier this season, so he was benched. Never mind that Vinny Lecavalier has credentials that may get him into the Hall of Fame someday. The veteran center wasn't producing as a second-line left winger, so he was dropped to center on the fourth line late in the season. Never mind that the Flyers traded popular center Max Talbot to Colorado for Steve Downie.

The Flyers, their No. 1 goalie injured and unable to play in Game 1 Thursday against the New York Rangers, put on a brave face. Steve Mason, injured Saturday in Pittsburgh, is out. Backup Ray Emery is in. "I don't think our team feels like it's a blow at all," Flyers coach Craig Berube said after Wednesday's practice in Voorhees. "Listen. There's injuries. Things happen. You're not always 100 percent. Good teams find a way to get it done. " In his only appearance against the Rangers this season, Emery dropped a 4-1 decision in New York on Jan. 12. Lifetime, he is 7-2 with a 1.87 goals-against average and .936 save percentage against New York.

NEW YORK - The best goaltender on the ice last night wore orange and black. There's your silver lining in a gruesome, 4-1 Game 1 loss to the New York Rangers, a defeat that seemed to suggest that this nine-game losing streak in Madison Square Garden is more about personnel than coincidence. Ray Emery was supposed to be the big difference between the teams. They had an Olympic goalie. You had a rebuilt 31-year-old backup between your pipes. But Ray was not the problem. The problem was that besides him, there wasn't a single player wearing that jersey who was better than the player in the same role wearing blue.

NEW YORK - For the Flyers, the magnitude of the games has changed, but not the results at Madison Square Garden. It continues to be their Garden of Evil. They managed just 15 shots and dropped their ninth straight at the World's Most Famous Arena, opening the playoffs with a 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Thursday night. Brad Richards and Derek Stepan scored power-play goals 47 seconds apart in the third period, snapping a 1-1 tie and keying the Rangers' hard-earned win. The Rangers got a four-minute power play because of a double minor against rookie winger Jason Akeson, who played just one regular-season game and was making his NHL playoff debut.

NEW YORK - This was not how Jason Akeson had envisioned his Stanley Cup debut would end up - in frustration. He was the center of attention, drew his share of reporters, and while painful, he went through the play that turned around the Flyers' opening playoff game in a negative way. Akeson's third-period double minor for high sticking led to two power play goals as the New York Rangers opened their first-round series with a 4-1 win over the Flyers...

There is intrigue surrounding the status of Flyers goalie Steve Mason for Thursday's playoff opener against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Mason is trying to overcome an unspecified upper-body injury; he is believed to have whiplash symptoms after being in a collision in Pittsburgh on Saturday. The goalie practiced briefly with the team Tuesday in Voorhees. A decision on Mason's availability for Game 1 is expected to be made after Wednesday's practice, said general manager Paul Holmgren, who would not say whether Mason had a concussion.

SCOTT HARTNELL said he is "not a Las Vegas oddsmaker," but teammate Kimmo Timonen has a pretty good idea where the money will be flowing in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Hint: Not many will be giving the Flyers much of a chance against the New York Rangers. "No question, they're going to be favorites," Timonen said. "They're really quick. They're smart. They're obviously a really good team. I won't say it's going to be easy, it's going to be tough games. But I'm really looking forward to it. " Two X-factors - the fact that the Flyers haven't won in eight tries at Madison Square Garden since Feb. 20, 2011, and Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist - likely will be swinging the action from Broad Street to Broadway.
