Rangers top Flyers 2-1 for 2nd straight win
NY RANGERS 2, PHILADELPHIA 1

By IRA PODELL
AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Rangers already had depth problems
at forward before captain Ryan Callahan left the ice with his
left arm dangling.



The injury didn't hurt the Rangers in the short term as New York
held on for a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on
Tuesday night, but it could become troublesome if Callahan is
sidelined for any length of time in this already shortened NHL
season.



Callahan scored the eventual game-winning goal during a
second-period power play and then got hurt in the third during a
post-whistle scrum with Philadelphia's Max Talbot, who dragged
Callahan to the ice by his arm.



There was no immediate medical update regarding Callahan after
the game.



The Rangers managed to kill two late Philadelphia power plays
despite Callahan's absence. New York turned aside five of six
Flyers advantages, including a 5-on-3 edge in the second period.



"Cally does everything so well - the little plays, especially
blocking shots," said defenseman Michael Del Zotto, who had a
goal and an assist. "The guys did a good job of gathering
ourselves after he went off with that injury."



The Rangers have largely relied on their top line of Rick Nash,
Brad Richards, and Marian Gaborik to provide most of the
offense. They sought outside help, and thought veteran Jason
Arnott would join the mix, but a failed physical wrecked those
plans.



Where secondary scoring will come from now remains to be seen.



Two goals were enough this time, largely because Henrik
Lundqvist was sharp in making 26 saves. New York (3-3) has won
two in a row for the first time.



Philadelphia (2-5) has dropped two in a row.



Kimmo Timonen ended Lundqvist's shutout bid 7:09 into the third
with a power-play goal after the Rangers were caught with too
many men on the ice. Philadelphia's power play failed twice in
the second half of the period when the Flyers pressed for the
tying goal.



"We have to be more hungry," said Flyers forward Danny Briere,
who tied a career high with 10 shots. "The 5-on-3 got us. It's
something we'll have to look at.



"Their goalie is so good. You need a great shot to beat him."



Ilya Bryzgalov, back in the net after his first game off, was
solid in making 26 saves for Philadelphia.



New York got back at the Flyers after losing 2-1 last week in
Philadelphia. Last season, the Rangers won all six games over
the Flyers.



The Rangers, who have won three of four overall, have one game
left on a three-game homestand that ends Thursday against
Pittsburgh. New York rallied to beat Toronto 5-2 on Saturday
with four goals in the third period.



"We're trying to keep our game consistent," Del Zotto said. "I
thought last game we did a great job trying to gain our identity
back. We followed up with, maybe it wasn't the prettiest at
times, but we found a way to win."



It wasn't easy. With the Rangers short-handed following a
penalty for too many men on the ice, Timonen brought the Flyers
within 2-1. He was left alone in the high slot when New York had
all four players involved in a scrum in the right corner.



The power play for both sides told the story in the second
period. Philadelphia was turned away by the Rangers during a
5-on-3 advantage that lasted for 1:17, and then allowed a
power-play goal to New York 3:32 after the teams got back to
full strength.



Philadelphia had a chance to at least get even after Richards
was called for holding, and Derek Stepan took a delay-of-game
penalty 43 seconds later.



Flyers coach Peter Laviolette used his lone timeout, but his
club got very few pucks to the net despite controlling play
throughout. Philadelphia had an added benefit when Jeff Halpern
lost his stick in front, but still couldn't create anything.



"We certainly had our chances," Flyers forward Mike Knuble said.
"It's the little things. We started to wear them down but
couldn't cash in.



"They are great shot-blocking team. We were passing up some good
opportunities. The 5-on-3 was a turning point."



The Madison Square Garden crowd let out a roar when Stepan left
the penalty box, and then had more reason to cheer when Callahan
doubled New York's lead.



The Rangers had scored only twice in 22 power-play chances over
their first five games, and failed again on their lone
opportunity in the first period. But Del Zotto got involved
again to help New York net its second goal.



Nash took a shot from the high slot that Del Zotto tipped in
front of Bryzgalov. Callahan got the rebound, calmly settled the
puck down as he shifted to his right, and then slid a shot into
the open right side at 11:31 for his second goal of the season
and 200th NHL point.



The Rangers struck quickly after their top line couldn't get the
puck out of its zone during the game's first shift.



New York worked the puck around in the Philadelphia end, and Del
Zotto let go a shot from the left point that slid across the ice
through a maze of legs and skates and found its way past
Bryzgalov, who appeared not to see the puck as Brian Boyle and
Benn Ferriero screened him.



NOTES: The teams will meet three more times, including twice in
New York. ... The Flyers are 2-for-27 on the power play in their
five losses this season and 3-for-10 in their two wins. They
have allowed only one power-play goal in their victories.
