The New York Rangers fell to the Philadelphia Flyers yesterday 6-3. It was three power play goals against and losing Justin Richards and Austin Rueschhoff early that gave the Blueshirts’ kids their woes.
This rematch should be a fun one starting at 5 PM.
“We were a little disappointed with the way things ended,” Morgan Barron said after the loss. “It was nice to play against people who aren’t on your team and get a feel for hockey again. I think we will be better tomorrow.”

Recap: Flyers 6 vs Rangers 3
The Flyers rookies jumped out to a 3-0 lead after one period on the strength of two power play goals. Outside of the Blueshirts top line, they didn’t get much going and spent far too much time in their own zone.
In the second period it was Barron that got the Rangers rookies on the board first. That was followed by a Pajuniemi tip that was disallowed for offside. Patrick Khoderenko would get the second goal for the Rangers which was then followed by Pajuniemi’s game-tying snipe off a Cuylle feed.
Pajuniemi, 22, has his sights set on the NHL and the 5th round draft pick from 2018 explained his success in Finland before coming over to camp.
“Two years ago, when I was scoring like one goal in a game, I was really happy,” he explained. “But then the Rangers scout said to me that, ‘You need to have that confidence that you want more. Every night you score one goal, you need to get another,’ and I started to think like that and the goals were coming.”
The period ended with another Flyers PP goal which gave them the lead at 4-3 to close the second.
Philly would open the scoring in the third and Finnish it with an empty net goal for a 6-3 win.
In the end, there were just too many penalties by the Rangers rookies. The Flyers scored 3 PP goals in the contest which was too much to overcome.
This is something Kris Knoblauch who coached the game will try and correct before tomorrow’s rematch.
