The Flyers are stuck somewhere between last place and a playoff spot. The next five games, all home, will be the final telling on whether or not this is a playoff team, or a team destined to draft high.

Nash, Callahan too much for Flyers

Despite a strong first period, Ryan Callahan and Rick Nash proved to be too much as the Rangers downed the Flyers 4-2 on Tuesday night.

With the game tied at two early in the second period, Nash wristed a scorching shot that beat goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov on the blocker side to give the Rangers a 3-2 edge.

Nash added another goal about eight minutes later as he got behind the Flyers defense and scored to put the game out of reach.

Will The Real Tampa Bay Lightning Team Please Stand Up

Lundqvist, Rangers Foil Flyers

NEW YORK -- It was too little too late for the Flyers.

High-Octane 2nd Leads Flyers Over Rangers

As the seconds ticked away in the third period, the decible level Wells Fargo Center slowly rose to a deafening crescendo.

The sounds of victory filled the Flyers barn for the first time in 2013, and they couldn't have come at a more important time.

For a moment, the Flyers put behind them a trio of injuries and a suspension to earn their first win of the season, a 2-1 final that didn't reflect just how much the Flyers dominated the game.

Here are my Eastern Conference power rankings.

1. Pittsburgh Penguins – A healthyEvgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby will lead Pittsburgh deep into the Stanley Cup playoffs. The addition of veteran goalie Tomas Vokoun gives Coach Dan Bylsma a solid option if Marc-Andre Fleury falters.

2. New York Rangers – With the ...
