As the Philadelphia Flyers (46-24-9) get set to face the New York Rangers (50-22-7) for the last time this regular season, they will do so without the services of Daniel Briere and Nicklas Grossmann.
Briere, who suffered a concussion on January 21st, came back to the team on February 7th and took some time to get back on track.
He proved that recently, notching nine points in his last five games, getting hot just in time for the playoffs, where he tends to dominate.
The Philadelphia Flyers love playing against the New York Islanders.
For the 22nd time in 23 meetings the Flyers came away with two points, erasing a 3-1 deficit, and defeated the Islanders 4-3 in overtime.
Danny Briere scored his second goal of the game with 2:26 remaining in overtime, seconds after the Flyers killed a rare overtime penalty.
