It wasn't that they split with the Rangers, it is the way they split with the Rangers. The combination of the Devil's win in Montreal, and this split makes it very difficult, at this point, to catch New Jersey. So now is the time to watch our backs. The number 4 seed is the best we are getting. And if Carolina, Florida, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, and the Rangers all finish with a flurry, this coud get more exciting than we want.
If the Flyers continue to allow shots on goal at 40/game, they may be ice fishing in mid April.
