Flyers playoffs 2014: It'll be Philadelphia vs. New York in Round 1

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sport

For the first time in 17 years, the Flyers and Rangers will meet in the postseason.

We'll know the schedule later this evening, but we know the important part: the Flyers will play the Rangers in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Reports indicate that Game 1 will be Thursday evening at Madison Square Garden, which would likely put Game 2 on Saturday, also in New York.

The rest of the Eastern Conference playoffs are set, with home ice in the Tampa Bay vs. Montreal series the only remaining question mark on Sunday, the final day of the regular season.

Atlantic Division Playoffs
No. 1 Boston Bruins vs. No. 4/WC2 Detroit Red Wings
No. 2/3 Tampa Bay Lightning vs. No. 3/2 Montreal Canadiens

Metropolitan Division Playoffs
No. 1 Pittsburgh Penguins vs. No. 4/WC1 Columbus Blue Jackets
No. 2 New York Rangers vs. No. 3 Philadelphia Flyers

The Flyers haven't played the Rangers in the postseason since 1997, when the Flyers won the Eastern Conference Final and Billy Penn got to wear a huge orange jersey courtesy of the City of New York. All total, the Flyers and Rangers have faced off in the postseason 10 times. The Flyers have won six of the meetings, including the last three.

  • 1997 Eastern Conference Final: Flyers won, 4-1
  • 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinal: Flyers won, 4-0
  • 1987 Patrick Division Semifinal: Flyers won, 4-2
  • 1986 Patrick Division Semifinal: Rangers win, 3-2
  • 1985 Patrick Division Semifinal: Flyers won, 3-0
  • 1983 Patrick Division Semifinal: Rangers won, 3-0
  • 1982 Patrick Division Semifinal: Rangers won, 3-1
  • 1980 quarterfinal: Flyers won, 4-1
  • 1979 quarterfinal: Rangers won, 4-1
  • 1974 semifinal: Flyers won, 4-3

Go Flyers.
