New York Rangers vs Philadelphia Flyers: Stanley Cup 2014 first-round preview

Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers

Flyers goaltender Ray Emery beats up unwilling combatant Braden Holtby

Last night’s game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals wasn’t pretty on the scoreboard, and it wasn’t pretty on the ice. With the winner a foregone conclusion, a line-brawl erupted, sparked by a Wayne Simmonds hit. Flyers goaltender Ray Emery took it upon himself to do his part in fighting with his team. The netminder raced down the ice to engage Caps goaltender Braden Holtby in one-on-one combat. However, Holtby seemed uninterested in partaking. Emery wailed on him anyway.

The Capitals won the game 7-0 courtesy of three goals by Joel Ward, two by Nicklas Backstrom, and one apiece by Troy Brouwer and Jason Chimera.
