                   Final Score: Philadelphia 4, NY Rangers 2
 
 New  York,  NY (SportsNetwork.com) -  Luke Schenn netted the game-winner 11:18
 into  the second period, as the Philadelphia Flyers reeled off four unanswered
 goals  to  claim a 4-2  victory over the  New York Rangers  in Game 2 of their
 Eastern  Conference  quarterfinal series  from  Madison  Square Garden.  After
 dropping  Game  1 by  a 4-1  margin, the Flyers  fell behind  2-0 in the first
 period  Sunday before  roaring back to even this best-of-seven set at one game
 apiece. Jakub Voracek, Jason Akeson and Wayne Simmonds each scored once, while
 Ray  Emery, starting back-to-back games for the first time all season, stopped
 31  shots for  the Flyers, who snapped  a nine-game losing skid at MSG. Martin
 St.  Louis  and Benoit  Pouliot potted  a goal  apiece, while Henrik Lundqvist
 allowed three goals on 24 shots for the Rangers, who went 1-for-6 on the power
 play  and allowed the Flyers to score on two of their three chances on the man
 advantage. The series shifts to Philadelphia for Game 3 on Tuesday.
 
 
                        Final Score: Boston 4, Detroit 1
 
 Boston,  MA  (SportsNetwork.com) - The  Boston Bruins'  first goal of the 2014
 playoffs  came  from an  unlikely  source.  Justin Florek  snapped  top-seeded
 Boston's  scoreless drought in the first period Sunday after Jimmy Howard came
 out  of the  net to clear a puck  and the Bruins scored three more goals for a
 4-1  win over  the Detroit  Red  Wings in  Game  2 of  the Eastern  Conference
 quarterfinals.  The  Bruins, after  losing 1-0 on  Friday, evened the best-of-
 seven  series  going into  Game 3  on Tuesday in  Detroit. Reilly Smith, Milan
 Lucic  and Zdeno  Chara also scored and  Tuukka Rask made 34 saves, letting in
 just  the one goal after a shot hit off Detroit center Luke Glendening's glove
 in the crease. Florek, 23, was recalled from Providence of the AHL on Tuesday,
 just two days after he had been sent down.
