The Rangers try again to lock up the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference against the Flyers on Tuesday.
From ESPN Stats and Information Group: The Rangers are 5-0-0 vs the Flyers this season and face them tonight for the final time. Only twice in this rivalry has a team swept the season series from the other, and both years resulted in an appearance in the Stanley Cup finals for the sweeping team (Flyers went 7-0-0 in 1984-85; Rangers went 6-0-0 in 1971-72). Both teams lost the Stanley Cup finals in those seasons.
