Philly Lets Carbomb Know He’s #1: April 22nd, 2014
It was the first postseason appearance under Alain Vigneault. The Rangers opened up their Stanley Cup run, by meeting the Philadelphia Flyers in the first round.
With the two teams splitting the first two games at Madison Square Garden, the series focus shifted to the City of Brotherly Love and Wells Fargo Center.
Former Flyers tough guy Daniel Carcillo found himself in familiar territory. Perhaps one of the players that epitomize the Flyers toughness, Carcillo sat on the opposite bench wearing Rangers blue.
Perhaps his greatest game for New York, he left a unforgettable moment that will remain in the minds of both Rangers and Flyers fans.
In his homecoming, the Blueshirts were all over the Flyers 3-1 through two and half periods. What Carcillo did was icing on the Rangers’ cake. But what Flyers fans did following his goal was even greater: Philadelphia’s own way of showing their appreciation for one of their former players.
Danny-Boy, you will always be “number one” in the eyes of Flyers fans.
