FIVE THINGS: Game 5 - Flyers at NY Rangers
Flyers look for first lead of the series in pivotal Game 5 at MSG





The Flyers enter Game 5 in a 2-2 series tie for the 22nd time in team history, but only third time in their last 12 playoff series dating back to the start of the 2008 playoffs… The Flyers own a 12-9 record in Game 5s in which they are tied in a series, but have dropped four straight Game 5s when the series has been tied, 2-2… Overall, the Flyers own a mark of 34-25 in Game 5s and have won 27 of 34 playoff series when winning Game 5, compared to an 8-17 series record when losing Game 5.




The Flyers come into today's game going 3-for-11 (27.3%) on the power-play in the series, compared to the Rangers who are 3-for-20 (15%)… The Rangers have scored all three of their power-play goals on home ice, going 3-for-12 (25%), while the Flyers have gone 50% on their man-advantage while on the road, going 2-for-4… Five of the six power-play goals in the series have come at Madison Square Garden… Both of Brayden Schenn's points in the series (2 assists) have come on the power-play… The Flyers penalty kill has been perfect in the last two games, killing off their last eight Rangers' power plays… The series has combined for 86 penalty minutes through the first four games, an average of 21.5 minutes per-game.




Of the 19 goals scored in the series, 10 have been scored in the first period with the Flyers scoring four of their eight goals in the first and the Rangers scoring six of their 11 goals in the opening frame… The Rangers have scored 10 of their 11 goals in the first and third period in the series… The team scoring first in the series has won only once thus far (Rangers in Game 3)… The Flyers defense has accounted for 28 shots in the series thus far, while the Rangers D has 22 shots in the series… Rookie Jason Akeson leads the Flyers in shots in the series (10), while Rick Nash leads the Rangers with 23 shots on goal… The Flyers won the only day game of the series (Game 2), and during the regular season, owned a 10-4-4 record and earned at least a point in nine of their last 10 games in start times of 3 pm or earlier, going 7-1-2 in that stretch, while the Rangers went 4-2-0 in six games that started 2 pm or earlier.
 




Voracek has been the Flyers constant presence in the series… He leads the team in scoring with two goals and three points, recording a point in each of the last three games, despite ranking 11th on the team and fifth among forwards in average ice-time during the series (15:58)… Voracek ranked second on the Flyers in points (62) and assists (39) in the regular season, both of which were new career highs, while tying for the team lead in plus-minus at +11… Today is Voracek's 20th career Stanley Cup Playoff game - he has a total of 14 points (4g-10a) through his first 19 postseason games… Against the Rangers, Voracek has eight goals and 14 points in 18 regular season games.
Dating back to the regular season, Lundqvist has allowed two goals or less in five of his last six starts… In the playoffs so far, he has a 1.76 goals-against-average and .927 save percentage while going 2-2… He owns a postseason record of 32-39 with a 2.25 GAA and .921 save percentage… He enters his 72 career playoff game today and 71st consecutive playoff start for the Rangers - a streak that dates back to 2008, which is a franchise record and is the seventh time in NHL history that a goalie has started at least 70 consecutive playoff games for the same team.
