PHI AT NYR
Rangers 3, Philadelphia Flyers 2 (SO)

4/4/2006

The long postseason dryspell is history, and the Rangers are going back to the Stanley Cup playoffs in 2006. Petr Sykora and Michael Nylander scored in an overtime shootout at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, and the Rangers beat Philadelphia 3-2. Goalie Kevin Weekes, the No. 1 star, was spectacular in the final period, making eight saves to pave the way for a Blueshirts victory.

THREE STARS OF THE GAME
1. K. WEEKES - NYR
2. M. NYLANDER - NYR
3. R. ESCHE - PHI

NOTES
* NHL scoring leader Jaromir Jagr had an assist on the first Rangers goal by Michael Nylander, extending his point-scoring streak to 12 games. Jagr was held without a goal for the third consecutive game and is still one goal shy of breaking the team record for goals in a season (which he shares with Adam Graves at 52).

* Nylander extended his point-scoring streak to 11 games (career-high), collecting five goals and 15 assists over the span.

* With 12 shots in the game, Jagr broke Phil Esposito's Rangers team record of 344 shots, set during the 1976-77 season. Jagr now has 345 shots on the season.

* Rangers goaltender Kevin Weekes notched his third win of the season against the Flyers, making 21 saves.

* The Rangers clinched their first playoff berth since 1997.

* The Rangers recalled goaltender Al Montoya from Hartford of the AHL to serve as Weekes' backup while Henrik Lundqvist is sidelined with a hip injury.
