Georgiev makes 29 saves and Rangers blank Flyers 3-0

Alexandar Georgiev had all the answers against the Philadelphia Flyers championship rings for sale.

Georgiev made 29 saves and Ryan Strome scored for the third consecutive game and the New York Rangers championship rings beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-0 on Sunday.

Pavel Buchnevich, and Brady Skjei also scored for the Rangers and Brett Howden had two assists.

Strome scored late in the first period to give the custom New York Rangers championship rings a 2-0 lead when he went top shelf on Flyers goalie Carter Hart, who had only one defenseman helping him defend an odd-man rush.

The goal was Strome's 17th of the season for the Rangers and 18th overall. He leads the NHL stanley cup rings in goals for his new team after being traded this season. He was acquired from Edmonton in November. The second player on this list is Strome's brother, Dylan, who has 14 goals since being acquired by Chicago in a trade with Arizona in November.

A third Strome brother, Matthew, was assigned by the Flyers to their AHL affiliate in Lehigh Valley after the 20-year-old's junior team, the Hamilton Bulldogs, was eliminated from the OHL playoffs.

"Obviously when you get rid of a lot of veteran guys it's tough," Ryan Strome said of the rebuilding Rangers. "For our young group, the losing can wear on you a little bit. When we had that stretch there (of five straight losses earlier in March) it wasn't too much fun championship rings.

"Good to get a couple wins here. It's a tough building. They got a bunch of older guys that know how to win. Good to come in here and play a pretty solid road game. Good for the group to have a little more confidence moving forward."

The shutout was Georgiev's second of the season to keep the cheap Philadelphia Flyers championship rings from winning all four games between the teams this season. The Flyers hadn't swept the season series against the Rangers since 1984-85. Going back to last season, the Flyers had taken six straight games against the Rangers.

It was the Flyers' first game since being eliminated from playoff contention.

Buchnevich opened the scoring with his 20th of the season at 16:25 of the first period.

Brady Skjei scored his seventh of the season in the third period when his shot went off two Flyers and behind Hart, who finished with 22 saves.

The Flyers' best chance to score was when James van Riemsdyk had a breakaway late in the second period.

"I think I played a pretty good positional game," Georgiev said. "I tried to be square to the puck and be patient on my feet."
