The Rangers will host Game 7 of their Stanley Cup playoff series with the Philadelphia Flyers Wednesday at Madison Square Garden.

The showdown comes after the Blueshirts failed to pull off a win last night in Philadelphia.

The final score was 5-2.

Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist said the Flyers outplayed the Rangers in Tuesday night's game.

"Playoffs is all about having a short memory, so you move on and don't think too much about this game. Like I said, they did pretty much everything better than us, and even goaltending," he said.

Rangers forward Brad Richards is looking forward to playing on his home turf.

"You always want to close a series out, but when you're on home ice with your fans in a must-win game, those are great days to be part of, and we're going to embrace it," Richards said.

Wednesday's game is set for 7 p.m.

Many fans were confident in the Rangers' ability to win and the crowd's ability to help them.

"The garden crowd is unparalleled on the planet Earth, and that is what brings it all together for this team. We're going to win it based on the crowd and our talent, no question," said one fan.

"Well, of course, the Rangers have to win. Thank God they're home. And all the fans here can stand outside and cheer and hopefully have a celebration afterward," said another fan.

The winner moves on to face the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
