Apologies for missing notes yesterday. It's a busy time of year, but also obviously a busy and important time of year as far as hockey and the Rangers are concerned. Shifting to Friday night's upcoming action, the Rangers have a chance to put the Flyers in a major hole. A win would mean Philly would need to knock off the Rangers in three straight to advance to the Eastern Conference semis. The Rangers haven't dropped three straight since early March. Here are your morning notes.
