Flyers-Rangers Game 7: Nothing better

I have said many times there is nothing in sports that quite compares to the drama of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

For my money, they are the best ticket in town.

And if that is the case, then we are in store for a treat tonight.

That's because last night, a gutty Flyers team trampled all over the Rangers, posting a convincing 5-2 win, and in the process forcing a deciding Game 7 tonight back at Madison Square Garden in the Big Apple.

That's correct. That's not a misprint. After going four days before games last week, the Flyers and Rangers will get about 18 hours off before they tee it up again tonight.

That, of course, is because in today's sports world, they play the games when TV tells them to. Monday talks, and all that.

None of that will steal the glory from one of sports truly special events, Game 7 of a Stanley Cup playoff series.

Overtime, anyone?
