Revenge is a dish best served on ice.
Wayne Simmonds (right in above photo) scored in the second period, and the Flyers beat the New York Rangers 4-2 in a preseason game Tuesday night, squaring the home and home series with the Rangers who beat the Flyers Monday night in New York.
Flyers captain Claude Giroux logged more than 16 1/2 minutes in his first exhibition game this season. Giroux suffered a lower-body injury early in the first practice of training camp.
Sean Couturier scored in the first for Philly, which lost 6-3 to the Rangers on Monday night. Ray Emery, who also had missed time with a lower-body injury, had 24 stops.
Carl Hagelin and rookie Anthony Duclair scored for New York. Cam Talbot stopped 19 of 22 shots in two periods of work.
Simmonds’ goal at 13:25 of the second gave the Flyers a 3-1 lead.
