Flyers Win! Enjoy Watching Nik Grossmann Destroy Marian Gaborik and Tye McGinn Pound Kris Newbury

A win! A dearly needed win. And over the New York Rangers no less.

There were a lot of positives in the Flyers 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers, from the power play finally clicking, to the 5-on-3 penalty kill late in the third. The effort from the Flyers tonight was fantastic, capped off by Jake Voracek working hard to pound in what turned out to be the game winner.

While we're just taking a quick look at this enjoyable win, Nik Grossman's huge hit on Marian Gaborik (above) and youngster Tye McGinn showing he isn't afraid to mix things up as well (below). It really helped with the Flyers keeping energy late.

More of all of this, please.

T.J. McConnell (wrist) in a splint, doubtful to play for Sixers Wednesday

Sixers point guard T.J. McConnell is doubtful for Wednesday's home game against the Raptors with a right wrist sprain.

McConnell was in a splint at practice Tuesday and said he would try to play but would leave it up to the medical staff.

McConnell is averaging 4.8 points and 5.4 assists in 38 games. The Sixers went 5-2 in the last seven games he started before his injury, and won 113-104 in Milwaukee without him. Sergio Rodriguez started at PG in McConnell's place and had 10 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Chasson Randle backed up the point and had 10 points and a pair of threes.

Joel Embiid did not practice Tuesday (rest) and is listed as probable for Wednesday night when the Sixers (13-26) host the Raptors (27-13).

“Joel Embiid ... was a little bit, had the flu,” Brett Brown said.

Jahlil Okafor (probable) did not participate in practice and received treatment. Brown said Okafor had soreness. Gerald Henderson is also probable and had an individualized workout Tuesday.

Wayne Simmonds gets engaged during Flyers' bye week

Wayne Simmonds gets engaged during Flyers' bye week

So far, 2017 has been a pretty big year for Wayne Simmonds.
 
In addition to being named to his first All-Star team this year, Simmonds clearly had big plans on how to spend his bye week away from hockey, before returning to play the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. He popped the question to his girlfriend, Crystal Corey, and she said yes.
 
Simmonds announced the engagement on his Instagram.

11,700 feet and she said YES! I Love you @cryscorey 💛#SimmondsandSimmonds

It could be good news for the Flyers, too. Simmonds is the second Flyer to get engaged this season after Claude Giroux popped the question in December after winning three in a row. The Flyers made the winning streak an even 10 after. Congratulations, Wayne!
