NEW YORK (Ticker) -- If the Philadelphia Flyers want to capture the Atlantic Division title, they face a virtual must-win contest against the first-place New York Rangers on Tuesday.

Philadelphia trails New York by two points in the Atlantic, with each team having eight games remaining - including two against each other.

The visiting team has won all six meetings in the season series and the Flyers have won six straight visits to Madison Square Garden, where they have outscored the Rangers over that stretch, 21-12.

The Flyers are coming off Sunday's 4-1 triumph over the New York Islanders in which they scored three times in the first period and put an end to their brief two-game skid.

Mike Knuble, Sami Kapanen and rookies R.J. Umberger and Jeff Carter tallied for Philadelphia, which has won five of its last seven games.

The Rangers are coming off a 4-1 loss at Ottawa on Thursday. Defenseman Fedor Tyutin scored the lone goal for New York.

Rangers superstar Jaromir Jagr has an 11-game points streak, during which he has nine goals and 13 assists.
