PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Bruins loss to the Capitals on Wednesday night assures that the Flyers will not have to play the Rangers in the conference semi-finals. Winless against the Rangers this season, conventional wisdom says the Flyers dodged a bullet. Kimmo Timonen says winless or not, they’re not afraid of the Rangers.

“Even if we lost six game to them, I still, I truly believe we can beat those guys,” Timonen told 94WIP’s Angelo Cataldi and The WIP Morning Show on Thursday. “It’s not something like ‘we can’t take these guys.'”

Three of those six games actually I thought we were the better team, we just gave up too many easy goals. When you do that against the Rangers it’s tough to score because their goalie is so good. In the playoffs it will be different,” he said.

The Flyers will find out who they’ll be playing in the second round of the playoffs tonight.

Even though Claude Giroux had his coming-out party in the Flyers first round series against the Penguins, Timonen said he was telling people at the All-Star Break that Giroux is the real deal. “He’s our engine, he’s our motor. When he’s going, we’re going,” he said he told people. “The way he took the game control on Sunday, that’s him. That’s what leadership’s all about.”
