When it was over, Guy Boucher was asked to explain Erik Karlsson.

A wide grin crossed Boucher’s face as the press conference room on Madison Square Garden’s fifth floor dissolved into laughter.

"I’m glad he’s on my team," Boucher said.

The New York Rangers finally won at home again, and also accomplished a feat they’re proud of.

Oscar Lindberg and Chris Kreider scored 2:09 apart midway through the third period, and the Rangers held on to beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 Sunday night for their first win at home in six weeks. New York reached 100 points in a third straight season for just the second time in franchise history.

Brandon Parrish sat at the podium, wearing a commemorative t-shirt and a net draped around his neck. To his right was coach Jamie Dixon. On his left was Kenrich Williams.

Parrish made sure to savor the moment.

“We have something that’s forever,” he said. “Nobody can ever take this away from us.”
