Luke Schenn D PHI 6 Months

Philadelphia hockey columnist Frank Seravalli says Luke Schenn was the Flyers' best defenseman in their first-round playoff series against the New York Rangers.

"The most glaring fact from the seven-game series (won by the Rangers) remains the most startling: the Flyers' best defenseman was . . . drumroll, please . . . Luke Schenn," Seravalli writes.

Luke Schenn's second period goal was the winner as the Flyers beat the Rangers 4-2 Sunday.

It was only his second postseason appearance as Schenn spent the first four seasons of his career playing for Toronto and was dealt to the Flyers in the 2012 off-season. This season was the first time his team had played in the playoffs and he picked up his first goal in only his second playoff game. "It's nice," Schenn said. "Obviously, it's nice to contribute offensively. I try to take care of the D zone first, but it was nice to contribute. In playoffs, it doesn't matter who does it. Everyone's got to chip in."

Luke Schenn is eager to make his playoffs debut.

Schenn has played in 422 NHL games without making a single postseason appearance. There's a good chance he will end that streak in the near future though. "In Toronto for a few years there, I hate to say it, but you were pretty much out of it from the All-Star break or the Olympic break," Schenn said. "After the break, it was always about playing for a job for next year or trying to play the spoiler. It's completely different, trying to help a team get in. This is a lot more exciting. It's real exciting to come to the rink every day." He doesn't have much fantasy value in standard leagues, but that's because he's more of a defensive defenseman.
