Schenn scored his first goal of the season Tuesday, capping off a 4-1 victory over Edmonton.

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."
