Brian Propp scored two goals in the first period and rookie goaltender Bob Froese registered his first National Hockey League shutout as Philadelphia won in New York.

Froese, who joined the Flyers 10 days ago when regular goalie Pelle Lindbergh was injured, had little work, facing only 16 shots in making his record 3-0. Froese's toughest save came on a third-period breakaway by Ron Duguay.

By then, the Flyers, 11-0-1 in their last 12 outings, were on top, 4-0, led by Propp and Bill Barber, who had a goal and two assists.

Propp, who leads the league in game-winning goals with eight, opened the scoring on a power play by deflecting in a shot by Mark Taylor at 2:13 of the first period. He made it 2-0 by poking in a loose puck at 13:31.

Ilkka Sinisalo beat Rangers goalie Glen Hanlon with a wrist shot from the slot at 17:26 after some loose play in their own zone by the Rangers. Barber, wearing a helmet and face mask to protect a nine-stitch cut on his face suffered Saturday, completed the scoring with a 45-foot slap shot in the third period.

The shutout was the second in a row against the Rangers. Before being blanked, 2-0, while being held to 14 shots in Boston on Saturday, New York had not been held scoreless for 120 games.
