  • October 11, 2000 -- The teams played to a 3-3 tie in Minnesota. Eric Desjardins' (8 shots) goal midway in the third period finished the scoring. Peter White (2-0-2) scored twice for the Flyers, including the first goal of the game, with Rick Tocchet (0-2-2) assisting on both. Brian Boucher made a terrific save on Marian Gaborik in the closing minute of regulation. Manny Fernandez made 36 saves for the Wild. Philly held a 7-2 shot advantage in OT and 39-22 in the game. Gino Odjick and Andy Sutton fought -- ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwO4E4_6F50 ). Mark Recchi suffered a concussion and missed 13 of the next 14 games. A sellout crowd of 18,827 witnessed an elaborate pre-game ceremony signifying the rich history of hockey in the state of Minnesota. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said "Minnesota and hockey is a no-brainer" and "I'm sorry we left. Bringing pro hockey back here was by far the right thing to do." It was the third regular season game for the Wild and first home game (there were two preseason games). The Minnesota North Stars last hosted an NHL regular season game on April 13, 1993.

  • March 15, 2001 -- The teams met in Philadelphia for the first time and Roman Cechmanek (15-save shutout and one assist) and Michal Sykora (1-1-2) starred in the Flyers' 3-0 victory. The shutout was the rookie's league-leading ninth of the season and fourth in his last seven starts. Since Bill Barber became head coach, Cechmanek started every home game and had a 16-3-2 home mark in 21 appearances. Rick Tocchet gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead with an unassisted PPG. Dean McAmmond, acquired two days earlier, scored in his Flyers' debut and made it 3-0; it was the only goal in his Flyers' career. The Flyers held a 36-15 shots advantage and went 2-for-6 on the PP. Manny Fernandez stopped 20 of 22 shots before suffering a sprained left ankle and was replaced by Jamie McLennan who made 13 saves on 14 shots. Prior to the game, Mark Howe was inducted as the 17th member of the Flyers' Hall of Fame.

  • December 8, 2001 -- Jan Hlavac's two goals within 42 seconds broke open a tight game and the Flyers won 5-1 in Philadelphia. Luke Richardson gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead, his only goal of the season and came after he missed the prior 10 games due to a fractured right foot. Richardson, who broke his right foot November 10, scored his first goal in 51 games dating to January 22, 2001. Mark Recchi had three points. Roman Cechmanek made 31 saves. Prior to the game, Jenny Barber, the 48-year old wife of Flyers' head coach Bill Barber, died of lung cancer after an eight-month battle; the couple was married for 28 years. "For my family's standpoint, Jen and my kids thought I should be here. On top of that, I felt the same way for my players that I wanted to be here for them," said a solemn Barber.
  • February 10, 2003 -- Manny Fernandez, who returned to the lineup after missing 13 games with a knee injury, made 30 saves and Pascal Dupuis, who scored in the first period, led Minnesota to a 1-0 win in Philadelphia. The Flyers won 35 of 55 faceoffs including 12 of 15 by Keith Primeau and outshot the Wild 30-19. Todd Fedoruk fought Matt Johnson ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1luFcd6Hcf8 ) and Brad Brown.
  • February 12, 2003 -- Dwayne Roloson made 31 saves in leading the Wild to a 2-0 home win broadcast on ESPN2. Cliff Ronning and Wes Walz scored, Ronning's goal coming late in the second period to snap a scoreless tie. Minnesota shutout the Flyers twice in three nights and two goalies made 61 saves. It was the first time an NHL team had consecutive shutouts in a home-and-home series since the Flyers did it to the Rangers in October 1999. In the last nine games, the Flyers scored just eight goals. Jim Vandermeer fought Jason Marshall in the first period.
  • November 20, 2003 -- Mark Recchi (2-1-3) starred and Robert Esche made 21 saves as the streaking Flyers (7-0-1 in the last eight) won 3-1 at home. Recchi, who scored two PPGs (the first coming on a 5-on-3 advantage), Tony Amonte (GWG, 1-1-2) and Jeremy Roenick (0-2-2) combined for seven points. The game's four goals were scored in the final six minutes of the second period. The lone goal by Minnesota was by Alexandre Daigle which tied the game 1-1. The Flyers held a 41-23 shot advantage. A lengthy scrap between Jim Vandermeer-Brad Brown: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz4EWG_ljGQ

  • December 17, 2003 -- Eric Chouinard was traded to Minnesota for the Wild's 5th round choice (Chris Zarb) in the 2004 Entry Draft.
  • December 10, 2005 -- Branko Radivojevic scored with 53 seconds to play in the Flyers' 3-2 home victory. Radivojevic was sent on the ice as a defensive substitution but picked up a loose rebound off a Mike Knuble shot for the GWG. Antero Niittymaki made 23 saves. The Flyers led 2-0 midway though the game but the Wild eventually knotted the game 2-2. Kim Johnsson scored for Philadelphia as did Peter Forsberg (1-1-2) who returned to the lineup after missing six games with a groin strain. The Flyers were without Simon Gagne, Eric Desjardins, Keith Primeau, Joni Pitkanen and Turner Stevenson.
  • December 5, 2007 -- Antero Niittymaki made 28 saves and Jeff Carter, the game's top star, had (1-1-2) two points in the first period in Philly's 3-1 win at Minnesota. The Wild went 1-for-8 on the PP while the Flyers failed on just two chances. The Flyers had three minors in the first 5:18 of the game but led 2-0 after the first period. After 86 seconds, the Flyers' two leading scorers, Daniel Briere and Mike Richards, were in the penalty box and Minnesota had a five-on-three power play for more than a minute. The Wild had a called goal overturned after a video review couldn't find evidence that the puck had crossed the goal line. Pavol Demitra got Minnesota on the board in the second period but Braydon Coburn made it 3-1 in the third period. Minnesota was credited with 15 hits to just one for the Flyers. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwxWJM0RLTE

  • January 8, 2009 -- Martin Biron made 27 saves, the Flyers' PK was a perfect 8-for-8 and Mike Knuble and Scottie Upshall (1-1-2) scored in the third period in Philly's 3-1 home win. Knuble's GWG came seven seconds into a PP, the Flyers only manpower advantage in the game. The Flyers were 6-for-6 on the PK, including a kill of 1:03 of a 5-on-3, before getting a PP chance. “It’s a little frustrating. It seemed like everything we did, they were either falling down and getting the calls, or we were just trying to give a guy an extra shot, and it seemed like they were calling it on us all night," said Scott Hartnell whose tying goal in the second period ended Niklas Backstrom's attempt at three straight shutouts (149:09 of time). Mike Richards won 17 of 23 faceoffs. Brent Burns played 30:03. It was the Flyers' first home game after a 6-game road trip. Arron Asham and Eric Reitz fought -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HA6k0Qk20e8 Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0D31JIxcPM .

  • February 6, 2010 -- Anton Khudobin, the game's top star, made 38 saves in his first NHL start and Cal Clutterbuck and Owen Nolan scored in the Wild's 2-1 win at Minnesota. The Wild took a 1-0 lead late in the first period after miscommunication behind the net caused Michael Leighton's attempted clear to land directly on the stick of Clutterbuck. Dan Carcillo scored 16 seconds later to even the score. Nolan scored the GWG just past the midway point of the game. Minnesota beat Philly for the first time since 2003. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvykuoTnxUU
  • March 25, 2010 -- Kyle Brodziak scored the GWG in Minnesota's 4-3 OT win at Philly. The goal came as a result of a deflection off Chris Pronger's stick after Brian Boucher made the initial stop. Afterwards, Pronger said "It's a lack of focus, a lack of concentration, a lack of desire. That game should be locked down at 3-1. This late in the season, that's just unacceptable." Philly led 2-0 at the 4:18 mark and 3-1 after two periods. Martin Havlat and Andrew Brunette scored in the third period. Niklas Backstrom made 32 saves. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YCjDm2ASa0
  • November 24, 2010 -- Six different Flyers scored in a 6-1 victory at Minnesota. James van Riemsdyk and Jeff Carter gave the Flyers a 2-0 lead 5:32 into the game. Danny Briere (1-1-2) scored with a minute to play in the second period which gave Philly a 3-1 advantage. Ville Leino and Andreas Nodl, the game's chosen top two stars, also had a goal and an assist each. Philly outshot Minnesota 28-16. Sergei Bobrovsky made 15 saves. Claude Giroux's slapper with 1:57 to play in the opening period shattered the glass and on-ice officials decided to continue the remainder of the period after the teams returned from their dressing rooms. Jody Shelley and Zack Kassian fought ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPdAojzRVCA ). Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=er9RgUuHVDE

  • June 27, 2011 -- Restricted free agent Darroll Powe was traded to Minnesota for a 2013 3rd round pick.
  • January 17, 2012 -- Kimmo Timonen (PP), Sean Couturier (SH) and Scott Hartnell (PP) scored on special teams in the Flyers' 5-1 home win. Timonen scored the go-ahead tally just 2:26 into the game. Ilya Bryzgalov made 25 saves. Matt Read and Jaromir Jagr had two assists. Ex-Flyer Darrol Powe scored the lone Minnesota goal. The Wild had 12 PIMs and the Flyers committed just one minor.

THIS DATE IN FLYERS' HISTORY: April 27, 1989 -- Pittsburgh 2 at Flyers 6
Derrick Smith (2-0-2), who provided his usual tenacious forecheck and was named the game's top star, and Tim Kerr (10-4-14 through six games), who picked up his 14th point in this series, both scored twice and the Flyers evened the best-of-seven series at 3 games apiece with a 6-2 home win. Mario Lemieux was held to two shots, zero points and was a minus-3 as he was continually frustrated by the Flyers' checking line of Smith-Dave Poulin-Scott Mellanby. Flyers' head coach Paul Holmgren said "You know what you get from Derrick Smith. He's a tremendous forechecker and a hard worker and it's nice to see his work get rewarded."

The Flyers are practicing this morning.

Lineup adjustments in the first post will be made later today.

Minnesota could be making a trade.



The Wild is down to 11 forwards right now, and so far, no callup. I've been told Fletcher has been trying to make a trade before calling up a player. I just don't know what he can do without delving into the prospect pool. And that, he has said he is unwilling to do unless it's a deal that makes sense for the future.

Flyerfan4life 01-16-2012 10:10 AM

plz dont be more of the Jan. slide plz..

lets just get back to scoring more goals then we give up..

Kaktus* 01-16-2012 10:22 AM

Who is starting in goal? Surprise me.

even thou bob is def. earning more starts then hes getting, based on play. results

Kaktus* 01-16-2012 12:27 PM

Minnesota is injured. No Koivu, Bouchard, Latendresse are all out and Backstrom might be out too.
We can shut down Heatley right?

I smell a SO, if Harding does not outplay us.

dats81 01-16-2012 12:45 PM

I have a feeling Powe will score a shorthander against us.

sa cyred 01-16-2012 12:49 PM

Gotta say, liked Powe, but a 3rd rounder was pretty good value for him.

mirimon 01-16-2012 12:55 PM

No more turnovers please.
Offense looked good against Nashville, hopefully that continues.
Giroux with a big game, breaking out of his little funk.
On d, I wonder if we'll see some different pairings. Meszaros is better when he can follow the rush. Gustafsson can't quite cover for that.
A game with Clutterbuck, Powe, Rinaldo and Zolnierczyk should have some decent hitting hopefully.
Line of Simmonds-Couturier-Read looked great. Hope Couturier's streak continues.
Schenn will have a goal as well.
Also, Matt Read will have a goal.
Look for a Rinaldo-Staubitz fight.
Like always, I'm hoping for a game with few penalties.
On d for the Wild you should have a name beginning with S or Z. Schultz-Scandella, Stoner-Spurgeon, Zanon-Zidlicky as pairings?
We've been a bit lucky playing other teams when their star players are out injured. The Wild should miss Koivu pretty badly.
Even Coburn will score a goal in this game, believe it or not.
Day ends with a 5-2 win for us.

Minnesota is injured. No Koivu, Bouchard, Latendresse are all out and Backstrom might be out too.
We can shut down Heatley right?

I smell a SO, if Harding does not outplay us.

As long as the Flyers goaltending is solid it should be an easy win. The Wild are practically an AHL team right now.

I'm pretty sure I'll be asleep by the 2nd period with the Wild coming town.

I don't even think a jinx will help the Wild.

Lineup adjustments in the first post will be made later today.

Minnesota could be making a trade.


They can have Shelley

Man, Cechmanek was the man for about 12 minutes.

Hopefully we get a W tomorrow.

Seems like you've been saying that a lot lately. You sure you don't have arthritis? Or maybe there's just a cold front about to blow through your area.

tocchet was on wip again last night and this time he didn't just elude to poor practice habits from bryz, he flat out said it. follow tocchet on twitter @realrocket22, he always wants to talk hockey and always finds time to respond to tweets. good man.

Bryz: I am out of the wood.
Homer: What can you do?

MrHockey1982 01-17-2012 10:03 AM


Bryz starts. I cannot begin to tell you how angry I will be if Bryz sucks tonight. PICK IT UP!!!
