April 17, 1977 -- In Game 4 at Toronto, Reggie Leach's (2-1-3) slapper with 50 seconds left in OT gave the Flyers what is arguably the franchise's greatest comeback, an improbable 6-5 OT win. The Flyers faced a daunting challenge as they trailed by three goals with about seven minutes to play, three men tossed from the lineup and on a penalty kill. Mel Bridgman scored from his stomach on the PK with 5:49 remaining, Tom Bladon (1-2-3) scored with 1:49 left, then Bobby Clarke (2-0-2) tied the score with 16 seconds left in regulation. Lanny McDonald (4-1-5) put the Leafs ahead 5-2 with 7:16 to play in the third period with Gary Dornhoefer and Ross Lonsberry in the box serving minor penalties handed at 12:20. The two Flyers were tossed from the game by referee Bruce Hood for arguing his calls. Earlier, Moose Dupont was ejected for leaving the penalty box and chasing a goading Tiger Williams after a fight with Mike Pelyk; Dupont saw a stick (Mike Palmateer's) hit teammate Gary Dornhoefer in the head. Philly had 63 PIMs to the Leafs' 12. Darryl Sittler (0-3-3), who had three assists, said "They did it to us in the last game game. I didn't think it would happen again." Toronto coach Red Kelly said "It's hard to understand. It's hard to believe." Bernie Parent kissed Leach's stick prior to OT and then said "It worked. It went in for a goal off the good luck stick." Toronto held a 45-43 shots edge including 8 apiece in OT. Wayne Stephenson made 37 saves. Mike Palmateer stopped 39 shots. The Leafs went 3-for-9 on PPs and the Flyers went 1-for-3. The win tied the PO series at 2-2 with the road team winning each game.

  • 2010 -- Oct. 23 -- Mike Richards (1-2-3) and Ville Leino scored their first goals of the season in the final three minutes of the opening period helping the Flyers to a 5-2 home win.

  • 2010 -- Dec. 9 -- Danny Briere (2-1-3) scored twice and Brian Boucher made 31 saves in the Flyers' 4-1 win at Toronto.

  • 2011 -- Feb. 14 -- Kris Versteeg was sent to Philadelphia in exchange for the Flyers' 1st (Stuart Percy) and 3rd round (Josh Leivo) draft picks in 2011. Versteeg became the first Flyers' player to wear #10 in a regular season game since John LeClair in 2004.
  • 2011 -- Mar. 3 --Darryl Boyce scored the go-ahead goal with 4:30 left in regulation and James Reimer stopped 28 shots in the Leafs' 3-2 win at Philly.

Kris Versteeg (2-0-2), in his first game against his former team, scored twice for the Flyers. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZ1bOrcEnVI
  • 2011 -- Mar. 10 -- Brian Boucher made 27 saves and the line of James van Riemsdyk, Claude Giroux (1-1-2) and Jeff Carter had four points and 13 shots in the Flyers' 3-2 win at Toronto. Mike Komisarek was ejected 3:45 into the game for boarding and Andrej Meszaros gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead during the 5-minute major. Darroll Powe made it 2-0 and Giroux's goal gave Philly a 3-1 advantage. With the victory, the Flyers had 90 points which was the sixth highest total in team history through 67 games. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrLeqjEABHk

  • 2011 -- Oct. 24 -- Jaromir Jagr (2-1-3), who scored his first NHL goal since April 6, 2008, and Scott Hartnell (2-1-3) each scored twice in the Flyers' 4-2 home win. Jagr and Hartnell also had PPGs which gave Philly a 2-1 lead. Sergei Bobrovsky made 24 saves. Chris Pronger suffered a damaging eye injury from Mikhail Grabovski's stick ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHiYMvnVyXc ). Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ryb5OQj07XE&feature=fvst .

Great GDT!

Well, I guess I can stop predicting shutouts for now.

King Forsberg 02-08-2012 03:44 PM

Grabovski returns to the scene of the crime.

Let's win this one for Prongs.

BillDineen 02-08-2012 03:50 PM

Flyers fans be thankful. We have the opportunity to watch some of the greatest young players in the NHL: Gardiner, L. Schenn, Kulemin, Franson, Colborne etc. The list is endless. All of them are far superior to JVR, Schenn or Couturier and Homer would have to put together a huge package to trade for any of them. Be forewarned though, you may switch your alliances and become a part of Leafs Nation after watching these marvels of hockey.

If you don't believe me, go and read some Leafs posts. They will convince you.

Shutout and 5 goals for.

I can feel it in my marrow.

mirimon 02-08-2012 04:52 PM

Giroux with a hattrick. We win 5-2.

Edit: Obviously, after we've pulled the goalie the last minutes when we're up 5-0 just to practice our 6-5 play (which, as you can see, definitely needs some fine tuning). Would that count as a shutout?

Flyerfan4life 02-08-2012 05:10 PM

holy **** we better WIN in front of the home crowd...

another ugly loss and it could start raining debris on the ice to go along with the boooo's.

dont wanna think about it, come on LADS, just win it.

SolidSnakeUS 02-08-2012 06:10 PM

So another shooting game but lose in the SO? Check...

MsWoof 02-08-2012 07:21 PM

I bet Bryz starts again and Bob gets one of the weekend starts. Laffs are playing good hockey these days, something that needs to stop.

PALE PWNR 02-08-2012 07:22 PM

Schenn 2 goals, Simmonds has another 3 point night, and Giroux has a 3 point night.

flyersfan187 02-08-2012 07:24 PM

This will be a tough game for them. Just play strong D and keep the pressure up on the offensive end.

Leaf fans are a strange bunch.

If they're not talking about trade proposals, they're talking about how they're the center of the hockey world, and people love to hate on them. I don't know?.....like I said strange

Damn this is when having the basic cable package really sucks.

I dont have TSN and Gamecenter will block it. Grrreeeaaattt

MiamiScreamingEagles 02-08-2012 10:45 PM

That sentence may be in need of a comma after "not." Otherwise, it has a different meaning. "If not elsewhere" could be interpreted as both being teammates elsewhere. "If not, elsewhere" could mean that Luke Schenn could be traded elsewhere if a deal with the Flyers can't be reached.

FWIW, the full article...


Luke will somehow join Brayden in orange and black by the Feb. 27 trade deadline, if not elsewhere.


Luke Schenn has a natural inclination to watch out for his kid brother Brayden.

And while that task would be a lot easier if both were on the same bench for the Philadelphia Flyers, that’s not quite the close proximity that Luke is thinking of right now. While gainfully employed by the Maple Leafs, there continues to be speculation Luke will somehow join Brayden in orange and black by the Feb. 27 trade deadline, if not elsewhere.

Something with the Leafs and Flyers was cooking a few weeks ago for forward James van Riemsdyk, before the Flyer winger suffered a concussion. He remains out of their lineup, while Philly is still looking for depth on defence after losing Chris Pronger.

For Thursday at least, the Schenns will be on opposite sides of the Wells Fargo Center. The six-foot, 200-pound Brayden’s place on the Flyers was unclear in the first meeting back in November.

“Knock on wood, he’s playing (regularly) there now and he’s healthy,” Luke said. “That’s good to see. I’m excited to be going down there and looking forward to having dinner with him (Wednesday night).”

zbryne 02-08-2012 11:02 PM

Flyers better put on the big boy pants or it's going to get ugly fast.

Can we just take a lead in a game once again, please?!

Krishna 02-09-2012 02:32 AM

Bryz better get the start or this will be me all game

MsWoof 02-09-2012 06:51 AM

Awesome, this is on TSN, finally some impartial commentators!

Flyersfan139 02-09-2012 07:34 AM

They really need a win here. I hope Bryz gets the start.
