  • October 14, 1967 -- Future Hockey Hall of Famer Brian Kilrea scored twice, including the first in team history, leading the Kings to a 4-2 home win. It was the first regular season game in the Kings' history and was played in the Long Beach Arena because the Forum did not open until December. It was the second regular season game in Flyers' history. Bill Sutherland scored 42 seconds into the game and Philly led 2-0 after one period. The Kings held a 38-16 shots advantage including 31-11 through two periods (Flyers led 2-1). LA held a 7-5 shots advantage in the third period but out-scored Philly 3-0. Doug Favell made 34 saves on 37 shots (one ENG). Kilrea scored just three goals in his NHL career but won over 1,000 games in the Juniors with the Ottawa 67s. While playing for the Kings, Kilrea requested the team demote him to Springfield of the AHL. "I just couldn't stand it there. I thought it was too hot. So I went to them and I told them that if they didn't mind, I'd like to be sent back to Springfield. They thought I was nuts to ask for it. I remember sitting in GM Larry Regan's office and he was trying to talk me out of it. Nobody had ever heard of anything like this before. I couldn't stand the hot weather. I hated it. I wanted to be closer to Ottawa."
  • November 26, 1967 -- Bernie Parent made 25 saves, seven Flyers scored and eight players had multiple points in a 7-2 home win. The Flyers led 3-0 after the opening period and 5-0 through two periods which led to the removal of goalie Wayne Rutledge (16 saves, 21 shots) for Terry Sawchuk (9 saves, 11 shots). Leon Rochefort (1-1-2) started the scoring with a PPG.
  • December 8, 1967 -- The Flyers regained sole possession of first place in the West as Doug Favell made 24 saves and Claude LaForge (1-1-2) had two points in a 3-0 win played at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. The teams combined for just one minor penalty (Joe Watson). Boston and Toronto were the only teams with better records than the expansion Flyers.
  • December 30, 1967 -- In the first NHL game played at Jack Kent Cooke's Fabulous Forum, the Flyers beat the Kings 2-0. Doug Favell made 25 saves in a nationally televised Saturday afternoon affair. Ed Hoekstra (1-1-2) scored the first goal in the building. Clarence Campbell dropped the ceremonial opening faceoff. It was the fourth facility in which these teams met in four games. Among the celebrities at opening night was actor Lorne Greene who was Master of Ceremonies.
  • December 31, 1967 -- One night after meeting in Los Angeles, the Flyers hammered the Kings 9-1 in Philly. Larry Zeidel (1-1-2) scored his first goal in the NHL since the 1953-54 season when he played for Chicago. Philly led 4-0 after one period. Brit Selby (2-0-2) scored consecutive goals to make it 6-0. Lou Angotti and Real Lemieux were main combatants in a brawl. Angotti (0-3-3), Don Blackburn (1-2-3) and Leon Rochefort (1-2-3) led the offense. Doug Favell made 37 saves. Terry Sawchuk (14 saves, 19 shots) replaced Wayne Rutledge (9 saves, 13 shots) after the first period. The Flyers began the new year atop the West Division standings.
  • January 28, 1968 -- Terry Sawchuk started against the Flyers for the first time and stopped 27 shots in a 2-0 win at Philly. Howie Menard scored 1:39 into the game then the Kings scored late in the third period.
  • February 16, 1968 -- Eddie Joyal (2-2-4) and Bill Flett (1-2-3) led Los Angeles to a 7-1 home win. Wayne Rutledge made 30 saves. The Kings scored twice in the opening minute of the second period to take a 3-0 lead.
  • February 29, 1968 -- Wayne Rutledge's 33 saves backed LA to a 3-1 win in Philly. Future Flyer Ed Joyal had a goal and an assist and was selected the game's top star. The Kings scored twice in the third period. The following day, the Spectrum was damaged when winds blew off a portion of the roof.
  • March 14, 1968 -- In a game played in Quebec (Spectrum roof damage) in front of 4,116, future Hall-of-Famers Bernie Parent (32 saves) and Terry Sawchuk (20 saves) both recorded shutouts in a 0-0 tie. It was the fifth facility in which these teams played during their first seasons.
  • March 23, 1968 -- Terry Sawchuk made 24 saves in the Kings' 4-2 home win. Howie Menard scored the GWG in the third period. Brit Selby had both Flyers' goals.
  • October 26, 1968 -- The Kings out-scored the Flyers 5-0 in the third period en route to a 6-2 home win. Real Lemieux (2-0-2), Skip Krake (1-2-3) and Bob Wall (0-3-3) led the offense and Wayne Rutledge made 19 saves.
  • November 17, 1968 -- Bernie Parent made 30 saves in Philly's 3-1 home win. The game was scoreless after two periods. Jim Johnson snapped a 1-1 tie with 3:01 remaining.

  • December 4, 1968 -- Eddie Joyal scored a natural hat trick in LA's 3-1 home win. The game was tied 1-1 despite the Kings owning a 25-5 shots advantage after two periods (finished 38-14). Dennis Roy, an NHL off ice official in Los Angeles where he was on the staff of the Canadian Consulate, served as the Flyers' backup netminder after both Doug Favell and Bernie Parent (who played and made 35 saves) had the flu. Roy wore number 1, which was Favell's number at the time.
  • December 21, 1968 -- Doug Favell made 45 saves and the Flyers skated to a 2-1 victory. The Kings held a 32-14 shot advantage after two periods (46-19 in the game) but the Flyers led 2-0. Gary Dornhoefer returned to action after missing a month due to a cracked left ankle.
  • March 1, 1969 -- Bob Wall's PPG with 0:59 to play gave the Kings a 2-2 tie in Los Angeles. Andre Lacroix scored twice in the first period to give Philly a 2-0 lead, which held up until the third period when LA scored twice. Bernie Parent made 30 saves and Gerry Desjardins stopped 31 shots.

The Flyers entered this game in third-place and one point ahead of the Kings; however, because of the format in existence, third place teams played the division winners while teams in fourth place played second place teams. Bill Sutherland (2-0-2) scored twice and was one of five players with two points. Gerry Desjardins lost despite making 36 saves.
  • November 20, 1969 -- Bernie Parent made 37 saves in the Flyers' 3-2 home win. Jim Johnson scored the GWG 42 seconds after the Kings' Eddie Shack tied the game. Gerry Desjardins stopped 38 shots. The Flyers held a 41-39 shots edge.

  • January 8, 1970 -- Gary Dornhoefer recorded the first NHL career hat trick in the Flyers' 4-1 home win. Bernie Parent made 36 saves in the win. Losing goalie Wayne Rutledge made 44 stops.
  • February 15, 1970 -- The Flyers outshot LA 55-31 and Bill Sutherland (2-1-3) scored two first period goals in a 7-1 home win.

Philly outscored LA 4-0 in the second period.
  • March 1, 1970 -- Bernie Parent made 36 saves and Jim Johnson scored with 4:37 to play in a 4-4 tie at Philly. Eddie Shack (2-0-2, 10 shots) led the Kings.
  • March 14, 1970 -- The Flyers out-scored LA 3-0 in the third period in a 5-3 win at LA. Bernie Parent made 30 saves. Simon Nolet scored the GWG.
  • March 26, 1970 -- Eddie Shack had three assists and Dennis Dejordy made 30 saves in the Kings' 3-2 home win.
  • October 29, 1970 -- Doug Favell made 34 saves and the Flyers scored three times in the third period in a 3-1 win at LA. Wayne Hillman and Earl Heiskala scored their first goals of the season to give Philly a 2-1 lead. Serge Bernie (1-1-2) added an ENG and was fined the following day by head coach Vic Stasiuk because the shot risked a potential offside it went wide of the net. Jack Norris stopped 34 shots for LA.
  • December 5, 1970 -- Simon Nolet scored on the PP with 2:12 left in a 4-4 tie at LA. Bob Pulford scored a PPG 1:03 earlier to put LA in front, 4-3. Bernie Parent made 34 saves and both Gary Dornhoefer and Bobby Clarke had three points.
  • December 19, 1970 -- Gord Labossiere of the Kings scored a PPG with 2:45 left in a 2-2 tie at LA. Doug Favell made 34 saves. It was the fifth straight game in this series played at LA.
  • January 7, 1971 -- The Kings rallied from a 4-1 deficit to tie the Flyers 5-5 in Philly. Jim Johnson (2-1-3) led the Flyers. Bill Flett had the tying goal and teammate Eddie Joyal (2-0-2) scored twice for LA. Each side was whistled for just one minor penalty (Doug Favell had the lone Flyers' infraction).
  • January 17, 1971 -- Dennis Dejordy had 33 saves in the Kings' 4-1 win in Philly. After a scoreless first period, L.A. made it 1-0 in the second period and added three goals in the third period.

  • February 17, 1971 -- Doug Favell stopped all 28 shots and Gary Dornhoefer (1-2-3) scored on a 50-footer and had three points in the Flyers' 4-0 win at L.A.
  • October 16, 1971 -- Doug Favell stopped all 43 shots and Jim Johnson broke a scoreless tie early in the third period of a 1-0 Flyers' road win. Favell's performance was a team-record for saves in a shutout until Darren Jensen made 48 saves at St Louis in 1986. LA outshot the Flyers 16-5 in the final period.
  • October 21, 1971 -- Gary Edwards made 34 saves for his first career shutout in his seventh NHL game and the Kings skated to an easy 7-0 win in the home debut of new Flyers' head coach Fred Shero. Bob Berry (2-1-3) and Real Lemieux (2-0-2) each had two goals.
  • November 18, 1971 -- Bruce Gamble made 32 saves for his first Flyers' shutout and Simon Nolet had the GWG in the Flyers' 2-0 home win. It was the fourth straight shutout in this series.
  • January 16, 1972 -- The Flyers rallied from three one-goal deficits for a 3-3 home tie. Ed Van Impe tied the score and Bobby Clarke and Bob Kelly each had two points. Both teams had 32 shots.

  • January 28, 1972 -- The Flyers acquired Ross Lonsberry, Bill Flett, Eddie Joyal and Jean Potvin for Serge Bernier, Jimmy Johnson and Bill Lesuk.
  • March 9, 1972 -- Bill Flett (3-1-4) stunned his former teammates in his return to LA as the Flyers won 5-3 in front of 6,618. Flett had asked to be traded from the Kings because the home fans booed him often. Bobby Clarke (2-3-5) gave Philly a 1-0 lead in the opening minute of the second period. The Kings scored twice in the third period and led 2-1 until the Flyers began a comeback with 9:02 to play. Flett, Clarke and Flett again scored within 40 seconds, the latter two 10 seconds apart, to give Philly a 4-2 lead. Flett and Clarke each recorded four points in a span of 3:31. Ralph Backstrom made it 4-3. Flett made it 5-3 and became the first Flyers' player to score a hat trick in one period. Flett scored two PPGs in the third period, one four seconds into the PP and the other five seconds into the PP. Backstrom (2-1-3) and ex-Flyers Jim Johnson (1-1-2) and Bill Lesuk (0-2-2) combined for seven points in the third period. The three Kings joined Clarke and Flett with 15 of the 18 individual third period points. Philly was 3-for-5 on PPs. Because Kings' owner Jack Kent Cooke was so disgusted, he demanded that Flett not be made one of the three post-game stars. Afterwards, Bobby Clarke gave Flett a spittoon with an inscription that read "Unspeakable Star of the Game."
  • October 18, 1972 -- Bill Flett (2-0-2) played the role of hero once again as his PPG with 0:31 to play gave the Flyers a 4-3 win in LA. Flett's SHG gave Philly a 2-1 lead and Dave Schultz scored 1:44 later. Doug Favell made 34 saves and Brent Hughes (0-3-3) had three assists. The Kings scored twice in the third period to even the game 3-3. The Kings held a promotion of 10-cents beer and 1-cent Pepsi and drew a crowd of 7,554 which booed Flett often in the team's home opener. The Kings fell to 1-6-0. The next night, the Philadelphia Blazers played at the Los Angeles Sharks in a WHA matchup and the announced crowd was 4,013.
  • December 21, 1972 -- Rick MacLeish (1-3-4), Bobby Clarke (1-2-3) and Bill Barber (2-1-3) led the Flyers to a 6-3 home win. Barber scored at the 0:26 mark then ten seconds later Don Saleski and Bob Berry fought. MacLeish scored the go-ahead goal late in the second period. Michel Belhumeur made 23 saves and got the win. After an unpleasant travel ordeal that took 10 hours to fly from Chicago to Philadelphia, the Flyers arrived in the Spectrum approximately 20 minutes prior to game-time. All flights out of Chicago's O'Hare Airport were canceled due to collision of two planes on a runway which killed ten people. The Flyers re-scheduled 9:30 a.m. flight out of Chicago's Midway Airport departed three hours late and needed to refuel in Cleveland. After a holding pattern, above Harrisburg, the plane landed and a chartered bus was supposed to meet a police escort near the Valley Forge Exit of the Pennsylvania Turnpike; however, the bus driver failed to meet the convoy and drove straight to Philadelphia.
  • December 30, 1972 -- The Kings won 5-3 in LA led by Bob Berry (1-2-3), Juha Widing (2-0-2) and Gilles Marotte (0-3-3). The Kings' Bill Lesuk was tossed as third man in when Bob Kelly and Terry Harper fought.
  • January 11, 1973 -- Don Kozak scored with exactly one minute to play, Bob Berry added two goals and Rogie Vachon made 30 saves in the Kings' 3-2 win at Philly. The Flyers led 2-0 on a pair of PPGs with under five to play in the second period.
  • February 7, 1973 -- Rogie Vachon made 31 saves and Ralph Backstrom had the GWG in the Kings' 2-1 home win. Bobby Taylor made 33 saves. There were three fights including Andre Dupont-Terry Harper 11 seconds after serving minors.
  • March 1, 1973 -- Rogie Vachon made 29 saves in LA's 2-0 win in Philly. Frank St. Marseille scored in the second period, the game's only tally until an ENG.
  • October 20, 1973 -- Bob Nevin (2-0-2) had two goals and Rogie Vachon made 17 saves in the Kings' 3-0 home win. Vachon started 6-0-0 against the Flyers but finished 6-8-3 in his Kings' career. LA outshot Philly 32-17 including 24-7 through two periods. The Flyers were issued a minor for a lineup error then Tom Bladon had a high-stick minor later in the opening minute of the game but the Kings did not score. The Flyers had 88 PIMs (63 in the first period) to LA's 54 PIMs. At the 5:54 mark, fights included Orest Kindrachuk-Vic Venasky and Dave Schultz-Gilles Marotte. Bob Kelly-Neil Komadoski fought later in the first period. Don Saleski-Dan Maloney had the third separate fight, by time, in the opening period. Andre Dupont-Don Kozak fought in the second period. Ross Lonsberry-Terry Harper fought in the third period. The game's last fight was between Kindrachuk and Komadoski. The Kings would not win at home in this series again until 1985.
  • November 8, 1973 -- Juha Widing scored a late goal and Gary Edwards made 33 saves in the Kings' 3-2 win, their sixth straight against the Flyers in this series.
  • November 14, 1973 --Tom Bladon (1-1-2) scored the GWG 28 seconds after the Kings tied the game at 4-4 in Philly's 5-4 home win. Bobby Clarke scored twice. Rogie Vachon, who won his first six starts as a member of the Kings in this series, lost for the first time and finished 6-8-3 against the Flyers while with Los Angeles. As a member of Los Angeles, Detroit and Boston, Vachon had a record of 1-14-5 in his last 20 starts against the Flyers (he started his career 13-4-3 against Philly).
  • January 19, 1974 -- Bernie Parent had his ninth shutout of the season as he made 17 saves and the Flyers recorded a 2-0 home victory. Ed Van Impe (1-1-2) scored 29 seconds into the game and assisted on Bill Barber's ENG.

Los Angeles Times columnist Jim Murray wrote of the Flyers "They say before the Flyers sign a man, they put him alone in a room with a bobcat and he doesn't come out until he makes it meow. It works. They are the champions of hockey."
  • March 16, 1975 -- Bernie Parent made 26 saves in the Flyers' 3-0 home win aired nationally on NBC. It was Parent's 35th shutout with the Flyers. Parent was a game-time decision after being removed the prior night when hit in the collarbone in a game at Toronto. Tom Bladon and Andre Dupont gave the Flyers a 2-0 lead and Bobby Clarke (0-2-2) and Ross Lonsberry (1-1-2) each had two points. The win began a 10-0-1 stretch that concluded the regular season.

The Kings were outshot 16-5 in the second period despite having 10 minutes of powerplay time. Philly finished a four-game/five-night road trip with a 2-0-2 record.
  • September 29, 1976 -- Dave Schultz was traded by Philadelphia for Los Angeles' 4th round pick (Yves Guillemette) in the 1977 Amateur Draft and 2nd choice (later traded to Colorado - Colorado selected Merlin Malinowski) in the 1978 Amateur Draft.

  • October 10, 1976 -- Ross Lonsberry's 20-footer was the game's lone goal and Bernie Parent made 18 saves in the Flyers' 1-0 home win. Philly outshot LA 13-1 in the second period when Lonsberry scored and outshot LA 23-18. The game marked the return of fan favorite Dave Schultz who was greeted with a standing ovation and signs of admiration. Schultz, however, was among seven players ejected as there were two bench-clearing brawls which led to $9,750 in fines. With about three minutes left in the first period, after some chippy and nasty play, LA's Dave Hutchinson high-sticked Mel Bridgman which prompted Moose Dupont to lead a charge off the bench. Dupont knocked out Bob Murdoch while Jack McIlhargey walloped Hutchinson. During this brawl, Schultz fought Paul Holmgren. When order was restored, three Flyers (Dupont, Holmgren and McIlhargey) and two Kings (Hutchinson and Schultz) were tossed. With about four minutes left in the second period, there was another altercation which included the ejections the Flyers' Bob Kelly (suspended one game along with Dupont) and the Kings' Russ Walker. Kings' coach Bob Pulford, who was replaced by GM Jake Milford, was the first coach in nine years to be tossed from a game when he grabbed linseman John Brown and afterwards said "I pushed him? No! I touched him. I should have done more." Schultz said "It was a typical Flyers' brawl, four against one."

  • December 30, 1976 -- Wayne Stephenson made 22 saves and Bobby Clarke and Andre Dupont scored in the Flyers 2-0 shutout at Los Angeles.

  • December 1, 1977 -- Reggie Leach's GWG with 3:50 to play snapped a tie and Wayne Stephenson made 32 stops in Philly's 4-2 win at Los Angeles. Bob Dailey (1-1-2) had two points. An opening period fight between Paul Holmgren and Dave Hutchison was heated. Both head coaches criticized officials after the game. Fred Shero said "The teams played 50 minutes of terrific hockey then the officiating almost threw it away. The referee called dumb penalties on both teams at the end of the game." In a span of 2:28 late in the third period, with the score tied 3-3, seven minor penalties were called including four against the Flyers. The GWG was not a PPG. Kings' head coach Ron Stewart griped about the referee and linesmen on different situations. The Flyers ended the night with an NHL best 15-4-3 record.

Philly led 3-0 with five shots on goal at the 4:31 mark. Bobby Clarke had three assists and registered points in his 20th consecutive appearance (interrupted by a nine-game absence with a broken thumb). The victory gave the Flyers 101 points in the standings but came with a price as Rick MacLeish suffered an 88-stitch cut to his throat. MacLeish lay in a vulnerable position on the ice while attempting to block a shot, when Marcel Dionne accidentally skated over the prone player causing massive blood loss through a cut described as 3-to-4" deep. MacLeish was fortunate that the Flyers' team doctor was on the trip, something that was a rarity at the time, as the closest hospital was at least 45 minutes away.

Wayne Stephenson made 34 saves and Bill Barber (1-2-3) led the offense. Ken Linseman, whose goal made it 3-1 with 10 seconds to play in the second period, said afterwards "We can scare a lot of teams when we fight." The donnybrook began when the Kings' Randy Holt retaliated to Blake Dunlop's comment of "Screw off!" After the game, Holt said "No way someone like him is going to tell me that." The Flyers had 194 PIMs (188/4/2 by period) and the Kings had 186 (184/2/0 by period). The Flyers had 29 penalties (26/2/1 by period) and the Kings had 25 (24/1/0 by period).

Holt was suspended two games and set NHL records for most penalties issued to a player in a game with nine [Chris Nilan had ten in a game in 1991] and most PIMs by a player in one game with 67 (a minor, 3 majors, two 10-minute misconducts, 3 game misconducts), 57 of which came when the first period expired. Tossed from the game were Bathe (team record 55 minutes), Holmgren (37 PIMs), Bridgman (35 PIMs), Behn Wilson (34 PIMs) and Bob Kelly (25 PIMs) of the Flyers and Holt (67 PIMs), Jensen (35 PIMs), Bert Wilson (32 PIMs), Mark Heaslip (25 PIMs) and Dave Taylor (25 PIMs).

Marcel Dionne suffered an 18-stitch cut to his forehead and nose in a scrum while jockeying for position and later said "I'm short. It wasn't intentional. He (Frank Bathe) asked me if I was hurt." Late in the first period, Behn Wilson was tossed from the game after he was violently cross-checked from behind by Bert Wilson and while the Flyers' Wilson was restrained by officials, Jack McIlhargey then fought the Kings' Wilson which led to no power play but 45 PIMs to the Flyers and 15 to the Kings.

After Kings' assistant coach Ralph Backstrom said "The Flyers play roller derby hockey," Flyers' head coach Pat Quinn responded "I think they were the dirty team tonight. It's just an alibi for them to say that they were just defending themselves against the tactics of the Flyers. That's just a pile of crap." Dan Bonar (2-0-2) scored 2 PPGs for LA. The slumping Flyers were 2-7-2 in the previous 11 games.

In the opening minute of play, Zezel (four PIMs) and Kings' goalie Bob Janecyk (seven PIMs) had an altercation which led to the ejection of Kennedy as third man in.

I couldn't believe the Kings could trade a young defenseman for a 31-year old forward. I thought that was kind of ridiculous. I was really ticked off. Actually, I still am. I love Los Angeles. I have a house here. Luc (Robitaille) called me right away. He was very upset. I've spoken to their (Flyers) PR people. They're expecting me to be the next Mark Howe. Woah!

I made a note about Chris Nilan's ten penalties to reflect that Holt's mark has since been broken. Thanks for the contribution. :sarcasm:

onlylordsvsmorebp 03-22-2014 07:05 PM

kings have been rolling but have three losses in their last 5 games.

dont know if that means anything or not.

dont really care how they are playing.

all i care about is how we are playing and i am confident that we can go toe to toe with anybody in this league right now and i cant wait for this game.

In before anyone brings up Bert and Ernie's (aka Richie and Carts) first official visit back to Philly since winning the Cup in 2012! Yes, this is Richie's 2nd visit back and Carts was injured during that Columbus game but this time, they won a Cup.

Got tickets to that game!

blinds 03-22-2014 11:54 PM

This game scares me a little, Kings play that same boring game that the Devils play. We did well against the Blues, hoping they keep it up.

SolidSnakeUS 03-23-2014 02:18 AM

Keep the ball rolling guys!

Not really rolling anymore. Going to be a another battle close game possibly need another comeback

F L Y E R S 03-23-2014 08:39 AM

Had this game circled when schedule came out. Will be in attendance with my orange Richards jersey. Last time Kings were in Philly it got chippy. Hope Flyers absolutely dominate them.

StandingCow 03-23-2014 08:48 AM

Flyers have no breathing room in the standings... even with our 5 game winning streak.

Let's hope they can keep winning.

They kind of do now though... effectively have 4 points breathing room, as though Washington and Detroit are the teams tied (in points only) for the last wildcard spot the Flyers ROW is so much better it is almost impossible if the Flyers tied with either the Flyers would not go through.

Also the Flyers now have 2 games in hand on Washington, Toronto and the Rangers... they could lose both ad still would have a better point % that those three, and Detroit and Columbus even if the last 2 won their next two. (would be even in % with Detroit but better on ROW.)

I imagine 92 points will be the likely figure for a great chance of playoffs:

Botson: In
Pittsburgh: In

Tampa: 6 points in 11. (3-8-0)
Montreal: 7 points in 10 (3-6-1)
Flyers: 9 points in 12 (4-7-1)
Rangers: 10 points in 10 (5-5-0)
Toronto: 12 points in 10 (5-3-2 or 6-4-0)
Detroit: 13 points in 12 (6-5-1)
Columbus: 14 points in 12 (6-4-2 or 7-5-0)
Washington: 13 points in 10 (6-3-1)

So of the 8 teams battling for the 6 playoff spots the Flyers have to get far fewer points (2-3 wins less over 10-12 than the other teams) and the teams below all have to have a winning record... and the Flyers a record worse than 4-7-1, in order for the Flyers to not make the playoffs. And then if we tie for wildcard with any team apart from the Rangers the Flyers are in anyway pretty much due to ROW.

Not guaranteed yet ofc; but if the Flyers get 2 points vs LA they would be virtually certain of making the playoffs, as while the would still need ~3-7-1 through the last 11 to get to 92 points, it would also require virtually every team below us having a winning record as well.

Appleyard 03-23-2014 09:17 AM

I mean, the Flyers started the year 3-7-0... so if they win vs LA they pretty much have to be as terrible as they were in the first 10 games of the season to not make the playoffs.

Which they have shown can happen...

But I have great faith, the Flyers have shown they can beat the best teams in the league. When they play well, they ARE the best team in the league

Hiesenberg 03-23-2014 09:57 AM

The reason this team looks like it does is because of defense. Its playing well and the goalie is covering for any chances that get through. When they weren't playing well the defense was the issue. Will this defense play like this until the end? Who knows, I'm not sure if they are just hot or with the addition of Amac, they have actually improved and this is what we will see.

the defense is playing well-way less stupid turnovers and tighter checking.

i think grossman has been playing well too,playing harder and finishing checks.

cant believe this is the same team that at times this year simply could not clear their own zone.
i remember the game against the devils when they got pinned down for seemingly an entire period.

now they are playing well in our end.its like night and day.

i like it.hope they keep it up.

Flyerfan4life 03-23-2014 12:38 PM

proly gunna miss this entire game before i get home from work..

hope for a Flyers win, so it'll be worth it watching on DVR.

BackWithaVengeance 03-23-2014 01:25 PM

I enjoy the winning streak just as much as you all do but I bet a win against the Rangers come next Wednesday would just do wonders for their already high confidence. They really need to make sure, they can beat them.

Especially when the first round matchup pretty much looks like we'll play the Rangers.

King Forsberg 03-23-2014 03:24 PM

McGinn is up. Hopefully he gets to play some minutes with Downie out. We may need him come playoff time.

Interesting... though he was pretty much the only choice with VDV injured.

Wonder if he plays with Couts and Read to 'spread the talent' or if they just plonk him on the 4th.


Just realised Raffl has a ~58% faceoff%... what can he not do?

At this point I wouldn't be suprised if he gets Kapanen'd and succeeds as a defender.

He's incredibly versatile.

Having him and Read on the same roster is awesome.... both can play all three forward positions, are great PKers, provide speed, grit and that never say die attitude, can both play up and down the lineup, seem to click with everyone they play with. And are still extremely valuable when not producing points.

The kind of players who help win cups.

Which happened under a different coach and system. It's really irrelevant IMO.

I rather just slot McGinn into Downie's spot, hopefully he can pick up the garbage better & bring the physical presence. Raffl's fine on the 4th line despite the cries on here every game about it.

The Couturier Effect 03-23-2014 08:20 PM

Raffl is a Swiss Army knife for us...or Austrian Army knife, I guess :sarcasm: *rimshot*

And I think I'd rather see McGinn on the 3rd line. I don't think he's a good fit for the 4th line. I guess we'll see tomorrow.
