FLYERS vs. SENATORS' SERIES' HISTORY:
  • The Flyers regular season W-L-T-OTL record is 30-22-8-2.
  • At Philadelphia, the Flyers W-L-T-OTL record is 18-10-2-1.
  • At Ottawa, the Flyers W-L-T-OTL record is 12-12-6-1. Since the 1998-99 season, including playoffs, the Flyers are 5-14-5-1 in their last 25 games at Ottawa.
  • Ottawa won playoff series in 2002 (4-1) and 2003 (4-2) for an 8-3 record.

1992-1995:
  • November 15, 1992 -- Eric Lindros had his first NHL hat trick (highlights -- http://flyers.nhl.tv/team/console.js...d=774&id=42699 ) and the Crazy Eights combined for twelve points as the Flyers won 7-2 in the first ever meeting between these franchises. Mark Recchi (1-4-5) and Brent Fedyk (1-2-3) joined Lindros (3-1-4) in 3+ point efforts. Lindros scored the first goal by either team in this series, just 41 seconds into the game. Dominic Roussel made 31 stops. With five seconds left, Lindros and former Flyer Brad Marsh clashed --

  • December 5, 1992 -- The teams played at Ottawa for the first time and the Senators won 3-2 in the Ottawa Civic Center. Jamie Baker had the GWG in the third period. The Sens had just 16 shots in the game. A warrant was issued for the arrest of Eric Lindros after a woman accused him of spitting beer in her face on a nightclub dance floor. On February 8, 1993, Lindros was found not guilty after Justice Rhys Morgan issued the acquittal in Oshawa, Ontario.
  • February 9, 1993 -- Kevin Dineen (3-0-3), Mark Recchi (1-3-4), Pelle Eklund (0-3-3) and Eric Lindros (2-0-2) led the Flyers to an 8-1 win at Ottawa. Tommy Soderstrom had 27 saves. The Senators entered the game with a record of 7-46-4.
  • October 27, 1993 -- Rod Brind'Amour scored twice in a 5-2 road win. Five Flyers had two-point games. The Flyers took a 3-0 lead in the middle period but the Senators scored twice with special teams' goals to narrow their deficit to one goal. Vyatcheslav Butsayev scored with under four to play in the third to give Philly a two-goal lead. Tommy Soderstrom was replaced after 20 minutes (Flyers led 2-0) due to ill health and the following day he had tests performed on his heart which led to a fifth operation. Soderstrom suffered Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, something that kept him sidelined the previous season, too.
  • January 11, 1994 -- Andre Faust was promoted from Hershey (AHL) earlier in the day and then scored the GWG with 5:06 left in the final period of a Philly's 4-1 home win. The Flyers outshot Ottawa 16-4 in the first period but trailed 1-0. With the score even at 1-1, Claude Boivin of the Flyers was handed a five minute major for slamming Brad Shaw into the boards, which led to a fight between Al Conroy and Sylvain Turgeon. Boivin was traded to Ottawa about two months later for a disenchanted Mark Lamb who requested a trade from the Senators. Dominc Roussel made 24 stops.
  • February 8, 1994 -- The teams played to a 3-3 tie in the Ottawa Civic Centre. The Senators' Vladimir Ruzicka scored a PPG with 2:47 remaining in the third period. Bob Wilkie scored the first goal of the game, the only goal of his Flyers' career and the second and final tally in his NHL career. The tie ended the Flyers then-team record six game losing streak.
  • March 10, 1994 -- Eric Lindros (1-5-6) and Mark Recchi (1-3-4) led the way in an 8-2 Flyers' win. Rod Brind'Amour scored twice in less than a minute to give Philly a 2-0 lead; Andre Faust also contributed two goals. Craig Billington (5/10) gave up five goals and Mark Laforest (12/15) surrendered three. Ottawa had eight PPs to the Flyers' two. The Flyers led 4-0 after one period and 7-0 after 40 minutes.
  • September 27, 1994 -- The teams got involved in a preseason brawl -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxZp7na5Xdw
  • February 6, 1995 -- Don Beaupre made 34 saves in the Senators' 3-0 win in the Ottawa Civic Centre. Alexandre Daigle had a goal and an assist in the first period including the only goal Ottawa would need at the 1:11 mark. The Sens added an ENG. With just three wins in the first ten games after the lockout was lifted, the Flyers made the blockbuster trade with Montreal (key components: John LeClair/Eric Desjardins for Mark Recchi) three days later.
  • March 16, 1995 -- John LeClair and Rod Brind'Amour scored in the final three minutes and Ron Hextall faced just 16 shots as the Flyers recorded a 3-1 victory in Philadelphia. Craig MacTavish's second period goal evened the game 1-1. MacTavish was the only player with a multiple-point game.
  • April 26, 1995 -- Ottawa scored three PPGs in a 5-2 win in Philadelphia. Steve Larouche had three (1-2-3) of his 18 career points in this game. The Flyers held the team's season awards festivities prior to the game -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcUY0D2ZrFc
  • October 29, 1995 -- John LeClair (1-2-3) and Rod Brind'Amour, who tied a career high with four assists, led the Flyers to a 5-2 win in the Spectrum. Philly led 3-0 in the third but Steve Duchesne and Alexandre Daigle narrowed the score to 3-2 before Eric Lindros scored with under six minutes to play. Garth Snow made 18 saves for the win.

  • November 16, 1995 -- The Flyers won 5-3 at home as Rod Brind'Amour tied a career-high with four assists and Eric Lindros scored twice, including the GWG, in his first game in two weeks. Lindros missed the prior seven games with a sprained left knee. Lindros scored 97 seconds into the game and broke a 3-3 early in the third period. The Flyers scored three times in the first six minutes of the third period including the final two within 53 seconds. Mike Bales surrendered all five goals then was relieved by Don Beaupre.

1996-1999:
  • March 1, 1996 -- Shjon Podein's third period goal snapped a 2-2 tie and Philly won 3-2 in their first game at the Corel Centre, Ottawa's new home. Podein scored twice in the victory. The GWG was controversial as the Sens protested that the puck never crossed the line but replays showed that the puck barely made its way past Damian Rhodes.
  • March 27, 1996 -- John LeClair had three points in the Flyers' 4-2 win at Ottawa. Eric Desjardins' PPG in the third period snapped a 2-2 tie. Philly outshot Ottawa 36-19 including 25-10 over the last two periods. Rod Brind'Amour and Randy Cunneyworth fought.
  • November 30, 1996 -- The Flyers dominated the last two periods in a 4-3 win at Ottawa. Philly held a 31-9 shot advantage and they out-scored Ottawa 4-2 in the last 40 minutes. Rod Brind'Amour, Dainius Zubrus and Shjon Podein each had a goal and an assist. Dan Kordic and Dennis Vial fought in a lengthy battle -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISL_zCr4UAw
  • February 13, 1997 -- Mikael Renberg's third period goal snapped a 2-2 tie in Philly's 4-2 home win. John LeClair assisted on the last two goals. Garth Snow made 18 saves for the win. Scott Daniels-Phil Crowe and Daniel Lacroix-Denny Lambert fought at the same time; Lambert was tossed for instigating a fight in the second period battle. Eric Lindros suffered a back injury and missed the next two games which eventually resulted in a libel lawsuit against a Philadelphia sports radio station when a host said Lindros was suspended for showing up drunk to the following game. The parties reached a settlement with the station making an on-air apology and contributing to a charity.
  • February 26, 1997 -- The Legion of Doom tied a Flyers' team record for most points by one line with 16 in Philadelphia's 8-5 victory at Ottawa. Eric Lindros (1-6-7), Mikael Renberg (2-3-5) and John LeClair (3-1-4) combined for six goals and 10 assists. Lindros' six assists set a franchise mark. The score was tied 4-4 after one period. The Flyers rallied from a 5-4 deficit to take a 6-5 lead into the third period when Rod Brind'Amour scored a PPG.

  • April 6, 1997 -- Pat Falloon scored with 22 seconds left in the second period and Philly won 2-1 at home. Mikael Renberg was penalized seven seconds into the game and Trent Klatt scored his fifth SHG of the season to give the Flyers a 1-0 lead.
  • October 3, 1997 -- Eric Lindros (2-1-3) and John LeClair (1-2-3) each had three points in the Flyers' 5-3 home win. Trent Klatt scored the GWG 7:21 into the final period. Ron Hextall made 29 saves. Each team had 32 shots.
  • November 8, 1997 -- The Flyers scored three times in the second period of a 4-3 win in Ottawa. Philly recorded two goals in a span of 36 seconds in the final 1:19 of the middle period to take a 4-1 lead. The Senators scored twice in the third period off Garth Snow who made 23 saves for the win.
  • November 11, 1997 -- Ron Hextall (16 saves) recorded the 20th shutout of his career and Paul Coffey scored the game's lone goal in a 1-0 victory in Philadelphia. Ottawa was outshot 12-2 in the first period and 27-16 in the game.
  • January 3, 1998 -- Eric Lindros (2-2-4), Rod Brind'Amour (2-2-4) and Trent Klatt (0-4-4) led Philly to the team's 12th straight win in this series, 7-2 at Ottawa. Lindros scored on his first two shots on goal which gave the Flyers a 2-0 lead after one period. Vinnie Prospal suffered a fractured left fibula, while battling Lance Pitlick for the puck, and missed the rest of the regular season and playoffs.
  • January 17, 1998 -- Alexandre Daigle was traded to Philadelphia for Vaclav Prospal, Pat Falloon and Dallas' 2nd round choice (previously acquired, Ottawa selected Chris Bala) in the 1998 Entry Draft.
  • October 29, 1998 -- The Senators scored three first period goals in a 3:40 span, including consecutive tallies by Andreas Johansson in 75 seconds during the last 1:27 of the opening period and halted the Flyers 12-game win streak in this series with a 3-1 win at Ottawa. Damian Rhodes made 28 saves and defeated the Flyers for the first time in his career after an 0-8-0 start. Eric Lindros' SHG spoiled the shutout with 9:21 to go and increased his offensive production in this series to 19 goals and 22 assists in 22 games. Lindros leveled Andreas Dackell in the left corner with 4:47 left the first period. Dackell fell to the ice and was motionless for several minutes, his face bloodied as he was mmobilized and carried from the ice on a stretcher. "I felt horrible. No one likes to see that. I just went in to finish my check and he ducked and twisted. I'm not really sure what happened to him or how he got hurt," said Lindros. Clip of the hit -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgmfsDbJG9s

  • November 1, 1998 -- Damian Rhodes made 25 saves, Steve Martins broke a 3-3 tie in the third period and Vinnie Prospal had three assists to lead the Senators to a 5-4 win in Philly. Chris Murray gave the Sens a 3-1 lead with four-tenths of a second left in the middle period. The Flyers tied the score in the third before Martins and Radek Bonk scored 1:43 apart. John LeClair scored twice in the third period.
  • January 18, 1999 -- JVB stopped 36 shots, including 19 in the middle period, and the Flyers clubbed the Senators 5-0 at Ottawa. Beezer had his sixth shutout of this season and 35th of his career. Ottawa was on an 11-game unbeaten streak at 8-0-3. Eric Desjardins, Eric Lindros and Jody Hull each had a goal and an assist. It was the fifth time in the last six games that season in which the Flyers shutout their opponent (Toronto was the only team to score in the stretch of five shutouts in six games). The Senators were 0-for-7 on the PP. Roger Neilson won for the 400th time in regular season NHL play.
  • February 20, 1999 -- Eric Lindros' consecutive game streak with at least one point was stopped at a team-record-tying 18 games in the Senators 4-1 win at Ottawa; Lindros shared the team record with Bobby Clarke (1975). Ron Tugnutt made 33 saves. Radek Bonk had a goal and an assist. Ottawa scored three third period goals.
  • March 4, 1999 -- Alexei Yashin (3-1-4) recorded his fifth NHL hat trick and Damian Rhodes registered a shutout by making 24 saves in Ottawa's 5-0 win in Philadelphia. The Senators scored four third period goals including three times in the final 2:55. Jean-Marc Pelletier, celebrating his 21st birthday, made his only career appearance for the Flyers and gave up five goals on 29 shots. Pelletier was beaten 1:00 into the game by Yashin's 30th, on a weak goal shot from behind the net and deflected in off a skate, but held the Senators off the board until 3:59 expired in the third period when Yashin added his 31st on the PP. Said Eric Lindros "I didn't think we played well. We had some bad luck at the start. We didn't start anything going the other way. We didn't perform well. There's not a whole lot of things to talk about right now, we just didn't play well. We have to have some fight in us. This is embarrassing. We've been in a rut for a long time. We have to start fresh. Where we are in the standings right now is besides the point."

  • October 2, 1999 -- Patrick Lalime made 17 saves in Ottawa's 3-0 win in Philly, the season opener for the Flyers. Radek Bonk scored in the opening period and the Senators added two PPGs in the middle period. Mark Eaton became the first Philadelphia-area native to play for the Flyers. Simon Gagne played in his first NHL regular season game. Daniel Alfredsson was named Ottawa's captain that day. Eric Desjardins missed the game after suffereing a preseason injury, he would play in the remaining 81 regular season games and all 18 playoff games (99/100). Rod Brind'Amour (foot fracture) had his consecutive games played streak terminated at 484.
  • November 28, 1999 -- The teams played to a 3-3 tie at Ottawa when Shawn McEachern scored a PPG with 18 seconds left to play in the third period, six seconds after a penalty was called on Luke Richardson. The Sens held a 12-3 shots advantage in the third while the Flyers had a 6-2 edge in OT. Ron Tugnutt suffered a knee injury in the game and was replaced by Patrick Lalime. Prior to the game, at a team breakfast, Bob Clarke addressed the Flyers to dispel a rumor that Eric Lindros was involved in a trade to the Carolina Hurricanes.

  • January 20, 2000 -- Valeri Zelepukin and Shawn McEachern swapped second period goals and the teams played to a 1-1 tie in Philadelphia. Zelepukin's goal, from Chris Therien, came 34 seconds after Ottawa took a 1-0 lead. Ron Tugnutt and Brian Boucher played goal.

  • March 28, 2000 -- Kevin Miller scored consecutive goals as part of a third period four-goal outburst in the Senators 5-2 win. Tom Barrasso made 30 saves including 18-for-18 in the first period. The Flyers scored twice in the second period within a 14- second span.

With the score 2-0, Keith Primeau and Wade Redden fought -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r64UfvtnPWw
  • March 26, 2001 -- Alexei Yashin scored with 6:59 left in a 3-3 tie at Ottawa. Philly lost the services of leading goal-scorer Keith Primeau for the rest of the regular season with a Grade 2 sprain of the MCL when his skate hit a rut after he was hit by Chris Phillips.

Recchi added "He's known for it. It might not come from our team, it might come from some other team, but he will because he's cheap and he does stupid stuff like that. He'd better learn to protect himself." Havlat was eventually suspended for two games, his second suspension of the season, and said "I don't feel good about what I did. I wanted to hit him, but not in the face. It was a bad decision and we'll see what happens."

Right back at it again tomorrow. Hopefully we didn't score all the goals we're going to this weekend, and hopefully we gave up all the goals we are going to. Let's make it two in a row!!!

Readyrock 04-03-2009 11:10 PM

If Upshall was a Flyer, this would be an easy win.

Great job, MSE!

I hope the Flyers come out guns ablazing tomorrow night. But just for ***** and giggles, let's see 60 minutes of play.

I'm not going to see a moment of this one, so I want to come home to see a win. A good, solid win.

Great GDT MSE!!
WE neeeeeeeeed 2 wins it would be huge!!!
Let's Go FLYERS!!!!:yo:
I'm fired up!!

sharkeyanti 04-04-2009 12:21 AM

Giroux/Briere could wreak havoc on Ottawa if the Sens secondary lines don't come out with any force. I think it's safe to say Claude's the real deal talent-wise. When I watch with games with my friends we always end up shouting, "DO SOMETHING!" when the Flyers are sucking (e.g. not clearing the zone, standing around, generally being bad hockey players), but Giroux is always working and thinking. Sometimes he is a bit overeager but I can't help getting that feeling that he is going to do something good with the puck every time it's near him. The best players put fear into opponents, and right now Giroux has that quality.

Claude Giroux 04-04-2009 12:46 AM

Hope they saved some goals

the kid has scary good talent man. You can see it. Its going to be fun watching this kid develop into a great player. Once he gets over that tendancy to try and do to much with the puck and just settle down. He is going to be a force every single night.

qwertysac 04-04-2009 12:54 AM

I'm gona miss half this game because of hockey, bleh.

Go flyers!!

GoneFullHolmgren 04-04-2009 01:24 AM

im gonna be in Manchester again, relying on the very slow updates scoreboards on the ends of the arena.

Norm MacDonald 04-04-2009 01:56 AM

A win officially clinches a playoff spot. Just get it done :yo:

Claude28Giroux 04-04-2009 02:54 AM

**** these ****s up eh:D

SnS 04-04-2009 04:12 AM

Let's get a win. Back to back. Keep on firing, as well as tighten up on the back end.

Penner getrdonebryan 04-04-2009 05:11 AM

I can't get used with these early GDT's . The Sens board look uninterested in making one until 5 PM usually

Don't be tricked by the standings , it will be a tough game for the Flyers. Ottawa has won 7 in a row at home and haven't lost at ScotiaBank Place since March 3 .

May the best win. I'll post in our GDT (if we make one) , but I will come here if I have the time . Hopefully it won't be a boring game

mongoose7385* 04-04-2009 07:19 AM

I hope we score just as many goals as last night, just give up about 4 less.

Go Flyers!!!!:yo::yo::yo:

Opus 04-04-2009 07:47 AM

Killer GDT sir.

We all remember what happened last time we played the Sens, I expect better.

Let's Go Flyers!!!

DeadPhish5858 04-04-2009 07:55 AM

Lets start a winning streak and clinch a playoff spot.

Go Flyers!!

MsWoof 04-04-2009 08:07 AM

This is my last day with Centre Ice so win and do it convincingly!

LEIFey 04-04-2009 08:20 AM

holmgren should yell at the team after every game.

i liked the first period of the last game, but we need to stop losing that edge, even if we're up 6-0. TO showed that a 6-goal lead can evaporate to a 3-goal win. step on their necks and put ottawa out of its misery!

Bennysflyers16 04-04-2009 08:30 AM

Just play a complete game and please, whichever goalie starts for us, just be good, no softies tonight. Big game from Frodo and Pipin tonight again:handclap:
