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.

Ottawa was outshot 12-2 in the first period and went 16 minutes without any shots. Damian Rhodes made 26 saves in the loss. Afterwards, Coffey said "Some people say that players today are not as good as players before. I think that's a crock. But sometimes, I think the game is not as good as it was before because there is just too much strategy. There's just not a whole lot of ice out there. Traps are fine, but if it is going to be such a cat-and-mouse chess game out there, we've got to get the ice bigger or do something. You're asking big entertainment dollars from the fans. As a player, the bottom line is wining the game, but you still have to entertain out there. You go long stretches of a period without a shot on net, it is not good to watch, but what are you going to do."
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 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 mobilized and carried from the ice on a stretcher. "I felt horrible. No one likes to see that.

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."

The Flyers entered the game with the NHL's most points. Afterwards, coach Ken Hitchcock said ""I think there are some psychological issues that need to get dealt with. Whether we've got to draw them out or whatever, I think those are real and they've got to get dealt with. If we want to be a championship team, we cannot pretend that the psychological issues are going to be hidden. They are preventing people from performing at their best."

Martin Havlat was tossed with a a match penalty for swinging his stick at Mark Recchi leading to multiple stitches to Recchi's upper lip. Afterwards, coach Ken Hitchcock said "He's a reckless player and someday someone is going to make him eat his lunch. He's going to get it someday, and it's going to be harsh." 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."

A little Canadiana music for a Canadian opponent; I like it.
Great job, MSE!
Let's see if the boys are riding high off of a step in the right direction against the Isles.
12-09-2009 11:16 PM
Gotta get another win here.
12-09-2009 11:24 PM
I think the Flyers are about to start a winning streak. Here.

He wasnt tested too much, but he did play well. He allowed 2 goals to Tavares which he had no chance on. For the most part he has played well for the last few weeks, even in the losses. (except for the Caps game, which we all will forget.)

I know it's still early in the season, but the Senators are 3 points ahead of us in the standings, so a win here would be nice. Too bad Emery isn't playing against his former team. I still want to see someone fight Neil.
12-10-2009 03:34 AM
I hope that they can keep the goals coming. Hell, maybe even a hat trick for JVR would be amazing for his game and for the team. I also noticed, by the end of December, we should have our team the way it should be, with Gagne, Powe and Betts coming back off the DL. Maybe a great New Years present with a great win by the Flyers at the Winter Classic with a full team.

I'm benching Elliott tonight, so they better ****ing win.
