Pete Peeters

All-star game (1980, 1981, 1983, 1984)

NHL record: Longest unbeaten streak by a rookie goaltender (27 games -- 22-0-5 -- in 1979-80)
In 1979-80, the Flyers and their goaltender got so hot that they set a league record unbeaten streak of 35 games. By season's end Peeters and his mates went toe-to-toe with the powerful New York Islanders in the Cup finals only to lose out four games to two.
Had run-in with Philadelphia reporter during the 1981-82 season in which he was accused of physically abusing the reporter. The incident was a factor in his being traded the following summer

Quote: 1983.. came within one game of tying his coach, Gerry Cheever's, record of 32 straight appearances without a loss.

Led all NHL goaltenders with 36 penalty minutes for Boston in 1983-84.
Was ejected from Boston's March 4, 1984, game at Hartford for his role in a scuffle at the end of the second period of a game in which he was his team's backup goalie...
(Coach Shero would appreciate the emotion, the fire, of a backup goalie jumping the boards and standing up for his teammates)
