N.J. entered the game with a perfect 9-0-0 road mark and winners of their last eight overall. Darrol Powe scored a first period goal and Scott Hartnell made it 2-0 in the opening minute of the second period. N.J.'s goals came with three seconds left on a 5-on-3 in the middle period and then one with 0.6 left in regulation. Prior to the game, Dave Schultz became the 20th player inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame: “Philadelphia Flyers fans are the greatest. I love you all. I have never had a bad day in Philadelphia.”

Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YF5hVkAaLlg

  • Mar. 28, 2010 -- Brian Boucher made 32 saves and five Flyers, led by Simon Gagne (1-1-2) and Ville Leino (1-1-2), scored in a 5-1 home win. Three Flyers' defensemen scored, Matt Carle, Kimmo Timonen and Lucas Krajicek, a team first since October 14, 2005 when Joni Pitkanen, Derian Hatcher and Mike Rathje did so against Pittsburgh. Martin Brodeur (15 saves, 19 shots) was removed after the second period for Yann Denis (5 saves, 6 shots). The Flyers beat the Devils five times, a team first since the 1988-89 season. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtusqLIv6hk


  • April 14, 2010 -- In Game 1 of the ECQF at N.J., Brian Boucher made 23 saves backing the Flyers to a 2-1 win. It was Boucher's first PO start in eight years. Boucher’s last PO win of nearly ten years was the third longest stretch in PO history (Boston’s Jim “Sugar” Henry went 10 years and 1 day between wins (1942-52); Sean Burke went 9 years, 347 days between wins. Boucher went 9 years, 329 days between victories). Boucher came within 2:43 of a shutout and made several key stops. Chris Pronger, who played a game-high 30:01, snapped a second period scoreless tie with a PPG then Mike Richards (1-1-2) made it 2-0. The Flyers' PK excelled going 5-for-5. The Flyers were outshot 24-14; the shot total unofficially was the fewest in any team PO win and one off the all-time team PO low of 13 (in two losses). The Flyers led a series 1-0 for the first time since 2004 (Toronto). After the game, Danny Briere said “There’s a piece of furniture behind you guys that took a pretty good beating” a reference to a soda machine supposedly thrashed by head coach Peter Laviolette between the first and second periods.

  • April 16, 2010 -- In Game 2 at N.J., Dainius Zubrus snapped a 3-3 tie with 4:04 left in regulation and Martin Brodeur made 26 saves in NJ's 5-3 home win. Ilya Kovalchuk (1-2-3) added an ENG. Patrik Elias (0-3-3) had three assists. Zach Parise scored a SHG 2:45 into the game. Chris Pronger became the sixth Flyer, and first defenseman, to score in his first two PO games with the team. The Flyers led 2-1 after one period. The game was tied 3-3 after two periods. Brian Boucher made 28 saves. Philly was 2-for-7 on PPs, NJ was 1-for-3. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_4l58Xp-Oc

  • April 18, 2010 -- In Game 3 at Philly, Dan Carcillo (1-1-2) scored 3:35 into OT lifting the Flyers to a 3-2 win. The goal came five seconds after NJ killed a minor penalty. NJ went 2-for-8 on PPs while the Flyers went 1-for-5. Philly was called for three minors prior to the seven-minute mark and through two periods had seven minors to NJ's two. Mike Richards (1-1-2) added two points and Brian Boucher made 17 stops. The Flyers held a 34-19 shots advantage including 18-4 combined in the third period and OT. The third period was scoreless. Brian Rolston (2 PPGs) and Martin Brodeur (31 saves) led NJ. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQIsJVU9kgg

  • April 20, 2010 -- In Game 4 at Philly, Brian Boucher made 31 saves and Jeff Carter (2-1-3) and Danny Briere (1-2-3), both entering the game pointless in the series, each had three points in the Flyers' 4-1 home win. Briere netted the GWG with 2:33 left in the second period. However Carter and Simon Gagne both suffered foot injuries in the game and were lost indefinitely. The Flyers' PK killed 7 of 8 chances while the PP scored twice on eight tries. Chris Pronger assisted on third period goals by Dan Carcillo and Carter, the latter coming on a 5-on-3. Ilya Kovalchuk scored NJ's lone goal, on a 5-on-3 in the first period. Martin Brodeur made 24 saves. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAEzUBHqbJw

  • April 22, 2010 -- In Game 5 at N.J., the seventh seeded Flyers won 3-0 and upset the second-ranked Devils 4 games to 1 to advance to the 2010 ECSF. Brian Boucher made 28 saves, Danny Briere (1-1-2) scored a PPG at the 3:16 mark and Claude Giroux (2-1-3) scored twice during a second-period span of 1:59. Briere said of Giroux, the game's top star, “Big plays from him again tonight. You can’t teach what he does. He’s been a guy we’ve been able to rely on. For some reason we have that chemistry when we’re together on the ice. We think alike and we know where each other are going to be all the time. He’s a player that’s fun to play with and you have to be ready to get the puck from him every time.” Mike Richards added two assists. The Flyers were 2-for-6 on PPs while New Jersey was 0-for-8. The Devils committed 13 turnovers to the Flyers' one. Chants of "Booosh" and "Let's Go Flyers' rang throughout the Prudential Center. Ilya Kovalchuk said "We've got a great team but they just outplayed us, totally. They were missing a couple of guys (Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne) but were still able to do it. We did not deserve to win." Boucher earned his first playoff shutout since April, 16, 2000, ending a streak of 10 years and six days — the second longest in NHL history, missing Jim Henry’s mark (1942-52) by just four days. However, Ian Laperriere suffered a severe eye injury which kept him out of the lineup for 10 games until May 22, 2010. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ii5sFowdPlQ Series Recap: Boucher's GAA in the series was 1.59 with a .940 save percentage and did not allow an even strength goal for the last 187:39 of the series (excluding Ilya Kovalchuk’s empty-netter at the end of Game 2). The last time the Flyers ended a series with a shutout win came in 1987 when Ron Hextall blanked the New York Rangers. Martin Brodeur recorded a 2.98 GAA and an .881 save percentage. Scoring leaders: Mike Richards (2-6-8), Claude Giroux (4-3-6), Danny Briere (2-3-5) and Chris Pronger (2-3-5) who had points in his first four PO games as a Flyer. NJ was led by Ilya Kovalchuk (2-4-6). The Flyers' PP was 8-for-29 and the PK killed 28 of 32.





2010-2011:
  • November 27, 2010 -- Travis Zajac scored the SO winner (2-1) in NJ's 2-1 home win. The Flyers led the shootout 1-0 when Nikolay Zherdev scored in the third round but Jason Arnott tied it. Johan Hedberg made 40 saves and was 3-for-4 in the shootout and was selected the game's top star. Danny Briere tied the game with a PPG midway in the third period. Philly held a 41-25 shots advantage including 28-11 combined in the second and third periods. The game totalled 10 PIMs. It was the second straight shootout loss for the Flyers in as many days leading Blair Betts to say “You can feel it (lack of passion). The atmosphere was light and there wasn’t enough emotion or intensity, even before we went on the ice. You kind of felt it yesterday against Calgary and it’s something we have to fix.”
  • December 4, 2010 --Mike Richards (1-1-2, +3), who scored the tie-breaking goal 3:37 into the third period, and Jeff Carter (1-2-3) were the game's top two stars in Philly's 5-3 home win. Sergei Bobrovsky made 23 saves including a key stop on Ilya Kovalchuk's breakaway with the score tied 2-2. Kovalchuk earlier scored his second goal in the past 17 games. The Devils' PP was 1-for-43 on the road but went 2-for-3 in this game including making the score 4-3 with 44 seconds to play. The Flyers' struggling PP went 0-for-3 and fell into a 2-for-41 slump. Philly dominated the second period 14-4 on shots and scored the lone goal to tie the game 2-2. In the third, the Flyers scored three times including Carter's ENG.
