Since there is a void in current play, a couple of events that took place on December 11 in team history:
The comeback against Carolina in 2008:
And Tom Bladon's remarkable performance in 1977:
On this date in 1977, Flyers defenseman Tom Bladon sets an NHL record for points by a defenseman (8) in one game with four goals and four assists in an 11-1 Flyers victory over the Cleveland Barons at the Spectrum.
Bladon was drafted by the Flyers in the second round (23rd overall) in the 1972 NHL Amateur Draft. He went on to record 67 goals and 163 assists for 230 points including 281 penalty minutes in six seasons with the Flyers.
He was a member of both Stanley Cup Championship teams (1974 & 1975) and added an additional 32 points (8G-24A) in 78 Stanley Cup Playoff games. His 32 points rank tied for fifth in Flyers history among defensemen in playoff points.
