The trio clicked as Propp established himself as a complete player who could work the corners, check opponents, make creative passes, and score goals.

From there, the foundation was set as Propp became a solid fixture on the Flyers forward lines for a total of ten and a half seasons. During that time, his team made it to the Stanley Cup finals three times, he made four trips to the All-Star game, and, during regular season play, his consistent work ethic brought home a notable percentage of game-winning goals.

While he never had a single enormous offensive season, Propp's strength was his consistency, as his point total with the Flyers suggest. During the 1980s he scored 75, 66, 91, 82, 92, 97, 97, 67, 76, and 78 points in successive seasons. He was one of the league's best left wingers during the 1980's but his work often went unnoticed by the media and the fans outside of Philadelphia.

But scoring stats never properly told the story of Brian Propp. He was quiet and shunning of any spotlight. He always placed the team's goals ahead of his own, and he worked hard to become a complete player. He became a tremendous defensive player while averaging over a point per game. Blessed with speed and strong anticipation skills, he and Dave Poulin formed a tremendous penalty killing tandem, perhaps the best of the 1980s.

Propp's four points gave him a team leading 27 points on 11 goals and 16 assits. His four assists also ties a team playoff record shared with three others.
