Frederic Chabot suffered the loss subbing for Dominic Roussel who was replaced when the Ducks pulled ahead 2-1. Flyers' head coach Terry Simpson said "Dom was OK, but it's the same old story. A couple of shots beat him late and it appeared as though he wasn't ready on any of the shots. The puck was in our zone and it's not like you shouldn't be expecting a shot." Guy Hebert made 29 saves for the win. The game was scoreless until Al Conroy gave Philly a 1-0 lead in the third period. Mark Recchi had two assists including his 100th point of the season. Mikael Renberg tied the game 2-2 and became the first Swedish rookie to record 75 points in an NHL season.

The injury was diagnosed as a pulled right hamstring and Hextall returned November 9. Shjon Podein and Todd Ewen fought in the first period ( ).

  • 1996 -- January 9 -- John LeClair's PPG with 2:27 remaining in the third gave the Flyers a 2-2 tie in the Spectrum.

The Ducks led 2-0 before seven minutes expired but the Flyers rallied with two PPGs. Guy Hebert made 31 saves for the Ducks and Garth Snow stopped 20 shots for the Flyers. The game was played just two days after a record-snowfall of 30 inches hit Philadelphia yet over 15,000 fans still showed.

Ron Hextall made 24 saves. The Flyers' PP was 2-for-3. It was the home opener for the Mighty Ducks and the debut of a muscular mascot named Wild Wing.

Guy Hebert made 36 saves for Anaheim. The Flyers outshot the Ducks 40-27.
  • 1996 -- October 22 -- Ron Hextall recorded a 12-save shutout in the Flyers' 3-0 win in Philadelphia. The Ducks were outshot 13-1 in the first period and 27-12 in the contest. Shjon Podein, elevated to the top line (with Rod Brind'Amour and Mikael Renberg) in place of injured Eric Lindros, netted the GWG in the first period. Rod Brind'Amour made it 2-0 with one minute to play in the second period. Eric Desjardins (1-1-2) finished the scoring in the third period.

Dan McGillis had two assists. With 5:53 to play, Luke Richardson intervened in a possible Eric Lindros-Stu Grimson fight and both Richardson and Grimson earned fighting majors while Lindros picked up an unsportsmanlike minor.
  • 1999 -- February 10 -- Fredrik Olausson (2-2-4) and Teemu Selanne (2-1-3) led the offense and Guy Hebert made 28 saves in the Ducks' 5-4 home win. Eric Lindros had four points (2-2-4).

  • 1999-- November 3 -- John LeClair scored twice (2-0-2) and Eric Lindros (0-3-3) assisted on each goal in a 3-3 draw at Anaheim.

The OT shots total was 10-3. Eric Lindros' (1-2-3) PPG, the Flyers first in the last 17 tries, made it 3-3 and came about five minutes after Teemu Selanne gave Anaheim a 3-2 lead during a 5-on-3. Lindros factored in each goal including one by John LeClair (1-1-2) in the game's opening minute. John Vanbiesbrouck made 28 saves.
  • 2000 -- October 21 -- Teemu Selanne's PPG with 2:38 remaining sparked the Ducks to a 4-3 win in Philadelphia. Tony Hrkac tied the game with a third period goal for Anaheim.

When asked about the late goal, Boucher said "I saw him shoot the puck. It was just a floater shot. There were two guys in front (and) after those two guys went by, I lost the puck. When I saw it again, it went over me." It was Anaheim's sixth straight win. Philly led 2-1 after the first period and 4-2 with under 14 minutes to play but Kariya, in his 500th game, completed his hat trick at the 8:20 mark to even the score 4-4. Andy McDonald (0-3-3) had three points. Anaheim won for the first time this season when trailing after two periods (1-19-1-0). The Flyers dropped a game when scoring 3+ goals for the first time (29-1-4). Afterwards, Jeremy Roenick said "We didn't play physical. We weren't prepared to hold the lead. We're a first-place team, they're near the bottom of the league. For us to lose a two-goal lead like that is embarrassing. We took their team too lightly."
  • 2002 -- March 21 -- John LeClair scored on the rebound off a shot by Adam Oates with under eight minutes to play in the third period and the Flyers recorded a 2-1 home win. Oates, the NHL's leader in assists, made his Flyers' debut after being acquired two days earlier in a trade from Washington to help the Flyers' slumping powerplay and fill a void with injuries earlier in the week to top centers Keith Primeau and Jeremy Roenick. Simon Gagne tied the score with under four minutes left in the second period. Philly outshot the Ducks 23-16. Brian Boucher made 15 saves.

The Flyers had four minors to one for Anaheim (the PPG) in the opening 13 minutes. The Ducks' PP was 0-for-7 including a failed 5-on-3 advantage when the Flyers were whistled for two minors in the first 3:31 of the game. Martin Gerber made 24 saves.
  • 2003 -- October 22 -- Rob Niedermeyer scored in OT and J.S. Giguere made 32 saves in Anaheim's 4-3 home win. Tony Amonte sent the game into OT with 0.6 seconds left in the third period, the latest goal in Flyers' history (later tied by Freddy Meyer, vs. Carolina, March 8, 2006). The Flyers outshot the Ducks 15-7 in the third period and 35-29 in the game. The Ducks led 2-0 less than six minutes into the contest. Keith Primeau received 11 PIMs in the first period including fighting Lance Ward.

  • 2006 -- November 15 -- Robert Esche made 37 saves and the Flyers led 5-2 after the opening period in a shocking 7-4 win at Anaheim. The Flyers entered the game with the worst record in the East (3-12-2) while the Ducks owned the best record in the West (13-1-4). Philly snapped a six game losing streak (one point out of a possible 12) which tied a franchise-record. The Flyers were out-shot 41-16 including an incredible 27-4 over the last 40 minutes. Sami Kapanen (2-0-2), who scored twice, gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead at 1:48 but Chris Kunitz tied it 22 seconds later. The Flyers scored four times in a span of 5:10 in the latter half of the opening period to take a 5-1 lead. J.S. Giguere (6 saves, 11 shots) was replaced after the first period by Ilya Bryzgalov (3 saves, 5 shots). Anaheim closed to within 5-3 early in the second period but Alexandre Picard and Kapanen scored early in the third period to boost the lead to four goals. Five Flyers had two points apiece and Chris Pronger had two assists for Anaheim. Boyd Kane and Shane O'Brien had a brief scrap ( ). Philly was 3-for-6 on the PP. The disappointing Kyle Calder was a healthy scratch. Highlights:

  • 2008 -- February 2 -- Mike Knuble recorded his first hat trick in 707 career games and Martin Biron made 27 saves for his 21st career shutout in the Flyers' 3-0 win in Philadelphia. Knuble also helped shut down Anaheim's top line (Todd Bertuzzi, Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry) and afterwards said "They're three great players and we kept them off the board." Knuble's second goal was scored with 10 seconds remaining in the second period. Six different Flyers picked up assists. The sizzling Flyers improved to 13-3-1 since Christmas but would win just one of the next 11 games. Anaheim lost for the sixth straight time and the Ducks' extended their scoreless stretch to 155:20.

  • 2009 -- January 2 -- Martin Biron made 27 saves and improved his career record against the Ducks to 8-0-0 and Mike Richards (0-3-3) scored the only shootout goal in Philly's 5-4 shootout win at Anaheim. Richards, who also had three assists, scored in the second round then Getzlaf failed on Anaheim's final attempt. The standing-room-only crowd of 17,597 was a Ducks' record. Early in the second period, Anaheim scored twice including the first NHL goal by Andrew Ebbett, to make it 3-1, on his 26th birthday. Josh Gratton started the Flyers comeback 16 seconds later. With 2:19 to play in the second period, Braydon Coburn scored a PPG but 52 seconds later was penalized leading to an eventual Ducks' PPG with 1:14 to play. Mike Knuble responded 14 seconds later to make it 4-4 after two periods, the third goal in 79 seconds. Scott Niedermayer played over 32 minutes. Sami Pahlsson and Getzlaf combined to win 32 of 47 faceoffs among the Ducks' 41-28 advantage. Getzlaf and Corey Perry each had a goal and an assist but both failed on shootout attempts. Late in the first period, Riley Cote and George Parros fought, eight seconds before Gratton and Steve Montador dueled. In the third period, Perry was issued a double-minor and eventually suspended four games for elbowing Claude Giroux. Game highlights --
  • 2009 -- June 26 -- Chris Pronger, with one year left on his contract (the Flyers signed him to a multi-year pact in early July), and Ryan Dingle were traded to Philadelphia for Joffrey Lupul, Luca Sbisa, the Flyers' first round picks in 2009 (later traded to Columbus, selected John Moore) and 2010 (Emerson Etem) and a conditional pick. That pick would be either a 2010 or 2011 third-round selection which would have been sent to Montreal in exchange for the return of the Ducks' 2011 4th round pick (sent to the Canadiens in a deal involving Kyle Chipchura) but contingent on the Flyers winning the Stanley Cup in 2010.
  • 2009 -- October 10 -- Teemu Selanne scored twice in the third period and the only goal during the shootout leading Anaheim to a 3-2 win at Philly. Selanne snapped Ray Emery's (31 saves) shutout bid with with 6:44 remaining then sent the game to OT with 16 seconds to play.

  • 2010 -- December 31 -- Jason Blake (2-0-2) and Lubomir Visnovsky (2-0-2) each scored twice and Jonas Hiller made 35 saves in Anaheim's 5-2 home win. The Ducks led 3-0 at the game's midway point before goals by Andreas Nodl and Jeff Carter (1-1-2) closed the score to 3-2. However, Bobby Ryan scored an insurance goal less than two minutes after Carter's tally. Dan Carcillo fought Kyle Chipchura ( ).
  • 2011 -- December 2 -- Claude Giroux's PPG 3:29 into OT completed the Flyers' rally from a 3-0 deficit in a 4-3 win at Anaheim. Jaromir Jagr (2-1-3), who had the 116th two-goal game of his career, Scott Hartnell (1-1-2) and Giroux (1-1-2) scored and Kimmo Timonen (0-3-3) and Danny Briere (0-2-2) combined for five assists.
