  • 1988 -- December 28 -- The Flyers were victorious 3-2 in Pittsburgh in a game featuring many scraps.
  • 1989 -- February 3 -- Pittsburgh finally won in Philadelphia, a first since January 20, 1974. The Flyers' loss ended a team record 42-game (39-0-3) home unbeaten streak against one opponent. Philly went 48-1-4 in a 53-game stretch of home games against the Penguins around this time. Wendell Young made 39 saves in the 5-3 victory.
  • 1989 -- April 3 -- The Flyers pulled their goalie in OT in an attempt to improve their PO positioning in the final day of the regular season but lost when Mario Lemieux scored his 85th goal of the season, 6-5. The Flyers out-shot Pittsburgh 43-21 and rallied to tie with three third period goals after trailing 5-2. The Flyers had a 29-2-1 home record against Pittsburgh in the 1980s (a 2-game skid).
  • 1989 -- April 17 -- In Game 1 of the Patrick Division Finals, Pittsburgh's Rob Brown netted the only goal of the third period, with 6:43 to play, in a 4-3 home win. Kevin Stevens and Zarley Zalapski assisted on the same three goals. Philly led 3-1 in the second period.

Pittsburgh led 6-1 after one period and 9-3 after two periods but the Flyers nearly staged an improbable rally by scoring four third period goals to narrow their deficit to 9-7. Lemieux's final goal came via empty net on his ninth shot. Paul Coffey (0-4-4), Rob Brown (2-1-3, consecutive goals within three minutes of each other) and Bob Errey (1-2-3) contributed. Tim Kerr (2-2-4) and Pelle Eklund (2-0-2) led the Flyers' attack. Eklund scored six seconds into second period, the fastest PO goal to start any non-first period in NHL history.

Mark Howe had three assists. Ilkka Sinisalo returned to play after three months out with a broken arm and added a psychological boost; he played in just 13 regular season games and missed the first 11 post-season contests.

Randy Cunneyworth had two goals for the Pens while Mario Lemieux was held to zero points and had a -4 in the +/- column.
  • 1989 -- April 29 -- In Game 7, the Flyers responded with one of the most stirring triumphs in team history as they stunned the Pens 4-1 in Pittsburgh to advance to the Conference Finals. Backup netminder Ken Wregget, who starred and made 39 saves, started due to a sprained MCL injury suffered by Ron Hextall in Game 6; Wregget was informed he'd play after the morning skate. With the game tied 1-1 in the early second period on a PPG by Mario Lemieux (9-5-14 in the series), the Flyers' Jeff Chychrun was penalized about a minute later but Dave Poulin quieted the Igloo crowd with a SHG. Mike Bullard and Scott Mellanby added third period goals. The Flyers' PK unit killed seven of eight penalties. Tim Kerr had team-records of 15 points and 10 goals in the series, including five on the PP. Kerr (10-5-15) was joined by Propp (6-5-11) as 10+ points-performers for Philly in the series.

  • 1990 -- October 16 -- Prior to a game in Pittsburgh, Tim Kerr's wife Kathy passed away from complications just ten days after giving birth to a daughter named Kimberly.

Even with those two centres, I'm not at all scared by their lineup. I don't expect this team will find a way to win the way things are going, but there's not many excuses either. This is what we talked about - taking advantage of Gonchar and Whitney being out.

OK MSE, I'm like Charlie. I'm running out of adjectives so I'm just going to start making words up: Fantabulous GDT, MSE. The picture for 85-89 is hilarious. And I really, really, really hope Sykora doesn't play--that dude is a Flyers killer.

The Flyers really need to get one in the W column and I can't think of a better team to win our first game against than the Pens.

Let's Go Flyers!!

Not in hockey mode either yet, but a Flyers win is never too shabby.

Pitt honestly doesn't scare me too much either. Their defense is worse off than ours is right now. If we finish our ******* chances, this game is ours.

I vote we don't start 0-3. I also vote we dress Shane Victorino as a 7th d-man.

And if its tied after OT we call in Matt Stairs to anchor the shootout.

Just win a game, please. Let Luca get silly with the puck. No penalties.

I am in Pittsburgh and will be sporting a Flyers shirt all day. This is, to me, a must win.
