There were four fights in the game including Eric Lindros's two third period scraps, one against Doug Zmolek and the other a lopsided fight against Rob Zettler.

  • 1994 -- February 3 -- Sergei Makarov's goal on the Sharks' first shot in OT gave San Jose a 3-2 win in OT. The Flyers led 2-0 after one period and maintained that margin until Pat Falloon and Rob Gaudreau scored midway in the second period. Arturs Irbe made 32 saves for the Sharks.
  • 1994 -- February 15 -- Mikael Renberg (3-1-4) had a natural hat trick in the third period and the Flyers rallied for a 6-4 win in San Jose. It was the seventh time in Flyers' history a player scored three times in one regular season period. Eric Lindros had three (1-2-3) points and Bob Wilkie had two of his four Flyers' career points in this game. Dominic Roussel played 35:40 and was 19-for-19 in relief of Tommy Soderstrom who surrendered four goals on nine shots and was replaced early in the second period. The Flyers scored six times on 19 shots off Arturs Irbe. The teams combined to go 0-for-17 on the PP; the Flyers killed all 10 San Jose PPs.
  • 1995 -- November 16 -- Pat Falloon was traded to Philadelphia by San Jose for Martin Spanhel, Philadelphia's 1st round choice (later traded to Buffalo - later traded to Phoenix - Phoenix selected Daniel Briere) in 1996 Entry Draft and Philadelphia's 4th round choice (later traded to Buffalo - Buffalo selected Mike Martone), in 1996 Entry Draft.


1996-1999:
  • 1996 -- January 3 -- Ron Hextall stopped 30 shots in a 3-1 win played in San Jose. Yanick Dupre scored the first of two goals in his NHL career which lasted just 35 games; he passed away in 1997 with leukemia. San Jose outshot Philly 31-19 and the lone Sharks' goal was by Marcus Ragnarsson on a PP.
  • 1996 -- March 17 -- The Flyers mauled the Sharks 8-2 in the Spectrum. The winners were paced by John LeClair (3-1-4), Eric Lindros (0-4-4) and Pat Falloon (2-0-2); Joel Otto and Dale Hawerchuk added three points apiece. Goalie Geoff Sarjeant gave up eight goals on 24 shots.
  • 1996 -- November 16 -- San Jose scored twice in the third period to rally for a 2-2 tie in Philly. John LeClair scored twice in the first to give the Flyers a 2-0 lead. Greg Hawgood's PPG with under three minutes to play evened the score. The Sharks held a 5-1 shots edge in OT. Scott Daniels and Marty McSorley fought.
  • 1997 -- January 2 -- Ron Hextall made 26 saves and the Flyers beat nemesis (just seven wins in 30 meetings) Chris Terreri, 4-1 in San Jose. Daniel Lacroix and Eric Lindros gave the Flyers a 2-0 lead in the first period. The sizzling Flyers increased their unbeaten streak to 15 games (13-0-2) including a 9-0-1 run for Hextall. Lindros (11-12-23) and linemate John LeClair (12-10-22) continued their strong offense during the streak, too, with a point each.
  • 1997 -- October 13 -- Garth Snow was fabulous with 43 saves and Eric Lindros (1-1-2) scored the GWG on a 2-on-1 break with the first shot in OT to lift Philly 3-2 in San Jose. Snow was at his best when he made 24 saves on 25 shots in the second period. Said Sharks' coach Darryl Sutter "I'm really disappointed that we lost, but not in the way we played. We had great opportunities but we couldn't put the puck past Snow." The Sharks held a 45-24 shots advantage. Shawn Burr scored both San Jose goals; he had six in 60 regular season games in his Sharks' career. Rod Brind'Amour (1-1-2) tied the game with 2:55 to play. Said Flyers' head coach Wayne Cashman "Our goaltending is the reason we won. It was as good of display as I've ever seen."
  • 1997 -- November 20 -- San Jose beat the Flyers 3-0 in Philadelphia as Mike Vernon had 28 saves and improved his record to 18-5-3 against the Flyers (regular season and POs combined). The Sharks had just 12 shots on goal and were outshot 10-1 in the third period. Eric Lindros, who earlier fought Todd Gill, scuffled with Marty McSorley in an altercation which led to an investigation by the NHL to determine if Lindros bit McSorley on the cheek and face. The NHL reviewed video and denied the claim. Said Lindros "I didn't bite Marty. What's been talked about is just inaccurate reporting. It's unfortunate. The bottom line is it didn't occur.'' McSorley said ``He didn't bite me -- whether he tried, I can't answer that. The only problem I have is he whacked me across the face with his stick. He's a tough kid. . . . he doesn't need to do that.'' Daqrryl Sutter, San Jose's head coach, said " Everyone was overreacting big-time. I didn't see anything. They're reacting to the cut, which was from the stick, not anything else. I didn't know anything about it until I went to bed and watched ESPN. On our team, it's not an issue.''
  • 1998 -- October 20 -- The Flyers dominated the third period (14-3 in shots, 2-0 in goals) en route to a 3-1 home victory. Colin Forbes scored the game-winner and Eric Lindros added an insurance tally in the final period. Lindros and Rod Brind'Amour each had a goal and an assist as Brind'Amour replaced Mike Maneluk on the reformed Legion of Doom Line. Mike Vernon finished with 34 saves.
  • 1998 -- December 28 -- Eric Lindros and Joe Murphy swapped second period goals and each team had 23 shots in a 1-1 tie at San Jose. Lindros' goal was on the PP and it snapped a streak of 31 straight kills by the Sharks. San Jose goalie Mike Vernon excelled in OT when the Flyers had a 6-1 shots advantage.
  • 1999 -- November 5 -- The Flyers dominated the Sharks in a 3-1 win in San Jose. Philly out-shot San Jose 32-16 and were 1:26 away from a JVB shutout. John LeClair, Eric Lindros (two points) and Daymond Langkow (two points) each scored and Mark Recchi added two assists.
  • 1999 -- November 13 -- Mikael Renberg's PPG with under five to play in the second period gave the Flyers a 3-2 home win. Daymond Langkow and John LeClair also scored. The Sharks rallied from a 2-0 hole. The Flyers extended a recent run to 10-2-1 in their last 13 games after stating the season 0-5-1.


2000s:
  • 2000 -- December 21 -- The Flyers went 3-for-4 on the PP and Rick Tocchet accounted for two of those goals in a 4-3 home win. Daymond Langkow (1-2-3) had three points and Roman Cechmanek made 25 saves. Patrick Marleau scored twice for the Sharks including a spectacular solo effort goal. San Jose's five-game winning streak was snapped. Evgeni Nabokov was replaced early in the second period, down 3-1, by Steve Shields who stopped all but one of 24 shots. Bill Barber began his coaching career with a 3-0-3 record, the best start for any Flyers' coach. Chris McAllister and Shawn Thornton had a spirited fight -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiK-3mEbe08

  • 2002 -- January 2 -- San Jose scored three third period goals and won 5-2 in the newly named Compaq Center. The game was even 2-2 after 40 minutes until Gary Suter snapped the tie in the early third period. The Sharks held a 36-24 shots advantage, including 12-4 in the final period. Bryan Marchment leveled Donald Brashear with an open ice hit and the two later fought. Marchment, who also lost a fight to Todd Fedoruk, was named the game's top star.
  • 2002 -- November 21 -- Jeremy Roenick's PPG with 7:29 to play gave the Flyers a 2-2 tie in Philly. It was their fourth tie in their last five games. Roenick's PPG snapped an 0-for-32 skid with the man advantage for the Flyers. Robert Esche, 27 saves, was brilliant throughout the game and twice stopped Teemu Selanne on breakaways. Afterwards, Selanne said "I think last year I missed two breakaways all season.'' One of his breakaways came on a 2-on-0 moments after Selanne gave the Sharks a 1-0 lead. Chris Therien suffered a back injury and missed the next six games.
  • 2002 -- December 6 -- Marcus Ragnarsson was acquired from San Jose for Dan McGillis.
  • 2002 -- December 30 -- Jonathan Cheechoo scored in the third period and the Sharks won 2-1 in the HP Pavilion at San Jose. Evgeni Nabokov made 24 saves in the win. John LeClair and Simon Gagne did not play due to injuries.
  • 2003 -- October 16 -- Jeff Hackett (27 saves) and Evgeni Nabokov (26 saves) dueled to a scoreless tie in the HP Pavilion. It was Hackett's second shutout in his first three starts for his Flyers. The shutout was Hackett's 25th of his career, the 18th for Nabokov. Each team failed to score on lengthy 5-on-3's. In OT, the Sharks nearly scored but a goal judge reviewed and rejected the possible goal.
  • 2004 -- February 16 -- Scott Thornton and Jonathan Cheechoo each had three points in San Jose's 5-2 win in Philly. The Sharks took just 20 shots, one game after taking a club-record 50 shots in a 2-1 OT win at Columbus. Jeremy Roenick and Keith Primeau were out of the Flyers' lineup. There were just five minors called in the game for a total of 10 PIMs.

  • 2006 -- November 18 -- The Sharks scored three goals in the first and second periods and won 6-1 at home. SJ held a 25-18 shots advantage.

The Sharks' Mark Bell fought ben Eager and Boyd Kane in two separate battles.
  • 2008 -- February 21 -- San Jose recorded a 3-1 win in Philly. Mike Knuble scored with six seconds left in the second period but Milan Michalek and Doug Murray scored 42 seconds apart in the third period to negate any momentum. The Flyers lost for the ninth straight time (0-8-1) and also extended their skid in this series to seven game (0-5-2). The Flyers honored Sharks' center Jeremy Roenick for his 500th career goal (against Phoenix, third American to score that total joining Mike Modano and Joey Mullen). Philly's GM Paul Holmgren presented him with a Tiffany crystal. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbTcX1Qx2oE

  • 2008 -- October 18 -- The Sharks rallied from a 2-goal deficit to win 5-4 (OT) in San Jose on a goal by Dan Boyle. The entertaining game was sent to an extra period when Devin Setoguchi evened the score 4-4 with 4:44 to play in regulation. The Flyers took a 4-3 lead when Daniel Briere (2-0-2) scored on a breakaway with 8:49 remaining. San Jose outshot Philly 44-17 but goaltender Antero Niittymaki recorded second star honors with his brilliant play including a tremendous glove save late in the third period with the score tied 4-4 which led Sharks' PxP man Dan Rusanowsky to say "Niittymaki, you're a thief!" in appreciation. The Flyers led 3-1 when Jeff Carter (1-1-2) scored a SHG 6:48 into the middle period, 21 seconds into a minor penalty on Luca Sbisa and 1:41 after the Flyers killed a two-minute 5-on-3 disadvantage. The Sharks went 1-for-7 on the PP, while Philly was 0-for-2. Riley Cote fought Jody Shelley -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krQxOEY2DtA Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBT7DL9lUCM&feature=fvw

  • 2008 -- October 22 -- San Jose won both ends of the home-and-home series winning 7-6 in a (2-0) shootout in Philadelphia. Joe Pavelski and Jeremy Roenick scored for the Sharks in the extra session. The Sharks led 4-3 after a wild first period. Goalie Antero Niittymaki was replaced after 20 minutes for the Flyers. The Sharks led 6-4 in the third third period but Daniel Briere's late PPG, with 65 seconds remaining, sent the game to OT. Patrick Marleau (2-2-4) led San Jose's offense. Joffrey Lupul (2-0-2), Scott Hartnell (0-3-3) and Kimmo Timonen +4 led the Flyers. Philly started the season with an 0-3-3 record. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMvkVEeAA_Q

The Philadelphia Flyers announced that the starting time for their game against the New Jersey Devils at the Wachovia Center on Saturday, October 25, has been changed to 4:00 p.m. Eastern. The game will still be televised by Comcast SportsNet and broadcast on SportsRadio 610 WIP (610-AM).

"We felt that changing the starting time to 4:00 p.m. benefits our fans," said Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren. "The 4:00 p.m. starting time should alleviate some of the congestion in the sports complex area and gives our fans the opportunity to view Game 3 of the World Series."

The original starting time of 7:00 p.m. for the game was changed to 4:00 p.m. to avoid a conflict with Game 3 of the 2008 World Series. This is the second time that the Flyers have changed a game to avoid a conflict with a World Series game. The Flyers-New York Islanders game at the Spectrum on October 21, 1993 was moved to October 22 to avoid a conflict with Game Five of the 1993 World Series.

Great articles, MSE. I just read a few. Knuble says the team's not hungry enough--I guess that's what happens when you get rid of York. (OK, bad attempt at humor).

Anyway, I love JR, but I love the Flyers more...so let's get a win, boys.

I'm sure they'll only be about six of us actually watching this game. For those of you that will be watching the Phills, best of luck to you as well.

After Tuesday night, the Flyers are the only team in the league without a win. If the boys needed anymore motivation, maybe that'll do it.

Win!

Awesome job, MSE! You really do spoil us; earlier, I was floating through the Buffalo and Boston GDTs for their game tonight and found myself annoyed that I couldn't get firm detalis about starting lineups for either team. You're certainly the class of the boards when it comes to GDTs and please keep it up!

Thank you, that is very kind to say. I am going to post my favorite smilie to offset the candor

So if we win, is it all because of Richards? Since we're losing because of him...

We were lucky to stay with SJ the other night. We'll lose again tonight.

At least, on the scoresheet, we have not been blown away yet. We've been able to claw back in every game. We just need not get in the situation where you're down two or three early.

Common then guys. No negative attitude. I have a good feeling about tonight, its going to happen. I am expecting Lupul to have a monster of a game as with hartnell. Players jobs are now on the line, as with the coach. Backs against the wall time to show the flyers spirit

I'm really torn at this point....


If they lose 2-3 more stevens gets fired...


But then they're in such a big hole...


I don't know what to do

Nitty starts again tonight....


I'm not so sure about this. Granted, Biron has played poorly, but you just don't go from good to bad that quickly. Biron is better than he has been playing and is better than nitty. He needs to work himself out of this funk. It will be better for the team long term to give Biron more starts, imo

Shots allowed is the problem. We'll see what tonight brings.

Biron has been playing horrid, whereas Niitty is the reason the game wasn't totally blown out of the water on Saturday. You play good, you get the starts. Marty will get his chances, there's plenty of season left.

Hopefully we'll see two huge wins tonight. That will make me very happy.

GO PHILLIES! GO FLYERS!

You gotta go with the hot hand. Nitty stole us a point last game and for this team that point is big right now. Goalie's are competetive and so is Biron. He knows now that he will need to pick his game up if he wants the bulk of the starts and having a week off between starts will give him a little time to chake off the rust he has left and put those bad starts behind him. A struggling goalie isnt like a forward, with a forward there is 5 of them on the ice and when 1 stuggles and doesnt produce he has a team full of guys to pick him up so you can let a forward work through a slump. With a goalie if they are stuggling you need to get them out of the game because they can single handedly lose you games and he has had a big role in some of the losses. Let him get that competetive drive back knowing that Nitty is taking his playing time and we will hopefully see Marty come back with a big effort against a stuggling offense in Jersey.

Or accumulate more.... It may be better to give Biron the confidence of more starts under his belt....


We're looking at a 3 game sample of a 381 game career... Not enough to start a goalie controversy as far as I'm concerned

no win coming tonight sadly. i want to to see the body language of this team. see how they play. i think thye have already quit on stevens, which is pathetic if they did no matter how bad he is , Stevens is in the flyers record book for so many bad records. In 2 years he has been involved with so many losing streaks. Uninspired play-which is still a problem. We keep rehashing the same deficiencies he has yet he doesn’t improve in any of those areas that need improvement. At what point does he get canned. Oh well he can always bake a cake or maybe change it up and bake a pie. Homer also has to take some of the blame. he assembled this mish mash d unit.

I never said it was a goalie controversy but its an 82 game season, you play the goalie thats playing better, and wait for the real #1 to get his head in the game. Nitty is known for being very hot and cold so if Biron is slumping and Nitty is playing well you might as well take advantage of it and use him while Marty gets himself straightened out. Its not like they said OK from here on out they are splitting games until one pulls away. Biron can shake off the rust and build confidence in practice getting tons of shots. I have no problem sitting a struggling goalie for a game against a high powered offense and then playing him the next game against a stuggling offense, especially when the other goalie earned himself another start by stealing us a point(something Biron has not done at all this season). Best case scenario, Biron gets the competetive juices goign and is focused for the game against a stuggling offense and earns himself a 2-1 victory. Just one or two good starts in a row will boost his confidence and let him roll with the #1 spot for good and play 4 out of every 5 games. The sharks throwing 45 shots at him might not be the best way to build up his confidence.
