SENATORS' STATS:
FLYERS vs. SENATORS' SERIES' HISTORY:
  • The Flyers regular season W-L-T-OTL record is 29-21-8-2.
  • At Philadelphia, the Flyers W-L-T-OTL record is 17-9-2-1.
  • At Ottawa, the Flyers W-L-T-OTL record is 12-12-6-1. Since the 1998-99 season, including playoffs, the Flyers are 5-14-5-1 in their last 25 games at Ottawa.
  • Ottawa won playoff series in 2002 (4-1) and 2003 (4-2) for an 8-3 record.

1992-1995:

  • November 15, 1992 -- The Flyers won 7-2 in the Spectrum as Eric Lindros (3-1-4) recorded his first NHL hat trick and Mark Recchi (1-4-5) had five points in the first meeting between these franchises. Lindros, who scored in each period, recorded the first goal in this series just 41 seconds into the game. Dominic Roussel made 31 stops.
  • December 5, 1992 -- The teams played at Ottawa for the first time and the Senators won 3-2 in the Ottawa Civic Center. Jamie Baker had the GWG in the third period. The Sens had just 16 shots in the game. A warrant was issued for the arrest of Eric Lindros after a woman accused him of spitting beer in her face on a nightclub dance floor. On February 8, 1993, Lindros was found not guilty after Justice Rhys Morgan issued the acquittal in Oshawa, Ontario.
  • February 9, 1993 -- Kevin Dineen (3-0-3), Mark Recchi (1-3-4), Pelle Eklund (1-2-3) and Eric Lindros (2-0-2) led the Flyers to an 8-1 win at Ottawa. Tommy Soderstrom had 27 saves.
  • October 27, 1993 -- Rod Brind'Amour scored twice in a 5-2 road win. Five Flyers had two-point games. The Flyers took a 3-0 lead in the middle period but the Senators scored twice with special teams' goals to narrow their deficit to one goal. Vyatcheslav Butsayev scored with under four to play in the third to give Philly a two-goal lead. Tommy Soderstrom was replaced after 20 minutes (Flyers led 2-0) due to ill health and the following day he had tests performed on his heart which led to a fifth operation. Soderstrom suffered Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, something that kept him sidelined the previous season, too.
  • January 11, 1994 -- Andre Faust was promoted from Hershey (AHL) earlier in the day and then scored the GWG with 5:06 left in the final period of an eventual 4-1 home victory for the Flyers. Philly outshot Ottawa 16-4 in the first period but trailed 1-0. With the score even at 1-1, Claude Boivin of the Flyers was handed a five minute major for slamming Brad Shaw into the boards, which led to a skirmish. Boivin was traded to the Senators about two months later for a disenchanted Mark Lamb who requested a trade from the Senators.
  • February 8, 1994 -- The teams played to a 3-3 tie in the Ottawa Civic Centre when Vladimir Ruzicka scored on a PP with 2:47 remaining in the third period. Bob Wilkie got the first goal of the game, the only score of his Flyers' career and the second and final goal of his NHL career. The tie ended the Flyers then-team record six game losing streak.
  • March 10, 1994 -- Eric Lindros had a dominant outing (1-5-6) while Mark Recchi added four (1-3-4) points in the Flyers' 8-2 home win.

  • April 26, 1995 -- Ottawa scored three PPGs in a 5-2 win in Philadelphia. Steve Larouche had three (1-2-3) of his 18 career points in this game.
  • October 29, 1995 -- John LeClair had a goal and two assists and the Flyers won 5-2 in the Spectrum Philly led 3-0 in the third but the Senators scored twice before Eric Lindros' goal with under six minutes to play restored the Flyers two-goal lead.
  • November 16, 1995 -- Rod Brind'Amour had three assists and Eric Lindros scored twice in Philly's 5-3 home win.

Afterwards, Jeremy Roenick said "It was a great hockey game -- everything you want in a National Hockey League game.

  • February 6, 2003 -- Roman Cechmanek made 43 saves in a 2-2 tie at Ottawa. The Sens had 33 shots in the first and second periods combined. Eric Chouinard had a goal and an assist for the Flyers after being acquired January 29. Marcus Ragnarsson assisted on both goals.
  • April 25, 2003 -- In Game 1 in Ottawa, the Flyers skated to a 2-0 first period lead but Ottawa scored the next four and won at home 4-2.

Recchi added "He's known for it. It might not come from our team, it might come from some other team, but he will because he's cheap and he does stupid stuff like that. He'd better learn to protect himself." Havlat was eventually suspended for two games, his second suspension of the season, and said "I don't feel good about what I did. I wanted to hit him, but not in the face. It was a bad decision and we'll see what happens."

Jason Spezza snapped a scoreless game with a PPG early in the second then turned his back to Biron and raised his arms, but Biron nudged him in the back. Spezza spun around and Biron pushed him again in the chest. Afterwards, Biron said “I even had time to think about it, that’s how long it took. I decided to push him in the numbers. That means he was there for a little while, yeah.” Biron got a minor penalty but Spezza was hit with a five-minute butt-ending major on Braydon Coburn and was ejected. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycFu2zqNw_8 In a separate incident, Mike Fisher and Steve Downie got fighting majors and roughing minors.

In todays Ottawa Sun - sports back page (first page) headline - "Senators injuries just sick". Looks like the flu bug has hit the team hard, it also mentions that nobody has been recalled.

That's what I was thinking. They are hurting and could use some reinforcements.

From the Ottawa Sun: Chris Neil says he's fine. His comments on playing the Flyers "I wouldn't miss it." - - Cue Asham/Cote/Gratton.

I'll tell you what he's thinking, Tavares/Hedman!

I can see Neil and Asham going tonight...and I hope Asham leaves him with a festive shiner.

Can I just say how envious I am of all you guys who have the opportunity to go to Flyers games in the good guys' arena? Someday a bunch of us Canucks will have to rent a bus and travel down to do the same.

I'm going to miss the end of this one so hopefully the Flyers have it well in hand before that.

My girlfriend already knows that Flyers time is my time. I mean you can't get out of the birthday unless she's a fan, but have you taught her that Flyers time is your time?
