BLUE JACKETS' STATS:
FLYERS-BLUE JACKETS' SERIES HISTORY:
  • The Flyers' all-time W-L-T-OTL record is 4-0-3-0.
  • The Flyers' all time home record is 2-0-1-0.
  • The Flyers' all-time road record is 2-0-2-0
  • The Flyers have never lost in regulation to the Blue Jackets and have recorded a possible 78.6% of possible points (11 out of 14).

2000-09:
  • November 29, 2000 -- Mark Recchi scored twice in the third period including the GWG with 58.6 seconds remaining in the Flyers' 4-3 win at Columbus. Recchi also tied the game at 3-3 just past the middle stage of the third period and both of his goals came off assists by Ruslan Fedotenko. Brian Boucher made 23 saves in the win. This was the first time the teams met and Tyler Wright is credited with the first goal in this series, but 13 seconds later the Flyers' Jody Hull evened the game. The Jackets held a 3-1 lead in the second period and 3-2 at the start of the final period. It was the first time the expansion Blue Jackets lost a game when leading entering the third period (6-0-1 prior mark).

  • October 6, 2001 -- In the first meeting in Philadelphia, the Flyers rallied for a 3-3 tie when Justin Williams scored with less than five minutes to play. Columbus led 3-1 when Grant Marshall scored his second goal of the game in the early third period but Kim Johnsson, who earlier scored his first goal as a Flyer, replied with his second tally of the contest to bring the Flyers within one goal. Eric Weinrich, Simon Gagne, Williams and Johnsson each had two points. The Flyers outshot the Blue Jackets 40-18. Ron Tugnutt made 37 saves for Columbus. The Jackets were 2-for-2 on the PP.
  • October 8, 2001 -- Simon Gagne and Jan Hlavac scored within 50 seconds of each other in the game's final eight minutes and the Flyers skated to a 2-2 tie in Columbus. Hlavac's shot bounced off the skates of two Columbus players before beating goalie Marc Denis. The Blue Jackets took a 2-0 lead with an early third period goal. Marc Denis (30 saves) and Brian Boucher (28 saves) were the goalies.
  • April 1, 2003 -- The Flyers held Columbus to just 10 shots in a 4-0 victory in Philadelphia. Roman Cechmanek, who prior to the game was named the Flyers' MVP and winner of the Bobby Clarke Trophy, was the beneficiary in his 20th career shutout. Afterwards, he said "Ten shots is not nice for me. Sometimes I wasn't focused. I stand there for 10 minutes and nobody was shooting.'' It was the lowest shot toal for the Blue Jackets in their young history. The Flyers had 29 shots. Simon Gagne returned after missing 13 straight games and 29 of 31 with a right groin injury. Gagne played in the final three games of the regular season. Kim Johnsson scored the GWG in the first period. Keith Primeau was the only multi-point performer with two assists. Tyler Wright of Columbus was a -4. Jim Vandermeer was a winner in a fight against David Ling.
  • December 10, 2003 -- Sami Kapanen scored with 1:08 left in regulation and the teams played to a 1-1 tie in Columbus. Fred Brathwaite made 40 saves for Columbus as the Flyers held a 41-20 shot advantage, including 8-3 in overtime. Manny Malhotra, picked up on waivers less than three weeks prior, scored in the first period. Earlier in the game, Kapanen lost multiple teeth when an errant stick from teammate Donald Brashear caught him in the mouth. The Flyers improved to 17-3-7-1 in their 28th game of the season including 13-1-4-0 in their last 18; however, the Flyers went 2-3-2-3 to finish the calendar year.

  • December 13, 2005 -- Robert Esche made 23 saves and Peter Forsberg, Jeff Carter and Sami Kapanen each scored in the 3-1 home win. The Blue Jackets had a 1-0 lead less than six minutes into the game. In the second period, Columbus had a 2-man advantage for 1:05 but couldn't beat Esche. The Flyers killed seven of the eight PPs awarded Columbus including 3:02 of a two-man power play. Carter won 10 of 13 faceoffs.
  • November 24, 2006 -- The Flyers ruined the Columbus coaching debut of Ken Hitchcock when Mike Richards scored his first goal of the season in the third period of a 3-2 win in Philadelphia. Antero Niittymaki made 39 saves for the Flyers. Freddy Meyer made it 2-1 and he also had an assist. Rick Nash's tally with 19 seconds left in the second period knotted the score 2-2. Columbus outshot the Flyers 41-22; Fredrik Modin of Columbus had 10 shots. Hitchcock was fired by the Flyers October 22, 2006 after a 1-6-1 start. He coached his 758th regular season game as a head coach in the NHL. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouHQBMuPbnI



  • June 20, 2008 -- R.J. Umberger was traded to Columbus by Philadelphia with Philadelphia's 4th round choice (Drew Olson) in the 2008 Entry Draft for Colorado's 1st round choice (previously acquired, Philadelphia selected Luca Sbisa) in the 2008 Entry Draft and Columbus's 3rd round choice (Marc-Andre Bourdon) in the 2008 Entry Draft.
  • December 27, 2008 -- Steve Mason made 20 saves in Columbus' 3-0 home win, the Blue Jackets' first victory against the Flyers in franchise history. Mason lowered his NHL-best GAA to 1.87. The Flyers were shutout for the first time in 76 games. Columbus was blanked in the prior two games and hadn't scored in 131 minutes, 8 seconds before Jan Hejda scored. Defenseman Kimmo Timonen didn't play due to an injury suffered the night before in Chicago. Weather in the Chicago area prevented the Flyers from their scheduled post-game departure and the team didn't arrive in Columbus until mid-afternoon.

Great clip choices! I don't think anyone will ever forget that goal. I don't think I saw Hitch's full comment before - awesome!

I likely won't get to see any of this game, so I'm hoping to come home to hear about a win. Yeah, I'm an optimist.

No Briere, Timonen, Hartnell or Upshall. Now that hurts.

Hopefully Pens will lose tomorrow and Devils and Rangers just kill each other.

Whats our game plan coach?

This is brutal.

But then again, this is where playoff-level experience and chemistry is created.

Fight or **** off.

it was his 3rd nhl game, he probably had jitters, and i saw him gain confidence as the game progressed. he may see work with cater and lupul, like many of us wanted to see with hartnells injury. i mean who else would? nodl? kalinski? powe? oh god forgive me for saying this, but asham? i think this is the opportunity giroux needed.

Good point. That will be fun to watch if Giroux does get moved to the 2nd line.

Wow, that's some ****ing great news to wake up to
When it rains, it pours I guess. Just hope the pouring stops now. It will be interesting to see Giroux play with Carter though. Hope they'll recall Nödl after tonights Phantoms game and have him ship up to Vancouver.

It's ok guys. We are gonna roll our top two lines of

Gagne - Richards - Knuble
Giroux - Carter - Lupul

All game with a splash of the fourth line for a fight. Giroux is going to have a monster of a game and come out flying. Carter will be feeding off him, while richards takes care of business.

The powerplay is still going to work without timmonen as Matt carle is going to show us why he is really here, with Sbisa making the entire columbus team look silly with stick handling we have never seen.

well, i hope

If they can pull off a win tonight we can last the travesty from last night slide.

But this is some horrible news to wake up to.

Great choice of clips up there though.

Stinks that they couldn't get out of Chicago last night again. Hopefully the flight today goes better and they at least get to Columbus early. Lets hope for a better effort.

This is the opportunity that Giroux needs. He's being given second line minutes with the best sniper in the NHL, let's see if they can feed off of each other. Probably going to miss the first period and a half because of a Christmas Tournament.

Lupul's blog entry sounds like they already had their travel excuses in their minds for a loss last night. Hope it changes tonight.

3-1 Flyers. 2 goals by carter, 1 Knuble(he needs to step it up). And 1 from Umberger.

Not gettin out of Chicago till today sucks! We need a solid hard working, tight checking game. With all these injuries, nothing fancy take the body pucks on net.
Let's Go Flyers!!
