FLYERS' FIRST-ROUND SCHEDULE:
All Times are PM and Eastern Time
1950 -- Reggie Leach was born. Happy 59th birthday.
1974 -- In Game 2 in Philly, Bernie Parent made 28 saves and Ross Lonsberry (2-2-4) had three third period points to lead the Flyers to a 5-2 win. Just 19 seconds into the opening period, Bob Kelly belted Jerry Butler in a fight; Butler was injured and never returned. Bobby Clarke gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead. With about two minutes left in the first, Jimmy Watson bloodied Pete Stemkowski in a fight. There were 40 PIMs called in the first period. In the second period, Ed Van Impe scored a disputed goal, which infuriated Eddie Giacomin who slammed his stick against the glass near the neutral goal judge (from St. Louis); Emile Francis switched to Gilles Villemure for 22 seconds to settle Giacomin. In the third, Brad Park's PPG, 16 seconds after Ross Lonsberry's SHG breakaway made it 3-1, got NY to within one goal. Eight minutes later, Rick MacLeish made it 4-2.
1985 -- In Game 3, Pelle Lindbergh made 36 saves, including a staggering 25 stops in the second period, in the 5-3 win at NY. The Islanders' 27 shots set a team-record and also tied for the most ever against the Flyers in a PO period. A key moment in the game was when Brian Propp, while on the PK, stripped Clark Gillies of the puck and drilled a 15-footer past Billy Smith to give the Flyers a 4-1 lead in the middle period; the Islanders did score 31 seconds later while on the same PP. After the game, Islanders' forward Bob Bourne said "I have never seen a team play with so much confidence, not even the great Montreal teams."
1989 -- See above, against Pittsburgh.
1996 -- In Game 4 in St. Petersburg, in one of the most dramatic events in team history, John LeClair, who missed most of Game 2 and all of Game 3 with a sprained ankle, flew to Florida to join his team and then scored two PPGs in an important 4-1 road win. The game was played in front of the NHL's largest crowd ever (since broken) 28,183 in the Thunderdome.
1997 -- See above, against Pittsburgh.

You know I'm trying to keep my head up but this sucks. A season is over, now I have to wait till July till we hear anything hockey. But Go Flyers! It was a fun season. I still think we have the same problems as we did at the end of last season. ****** D. Coach is still here and still sucks. But hey! lets see what goes down this off season! Oh yeah and we still don't have a legit #1 goaltender.
Thanks MSE for another wonderful season of GDT's. These are the best of any other teams.
Oh yeah I'll be at work tomorrow for this one ah..
the flyers have proven they can outplay the penguins.
we just need a sound hockey game, little to no mistakes.
I am calling a flyers win.
What the Flyers have to do is play a full 60 minutes and leave it all out on the ice. Eventually the bounces have to go our way. I sure hope your prediction is right because, I am not done watching Flyers Hockey yet!!
ANd whats up with all the non-believers around here. It makes me sick I am a Flyer fan until the final buzzer and all you people not even giving them the slightest benefit of the doubt why dont you beat it and go watch baseball or basketball or something. It aint over till the fat lady sings
I'm kind of torn on what to do tomorrow. I've already missed watching 2 of the 4 playoff games and I have to choose between going to a meeting that may help give me material for a final assignment or I could watch the game- argh.
