I remember being 7 or 8 years old and thinking that the Legion of Doom was the best name ever and just becoming hooked.

I always loved LeClair for some reason.

Do you remember The Rifle knocking a goalie out with a slap shot?
I am not sure if the years have exaggerated the event in my mind or not but I remember Leach nailing a goalie in the mask with a slapper that knock his mask off and him out.

I used to love the one on one skills competitions in between periods. Hockey's version of home run derby.

I'm pretty sure Bunny Larocque (Toronto) fell to the ice after being hit in the mask.

I'd like to make a motion that all user names include their age, so we know who is older and therefore right in any discussion.

Im a young gun. 21 as of yesterday.

Always had a question for the "old folks" who lived during the Flyers Stanley Cup wins.

That 1974 year, did everyone automatically deem the Flyers to be favorites to win the cup given their style of play, or did it just come about naturally? Were they tops of their division/conference, or was it a very long fought battle?

Was a huge Phantoms fan too. Got to see them win the Calder and close out the Spectrum.
I'm a 34 yo who actually used to get to skate around with the Phantoms flag when there were 3 guys shooting shirts into stands, lol. Ah fun times. Was also almost Phlex for two years but won the coin toss. The outfit smelled aweful.

(I don't think I can talk about what happened with first Phlex )

I recall that it was Phil Myre. I just seem to recall that is was versus the Flames,

I'd ask my best friend from those days (he remembers everything), but he's in jail.

Meltzer might recall, too.

First vivid Flyers' memory:

Listening to the Flyers play (and lose to ) the Red Wings in the 97 cup finals on the radio outside with my neighbors and all my friends watching for some comet or meteor shower or something. I was 6, 19 now.

Do you mean entering the 1973-74 season (before the first Cup) or entering the 1974-75 season (before the second Cup)?

They were in the mix. Clarke won his first Hart Trophy and the team went to the semifinals in 1973, even led Montreal (eventual Champs) 1-0 in games which garnered some attention. But the key was the reacquisition of Bernie Parent, who played in the WHA but whose NHL rights were held by Toronto, during the offseason.

Among the chief comeptitors: Boston had a new but mostly unproven goalie in Gilles Gilbert and Montreal's Ken Dryden quit over a salary dispute and joined a law firm. Chicago's Bobby Hull was in the WHA. So, there was an opening.

The team was steady in its performances but really took off in the last couple of months. There was an incident that Fred Shero lauded later in Montreal, national TV, Canadiens up 2-0 after two periods and a brawl erupted in which Larry Robinson decimated Dave Schultz at the end of the period. NBC, the broadcast carrier was irate, too. But the Flyers used it to their advantage scored twice in the first five minutes and the game ended in a tie. Shero said he couldn't believe how the Flyers were unified and actually joking about the fight and that he assumed the life would be taken from them. The opposite happened. The team lost something like only four times the rest of the way.

The Rangers took care of Montreal in the playoffs and they had much of the attention at that point. The Flyers and Rangers each won three home games in their PO round, then Game 7 happened which shocked the NHL world. It is a horribly forgotten game and effort but it really was the performance that established the Flyers as an expansion threat. IIRC, Boston's Phil Esposito even said before game 7 that he didn't want the Rangers to win because the thought was they had the PO experience and were the better team. Then came the Finals and the Flyers had to overcome their poor history in Boston Garden by winning at least one game. Clarke made sure of that.

I vaguely remember the rifle hitting a goalie in the mask with that howitzer he had, but do not remember who it was.I remember Bunny laroque and Phil Myre quite well, but do not remember if it was either of them or not. Phil Myre actually played for the Flyers for a short stint, he was a pretty good goalie and had one of the cooler looking mask in those days, he was also a pretty tough guy too, he was known to drop the gloves, and also known to slash the heck out of players in front of his net.

That will be forever my all time favorite flyer's goal. When Clarkie scored in OT I looked at my buddies and said we just won the cup. No way were we going to lose a home game. I think I leaped higher than Clarkie. Molson's Ex was going everywhere

Everyone has seen Jimmy Valvano's reaction when NC State won the college basketball title. That was a yoot-version of MSE after Clarke scored.
