DUCKS' STATS: SERIES HISTORY:
Current and Miscellaneous:
  • The Flyers' all-time W-L-T-OTL record is 9-7-5-2.
  • The Flyers' all-time W-L-T-OTL home record is 4-3-3-1.
  • The Flyers' all-time W-L-T-OTL away record is 5-4-2-1.
  • The Ducks have won the last three games.
  • Of the 23 games played, 16 have been decided by one goal or less.


1990s
  • 1994 -- February 16 -- Joe Sacco (2-2-4) scored two third period goals and Guy Hebert made 26 saves in Anaheim's 6-3 home win, the first matchup between these franchises. Shaun Van Allen (1-2-3) scored 1:05 into the game and the Ducks' led the rest of the contest. Pelle Eklund suffered a hernia and played in his final game with the Flyers; he was eventually traded to the Dallas Stars. There were two fights: Ryan McGill vs. Troy Loney and Claude Boivin vs. Randy Ladouceur.
  • 1994 -- March 27 -- Gary Valk scored his second goal of the contest 24 seconds into OT to lift Anaheim to a 3-2 win in the first matchup between these franchises in Philadelphia. Valk was in the box for holding when Mikael Renberg tied the score at 2-2 with 2:44 to play in the third. Frederic Chabot suffered the loss subbing for Dominic Roussel who was replaced when the Ducks pulled ahead 2-1. Flyers' head coach Terry Simpson said "Dom was OK, but it's the same old story. A couple of shots beat him late and it appeared as though he wasn't ready on any of the shots. The puck was in our zone and it's not like you shouldn't be expecting a shot." Guy Hebert made 29 saves for the win. The game was scoreless until Al Conroy gave Philly a 1-0 lead in the third period. Mark Recchi had two assists including his 100th point of the season. Mikael Renberg tied the game 2-2 and became the first Swedish rookie to record 75 points in an NHL season.



    First Swedish rookie to reach 75 points in an NHL season.
  • 1995 -- March 8 -- Anatoli Semenov was traded to Philadelphia by Anaheim for Milos Holan.
  • 1995 -- October 20 -- Eric Lindros had three points and John LeClair scored twice in the Flyers' 4-2 win in the Arrowhead Pond. LeClair's two goals came in the middle period and gave Philly a 4-0 lead. The Flyers also held a decisive 24-6 shot advantage after two periods. Anaheim scored twice in a 30-second span in the third period. Ron Hextall made 13 saves on 15 shots but was replaced by Dominic Roussel (three saves on three stops) with 3:34 left in the game when multiple players fell on top of him. The injury was diagnosed as a pulled right hamstring and Hextall returned November 9.

  • 1996 -- January 9 -- John LeClair's PPG with 2:27 remaining in the third gave the Flyers a 2-2 tie in the Spectrum. Shawn Antoski and Todd Ewen got fighting majors just four seconds into the game. At the same time, the Ducks were penalized for submitting an illegal lineup (player substitution). The Ducks led 2-0 before seven minutes expired but the Flyers rallied with two PPGs.
  • 1996 -- February 6 -- Bob Corkum was traded to Philadelphia by Anaheim for Chris Herperger and Winnipeg's 7th round choice (previously acquired, Anaheim selected Tony Mohagen) in the 1997 Entry Draft.
  • 1996 -- March 19 -- Anatoli Semenov and Mike Crowley were traded to Anaheim by Philadelphia for Brian Wesenberg.
  • 1996 -- October 16 -- Pat Falloon scored with 7:53 remaining to cap a three-goal rally in the Flyers' 4-3 road win. The Flyers dominated the third period 14-4 in shots and 2-0 in goals. It was the home opener for the Mighty Ducks and the debut of a muscular mascot named Wild Wing. As part of the opening festivities, villains dressed in Flyers' jerseys (and Chicago and Los Angeles) attempted to beat little kids in Ducks' jerseys until Wild Wing came to the rescue via a guy-wire. Guy Hebert made 36 saves for Anaheim. The Flyers outshot the Ducks 40-27. Ron Hextall made 24 saves in the victory.

  • 1996 -- October 22 -- Ron Hextall recorded a 12-save shutout in the Flyers' 3-0 win in Philadelphia. The Ducks were outshot 13-1 in the first period and 27-12 in the contest. Shjon Podein, elevated to the top line (with Rod Brind'Amour and Mikael Renberg) in place of injured Eric Lindros, netted the GWG in the first period. Rod Brind'Amour made it 2-0 with one minute to play in the second period. Eric Desjardins (1-1-2) finished the scoring in the third period. Guy Hebert made 23 saves for Anaheim before being replaced by Mikhail Shtalenkov with 4:22 left in the game.
  • 1997 -- October 15 -- Ron Hextall made 33 saves and Mikhail Shtalenkov stopped 30 shots in a 2-02 tie at Anaheim. The Flyers had three minors called against them in a 1:59 stretch late in the third period and Tomas Sandstrom scored with one second left on a 5-on-3 and with 4:32 remaining. The Mighty Ducks led 1-0 after two periods. Daniel Lacroix and Brent Severyn (instigator, game misconduct, 27 PIMs) hooked up in a fight ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inBB2bZT4Ig ) which included a misconduct to the Flyers' Dan Kordic. Nineteen seconds later, John LeClair tied the game with a PPG. Eric Lindros (1-1-2) gave Philly a 2-1 lead. Paul Coffey assisted on both goals.
  • 1998 -- March 19 -- Anaheim's Frank Banham scored with 28 seconds left in the second period and Mikhail Shtalenkov made 33 saves in a game that ended in a 3-3 OT tie at Philadelphia. Rod Brind'Amour and Janne Niinimaa each had two points. Philly held a 36-20 shots advantage including 3-0 in OT. The Ducks' Travis Green was called for tripping as regulation time expired.
  • 1998 -- October 11 -- John LeClair (1-3-4) had four points, Eric Lindros scored twice and JVB made 21 saves in his Flyers' home debut lifting Philly to a 4-1 win in the team's home opener. Dan McGillis had two assists. With about six minutes to play, Luke Richardson and Stu Grimson were issued fighting majors.
  • 1999 -- February 10 -- Despite four points (2-2-4) by Eric Lindros, Anaheim pulled out a 5-4 home win as Fredrik Olausson (2-2-4) and Teemu Selanne (2-1-3) paced the Ducks. JVB was pulled at 46:16 after giving up five goals and with the Flyers down 5-2. Ron Hextall went the balance of the contest but the Flyers rally fell just short. Each team scored three PPGs. The Flyers entered the game with a W-L-T record of 16-1-7 in their last 24 outings.

  • 1999-- November 3 -- Eric Lindros had three assists and John LeClair scored twice, including the game-tying goal with four seconds left in the second period, in a 3-3 draw at Anaheim. All six goals came in the second period and Anaheim scored three times on five shots off JVB. The Flyers held a 33-21 shots advantage including 23-7 over the last 40 minutes of regulation (14-5 in the second period and 9-2 in the third period). Ducks' goalie Dominic Roussel made 30 saves.

2000s
  • 2000 -- February 3 -- The struggling Flyers fired 48 shots at Guy Hebert (45 saves), including a team-record 10 in overtime, but settled for a 3-3 tie in Philadelphia. Eric Lindros' (1-2-3) PPG snapped a team-skid at 0-for-16 and evened the game early in the third period. John LeClair (1-1-2) scored 37 seconds into the game. JVB made 28 saves. The Flyers entered the game 1-4-3 in the last eight games. The Flyers held a 45-28 shots advantage including 10-3 in overtime.
  • 2000 -- October 21 -- Teemu Selanne's PPG with 2:38 remaining sparked the Ducks to a 4-3 win in Philadelphia. Tony Hrkac tied the game with a third period goal for Anaheim. The Flyers outshot the Ducks 18-5 in the first period and led 2-0, but Anaheim outshot Philadelphia 18-14 the balance of the game. After the game, Craig Ramsay said of his slumping Flyers (winless in seven) "This one hurt, no question. It really hurt." John LeClair underwent disk surgery at USC University Hospital in Los Angeles and did not return until November 26.
  • 2002 -- February 6 -- Paul Kariya (3-0-3) scored three goals and Oleg Tverdovsky (1-1-2) beat Brian Boucher with 12.6 seconds remaining in Anaheim's 5-4 home win. When asked about the late goal, Boucher said "I saw him shoot the puck. It was just a floater shot. There were two guys in front (and) after those two guys went by, I lost the puck. When I saw it again, it went over me." It was Anaheim's sixth straight win. Philly led 2-1 after the first period and 4-2 with under 14 minutes to play but Kariya, in his 500th game, completed his hat trick at the 8:20 mark to even the score 4-4. Andy McDonald (0-3-3) had three points. Anaheim won for the first time this season when trailing after two periods (1-19-1-0). The Flyers dropped a game when scoring 3+ goals for the first time (29-1-4). Afterwards, Jeremy Roenick said "We didn't play physical. We weren't prepared to hold the lead. We're a first-place team, they're near the bottom of the league. For us to lose a two-goal lead like that is embarrassing. We took their team too lightly."
  • 2002 -- March 21 -- John LeClair scored on the rebound off a shot by Adam Oates with under eight minutes to play in the third period and the Flyers recorded a 2-1 home win. Oates was playing in his first game with the Flyers after being acquired in a trade two days earlier necessitated by the injuries earlier in the week to top centers Keith Primeau and Jeremy Roenick. Simon Gagne tied the score with under four minutes left in the second period. Philly outshot the Ducks 23-16.


  • 2003 -- January 3 -- Robert Esche made 28 saves and Keith Primeau scored a first period PPG (too many men on the ice) in a 1-0 triumph at the Arrowhead Pond. Esche recorded his fifth career shutout and excelled throughout the night including saves off two turnovers by Kim Johnsson. After the game, Esche, with a smile, said "I had to remind him (Johnsson) who his teammates were out there a couple of times.'' Anaheim was 0-for-7 on the PP and had a 5-on-3 advantage when the Flyers were whistled for two minors in the first 3:31 of the game. Martin Gerber made 24 saves.

  • 2003 -- October 22 -- Rob Niedermeyer scored in OT and J.S. Giguere made 32 saves in Anaheim's 4-3 victory in the Arrowhead Pond. Tony Amonte sent the game into OT with 0.6 seconds left in the third period, the latest goal in Flyers' history (later tied by Freddy Meyer, vs. Carolina, March 8, 2006). The Flyers outshot the Ducks 15-7 in the third period and 35-29 in the game. The Ducks led 2-0 less than six minutes into the contest. Keith Primeau received 11 PIMs in the first period including fighting Lance Ward.

  • 2005 -- July 29 -- Todd Fedoruk was traded to the Ducks for Anaheim's 2nd round choice (later traded to Phoenix - Phoenix selected Pier-Olivier Pelletier) in the 2005 Entry Draft.
  • 2006 -- November 13 -- Todd Fedoruk was traded to Philadelphia for the Flyers' 4th round choice (Justin Vaive) in the 2007 Entry Draft.
  • 2006 -- November 15 -- Philadelphia scored five first period goals and Robert Esche made 37 saves as the Flyers stunned Anaheim 7-4 in the Honda Center. Philly snapped what was a franchise-tying six game skid (gained one point out of a possible 12). Anaheim, meanwhile, won 10 of its prior 13 contests. Eight Flyers had multiple point games, including Sami Kapanen who scored twice, yet no Flyer had more than two shots on goal despite scoring seven times. Kapanen gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead at 1:48 but Chris Kunitz tied it 22 seconds later. The Flyers then scored four times in a span of 5:10 in the latter half of the opening period. Anaheim closed to within 5-3 early in the second period. J.S. Giguere was replaced after the first period when he gave up five goals on 11 shots. Anaheim out-shot the Flyers 41-16, including 27-4 in the final 40 minutes but each team scored twice. Philly was 3-for-5 on the PP. The disappointing Kyle Calder was a healthy scratch. Some highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiPHCsE93uA


  • 2008 -- February 2 -- Mike Knuble recorded his first hat trick in 707 career games and Martin Biron made 27 saves for his 21st career shutout in the Flyers' 3-0 win in Philadelphia. Knuble also helped shut down Anaheim's top line (Todd Bertuzzi, Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry) and afterwards said "They're three great players and we kept them off the board." Knuble's second goal was scored with 10 seconds remaining in the second period. Six different Flyers picked up assists. The sizzling Flyers improved to 13-3-1 since Christmas but would win just one of the next 11 games. Anaheim lost for the sixth straight time and the Ducks' extended their scoreless stretch to 155:20. Some highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhgaViEwd6g





  • 2009 -- January 2 -- Martin Biron made 27 saves and improved his career record against the Ducks to 8-0-0 and Mike Richards (0-3-3) scored the only shootout goal in Philly's 5-4 shootout win at Anaheim. Richards, who also had three assists, scored in the second round then Getzlaf failed on Anaheim's final attempt. The standing-room-only crowd of 17,597 was a Ducks' record. Early in the second period, Anaheim scored twice including the first NHL goal by Andrew Ebbett, to make it 3-1, on his 26th birthday. Josh Gratton started the Flyers comeback 16 seconds later. With 2:19 to play in the second period, Braydon Coburn scored a PPG but 52 seconds later was penalized leading to an eventual Ducks' PPG with 1:14 to play. Mike Knuble responded 14 seconds later to make it 4-4 after two periods, the third goal in 79 seconds. Scott Niedermayer played over 32 minutes. Sami Pahlsson and Getzlaf combined to win 32 of 47 faceoffs among the Ducks' 41-28 advantage. Getzlaf and Corey Perry each had a goal and an assist but both failed on shootout attempts. Late in the first period, Riley Cote and George Parros fought, eight seconds before Gratton and Steve Montador dueled. In the third period, Perry was issued a double-minor and eventually suspended four games for elbowing Claude Giroux -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKrr1...eature=related Game highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1BSjFyenNE



  • 2009 -- October 10 -- Teemu Selanne scored twice in the third period and the only goal during the shootout of Anaheim's 3-2 win at Philly. Selanne snapped Ray Emery's (31 saves) shutout bid with with 6:44 remaining then sent the game to OT with 16 seconds to play. In the shootout, Danny Briere, Mike Richards and Simon Gagne failed while Selanne scored on the Ducks' second try. Jonas Hiller made 33 saves. Chris Pronger, who celebrated his 35th birthday, scored the second Flyers' PPG of the game to make it 2-0 and played 31:17 against his former team. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poXMpirS5W0


2010s
  • 2010 -- October 21 -- Ryan Getzlaf scored with 1:46 left in the third period and Curtis McElhinney made 40 saves in Anaheim's 3-2 win at Philadelphia. Lubomir Visnovsky gave the Ducks a 1-0 lead in the opening minute. The game was tied 2-2 entering the third period. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fI1b06Nj7YU
  • 2010 -- November 21 -- The Flyers acquired Danny Syvret and Rob Bordson from Anaheim in exchange for Pat Maroon and David Laliberte.
  • 2010 -- December 31 -- Jason Blake and Lubomir Visnovsky each scored twice in Anaheim's 5-2 home win. Jonas Hiller made 35 saves. The Ducks led 3-0 but Jeff Carter's (1-1-2) early third period goal made it 3-2 before Bobby Ryan's insurance goal less than two minutes later.

The two radio announcers speculated Bobrovsky and hinted that he was scratched with the likelihood he'd be starting tonight. As always, expect the unexpected however.

Today's game day song ruled my world in 1984.

I have nothing against the Ducks (okay, maybe Perry) but wreck these guys and ring in the new year roit and proppa.

I'm going to this game and can't wait. Sitting 2nd row behind the Flyers bench.

Damn near 20 year Flyers fan and this will be my first game seeing them in person. Sucks being a Flyer fan all the way in California.

That superstar could excel in any position. If only we could have shelley play every position at once, we would win all 82 games and the cup.

im gunna say Bobo..

i suspect Bobo might have his best game yet..

the nice part of having 3 goalies is every game a select goalie gets he has to make a statement..

me thinks bobo being such a dedicated young guy he will wanna show up Leightons win..

not that it will take much, sadly leights hardly set a hi bar to beat..dammit.

Fantastic GDT, my friend!

I'm probably going to miss most/all of this one, but I am going to try to see a bit.

We need to see 60 minutes of smart play please, despite it being a back-to-back game. And if someone could send Corey Perry into the 5th row, that'd be just peachy.

LET'S GO FLYERS!!

Probably the best GDT I've seen yet. I loved reading those re-caps of past games with Philly.

You're welcome. And I was being sincere. Too many GDTs are full of some stupid gfx abracadabra gimmiks with little real info.

I love these two "goon" teams, I wish they would simply start a bench-clearing brawl just to piss off Bettman and the rest of the tree-hugging, peace-loving, anti-violence, no-fighting, no-contact people of the world.

ferrealsies.

i was highly disappointed when they unveiled their third jerseys and i did not get the urge to start a rousing pre-game quack.

last year when they met, lupul was out and pronger was in, right? looks to be the other way around this time. neither home team gets to see their former player.

Are you kidding? They'd be expelled from the league.

To be honest, I wouldn't care. NHL is way too politically correct, we need some old-school hockey. And with "big" team like Flyers, they wouldn't dare to go overboard. Well, except when there's only a lonely enforcer like Shelley involved. What a BS suspension.

I can't begin to imagine the nightmares Bettman must have gone through after brawls like Sens-Flyers where the whole crowd was standing, cheering and clapping like crazy.

He was in his bomb shelter waiting for the explosions.

Yeah and after Comcast execs told him "you know Gary, we had the best ratings like ever", Bettman retired to his bunker and had lengthy conversations with Dalai Lama and Damien Cox, assuring them that this was an exception and he would personally go to the re-match and make sure there wouldn't be a single hit in the game.

Because the peace-loving, violence-hating TV audiences in the US surely wouldn't approve anything even remotely close to violence. That would be bad for the ratings or something.

Sigh...Skill and goon hockey are not mutually exclusive. Both can exist.

not any more. everyone seems to think we need a heavyweight dressed every night and we need to fight every night. not that this is directed at you but some people cant get out of the 70s mentality. Why are players like Shelley around?
why do people see the need for Carcillo and Rinaldo on this team? Dont get me wrong I like physical tough hockey as much as anyone, but I hate stupid hockey players.
