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 near the midway point of the third period. Both Recchi goals were assisted by Ruslan Fedotenko. Brian Boucher made 23 saves in the win. This was the first time the teams met and Tyler Wright scored 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 4:14 to play. Columbus led 3-1 when Grant Marshall (2-0-2) scored his second goal of the game 1:11 into the third period. Kim Johnsson (2-0-2), who earlier scored his first goal as a Flyer, replied with his second tally to make it 3-2 Blue Jackets. Eric Weinrich, Simon Gagne, Williams and Johnsson each had two points. The Flyers outshot the Blue Jackets 40-18 including 29-10 from the start of the second period. Ron Tugnutt made 37 saves for Columbus. The Blue Jackets went 2-for-2 on the PP. Mark Recchi beat Espen Knutsen in a fight.
  • October 8, 2001 -- Simon Gagne and Jan Hlavac scored 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 (30 saves). Serge Aubin gave the Blue Jackets a 2-0 lead early in the third period. Brian Boucher made 28 saves. Jesse Boulerice fought Jean-Luc Grand-Pierre -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSnMq9I5J94
  • July 4, 2002 -- Luke Richardson, who spent the last five seasons with the Flyers, signed a four-year deal reportedly for $11 million with the Blue Jackets.
  • April 1, 2003 -- Columbus was limited to 10 shots in the Flyers' home finale, a 4-0 win. The Flyers held shot advantages of 12-3 through one period, 21-6 through two periods and 29-10 overall. Roman Cechmanek, who prior to the game was named the Flyers' MVP and winner of the Bobby Clarke Trophy, had his 20th career shutout and afterwards said "Ten shots is not nice for me. Sometimes I wasn't focused. I stand there for 10 minutes and nobody was shooting.'' Kim Johnsson scored in the first period and Jeremy Roenick made it 2-0 in the second period. Keith Primeau (0-2-2) assisted on the second and fourth goals. Tyler Wright of Columbus was a -4. Jim Vandermeer was a winner in a fight against David Ling. 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).
  • December 10, 2003 -- Sami Kapanen scored with 1:08 left in regulation and the teams played to a 1-1 tie in Columbus. Earlier in the game, Kapanen lost up to four teeth when an errant stick from teammate Donald Brashear caught him in the mouth. 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. 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. The Flyers had seven minors in the second period compared to two for Columbus. 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 -- Mike Richards scored his first goal of the season, in the third period, and Antero Niittymaki made 39 saves in the Flyers' 3-2 home win. The Flyers ruined the Columbus coaching debut of Ken Hitchcock. 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 and Fredrik Modin 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 and the Flyers' 2008 fourth round choice (Drew Olson) were traded to Columbus for Colorado's 2008 first round choice (previously acquired, Philadelphia selected Luca Sbisa) and Columbus's 2008 third round choice (Marc-Andre Bourdon).
  • 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. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9I0npk5k5-8
  • October 20, 2009 -- Stefan Legein was acquired by the Flyers in exchange for Michael Ratchuk.

2010-2014:
  • January 19, 2010 -- Jeff Carter scored twice (22nd time in his career), won 14 of 18 faceoffs, snapped a 2-2 tie with an incredible maneuver and was chosen the game's top star in Philly's 5-3 home win. Carter's impressive play ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oPPPg8XIUw ) culiminated with a shot directly off a faceoff win which beat goalie Mathieu Garon (25 saves, 30 shots) who was eventually replaced by Steve Mason (7 saves, 7 shots). The play came about a minute after Ian Laperriere fought Mathieu Roy ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxbn2Ef4Vnc ). Daniel Carcillo, Chris Pronger and Arron Asham also scored. Ray Emery made 25 stops for the victory. R.J. Umberger scored consecutive goals for the Blue Jackets which tied the game 2-2 and nearly completed a hat trick leading to Flyers' fans prematurely tossing hats onto the ice. Said Umberger "I've never seen that before, where a player from an opposing team gets that response. I had great times and it's nice to see them appreciate the effort I put in and how much it meant to be a Flyer." Kristian Huselius had three assists. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_hYgD6znkE

  • October 25, 2010 -- The Flyers dropped a 2-1 decision in a listless performance that was described by head coach Peter Laviolette as "The first 40 minutes, there was nothing there. There was no jam to our game. We played mindless hockey without any energy. Without any passion.” Mathieu Garon made 28 saves and Kyle Wilson and Derick Brassard scored. Ville Leino scored the lone Flyers' goal with 5:01 to play. The struggling Flyers' PP went 0-for-2 and was 3-for-35 eight games into the season.
  • February 28, 2011 -- Tom Sestito was acquired from Columbus for Michael Chaput and Greg Moore.
  • June 23, 2011 -- Jeff Carter was traded to Columbus for Jakub Voracek, the Blue Jackets' 2011 first round pick which was eighth overall (Sean Couturier) and Columbus' 2011 third round pick (Nick Cousins).

  • November 5, 2011 -- The Flyers led 5-0 through the first period and clobbered Columbus (2-10-1 entering the game) 9-2 in Philadelphia. Eight different Flyers scored which tied a team record set four other times, the most recent being October 23, 1983. Fifteen Flyers had at least one point and seven had multi-point efforts led by James van Riemsdyk (1-2-3) and Jakub Voracek (1-2-3). Sean Couturier (2-0-2) scored twice including a 3-on-1 SHG. Ilya Bryzgalov made 33 saves. The Flyers led 2-0 at the 2:27 mark and after the next goal Steve Mason (21 saves, 28 shots) was replaced by Allen York (3 saves, 5 shots); Mason returned to start the second period and went the distance. The Flyers 5-0 lead after the opening period is believed to be the eighth such occurrence in team history. The Flyers led 8-0 after two periods; the most recent time the Flyers led by eight goals after two periods was October 18, 1984 (Vancouver). The Flyers were outshot 21-6 in the third period and 35-33 in the game. Matt Carle was a +5 and Eric Gustafsson was a +6, the first Flyers' rookie to be +6 since Thomas Eriksson, Rich Sutter and Ron Sutter in a 1984 game. The Flyers were +27 while Columbus was -28. The last time the Flyers scored nine goals was February 6, 1997 (Montreal). Wayne Simmonds beat Derek Dorsett in a fight ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mtmh1gT0bRc ). Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qh66CZ5df4o

  • June 22, 2012 -- The Flyers acquired three draft picks for Sergei Bobrovsky. The Flyers received Ottawa's 2012 second round pick (Anthony Stolarz), Vancouver's 2012 fourth round pick (Taylor Leier) and Phoenix's 2013 fourth round pick which was later traded to Los Angeles for Simon Gagne.
  • April 3, 2013 -- The Flyers acquired Steve Mason from Columbus for Michael Leighton and their 2015 third round draft choice.
  • December 19, 2013 -- Captain Claude Giroux's (2-2-4) terrific performance, which culminated with his 100th career goal, helped lead the Flyers to a remarkable comeback in a 5-4 home win. The Flyers out-scored Columbus 5-1 in the third period. It is unofficially the fourth time in team history the Flyers have out-scored an opponent 5-1 in the third period of a regular season game and the first time since April 1, 1976. It was also the third time in team history the Flyers rallied from a deficit of three or more goals through two periods and won. Columbus led 3-0 through two periods and temporarily halted a brief Flyers' rally when Blake Comeau scored 8:35 into the third period to make it 4-2. That lead remained until Erik Gustafsson scored with 4:39 remaining. Giroux netted a pair of sensational goals, one that tied the game with 3:46 remaining and then a sparkling backhander with 1:38 to play in regulation was the eventual winner. The Flyers outshot Columbus 14-4 in the opening period but trailed 1-0. Columbus held an 18-9 advantage in the middle period. The Flyers outshot the Blue Jackets 16-7 in the third period. Ten Blue Jackets had a point apiece. Jake Voracek (1-2-3) and Mark Streit (0-2-2) also had multiple point games for the Flyers in addition to Giroux. In four games since the top line became Michael Raffl (1-4-5), Giroux (4-5-9) and Voracek (4-4-8), the trio had 22 points (9-13-22) and the team was 3-0-1. Columbus was 36-0-1 all-time under head coach Todd Richards when entering the third period with a lead. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZlNLdz8P5A and Giroux's winning goal ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pf7SwT85LrA ).
  • December 21, 2013 -- Ryan Johansen and R.J. Umberger both scored twice and Curtis McElhinney made 33 saves in the Blue Jackets' 6-3 home win. The Flyers scored twice in 20 seconds late in the second period to knot the game 2-2. Columbus held a 4-1 advantage in the third period and went ahead to stay at the 3:36 mark on David Savard's goal. The Flyers' PP was 0-for-5. The game saw the return of Vincent Lecavalier but Erik Gustafsson suffered a knee injury, Columbus's Marian Gaborik, who returned after missing the prior 17 games, suffered a broken collarbone on a Zac Rinaldo hit in the first period, and referee Dan O'Rourke left the game for good in the opening period after being struck by a skate in the chest.

How about we don't take so ****ing long to wake up and score. Score first and keep pushing for 60 minutes.

We're playing either McBackup after he just got destroyed or the backup to McBackup. There's not much excuse to wait until the third period this time.

They came out just fine last night. They dominated the first period pretty handily. McBackup actually played pretty damn well until the third.

The second period obviously was terrible, but the Flyers outplayed the Jackets for a majority of the game, so it's not like they just woke up for the last ten minutes (like the Caps did to us).

It wouldn't be the Flyers unless we lost this game and reverted back to .500.

and it will be a seesaw for the rest of the season, I believe.

Yeah it's McBackup with fries.

A win would be big tonight. If Tampa can win too, there's a slight bit of daylight between the Flyers and the rest, plus 7th spot will be within reach.

I thought we are currently in the six spot?

Let's have another big night from G. Not asking for another 4 points, but I would like to see 2+ and a win. Shoot the damn puck more and go to the hard areas. If that line is clicking we are winning games.

I just want three consistent periods. And Homer has to fix the defense. When you're rotating 3 guys for 1 or 2 spots, something needs work. Hopefully Giroux keeps Girouxing. (Beefs new verb )

What does the bold mean if you don't mind me asking. Is that pertaining to the #6 spot with Mez, Gus and Gill? If so I don't really see that as an issue that Homer needs to fix. Sure he could dump Mez for a conditional pick and just keep Gill as the vet #7 but ultimately it doesn't really matter IMO as long as Gus is playing and Mez isn't.

This will be a hard game to win. We need to get on this young team early. Our second line really needs to be more of a factor on the fore check. Raffl has been a nice addition to G's line and that should bode well for the club when Vinny gets back anyway thanks again MSE, well done.
GO FLYERS!

I'm including Luke with Mez and Gus, not Gill. Luke has spent some time watching too and hasn't been too good.

I don't see that as being an issue anymore. Berube bounced them around when the team was losing but lately he's been consistent with
Timonen-Coburn
Streit-Grossmann
Schenn-Gus

which is the way it should be. The bigger issue is whether he's going to **** everything up when Lecavelier comes back or not.

Lets also all remember that if things start going bad the way to turn it around is posting infomercial fail gifs. It's our new secret weapon.

Schenn was scratched more as a wake up call IMO and is the clearly superior player to Mez and Gill, that's why I didn't even think to mention him earlier. Luke has also been substantially better in his own zone then Streit but you know he's not gonna get scratched cause of his name and price tag. Though he has been better recently.

Anyway it seems the 3rd pairing is pretty much set as Schenn-Gus at this point.

Yeh, I think the d pairs at the moment were the ones most wanted at the start of the year (maybe Grossmann and Schenn switched).

I know Schenn-Gus is a pretty damn good NHL 3rd pair.

The best 3rd pair the Flyers have had since Pronger went down.

Yeah I phrased that wrong. I meant that they're heading towards the 2nd wildcard spot, which would give an extra bit of breathing room.

Hurt in practice?

He can't have been hurt in the last game unless he did not realise at the time.

6 shifts totalling 5.45 in the last period.

He has been a big part of this team.
