With 24 seconds remaining, a fight totalled 146 PIMs (63 to the Flyers, 83 to the Nordiques) including 12 10-minute misconducts.
  • April 9, 1981 -- In Game 2 in Philly, Bill Barber's (3-0-3) hat trick led the Flyers to an 8-5 win. Barber began the scoring 2:07 into the game and three seconds after a Dale Hunter minor expired. Barber scored later in the first period then completed his hat trick in the second period on a SHG after he stripped the puck from Anton Stastny which led to a thundering ovation inside the Spectrum. Barber later said "I was tickled to death. I never had a cheer like that." The Flyers led 3-1 after the first intermission and 5-3 through 40 minutes despite giving Quebec four powerplays (to zero) in the middle period. Ken Linseman made it 6-3 but the Nordiques narrowed the score to 6-5 with 6:35 to play before Mel Bridgman extended the lead and Bobby Clarke added an ENG.

Bouchard entered the game with a lifetime PO mark of 1-13. Rick St. Croix made 29 saves for the Flyers. The game was mainly quiet through the first two periods as the Flyers were assessed just three minors and Quebec only one. Late in the third period, minor battles resulted in three fighting majors to each side.
  • April 12, 1981 -- In Game 4 at Quebec, Dale Hunter's OT goal 37 seconds into OT evened the series 2-2 and gave Quebec a 4-3 OT win.

  • April 14, 1981 -- In Game 5 at Philly, the Flyers scored three times in the opening 5:07 of the third period and eliminated the Nordiques 5-2 in the deciding game of the Best-of-Five series. The line of Ken Linseman (1-2-3), Paul Holmgren (1-1-2) and Brian Propp (1-1-2) were a major part of the surge as each scored and combined for seven points in the decisive third period. Linseman began the barrage just 18 seconds into the period followed by Holmgren's goal at the 2:38 mark. Linseman, who was chosen the game's number one star, and Dale Hunter were issued misconducts 17 seconds after the Flyers pulled ahead 5-1. The Flyers controlled the puck throughout the contest.

Al Hill scored 10 minutes into the second period to give Philly a 2-1 lead. The Flyers held a 37-18 shots advantage. Pete Peeters made 16 saves. Bouchard made 32 stops. SERIES RECAP: The home teams won all five games. Ken Linseman (2-8-10), Paul Holmgren (2-4-6) and Al Hill (2-4-6) led the offense.

The Nordiques were led by Peter Stastny (2-8-10), Anton Stastny (4-3-7), Michel Goulet (3-4-7), Dale Hunter (3-3-6) and Jacques Richard (3-3-6). Reggie Leach, who was benched for Game 4, had no points. Bobby Clarke (1-0-1) had just one point. Rick MacLeish (1-1-2) had just two points. Bill Barber was scoreless in the final three games after five goals (5-0-5) in the first two contests. Rick St. Croix stopped 64 of 74 (.865) shots and Pete Peeters was 36-for-43 (.837). Dan Bouchard stopped 140 of 159 (.881) shots; Michel Plasse was 5-6 (.833). Quebec owned a 19-6-5 record in 29 games since acquiring goalie Dan Bouchard in late January. Philly was just 4-5-5 in the last 14.

  • October 22, 1981 -- The Flyers scored three times in the opening period, with Ilkka Sinisalo (0-2-2) assisting on the latter two, en route to a 3-2 home victory.

Marian Stastny (2-0-2) scored in the second and third periods for Quebec. Michel Plasse made 34 saves.
  • January 19, 1982 -- Brian Propp's PPG with under eight to play gave Philly a 2-2 road tie but team leader Bobby Clarke suffered a broken left ankle which sidelined him for the next 18 games. Rick St. Croix and Dan Bouchard both starred with St. Croix making many point blank saves. Ray Allison fought twice vs. Pierre Aubry and Mario Marois ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4Xe2QYWv8c ). Ilkka Sinisalo returned to the Flyers' lineup after missing ten games with a cracked wrist bone; he picked up an assist. The next day, the Flyers acquired Darryl Sittler from Toronto.
  • February 6, 1982 -- The Flyers fell to 0-5-4 in the last nine games with a 4-3 loss in Quebec. Real Cloutier (1-1-2) and Marian Stastny (1-1-2) were among five Nordiques who had two points.
  • October 7, 1982 -- Mark Howe made his Flyers' debut in Philly's 9-5 season-opening victory in the Spectrum. Howe was bloodied the first time on the ice as a pass from teammate Paul Holmgren deflected and clipped him in the mouth; however, Howe scored on his first shot to make it 3-2 in the second period. With the game tied 5-5 in the third period, the Flyers tied a team record by scoring three times in 35 seconds and added a fourth in a span of 2:06. With former Flyer Rick Lapointe in the box, Brian Propp's PPG gave Philly a 6-5 lead and then Bill Barber and Ray Allison followed immediately to boost the advantage to 8-5 with 10:17 remaining. The Flyers were led by Allison (1-3-4), Barber (2-1-3), Bobby Clarke (0-3-3) and Dave Michayluk, who, in his second career NHL game, scored the only two goals in his 14-game regular season career and was named the game's top star. Barber also scored in the game's opening minute. Seventeen Flyers' skaters registered a point (Tom Gorence, the exception). Peter Stastny (2-1-3), who scored two PPGs in the first period, Marion Stastny (0-3-3) and Mario Marois (0-3-3) had three points for Quebec.

  • October 16, 1982 -- Bobby Clarke scored twice in the Flyers' 4-3 road win. The Flyers trailed 2-0 after one period on two goals by Real Cloutier.

  • December 9, 1982 -- Ron Flockhart scored twice and Pelle Lindbergh made 27 saves in the Flyers' 4-1 home win. Paul Holmgren added a goal and an assist. Ron Sutter, who played as part of a 10-game NHL stint prior to a return to Lethbridge, gave Philly a 2-0 lead with his first NHL goal. The Flyers outshot Quebec 38-28. Glen Cochrane bloodied Wally Weir in a fight.
  • October 25, 1983 -- The 6-2-1 Flyers beat the 7-2-1 Nordiques 4-2 in Quebec in a game that featured just 37 shots (Quebec had 20). Bobby Clarke was named top star of the game, much of it due to his defensive work. Ray Allison, Tim Kerr and Rich Sutter, who scored in his second consecutive game after being acquired in a trade, gave Philly a 3-0 lead.
  • October 27, 1983 -- Dave Poulin's SHG with 5:16 to play helped to lift the Flyers to an eventual 4-3 home win. The goal gave the Flyers a 4-2 lead but Tony McKegney scored 13 seconds later to make it 4-3. Rich Sutter scored in his third straight game as a Flyer, the first player in team history to accomplish the feat. Rick MacLeish had two assists.
  • January 14, 1984 -- Brian Propp tied the game with 1:59 to play in a game that ended in a 3-3 tie in Quebec. Bob Froese made 36 saves for the Flyers. Each of the three Stastny's had two points.

  • December 6, 1984 -- Bruce Bell scored a first period PPG then Tim Kerr matched him in the second period in a game that finished 1-1 in the Spectrum. Dan Bouchard (38 saves) and Pelle Lindbergh (31 saves) were the goaltenders. The three Stastnys were held to a combined four shots and Peter Zezel was a large reason.
  • February 14, 1985 -- Tim Kerr (2-1-3) and Brian Propp (1-3-4) scored in the opening period and led the Flyers to a 6-3 home win. Ron Sutter snapped a 2-2 tie late in the second period. Kerr's second goal upped the lead to 4-2 in the third period. Quebec was 3-for-5 on PPs.
  • March 2, 1985 -- Paul Gillis scored twice to lead the Nordiques to a 4-2 home win. The Nordiques went ahead 2-1 with a pair of goals scored within 50 seconds in the first period. Quebec pulled ahead 4-1 in the second period with two goals scored in 18 seconds. Mario Gosselin made 27 saves. Two fights in the game including a brief Ron Sutter-Dale Hunter wrestling match four seconds into the third period -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gu_CGd1IlI . The Flyers were 6-0-2 in the prior eight games against Quebec.
  • May 5, 1985 -- In Game One of the Wales Conference Finals at Quebec, despite sensational goaltending from Pelle Lindbergh, who made 42 saves, the Flyers dropped a 2-1 decision when Peter Stastny scored on a 55-footer 6:20 into OT, his second straight OT GWG. Quebec and Philly swapped third period goals, the Flyers' goal credited to Brad McCrimmon when the Nords' Pat Price redeflected a shot into his own net. Mario Gosselin had 28 saves in the victory. While Dave Poulin returned to the lineup after missing all the NYI series and most of the first round matchup against the Rangers with a ligament tear in his left knee, the Flyers' Tim Kerr suffered a strained right knee and was lost for the balance of this series. Quebec advanced to the Conference Finals against the Flyers by defeating Montreal in Game 7 on a Stastny goal. The Nords, despite having 22 fewer regular season points (91-113), had the home ice advantage since=2 0the Adams Division had more wins in head-to-head competition against the Patrick in the regular season (playoff format at the time).
  • May 7, 1985 -- In Game 2 at Quebec, Pelle Lindbergh made 27 saves and the Flyers' played an impressive game of forechecking and team defense in defeating the Nordiques 4-2. Dave Poulin scored a SHG in the first period, off a terrific feed by Murray Craven ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNj7WnKgc2U ), then Ilkka Sinisalo and Craven (1-1-2) connected in the second for a 3-0 lead after two periods. Joe Paterson made it 4-1. There were three fights in the first period including Rick Tocchet-Pat Price ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73NehVBEPIQ ) 30 seconds into the game. Lindsay Carson fought Wilf Paiement in the middle of the first period ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2wjOd1WBJg ) and about five minutes later Doug Crossman fought Paul Gillis. Paterson fought Gillis in the second period. Poulin suffered suffered cracked ribs courtesy of Mario Marois' stick-work and also a left knee injury which happened immediately following his goal.

  • May 9, 1985 -- In Game 3 at Philadelphia, Joe Paterson (1-2-3) and Len Hachborn (0-3-3) played important roles during the Flyers 4-2 win. Paterson, who fought Randy Moller 16 seconds into the game, tied the score 2-2 early in the second period and then assisted on the PP GWG by Ilkka Sinisalo later in the period. Pelle Lindbergh made 21 saves. The Flyers outshot Quebec 35-23. The Flyers went 3-for-6 on the PP. For the third straight game, the Flyers suffered a key injury. Brad McCrimmon was driven from behind by Wilf Paiement and lost for the rest of the POs, including the Stanley Cup Finals, with a separated left shoulder that required surgery. The Flyers dressed five d-men in the game for the third consecutive game in this series leading to increased playing time for Ed Hospodar and among the heroes was Brad Marsh, whose shot-blocking skills were on display in the contest, rewarded as the game's number one star. Hospodar said of the hit "It was from behind, it could have been charging or boarding." Afterwards, Paiement said "If he's hurt, that is too bad. Maybe he just tripped himself as he went into the boards." However, Doug Crossman said "In here, (Flyers' dressing room), we call it a dirty check" while Mike Keenan said "It was definitely a foul, a charge. I am not sure why the ref (Bryan Lewis) didn't call it."

  • May 12, 1985 -- In Game 4 at Philadelphia, Mario Gosselin made 34 saves and the Nordiques recorded a 5-3 victory to even the series. It was the Flyers' first home loss in 21 games and first since February 2. Dale Hunter scored on a 60-footer with three seconds left on a five-minute major to teammate Peter Stastny to give Quebec a 1-0 lead. The Flyers trailed 2-0 and 3-1 but tied the score in the third period with the team's third PPG. Alain Cote scored 4:32 into the third period for the GWG and Brad Maxwell added a PPG to conclude the scoring. Philly went 3-for-5 on the PP and outshot Quebec 37-21. In the two home games, Philly scored seven goals and went 6-for-11 on the PP. The Flyers were without Tim Kerr, Dave Poulin and Brad McCrimmon. Dave Brown was tossed from the game in the first period.
  • May 14, 1985 -- In Game 5 at Quebec, Pelle Lindbergh's sensational play included 30 saves and the duo of Murray Craven and Joe Paterson, the two players acquired in a controversial preseason trade, scored in the third period leading Philadelphia to a dramatic 2-1 home win. In between the second and third periods, in what was generally considered a listless 40 minutes by the Flyers, head coach Mike Keenan tossed a table of beverages and then stood atop challenging his players in a towering display of admonishment and requisition. Afterwards, Craven said "Mike said we didn't show we were hungry enough and that they wanted it more than we did. Mike gave us a very stiff talking to." Paterson's PPG, his third goal of the series (the only three in his Flyers' career) 1:00 into the third, tied the score and then Craven tallied with under five minutes left. Craven's goal, which he later called "my most important ever," was the result of a perfect 2-on-1 play off a feed from Brian Propp. Paterson and Craven were acquired by GM Bob Clarke the day prior to the regular season opener from Detroit for Darryl Sittler. Dave Poulin added inspiration when he returned with a flak jacket despite broken ribs. With 2:10 to play, Quebec had a goal disallowed by ref Kerry Fraser who ruled Peter Stastny kicked the puck into the net. After the game, Nordiques' head coach Michel Bergeron, later fined $5,000 for his outburst, showed various video clips to a group of about 50 reporters saying his team was unfairly treated by the refs. He also said "Something is going to happen next game." Of particular frustration was what he felt was an Ed Hospodar spear against Anton Stastny in the third period; Peter Stastny retaliated and earned a five-minute cross-checking major compared to two minutes for Hospodar. Rick Tocchet and Randy Moller fought 22 seconds into the game. In the last minute of the opening period, Paterson and Jimmy Mann fought a few seconds after Tocchet and Wilf Paiement were issued 10-minute misconducts. J.F. Sauve gave Quebec a 1-0 lead with a 5-on-3 PPG midway through regulation. Quebec outshot Philly 31-21.

  • May 16, 1985 -- In Game 6 in Philly, Dave Poulin's electrifying goal and Pelle Lindbergh's 15 saves helped the Flyers oust Quebec 3-0 and advance to the Stanley Cup Finals to face Edmonton. Rick Tocchet put the Flyers up 1-0 after the first period. The Flyers faced a daunting challenge at the 1:08 mark of the second period when Joe Paterson (0:31) and Brian Propp (1:08) were in the box due to separate minors putting the team at a 5-on-3 disadvantage. Poulin, wearing a flak jacket to protect broken ribs suffered because of Mario Marois's stickwork earlier in the series, intercepted a blue-line pass from Marois and skated the length of the ice for a breakaway goal (at 2:01) which instantly became a classic play in team and NHL history ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0regyljId0A ). Later in the second, Doug Crossman added a PPG. The Flyers held a 36-15 shots advantage. Mario Gosselin, in the loss, made 33 saves. Pat Price of Quebec said "They executed to perfection. They won every inch of the ice. I know my face was up against the glass all night." Alain Cote, of the Nordiques said, "They played hockey tonight the way the game should be played. That's what real hockey is." SERIES RECAP: Pelle Lindbergh surrendered just 10 goals in six games. Joe Paterson (3-3-6), Brian Propp (2-4-6) and Murray Craven (3-1-4) were the leaders on offense. Ron Sutter's defensive work against Peter Stastny, who later said "The Flyers were disciplined throughout the series," was exemplary. Four Nordiques had four points apiece, including Michel Goulet (0-4-4) but he was held to zero goals despite scoring 50+ the last three regular seasons and eleven in the 11 prior 1985 PO games.
  • October 17, 1985 -- Despite a 43-14 shots advantage, the Flyers lost 2-1 at home as Mark Kumpel scored twice and Richard Sevigny made 42 saves for the Nordiques. Sevigny turned aside 19 of 20 shots in the first period. Murray Craven gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead 18 seconds after Dave Brown and Jimmy Mann fought. The Flyers outshot Quebec 9-1 in the second period but Kumpel scored on Quebec's lone shot and that goal proved to be the GWG. In the third period, the Flyers outshot the Nordiques 14-2 for a total of 23-3 in the last two periods. Pelle Lindbergh faced just 14 shots on goal. Kumpel and Mario Marois combined for four points and six shots.

  • October 30, 1986 -- Brian Propp (1-3-4) led the offense, Ron Hextall made 33 saves and the Flyers had a 3-0 lead in the first period en route to a 6-3 win in Philly. During second period hostilities, the Flyers' Ed Hospodar picked up a five-minute charging major which led to an enraged Dale Hunter being penalized then ejected as he chastised officials from the penalty box. Quebec trailed 4-1 as the third period started but out-shot Philly 17-2 over the final 20 minutes. Scott Mellanby's brilliant goal, his second in the NHL, gave Philly a 5-1 lead. The Flyers' PP went 2-for-3 shaking off a 6-for-50 season-long slump. Brad McCrimmon returned to the lineup after missing the season's first nine games over a contract dispute.
  • March 21, 1987 -- Doug Crossman scored a PPG with 2:06 to play and Glenn "Chico" Resch made 34 saves in a 2-2 tie at Quebec. Each team scored in the second and third periods. Lane Lambert gave Quebec a 2-1 lead.

Michel Goulet scored two PPGs for Quebec but was on the ice for all three Flyers' goals. There were three fights in the game.
  • November 28, 1987 -- The Flyers scored four unanswered goals in a span of 6:30 in the second period en route to a 6-3 victory in Quebec. Leading 4-3 in the third, the Flyers got goals from Ilkka Sinisalo (1-1-2) and Mark Howe, with Dave Poulin (0-3-3) and Brian Propp (0-2-2) assisting on both goals. Doug Crossman and Peter Zezel had a goal and an assist each. The game featured five fights -- Craig Berube-Gord Donnelly ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQ0fkAO-e7U ), who fought twice, Rick Tocchet-Terry Carkner ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAc8A7oYxhs ), Don Nachbaur-Lane Lambert ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5-53Bhz_kI ) and Scott Mellanby flattening Jeff Jackson:

Mark Howe and Craven (2-0-2) scored 10 seconds apart then Craven followed his own goal with a second score 29 seconds later to make it 3-1 Flyers 2:59 into the second period. Peter Zezel (1-2-3) had three points in the second period. Kjell Samuelsson and Ilkka Sinisalo (2-1-3) were both credited with being +5. Ron Hextall made 32 saves. Quebec was led by Marc Fortier (0-4-4), Lane Lambert (1-2-3) and Michel Goulet (2-0-2). Mario Brunetta surrendered seven goals and started, likely, because Quebec had a game the following night against the Rangers and a loss by New York would have given the Nordiques two draft picks in the top five of the upcoming draft (Michel Bergeron left Quebec to become the Rangers' head coach in June 1987).
  • July 25, 1988 -- Greg Smyth and a draft pick (John Tanner) were sent to the Nordiques for Terry Carkner.

The Flyers entered the game with the franchise's first 0-3-0 start.
  • December 9, 1989 -- In one of the oddest endings to any Flyers' game, Joe Sakic (2-2-4) scored on a penalty shot with 23 seconds to play then Lucien Deblois netted the game-tying goal with seven seconds remaining in the third period of a 6-6 tie in Quebec. Sakic was awarded the penalty shot when referee Paul Stewart ruled that Ken Wregget intentionally dislodged the net during a scramble. Then Wregget unknowingly negated a delayed icing call when he played the puck where Deblois awaited and tapped a shot off Mark Howe's glove. Rick Tocchet was ejected for an accidental high-stick late in the opening period. Philly led 3-0 fourteen minutes into the game, then held leads of 3-2, 4-2, 4-3, 5-3, 5-4 and 6-4, the sixth goal coming with under five minutes to play in the third period.

Philadelphia led 3-0 at the 9:32 mark when Quebec switched goalies from Ron Tugnutt (3 saves, 6 shots) to John Tanner (31 saves, 33 shots) and the change gave the Nords an instant boost. Less than a minute later, Scott Mellanby and Steven Finn fought. Joe Sakis (2-1-3) scored consecutive goals then Quebec added another to tie the game 3-3 through the first period. The teams split second period goals. Philly outshot Quebec 39-18. It was the Flyers' first home game after the death of Kathy Kerr, the 30-year old wife of Tim Kerr who passed away two days earlier.
  • November 10, 1990 -- Rick Tocchet set the momentum with a goal 12 seconds into the game and the Flyers led 4-1 after the opening period of an eventual 5-2 win at Quebec. Tim Kerr (1-2-3), Tocchet (1-1-2), Gord Murphy (1-1-2) and Pelle Eklund (0-2-2) had multi-point efforts.

Following Lomakin's two goals, Mike Ricci evened the game 3-3 later in the second period. Mark Pederson and Brad Jones scored 35 seconds apart in the third period. Rick Tocchet surpassed Paul Holmgren with the most PIMs in team history. Dan Kordic, who also got into a verbal battle with his brother John, fought Wayne van Dorp in the first period.

Prior to the game, the Flyers honored former player Reggie Leach and legendary broadcaster Gene Hart by admitting them to the team's Hall of Fame.

  • June 30, 1992 -- The much publicized deal involving Eric Lindros was finalized. The Flyers sent Mike Ricci, Peter Forsberg, Steve Duchesne, Ron Hextall, Kerry Huffman, Chris Simon, a 1993 1st round pick used to select Jocelyn Thibeault, a 1994 first round pick used to select Nolan Baumgartner and $15 (US) million. On June 27, arbitrator Larry Bertuzzi, ruled the Nordiques no longer held Lindros' rights and that either the Flyers or New York Rangers would receive the player. Quebec drafted Lindros with the top pick in the 1991 NHL Draft but Lindros refused to sign with the team. The Nordiques conducted trade talks with as many as seven teams the night before the 1992 NHL Draft. Both the Flyers and Rangers maintained valid deals with the Nordiques made June 20. Bertuzzi, the arbitrator, eventually ruled the Flyers-Nordiques' verbal deal, which came at 10:30 a.m. on June 20, was valid and not the trade with New York more than an hour later. More than a month later, on July 21, a revised trade was finalized since the original and still unconfirmed deal made prior to the 1992 Draft included the Flyers' 1992 first round pick (the Flyers chose Ryan Sittler). Still in July, Bertuzzi ruled that the teams had to agree on a player and a pick to compensate Quebec for not having the Flyers' 1992 first-round pick. The teams agreed upon Simon but the Flyers wanted to include a 1994 2nd round pick and the Nordiques preferred a 1st rounder, the arbitrator ruled in favor of Quebec. Said Flyers' head coach Bill Dineen "It wasn't us that made the mistake. It was Quebec that went ahead and made the deal with New York. Now, we're paying the extra penalty. I think they should have been penalized." As Sports Illustrated wrote it: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vau...75/2/index.htm
  • September 19, 1992 -- Eric Lindros had two points and played approximately 25 minutes in his first NHL game, a 4-3 preseason win over the Nordiques in front of 17,226 in the Spectrum. The goal, against Stephane Fiset, came on a 5-on-3 man advantage as did Mark Recchi's GWG which Lindros set up. Dan Kordic of Philly and Chris Simon of Quebec fought in a healthy scrap.
  • September 20, 1992 -- Quebec recorded an 11-4 preseason home win against a team that did not include Eric Lindros. Joe Sakic had a hat trick and Mike Ricci (1-4-5) had five points. Nordiques' goalie Ron Hextall picked up a 10-minute misconduct for yelling at the referees and also challenged Flyers' skaters as the teams left the ice after the first period. Tommy Soderstrom gave up ten goals behind a porous defense. Kevin Dineen snapped his stick and tossed it into the crowd earning him an ejection.
  • October 13, 1992 -- Eric Lindros made his much anticipated Quebec debut but it was the Nordiques who prevailed, 6-3. Mike Ricci (2 goals) scored the GWG while on the PP with 3:57 to play and Mats Sundin (1-2-3) picked up three points in a four-goal third period. Ricci started the scoring 59 seconds into the first period after Lindros, on his first shift, drilled Bill Lindsay but that left Ricci open in the slot. Steve Kasper evened the score for the Flyers on a SHG about four minutes later. Philly was whistled for four minors in the first 6:55 of the game (Quebec had zero). The Nordiques led 2-1 after an early second period tally by Mike Hough. Lindros scored twice (PPG then a SHG) in the third period sandwiched by an Alexei Gusarov goal. At that point , it was 4-4 then Ricci, Steve Duchesne (with 2:17 to play) and Sundin (ENG) finished the scoring. Lindros had one possible goal overruled (deflected by his hand after he and goalie Ron Hextall jostled for the loose puck) and another shot that rang off the pipe. Duchesne was penalized for leveling Lindros along the boards to the delight of the home crowd which mocked Lindros throughout the game. Some wore diapers over their clothing, had pacifiers in the mouths and atop faux Stanley Cups and some pushed baby carriages through the halls. Many items were tossed onto the ice including baby bottles, eggs, batteries, coins and even a .22 caliber bullet. Lindros said "If I ever have a child, I am set for life with pacifiers." Nordiques' President Marcel Aubut said "That's not bad in show business. Usually, the beginning of the season is quiet. As far as the business side, I'd like to have him here every night. Maybe we should have sent him in our own division." The Flyers were 13-2-4 in the last 19 regular season games played in this series prior to the defeat.
  • December 3, 1992 -- Claude Boivin (1-1-2) scored in OT to lift the Flyers to a 3-2 home victory. Mats Sundin tied the score in the final minute of regulation.

Owen Nolan scored the GWG on a PP in the third period on a disputed goal that Flyers' goalie Ron Hextall said "I am 100% sure that goal was a joke." The video reviews available to replay judge Mike Condon were inconclusive but an additional replay shown only on the center ice scoreboard appeared to have shown a kick and was more substantial. Peter Forsberg made his NHL debut for Quebec. Dave Brown and Chris Simon hooked up in a classic heavyweight battle.
  • January 31, 1995 -- Joe Sakic (1-3-4) had four points and Stephane Fiset made 20 saves in Quebec's 5-2 home win. Eric Lindros evened the game and Josef Beranek gave Philly a 2-1 lead.

And it hit my glove and my stick. My hand never left the stick." Patrick Roy commented that "It hit his glove and he made a forward motion. To me, it is enough to uncall the goal. It is hard for the official to make the right call. He was in a tough position with a lot of people going to the net." The officials also reviewed the play to see if Keith Primeau touched the puck with a high stick. Flyers' head coach Bill Barber remarked "Primeau came to me right off the bat and said 'Coach, there's nothing to worry about. They can look at any angle they want.' My concern was why the double review?" Daymond Langkow recorded three points (0-3-3) for the Flyers and set up the tying goal with a terrific feed.

THIS DATE IN FLYERS' HISTORY: April 27, 1989 -- Pittsburgh 2 at Flyers 6

Derrick Smith (2-0-2), who provided his usual tenacious forecheck and was named the game's top star, and Tim Kerr (10-4-14 through six games), who picked up his 14th point in this series, both scored twice and the Flyers evened the best-of-seven series at 3 games apiece with a 6-2 home win. Mario Lemieux was held to two shots, zero points and was a minus-3 as he was continually frustrated by the Flyers' checking line of Smith-Dave Poulin-Scott Mellanby. Flyers' head coach Paul Holmgren said "You know what you get from Derrick Smith. He's a tremendous forechecker and a hard worker and it's nice to see his work get rewarded."

8 of next 11 on the road (plus the Winter Classic) ... if we can stay at the top of the conference through this stretch with all the injuries, it'll be a job well done.

Regardless of injuries, this team should still beat an awful Colorado team.

Well, they can't do worse than the previous game I guess.

Flyers / Nordiques series in the conference final is one of my all time favorites. Appropriate to what is happening now... I mean Joe Patterson? A forgotten hero of the Flyers past. I STILL THINK IF MCRIMMON DOES NOT GET HURT IT IS ANOTHER CUP. It would be a very, very nice gesture from the Flyers to pay tribute to his memory at the Classic.

As always a great GDT with great memories. Thanks MSE.

Read Jay Greenberg's column from today. Limited space probably reduced his text but he (perhaps) forgot McCrimmon.

Had a stretch there of OP photos working. That went awry to say the least last game. After a couple of games of no points, seeing Danny B back on the sheet with number(s) in the G or A column would be much appreciated considering the current health of this team.

I'll say he gets 2 goals in a 4-2 win.

And don't think I don't see you creeping back there, Harts.

You know... this just feels like a game where a callup (in this case Holmstrom) comes in and scores a goal and 2 assists. Might not play like it, but will somehow get a 3 point night.

Bounce back game.

Time for JvR to step up and silence his critics, and shouldn't Voracek get a hattrick a few games ago? I think he's due. Timonen deserves a goal as well.
