THIS DATE IN FLYERS' HISTORY: April 13, 1985 - Flyers 6 at Rangers 5
In Game 3 of the best-of-five Division Semifinals, Tim Kerr's sensational performance led the Flyers to a 6-5 win at NY and a series sweep. Kerr scored four consecutive goals and became the first NHL player to score four goals in one PO period. Kerr set NHL records for fastest four PO goals (8:16) and most PPGs (3) in one PO period. He also set the record for the fastest hat trick in Flyers' PO history (3:24). The Flyers' PP was 4-for-6 and Kerr became the sixth NHL player to have three PPGs in one game. Kerr was the fifth NHL player to have four points in one PO period. Peter Zezel (1-3-4) also had four points. NY led 2-0 but the Flyers out-scored NY 5-1 in the second period.
BTW, watching games at this stage is about as hard for me as a playoff chase. I have so many mixed emotions as I watch. I want the players, particularly the young ones, to play well, but I know that we ultimately are more aided by a loss every game. Tough to reconcil.
