1979-1984:
  • December 28, 1979 -- The Flyers won 5-3 in front of 16,038, the largest hockey crowd to date in Winnipeg (WHA and NHL). Pete Peeters made 32 saves and five different players recorded goals. Bob Kelly (1-1-2) and Bobby Clarke (0-2-2) had two points and Brian Propp's unassisted goal late in the second period made it 2-1 and put Philly ahead for good. Propp had two bus loads of supporters make the journey from Saskatchewan. It was the Flyers' 32nd straight game without a loss (streak reached an NHL record 35 games) and the team's W-L-T record improved to 23-1-10.
  • January 10, 1980 -- Bill Barber's (1-1-2) breakaway goal with 6:34 to play capped a Flyers' rally in which they out-scored Winnipeg 4-2 in the third period en route to a 5-4 home win. Rick MacLeish, Mel Bridgman (1-1-2) and Bob Kelly scored in a span of 63 seconds midway in the third period to put Philly on top 4-3. Morris Lukowich's (2-0-2) second goal of the period made it 4-4 with 7:16 to play. Barber's GWG was the Flyers' fourth score in a team-record (since broken) span of 2:50. The Flyers outshot the Jets 17-7 in the third period. Winnipeg goalie Pierre Hamel, who made 27 saves on 28 shots, suffered a bruised right knee and was replaced 6+ minutes into the third period by backup Gary Smith who allowed four goals on 14 shots in a span of 12:12. Prior to the game, Smith jokingly raised his hands and skated along the ice while Flyers' fans applauded the home team in their first appearance since their NHL-record unbeaten streak was stopped at Minnesota.

  • January 25, 1980 -- The Flyers recorded a 5-4 win at Winnipeg in a battle of the NHL's best and worst teams. Behn Wilson (1-1-2) and Rick MacLeish (1-1-2) both had two points and Pete Peeters made 26 saves. Wilson and Bob Kelly scored in a span of 21 seconds which gave Philly a 4-1 lead in the middle period. The Flyers finished the night with a 32-3-12 record (76 points) and the Jets were 13-32-5 (31 points).
  • February 14, 1980 -- The Flyers completed the season sweep with a 5-1 victory in Philly led by Pete Peeters' 33 saves and nine points by the Rat Patrol Line.

  • November 23, 1980 -- Bob Dailey (2-0-2), Bobby Clarke (1-1-2), Reggie Leach (0-2-2) and Brian Propp (0-2-2) each had two points in a 3-1 Flyers' home win. Dailey returned after missing the prior six games due to a knee injury and scored on a 55-footer in the first period and a 35-footer in the second period. The Jets had a record of 1-17-5 and were winless in the last 17 games. Pete Peeters' shutout bid ended with 5:29 to play.
  • January 2, 1981 --Pierre Hamel made 36 saves and led the Jets, with a team record of 2-28-7, to a stunning 4-3 win at Winnipeg. Philadelphia held a 39-24 shots advantage. The Flyers held a 15-7 shot advantage in the opening period, but a PPG by Anders Steen with seven seconds remaining gave the Jets a 4-1 lead. Flyers d-man Jimmy Watson played his last game of the 1980-81 season as he underwent spinal fusion surgery to relieve chronic back problems.
  • February 27, 1981 -- Bill Barber (3-0-3) had a hat trick and Pete Peeters made 27 saves in the Flyers' 6-3 win at Winnipeg. Philly led 3-0 at the 8:54 mark with Barber scoring twice in 31 seconds. Morris Lukowich scored two PPGs in a span of 2:36 late in the opening period. Barber completed the hat trick with his 40th goal in the second period. Ken Linseman (1-1-2) and Reggie Leach (1-2-3) scored in the third period. Ron Flockhart (0-3-3) had three assists.
  • March 5, 1981 -- The Flyers led 5-0 after the first period en route to a 10-1 home win. Al Hill (2-0-2) scored twice in the first period. Ken Linseman (2-0-2) scored twice in a span of 1:01 to give Philly a 7-0 lead in the second period. The Flyers led 8-0 midway in the third period before Winnipeg scored. Rick MacLeish (2-0-2) scored twice in the third period. Behn Wilson (1-2-3), Glen Cochrane (1-2-3), Paul Holmgren (0-3-3) and Bobby Clarke (0-3-3) each had three points. Clarke concluded the night with 997 career points (299 goals and 698 assists). The Flyers held a 41-22 shots advantage including 17-5 in the opening period. Pete Peeters made 21 saves. Markus Mattsson surrendered all ten goals. 15 of the 17 Flyers skaters (Reid Bailey and Mike Busniuk the exceptions) had points.
  • December 1, 1981 -- Pete Peeters made 28 saves, including 17-for-17 in the first period, helping the Flyers to a 2-1 home win. Bobby Clarke scored the go-ahead goal 2:55 into the game and Paul Holmgren made it 2-0 in the second period. Highlights ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTwqw3eHYes ).

Doug Soetaert made 27 saves. The day prior to the game, longtime Flyer Reggie Leach asked the club to trade him due to diminished playing time. "I asked to be traded if I wasn't going to be played regularly. It could be that I might not be coming back from this road trip and that is why I packed a little extra," said Leach. This game marked the fifth in succession in which he was scratched by head coach Pat Quinn, though he played the next eleven before being waived days after Bob McCammon replaced the fired Quinn the following month.
  • March 2, 1982 -- Willy Lindstrom (5-1-6) scored five goals, Morris Lukowich (0-4-4) had four points and Doug Soetaert made 48 saves in the Jets' first ever win in Philadelphia, 7-6. The Flyers outshot the Jets 54-32, including a game-high 10 shots from Bill Barber. The Flyers were led by Ray Allison (3-0-3), who had his first NHL hat trick, and Ken Linseman (0-4-4). Winnipeg had six one-goal leads: 1-0, 2-1, 3-2, 4-3, 6-5 and 7-6. The Flyers cut the gap with consecutive goals to make it 6-5 but Lindstrom made it 7-5. Each team scored three times in the third period. Pete Peeters gave up 7 goals on 32 shots. Head coach Pat Quinn said "We have to have good goaltending. It's one of the areas that has to be good and it has not been good as of late." The next day the Flyers recalled Pelle Lindbergh who started March 4 and played in his third NHL game. Bobby Clarke returned to the lineup after missing the previous 18 games with a broken foot/ankle. Frank Bathe scored in his first game since November 14 (herniated disc in his back). At the end of the season, Bathe was named the Barry Ashbee Award winner as the Flyers' best defenseman despite playing just 28 regular season games. Highlights ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTwqw3eHYes )
  • October 31, 1982 -- The Flyers reunited the line of Brian Propp (2-0-2), Ron Flockhart and Ray Allison (0-2-2) for the first time this season and it paid off with a 3-2 win at Winnipeg.

In July 1989, the Flyers traded Shawn Cronin to the Jets for futures but the Flyers canceled the Jets' owing anything in return in order to protect Peeters and Acton in the waiver draft -- something the Jets could do because they had available space while the Flyers did not. In December 1989, the NHL ruled the transaction was against League rules and fined the Flyers and Jets $10,000 each claiming the bylaws stipulated that loaning of players is prohibited. NHL President John Ziegler said that even though there was no evidence to contradict the teams' claimed innocence ''the absence of a legally binding agreement to retrade does not mean there was no loan of the players. All legal niceties aside, the bottom line is that immediately prior to the waiver draft, the players belonged to Philadelphia and immediately after the draft, they belonged to Philadelphia. In the interim, they were protected from the draft. It is clear to me this was a loan of players.''
  • October 8, 1989 -- Doug Smail (2-1-3) and Tom Draper (30 saves) led the Jets to a 5-3 victory in Winnipeg despite a hat trick for Rick Tocchet (3-0-3). Pete Peeters made his first appearance in his return to the Flyers and made 29 stops. Smail sealed the win with an ENG.

"It could've been a different game, that was a big break at that point," Vanbiesbrouck said. "It took a bit of the life out of them. Everybody was going to think they were tied, but when it doesn't happen, you have a tendency to let down. We took advantage of that, especially in the second period."

The winning goal was questioned by multiple Flyers who felt the play was offside as many players said one linesman was raising his arm to call offsides while the other waved off the violation. "We all thought it was offsides and the players reacted to it. But we still have to kill off the power play," said Flyers' head coach John Stevens. "I guess the other guys, the other team, thought it maybe was an offside," Matthew Lombardi said. Blair Betts suffered a severe shoulder injury and missed action until December 17.

2010-2014:
  • February 22, 2011 -- Shane Doan scored a PPG 2:41 into OT and Ilya Bryzgalov made 37 saves in Phoenix's 3-2 win at Philly. The Flyers led 1-0 through two periods but Eric Belanger and Taylor Pyatt gave the Coyotes a 2-1 advantage before Claude Giroux tied the score with 1:13 to play in regulation. Jody Shelley needed 60 stitches to close three cuts in his forehead after a fight with Nolan Yonkman ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcAUKvRu-6w ). Scottie Upshall was suspended two games for a late hit which resulted in a labral tear of the shoulder to Oskars Bartulis ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LMqknpgR60 ). Bartulis was playing in his first game since January 11 but missed the remainder of the regular season and playoffs.
  • June 7, 2011 -- Future unrestricted free agent Ilya Bryzgalov was traded by Phoenix for minor-leaguer Matt Clackson, a 2012 third-round draft pick (later sent to Pittsburgh) and a conditional pick (Harrison Ruopp) which was later specified as Pittsburgh's 2011 third-round draft selection which was acquired by the Flyers in 2010 as part of discussions involving UFA Dan Hamhuis.
  • November 17, 2011 -- Matt Read's goal with 18.6 seconds left in regulation gave the Flyers a 2-1 home win. Ilya Brzygalov made 30 saves in his first game against his former team. James van Riemsdyk snapped a scoreless tie 12:37 into the second period. Mike Smith made 40 saves and Mikkel Boedker scored early in the third period for the Coyotes. The Flyers held a 42-31 shots advantage including 30-15 over the last two periods. Martin Hanzal's check on Chris Pronger ( http://video.flyers.nhl.com/videocen...2&event=PHI709 ). Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYpTdta3y9I
  • December 3, 2011 -- The Flyers led 4-0 after the opening period en route to a 4-2 win at Phoenix. Ilya Bryzgalov made 36 saves and the game's first star Matt Read (1-2-3) had three points. Claude Giroux made it 3-0 off a terrific feed from Kimmo Timonen. The Flyers' PP was 2-for-3. Mike Smith (13 saves, 17 shots) was replaced by Jason LaBarbera (13 saves, 13 shots) after the first period. Phoenix had 49 hits (14 credited to Shane Doan) to 16 for the Flyers. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqWMAem7S-s
  • October 11, 2013 -- Thomas Greiss made 36 saves and Oliver Ekman-Larsson's PPG with 13 second left in the second period snapped a 1-1 tie in Phoenix's 2-1 win in Philadelphia. Steve Mason made 29 saves. The Flyers fell to 1-4-0 on the season and lost for the first time under Craig Berube.
  • January 4, 2014 -- The Flyers rallied from a 3-1 deficit to win 5-3 at Phoenix. The rally began with a late second period goal by Brayden Schenn and was completed with three goals in the third period. Wayne Simmonds tied the game 3-3 on the powerplay. Jake Voracek (1-1-2) scored the GWG with about eight minutes to play. Steve Mason made 26 saves. The Coyotes scored twice in the first three minutes of the second period to go ahead 2-0. Scott Hartnell scored 17 seconds after the second goal. Phoenix led 3-1 6:47 into the second period. About two minutes after the Coyotes pulled ahead, Jay Rosehill fought Paul Bissonette ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BashI3QX0KA ). The Flyers' PK was a perfect 4-for-4 including a minor called with 3:29 remaining.

THIS DATE IN FLYERS' HISTORY: January 4, 1979

Bernie Parent was sensational and the Flyers scored three PPGs in the second period of a 3-2 win against the Islanders. Clarke Gilles' two goals gave NY a 2-0 lead but Reggie Leach and Bobby Clarke scored PPGs 39 seconds apart during a 4-minute penalty to Gerry Hart. Parent took over from there and squelched the Islanders in the last period where the Flyers were outshot 14-5. It would be the second to last victory for Parent in his Hall-of-Fame NHL career.

On at the same time as the Birds...what to do? Ugh, I don't like late football games.

I think it's time to call someone else up from the Phantoms. McGinn, Cousins, Akeson, Straka, Holmstrom, I don't care, I just want to see someone besides Rosehill and Rinaldo.

Let's go Flyers and Eagles!!!

I'm hoping they do not rush Read back into the lineup. Downie and Lecavalier both came back early and have been meh ever since...

Also please insert VandeVelde for Rosehill if you got any brains, Mr. Berube...!?!

Sorry Flyers, tonight you get to be on the little laptop screen. There's other Fly-ing to handle.

Looks like Read is a no-go. Ditto Raffl. VandeVelde and Rosehill would play.

Also, Sam C. added that Downie will play on first line and Rinaldo will be on the third line.

So...

Downie-Giroux-Voracek
Hartnell-Schenn-Simmonds
Rinaldo-Couturier-Lecavelier
Hall-Vandevelde-Rosehill

Berube is very very stupid. I have zero faith in him whatsoever.

Well, I'm going to missing probably the first 2 periods of this game and miss possibly (maybe) the first half of the Eagles game. Going out to see a movie with someone, and still need to give the person a present.

I am going to leave the Eagles game on in one room and Flyers in another.

What's Berube's fascination with Rinaldo? The guy has no offensive talent. Where's McGinn?

She is to me.

I'd just keep switching between the two. But like I said, I might be back around 9:30-9:40, so I can still catch whatever is left.

So that explains the weird email the Flyers sent me about re-airing.

I'm one of those strange people who don't like football so I guess it's all good.
