1974-1984:
  • September 28, 1974 -- In the second meeting between teams from rival leagues the NHL and WHA, the Flyers defeated the New England Whalers 4-2 in an exhibition match played at Quebec. Dave Schultz scored twice and both goals were assisted by Don Saleski and Orest Kindrachuk. In the prior game, the St. Louis Blues and Houston Aeros met.
  • November 27, 1979 -- The Flyers won at home 6-2 in the first NHL meeting between the teams. Mike Busniuk scored 41 seconds into the game and the Flyers led the rest of the way. Philly led 3-2 after two periods then Brian Propp (1-1-2) and Reggie Leach (2-0-2) scored in the opening two minutes of the third period. Bill Barber, Bobby Clarke and Ken Linseman each had two assists. Each team had two minors aside.
  • December 23, 1979 -- Brian Propp scored twice and the Flyers outshot Hartford 40-16 in a 4-2 home win which extended the team's NHL record unbeaten streak to 30 games. Propp, Reggie Leach and Bill Barber each had two points. The Flyers led 2-1 after two periods with a 29-8 shots advantage.
  • December 26, 1979 --The Flyers extended their NHL record unbeaten streak to 31 games with a 4-4 draw in Springfield, Massachusetts (the Hartford Civic Center was being renovated). Capacity in Springfield was listed at 7,627 but estimates put the crowd well over 8,500 in part due to the popularity of the Flyers. Eyewitnesses claimed that spectators sat in aisles for the entire game. The game was filled with excitement and strong play. Brian Propp led the Flyers' offense with two goals. The Flyers led 4-2 in the third period but the Whalers completed a rally when Brian Hill, who was promoted to the NHL on Christmas Day, scored the only goal of his NHL career. Mark Howe (Hartford) scored twice in his return after he missed the prior three games with back woes.
  • March 21, 1980 -- Rick MacLeish scored on a breakaway with exactly four minutes to play and the teams played to a 5-5 tie in their first meeting in Hartford. Mike Rogers gave the Whalers a 5-4 lead with 5:50 remaining. Brian Propp had two goals and Ken Linseman (1-2-3) and Paul Holmgren (0-3-3) each had three points as did Hartford's Mark Howe and Blaine Stoughton. MacLeish and Propp both reached the 30-goal level.
  • October 26, 1980 -- The line of Bill Barber (1-3-4), Bobby Clarke (0-3-3) and Reggie Leach (1-2-3) had 10 points and third-string goalie Rick St. Croix, in his first start of the season, made 24 stops in the Flyers' 6-1 home win. Tim Kerr scored his first career NHL goal at the 2:37 mark.
  • November 8, 1980 -- Phil Myre made 33 saves and Reggie Leach snapped a 4-4 third period tie in Philly's 5-4 win at Hartford. Rick MacLeish and Leach both had a goal and an assist. Mark Howe had three assists for Hartford. Philly led 2-0 at the 4:40 mark and held a 4-2 advantage entering the third period but the Whalers evened the game by the 3:19 mark.
  • November 21, 1980 -- Jack McIlhargey and Norm Barnes were traded by Philadelphia in exchange for Hartford's 2nd round choice (later traded to Toronto - Toronto selected Peter Ihnacak) in the 1982 Entry Draft.
  • February 8, 1981 -- Paul Holmgren, who termed the team's effort "embassassing," scored with just under five minutes to play in a 6-6 tie at Philly. After a scoreless first period, the teams combined for seven goals and Hartford took a 4-3 lead despite being outshot 31-17 after two periods. Three players scored twice in the second period: Bill Barber (2-0-2) of the Flyers and Hartford's Warren Miller (3-0-3), who later completed a hat trick, and Dave Debol (2-0-2). Reggie Leach (3-0-3) completed a hat trick with two consecutive third period goals to give Philly a 5-4 lead. The Flyers held a 48-30 shots advantage. John Garrett made 42 saves. Phil Myre made 24 stops in his final game with the Flyers; he also surrendered 5+ goals in five of his last six games. After the game, head coach Pat Quinn was disenchanted with his team's play and said "We've been giving up a lot of gift goals. The defense seemed mesmerized like they are in a vacuum." Holmgren said "It's embarrassing the way we were playing... This building is not worth a goal anymore. That is from the previous era. It doesn't seem to have the same aura as before."
  • March 29, 1981 -- Reid Bailey (1-2-3), Paul Holmgren (2-0-2, 100th NHL goal) and Rick St. Croix (29 saves) led the Flyers to a 4-1 win in Hartford. Bailey scored the only goal in his 56-game (including playoffs) NHL career. Bobby Clarke picked up his 700th assist on a goal by Tim Kerr who missed the prior three games with an elbow injury. Don Nachbaur gave Hartford a 1-0 lead 41 seconds into the game. Mike Busniuk fought Pat Boutette and picked up 11 of the Flyers' 19 PIMs.
  • July 21, 1981 -- The Flyers acquired Fred Arthur, Ray Allison, a 1st round pick (Ron Sutter) and a 3rd round pick (Miroslav Dvorak) in exchange for Rick MacLeish, Blake Wesley, Don Gillen, a 1982 1st rounder (Paul Lawless), a 1982 2nd rounder (Mark Paterson) and a 1982 3rd rounder (Kevin Dineen). Flyers' GM Keith Allen said "This sort of reminds me of the deals we made several years back for MacLeish and Reggie Leach. In those deals we picked up a couple of first-rounders who eventually came into their own and played a big part in our success."
  • November 12, 1981 -- Paul Holmgren (2-0-2) made his season-debut and scored consecutive PPGs in the second period in Philly's 5-3 home win. Holmgren had shoulder surgery after an injury in a USA-Canada exhibition match for the Canada Cup in August and he missed the Flyers' first 14 regular season games. Hartford's Doug Sulliman scored 0:11 into the second period but Holmgren's pair of goals made it 3-1. The Flyers outshot the Whalers 37-17. Fred Arthur and Garry Howatt fought ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1AX6qzzUJQ ).
  • March 20, 1982 -- The day after Pat Quinn's dismissal as head coach and Bob McCammon's ascension to the position, the Flyers responded with a 5-2 win in Hartford. Bill Barber's SHG, his 40th goal of the season, with 5:47 to play gave the Flyers the lead 3-2 and then Ray Allison and Kenny Linseman added two late third period goals 36 seconds apart. Brad Marsh assisted on the Flyers' third and fourth goals. The Whalers led 2-0 after one period as Mark Howe assisted on two PPGs but the Flyers rallied with second period goals by All Hill (1-2-3) and Ron Flockhart. Pelle Lindbergh made 38 saves and went 30-for-30 over the last two periods. It was Lindbergh's first NHL win in his sixth appearance after a start of 0-3-2. The game also featured a bench-clearing brawl, at the end of the first period, which saw three players ejected including Brian Propp and Frank Bathe of the Flyers.
  • March 21, 1982 -- Bill Barber, who returned to being a forward after a brief stint on the blueline, scored the go-ahead goal with 2:25 to play then added an ENG in the Flyers' 5-3 home victory. Philly outshot the Whalers 51-44. Pelle Lindbergh made 41 saves in picking up his second NHL career win and on consecutive dates. Greg Millen made 46 saves in defeat. The Flyers started 2-0-0 with new head coach Bob McCammon and finished 4-2-2 under him. Reggie Leach, who was scratched in McCammon's first two games, was late for a practice two days later and then placed on waivers after McCammon decided to go with younger players. "My decision is for the betterment of the hockey team," said McCammon.
  • August 20, 1982 -- Hartford traded Mark Howe and a 3rd round choice (Derrick Smith) in the 1983 Entry Draft for Ken Linseman, Greg Adams and the Flyers 1st (David Jensen) and 3rd (Leif Karlsson) round picks in the 1983 Draft. The Whalers then sent Linseman and Dan Nachbaur to Edmonton for Risto Siltanen and the rights to Brent Loney. A stumbling block prior to the deal was Howe's no-trade contract and also the lack of available talent on the Flyers' blueline, something Hartford desired in return which was fulfilled with the addition of Edmonton as the third team.
  • December 11, 1982 -- The Whalers scored four times in a span of 6:10 late in the game and won for the first time in this series (0-8-3), 7-4 in Hartford. Blaine Stoughton (3-1-4), who scored in each period and had the GWG with 4:07 to play, Bob Sullivan (1-2-3) and Ron Francis (0-4-4) led the offsense. The line of Ray Allison (1-2-3), Darryl Sittler (1-1-2), who gave Philly a 4-3 lead with 7:50 left to play, and Ilkka Sinisalo (1-2-3) had 8 points. Mark Howe gave Philly a 3-1 lead in the second period in his first game against his former team. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mk8Py0E_KIk
  • January 8, 1983 -- Bill Barber returned to the lineup after missing the prior 14 games due to a torn MCL and had five (2-3-5) points in Philly's 8-4 home win. The line of Barber (2-3-5), Darryl Sittler (3-1-4) and Ilkka Sinisalo (2-3-5) set a team-record (since broken) with 14 points. Sittler recorded his 20th NHL hat trick and had three points in the second period when Philly out-scored the Whalers 3-0. Barber also played in an exhibition match January 6 against a touring Soviet all-star team.
  • January 9, 1983 -- Paul Holmgren (1-3-4) and Brian Propp (2-1-3), who had a team-record (since broken) 13 shots on goal, led the Flyers to an 8-4 home win. The Flyers totalled 53 shots and Mike Veisor made 45 saves for the Whalers. Doug Sulliman (2-1-3) scored twice for Hartford in less than four minutes to even the game 2-2. Mark Howe and Bill Barber netted SHGs within 32 seconds to give Philly a 4-2 lead. The Flyers out-scored Hartford 4-3 in the second period to take a 5-3 lead into the final period. Rick St. Croix made 24 saves in the victory.
  • October 14, 1983 -- The Flyers got a third round draft pick, used to select John Stevens, as compensation for the unexpected retirement of defenseman Fred Arthur (acquired in July 1981, demoted then retired in October 1982) who refused to be sent to the minor leagues on a conditioning assignment rather to concentrate on a preferred medical career. At the time, Arthur said "I'm not going. It's not just being sent down, it's something I've been thinking about for a while. It's not going in the direction I hoped." Arthur eventually worked at the Victoria Hospital emergency room in London, Ontario.
  • November 6, 1983 -- Dave Poulin (1-1-2) snapped a 2-2 tie in the third period in a 4-2 home win. Tim Kerr (1-2-3) had three points, Brian Propp (1-1-2) tied the game and then assisted on the winning goal and Bob Froese made 21 saves. Greg Millen made 35 saves in a loss.
  • December 4, 1983 -- Bob Crawford (2-1-3) was named the game's top star in the Whalers' first win in Philly, 6-5. The Flyers owned records of 7-0-1 at home and 11-1-3 in this series entering the contest. Ray Neufeld (1-1-2) scored the go-ahead goal 27 seconds after Brian Propp (2-0-2) evened the score 5-5. The Whalers were also led by Pierre Turgeon (1-2-3) and Ed Staniowski (32 saves). Bob Froese gave up six goals on 19 shots. Ray Allison (0-3-3) and ilkka Sinisalo (2-0-2) led the Flyers. Head coach Bob McCammon said "We stunk the place out."
  • February 25, 1984 -- The Whalers' PP scored on their first four chances, including three in the first period, and went 4-for-6 in a 9-7 home win. Hartford led 3-0 11:26 into the game but the Flyers tied the game 4-4 on goals by Dave Brown (first NHL goal) and Glen Cochrane 61 seconds apart; both later had fighting majors. The Whalers took a 5-4 lead with 19 seconds left in the first period. Hartford outshot Philly 24-17 in the first period but the Flyers held a 41-37 edge in the game. Hartford led 8-6 after two periods. Tim Kerr's 40th goal brought the Flyers to within 8-7 in the final minute of regulation. Five times a goal was scored less than 30 seconds from a previous goal, including three times in the first period. Risto Siltanen (2-1-3), Tony Currie (2-1-3) and Mark Johnson (0-3-3) paced Hartford. Mark Howe (2-1-3), Len Hachborn (0-3-3), Ron Sutter (0-3-3) and Kerr (1-2-3) had three-point efforts for Philly. Pelle Lindbergh, recalled the prior day from a 10-day demotion in the AHL where he was 4-0, surrendered eight goals (the ninth was an ENG). Despite surrendering seven goals, Greg Millen defeated the Flyers for the first time after an 0-11-1 start (he finished 3-18-2 in the regular season). The game included four fights: Daryl Stanley gave Randy Pierce, recalled the prior day, a nine-stitch gash over his left eye; Ray Allison-Doug Sulliman; Dave Brown-Torrie Robertson and Glen Cochrane-Sylvain Turgeon with Hartford's Ed Hospodar tossed as the third-man.
  • November 15, 1984 -- Bobby Clarke Night ceremonies were highlighted by a six-minute, seventeen-second standing ovation for the legendary player who told the fans "Everyday was Christmas for me. I’d love to do it all over again.” After the emotional display, the Flyers skated to a 3-0 first period lead and won 6-1. Derrick Smith converted a beautiful behind-the-back pass from Murray Craven to open the scoring. Pelle Lindbergh made 26 saves. Tim Kerr (2-1-3) and Craven (1-2-3) each had three points. Among the comments spoken about Clarke was one by Bruins' GM Harry Sinden who said "Bobby Clarke is the greatest competitor in the history of the game - ever! He was no angel but then again he went into corners where angels feared to tread." Intro to the broadcast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9FdZa2z0uU

  • November 24, 1984 -- Derrick Smith's goal, deflected into the net by the Whalers' Risto Siltanen, followed a tally by Mark Howe in the third period and the Flyers rallied for a 4-4 OT tie at Hartford. Rick Tocchet scored twice for the Flyers but had an apparent OT winner disallowed. Mark Johnson (2-1-3) gave the Whalers a 4-2 lead in the third period. Ray Neufeld also had three points.

  • March 7, 1987 -- Sylvain Turgeon scored consecutive goals to give the Whalers a 3-1 lead in an eventual 5-3 win in Hartford. Turgeon had eight shots. Paul Lawless of Hartford opened the scoring and later added an assist. Lindsay Carson of Philly had two high-sticking majors and was ejected in the second period. Lawless and Carson were dealt for each other less than a year later.
  • October 31, 1987 -- The Whalers overcame a 3-1 deficit and scored six straight goals en route to a 7-4 win at Hartford. The Whalers had seven scorers including Dave Tippett's penalty shot which made it 5-3. Steve Weeks made 24 saves. Each team was whistled for 16 penalties, 35 PIMs to the Flyers and 32 to Hartford.
  • December 3, 1987 -- Coming off a four-day mini-retreat in Lake Placid, the Flyers responded with a 3-0 first period en route to a 5-2 home win. Peter Zezel (2-0-2), Ilkka Sinisalo (1-2-3) and Murray Craven (0-3-3) led the offense and Ron Hextall made 20 saves. In a span of 58 seconds midway in the opening period, Dave Poulin and Peter Zezel sandwiched goals around a Rick Tocchet-Torrie Robertson fight. Pelle Eklund made it 3-0, the Flyers third goal in a span of 5:28. The Flyers entered the game with two straight wins and would go onto a 12-0-2 unbeaten run but owned a weak record of 8-18-3 at that point in the season.
  • January 22, 1988 -- Lindsay Carson, who asked to be traded because of a diminishing role, was dealt to the Whalers for Paul Lawless. Carson said, "I think they were selling me short. I never hurt the Flyers in any way. In return, I don't think I got the respect and recognition I deserved. But I'm not bitter about it.... It makes you wonder." He played 27 games for the Whalers that season then part of the following season in the AHL before retiring. Said Lawless "I'm tickled to death to be going to Philadelphia." The Flyers dealt the disappointing Lawless to Vancouver about six weeks later as part of a trade acquiring Willie Huber.
  • February 15, 1988 -- Dave Brown's rebound goal off a Derrick Smith shot 3:35 into OT gave the Flyers a 5-4 victory in a game aired on ESPN. Brown fed Smith from behind the net and then banged home the loose puck. Smith and Ron Sutter led the Flyers with two points apiece and both were a game-high +3. Brian Propp had a game-high nine shots. The feisty affair saw 36 penalties, 100 PIMs, five PPGs and 19 PP chances (Hartford was 3-8, Philly was 2-11). Paul Lawless, acquired the prior month, was scratched for the fifth time in ten games and a main reason was he failed to meet coach Mike Keenan's demand that all players have a body fat% of 13 or less (his was 14). Keenan said the game "had playoff intensity." Injured player Tim Kerr was on the bench helping assistant coaches. Kjell Samuelsson suffered a leg injury and missed the next four games. In the second period, Rick Tocchet pummeled Ulf Samuelsson ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riduJ-z-VyA ) who later said "I ate one (punch) on the way down."
  • October 22, 1988 -- Carey Wilson had three points (2-1-3) and the key goal which made it 6-5 with 0:49 left in the second period of Hartford's 8-6 home win. Kevin Dineen (1-2-3) also had three points. Mike Liut collected a rare win against the Flyers, he entered the game 2-12-4. Both teams scored four goals in the second period.

  • March 12, 1989 -- Mark Laforest made 37 saves and Rick Tocchet's second goal of the game with 3:18 left in regulation gave the Flyers a 3-3 tie in Hartford.

  • November 25, 1989 -- The Whalers scored three PPGs and Scott Young (1-2-3) and Ron Francis (1-2-3) each had three points in a 5-2 home win. Mike Liut picked up the win by making 18 saves. There were 55 PIMs in the third period including various fights: Jeff Chychrun vs. Ed Kastelic ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3oMwSQnV7g ), Scott Mellanby head-butting Randy Ladouceur ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LrlQ1zne5s ), Craig Berube-Kastelic in which Tony Horacek was tossed as third man ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YN13P4LYS88 ) and Rick Tocchet-Ladouceur to which the Civic Center organist played "Tea for Two," a song from the 1920s musical "No, No Nanette."
  • December 14, 1989 -- Mike Liut made 27 saves and Hartford rallied for a 3-2 win in Philly. After the game, Flyers' head coach Paul Holmgren removed Dave Poulin's captaincy and the "A" from Mark Howe's jersey and replaced them with Ron Sutter and Terry Carkner. Years later, Holmgren admitted he overreacted. The Flyers outshot Hartford 23-10 through two periods but were tied 1-1. Jiri Latal gave Philly a 2-1 lead in the opening minute of the third period. The unlikely pair of Tom Martin (the last of 12 NHL goals) and Mike Tomlak (2nd of 15 career goals) scored for Hartford in the third period. Craig Berube fought Grant Jennings ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUbaa21cOjo ) in the opening minute and later Bob Bodak ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgHQ-rS3sNs) and Tony Horacek fought Ed Kastelic ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wjdwv_y8HdE ). Rick Tocchet said after the game "This has to be the most disappointing loss of the season. We had a chance to take over first place, and we came up with an effort like this." The line of Tocchet, Ron Sutter and Murray Craven had 13 of the team's 29 shots and were each a +2. Among the Flyers injured and not playing were Tim Kerr, Ron Hextall, Brian Propp and Kjell Samuelsson.

The Flyers were absent their top three scorers: Rick Tocchet, Pelle Eklund and Murray Craven. The game started at 11:00 a.m. due to the annual Flyers' Wives Carnival (charity event) later that night.
  • November 13, 1991 -- Kevin Dineen was traded by Hartford for Murray Craven and Philly's 4th round choice (Kevin Smyth) in 1992 Entry Draft. At the time of the trade, Dineen placed second (to Ron Francis) in games played in the Whalers' franchise history. Craven was in a contract dispute with Flyers' GM Russ Farwell and earlier in the week suffered a neck injury in a Flyers' exhibition match against Team USA. Craven was scratched in two prior games and when his focus was questioned by head coach Paul Holmgren, Craven said "I didn't think he was a psychologist." He said of Farwell "A new General Manager is in and basically moved everybody out from years gone by." Both players scored in their first games with their new teams. Dineen, who suffered from Crohn's Disease, scored an ENG with one second left in the Flyers 3-1 win over Edmonton the following night.
  • November 27, 1991 -- Pat Verbeek and Andrew Cassals scored twice in the Whalers' 7-3 win in the Spectrum. Ron Hextall suffered a shoulder injury and was out of the lineup until December 21, 1991. Flyers' fans chanted "Paul (Holmgren) must go, Paul must go." Holmgren was fired December 4.
  • April 11, 1992 -- Yvon Corriveau scored twice and Frank Pietrangelo made 20 saves in Hartford's 4-2 home win. The game was the first for the Flyers since the conclusion of a 10-day NHL strike. Teams voted in the new agreement 17-7 while players supported the new measure 409-61.

  • June 15, 1992 -- Paul Holmgren was named head coach of the Hartford Whalers and remained with the organization as a coach/GM until November 6, 1995.
  • January 24, 1993 -- Ric Nattress' soft shot from the point, after a failed clear by Zarley Zalapski, gave Philly a 5-4 OT win over Paul Holmgren's Whalers in the Spectrum. Afterwards, Holmgren was very critical of Zalapski's play by saying "He keeps telling me he is an All-Star..." Nattress said the shot was like playing pool. The Flyers 6-game losing skid in this series was snapped. Hartford led 5-3 in the third period until Rod Brind'Amour (2-0-2) and Greg Hawgood scored consecutive PPGs with assists on both coming from Garry Galley (0-3-3) and Mark Recchi (0-2-2). Hawgood's 55-footer tied the game with 2:10 remaining in regulation after goalie Frank Pietrangelo was whistled for a minor. Terry Yake (2-1-3) led Hartford. Both teams had poor records, the Flyers 17-22-7 and the Whalers were 13-31-4. Midway in the second period, an announcement that former Flyer Tim Kerr had retired from the Whalers/NHL was greeted by a 90-second standing ovation as the on-ice officials purposely delayed the puck drop. Holmgren commented on the reaction to Kerr, who was not in attendance, by saying "Because of the tragedies and all he's been through, I thought it was wonderful. He's a class guy." Kerr, when he learned of the reaction, told the Hartford Courant "We were in Adirondack Sunday. I didn't know until I got home. One of the players' wives called my wife Midge. Wow, that was great. Almost all my memorable moments in hockey were in that building."
  • February 24, 1993 -- Eric Lindros and Kevin Dineen scored twice in Philly's 5-3 road win. Ex-Flyer Murray Craven gave Hartford a 2-1 lead with his 200th goal but Josef Beranek and Lindros responded quickly to give Philly a 3-2 lead. Philly outshot Hartford 41-27. The Flyers were 0-7-1 in their prior eight visits to Hartford. Whalers' head coach Paul Holmgren said of his team's performance "It's the worst effort we've had in a long, long time and to be honest with you, I'm embarrassed by it." A brawl, which involved both goalies, happened with 2:01 to play (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqdrP5JLudo ). That fight was a result of an earlier incident in which the Whalers' Nick Kypreos left his skates and elbowed Garry Galley to the head ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCQZ0S5VAGA ) which ended with Dimitri Yushkevich and Jim McKenzie fighting. Galley missed the following game, his only DNP in the 84-game schedule.
  • April 16, 1993 -- In a make-up game, Dimitri Yushkevich scored 1:15 into OT and the Flyers closed the 1992-93 campaign with an eighth straight win, 5-4 in Hartford. The game was originally scheduled for March 14 but was postponed due to a blizzard of up to 21 inches of snow (the prior day, the Whalers played at home to a crowd of 1,362). The Flyers outshot Hartford 4-0 in the OT. Mark Recchi, who ended the season with a club-record 123 points, joined Bobby Clarke as the only Flyers to hit the 70 assist mark.

The game included 35 penalties (21 to Hartford), 129 PIMs and six fights including three fight by Dave Brown who made quick work of Bryan Marchment. Brown also fought Jim McKenzie and Marc Potvin. Ryan McGill fought Potvin twice. Beranek fought Pat Verbeek. Said Flyers' head coach Terry Simpson "Tempers were a little frayed." Jason Bowen was elbowed and suffered a bloodied eye which kept him out of the next eight games. Earlier in the week, Hartford's GM/Coach Paul Holmgren relinquished his coaching duties to concentrate on his GM duties and was replaced by Pierre Maguire. Said Holmgren "I was frustrated and didn't look forward to going to the rink for practice. I enjoyed the office and dealing with other GMs." Hartford goalie Mario Gosselin (9 saves, 14 shots) suffered a bruised knee and was replaced by Mike Lenarduzzi (11 saves, 12 shots).
  • March 19, 1994 -- Jocelyn Lemieux scored with 47 seconds left and Brian Propp added an ENG in Hartford's 5-3 road win. Both goals were the second of the game for each player.

The shutout was his second straight, the first time a Flyer accomplished that feat since Bernie Parent in 1973. "The team defense has been absolutely smothering. They play so well in front of me. They are making my job pretty easy right now. As a team we take pride in our goals-against average and our wins and losses. I've never been a big guy on shutouts," said Hextall. John LeClair (2-1-3, eight shots) and Eric Lindros (1-1-2) combined for five of the seven individual points given in the game.

He's always stabbing you with his stick. He wants to be a tough guy. I don't take that stuff from defensemen. I don't take it from the tough guys. I'm certainly not going to take it from a goalie. I'm going to knock him on his can." Dale Hawerchuk reaggravated a groin injury and missed all but one game the rest of the regular season. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ESkhLnuDP4

Roberts, whose 300th NHL goal gave Carolina 3-2 lead earlier in the third period, was issued a 10-minute misconduct for arguing the call as time expired. Said Hurricanes' head coach Paul Maurice about referee Rocky Trottier "Tommy had the right to go after the puck in the crease. He just makes them up as he goes. You can use any explanation that you want tonight because there can't be a logical one. Maybe aliens came down and took over his helmet, I'm not sure. Unbelievable." Lindros was whistled for cross-checking after the winning goal was scored but the Flyers killed the minor penalty.

If you want to talk about something negative talk about our power play.'' Flyers' coach Ken Hitchcock responded to a question about the PP "I'm not even going to comment on the power play. You guys know it's struggling now. Why beat it up any more? There is a lack of confidence on the back end and it's been there for a little while.

We certainly didn't want to give up Justin, but we didn't have any choice." Williams said "I was definitely surprised. I didn't expect anything, but I've got nothing but good things to say about my time in Philly." Carolina's GM Jim Rutherford said "He's (Markov) certainly a player that I would've preferred not to trade. But in order to start to make changes, it's not always the players that you want to trade that you're able to trade." The Flyers made the trade due to injuries on the blue-line.

  • February 10, 2011 -- Brian Boucher made 31 saves and Jeff Carter and Danny Briere scored third period PPGs in the Flyers' 2-1 home win. Carter snapped a scoreless tie 18 seconds into the third period then Briere made it 2-0 about eleven minutes later. Tuomo Ruutu got Carolina on the board 11:27 into the third period, 40 seconds after Briere's goal. The Flyers' PP was 2-for-6 and the PK was a perfect 6-for-6. The Hurricanes held a 32-25 shots advantage including 27-18 over the last two periods. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rjGNaWXQq0
  • February 18, 2011 -- Erik Cole scored with 3:03 to play and Cam Ward made 21 saves in Carolina's 3-2 home win. The Hurricanes led 2-0 6:37 into the game. Entering the game, the Flyers won the last nine times the teams met, held a 15-0-3 record in the prior 18 games and had lost in regulation just three times in the last 38 games. Braydon Coburn tied it at 2-2 with 5:11 to play, his first goal since November 18, 2010. Blair Betts' SHG cut the Hurricanes lead in half, 2-1, and ended a 44-game scoring drought. The PK went 7-for-7 and ended the night 44-for-48 (91.7 pct.) in their last 13 games. The Flyers entered the game with a 9-0 record when scoring a SHG. The Flyers had 27 blocks to Carolina's 11 but one injured Betts during a successful 3-on-5 two-minute kill. Sergei Bobrovsky made 26 saves. Mike Richards had a 169-game playing streak snapped (flu). Before to the game, the Hurricanes retired #17 in honor of Rod Brind'Amour and the Flyers each wore number 17 prior to the game as a tribute. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dDr9RXH66c
  • October 29, 2011 -- Ilya Bryzgalov made 24 saves and the line of Claude Giroux (1-3-4, +4), Scott Hartnell (1-2-3) and Jaromir Jagr (2-0-2) helped the Flyers to a 5-1 home win. The Flyers out-scored the Hurricanes 4-0 in the third period and got key goals from Jagr, 39 seconds in, and Max Talbot, whose SHG gave Philly a 3-1 lead. Carolina's lone goal came as a result of Hartnell who slid into Bryzgalov and knocked the goalie out of position. The Flyers lost their prior game 9-8 vs. Winnipeg which led to Bryzgalov questioning his recent play. Said Jagr "It was big for Bryz, he needed that game after the last game and he was solid today." Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXzoH36Tv48
  • November 14, 2011 -- Claude Giroux (2-1-3) scored twice in the Flyers' 5-3 win at Carolina. Chris Pronger (0-3-3), Matt Read (1-1-2), Jake Voracek (0-2-2) and Jaromir Jagr (0-2-2) all had multi-point games. Sergei Bobrovsky made 18 saves. Patrick Dwyer (2-0-2) scored two SHGs for Carolina, the first came with under 0.9 left in the first period. Giroux and Wayne Simmonds scored in the opening seven minutes of the second period to give Philly a 4-1 lead. At that point, Cam Ward was lifted (13 saves, 17 shots) for Brian Boucher (10 saves, 11 shots). Dwyer's second SHG, this time on a penalty shot, cut the score to 4-3 early in the third period. It was the second consecutive Flyers' game in which a SHG was scored on a penalty shot (the prior night, Matt Read scored at Florida). The Flyers increased the lead to 5-3 when Read scored on a nice feed from Voracek with under four minutes to play before slamming into the boards. Also that evening, former Flyers and Whalers' player Mark Howe was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoM10R0_jVg
  • November 21, 2011 -- Alexei Ponikarovsky (2-1-3), Chad LaRose (1-2-3) and Cam Ward (30 saves) led Carolina to a 4-2 win in Philadelphia. The Flyers had won 11 of the prior 12 in this series. Jaromir Jagr, Chris Pronger and Braydon Coburn were all absent from the Flyers' lineup and defensemen Kevin Marshall and Marc-Andre Bourdon made their NHL debuts. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0q7FBxc3pwU
  • January 10, 2012 -- Sean Couturier scored the lone goal in the third period and Sergei Bobrovsky made 35 saves in the Flyers' 2-1 win at Carolina. Brayden Schenn gave Philly a 1-0 lead in the second period. Jerome Samson, called up that day, scored his first NHL goal on the PP. Cam Ward made 35 saves. Philly held a 37-37 shots advantage. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H9iwyQ3F8s
  • February 2, 2013 -- Ilya Bryzgalov made 39 saves, five different Flyers scored, the PP was 3-for-3 and the PK was 5-for-6 in a 5-3 home win. Carolina had five consecutive PPs (before offsetting penalties near the end the game). The Hurricanes attempted 91 shots to 41 for the Flyers; that included a 42-24 shots advantage and the Flyers blocking an unofficial team-record 32 shots to 7 for Carolina. Dan Ellis (8 saves, 12 shots) was replaced by Cam Ward (11 saves, 12 shots) after Mike Knuble made it 4-2 ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_A2E3JrAzvE ) with his first goal since returning to the Flyers. The Flyers had a 2-1 lead with all three goals by defensemen including Kurtis Foster and Braydon Coburn. The Flyers entered the game with a three-game losing skid and with injuries to various key personnel.
  • February 9, 2013 -- Danny Briere, benched earlier in the game, scored 1:47 into OT and gave Philly a 4-3 home win. Ilya Bryzgalov made 30 saves and Brayden Schenn (1-2-3, +3) had three points. Jakub Voracek gave Philly a 3-2 lead 15 seconds after Carolina's Jeff Skinner scored in the second period. Jiri Tlusty made it 1-0 Carolina 17 seconds into game. Tim Wallace was ejected in the opening period for boarding and the partial 5-minute PP for the Flyers (Braydon Coburn picked up a minor penalty) included a 5-on-3 but the Flyers failed to score. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TLrhjxoo2E and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1NunFpcp7g
  • April 20, 2013 -- Line mates Wayne Simmonds (2-2-4, +4), who had his first career hat trick and a career high in points, and Matt Read (1-2-3, +4), led the Flyers to a 5-3 road win. Simmonds' natural hat trick gave Philly a 4-2 lead. The Flyers held a 19-8 shots advantage through one period and 30-16 through two periods (38-29 overall). Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZ7uVZjVDL0
  • October 7, 2013 -- Radek Dvorak's second period goal snapped a 1-1 tie in Carolina's 2-1 home win. The Hurricanes held a 34-18 shots advantage, Steve Mason made 32 saves.
  • November 5, 2013 -- Manny Malhotra's goal gave Carolina a 2-1 OT home win. Jordan Staal tied the game with 53 seconds left in regulation. Justin Peters made 28 saves. Scott Hartnell's PPG broke a scoreless tie with 3:58 to play.
  • January 22, 2014 -- In a game canceled the prior day due to inclement weather in the region, the Flyers dropped a 3-2 home decision in a listless performance. Jiri Tlusty snapped a 2-2 tie with 6:10 remaining. Anton Khudobin made 22 saves. The Flyers were outshot 8-3 in the first period and fell behind 2-0 when Nathan Gerbe scored a highlight reel goal. Claude Giroux scored with 35 seconds left in the second period and Scott Hartnell tied it early in the third period. After the game, Giroux said "It's kind of embarrassing to be playing like this at home." The game was rescheduled to start at 6:00 p.m.
  • April 13, 2014 -- Eric Staal (2-0-2), who scored twice in regulation, had the lone shootout goal (first round) in Carolina's 6-5 SO win at Philly. Jeff Skinner (2-0-2) also scored twice for Carolina. The pair gave the Hurricanes a 2-0 lead. Staal made it 4-1 17 seconds into the second period. The Flyers tied the game 4-4 after three consecutive goals including a pair 10 seconds apart. Scott Hartnell (major, game misconduct $5,000 fine) was ejected for spearing 13:09 into the third period which oddly turned into a Flyers' PP when two Carolina players took minors; however, Skinner's PPG later during the major gave the Canes a 5-4 edge. Wayne Simmonds (2-0-2) scored twice and tied the game 5-5 with 9.5 ticks left in regulation. Philly held a 44-38 shots advantage. Anton Khudobin made 39 saves for the Hurricanes. Cal Heeter, who made his NHL debut in a mostly meaningless game for the Flyers, had 33 stops but gave up a goal on the first shot he faced.

THIS DATE IN FLYERS' HISTORY: April 13, 1985

In one of the greatest individual performances in NHL post-season history, Tim Kerr scored four consecutive goals and led the Flyers to a series sweep of the NYR, 6-5. Kerr became the first NHL player to score four goals in one PO period and he 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). 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.

Don't worry about any inaccuracies or lines. They'll be changed. This is open for comments.

----------------edit, part of the updates:

Quote:
The Philadelphia Flyers have recalled C Jason Akeson and G Cal Heeter from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Both players will be available for tomorrow’s 3 p.m. season finale against the Carolina Hurricanes at the Wells Fargo Center (CSN-HD, 97.5 FM).

Akeson, 23 (6/3/1990), receives his second career call-up to the Flyers and first this season. It’ll be the second consecutive year that he joins the Flyers for the last game of the year – he was recalled on April 22, 2013 and made his NHL debut in last season’s finale against Ottawa, scoring his first NHL goal on his first NHL shot.

In 70 games for the Phantoms this year, he’s recorded 24 goals and 40 assists for 64 points. The goals and points are a career high, and he’s one assist away from tying that career high. This season marks the third consecutive year that Akeson has led the Phantoms in scoring.

Can they get Heeter to Philly in time for the game? May as well start him if so.

I think Kimmo and Grossmann will sit again.

Akeson might replace whichever forward needs the rest most.

He will probably want to play with his buddy and try for 30 goals.

Is it going to become a tradition for the Flyers to call up Akeson for just the last game of the season every year?

As much as I don't want to see anyone get injured, from an entertainment (and selfish) perspective, I hope everyone who's healthy plays. I want to see Giroux get 30 goals.

Lol I was just thinking this.

Hopefully Akeson does well, I'd like to see him as a call up more often. Especially with the AHLers getting 2nd line minutes apparently.

It'd be cool to see them try to get Giroux 30 since the points are meaningless, although it wouldn't be a bad idea to let him rest either.

Doubt it happens, but I'd like to see Heeter play.

Giroux getting to 30 would also give a good chance at being 2nd in NHL scoring... 2 points off Getzlaf, both have 1 game left.

Yeah, I think Giroux plays. They're not going to sit everyone with it being a home game. If this game were on the road, I think it would be different.

Even if we lose this should be much better than the last home game against Carolina. That awful 3-2 loss after the Polar Vortex postponement. Actually, all our games against them this season have been awful.

If Roo does what he did yesterday (3pts 1g, 2a) he'll get 30g on the season, and he'll hop over Getzlaf for 2nd in points

Edit: I meant a 3pt performance he's sitting on 28g, but I'll take a 3, 4, 5, or heck a 6pt game from him!!!!!

Read historically has played very well against the Canes, hopefully this gets him going. He's been in a funk to say the least.

Happy Heeter and Akeson are being rewarded though I feel Heeter is getting a start to see what he's got going forward (Emery is brutal). Unfortunately I don't think the same can be said for Akeson (McGinn has been brutal ).
