  • 2004 -- February 21 -- Simon Gagne beat Pasi Nurminen on a penalty shot with 1:01 left in the third period to snap a tie and the Flyers won 5-4 in Philadelphia. With the game even 4-4, Gagne was awarded a penalty shot after Andy Sutton shot a loose stick on the ice toward him. Alexei Zhamnov, playing his first game with the Flyers, waited for the officials to review the play thinking he could take the shot; however, Gagne was required to take it because the loose stick came at him. The Flyers went 4-for-5 on the PP. Ronald Petrovicky was given a five-minute major midway through the first period for charging Mattias Timander into the boards and the Flyers scored three times in the advantage.

The Flyers were without six regulars including Keith Primeau, Jeremy Roenick and Eric Desjardins. Ilya Kovalchuk, Serge Aubin and Marc Savard recorded eight points for the Thrashers.

It's unfortunate it cost us the game." Atlanta head coach Bob Hartley told Flyers' head coach Ken Hitchcock "Keep this one wrapped in Christmas paper. Wrap it in Christmas paper!" to which Hitchcock replied "I'll send you a card, I'll send you a kiss (Hershey, AHL reference)."

I'll be at work for most of this one, but maybe I'll still get to have it on.

Go team.

Niitty got a shutout tonight against the Canadiens so let's win this game in honor of that. =P

In all seriousness though, we're extremely fortunate to still be in 6th after that mini-break. This is a must-win to separate ourselves from the myriad of fringe playoff teams behind us and a must-win if we want to have any hopes of catching up to Ottawa in the near future.

Youre the guy that called Richards Cannon right?

Id like a win and a 4 pt night for JVR to get him some more Calder consideration. Didnt realize he is something like 4 pts back of the leader with less games played...And probably a hell of a lot less PP time and playing time in general.

Huh? i never made a Flyers suck Flyer truck video? I know what your talking about though... A caps fan made that when they played each other in the playoffs 2 years ago.

I have to confirm with my cousin but i believe we are in 205... you?

With the eastern conference being as tight as it is this is a must win, especially after being shutout in Atlanta. Let's hope this game is the beginning of another lengthy win streak vs. the Thrashers.

Kind of mad that Atlanta snapped the streak last game. Time to start a new one.

Hopefully, some one fights Colby Armstrong for the hit he made on JVR last game. I know Asham already got to him and roughed him up, but I never liked him anyway.

Once again I'll be missing this one as it happens. And once again thank the powers that be for DVR.

This is what I'll be dealing with at work:

Betts' daughter was born yesterday. He's probably going to have a monster performance today

Also, Laperriere's got new teeth.
