Current and Miscellaneous:
  • The Flyers' W-L-T-OTL regular season record is 38-24-7-2 including 1-1-0-0 this season.
  • The Flyers' W-L-T-OTL regular season record at home is 16-13-6-2.
  • The Flyers' W-L-T-OTL regular season record away is 22-11-1-0 including three straight losses.
  • The Flyers are 6-7-1 since the start of the 2007-08 season.
  • The Flyers are 2-4 in the POs, losing in 1996 (1-2 record home and away).

1993-1995:
  • March 1, 1993 -- Flyers' Senior Vice President Bob Clarke left the organization and became the Vice President and General Manager of the new expansion team based in South Florida. The NHL awarded franchises this day to south Florida and Anaheim. "It was really a hard decision for me because of feelings about Philadelphia and the Flyers. My family and I love Philadelphia and the Flyers. But I have to work and I wanted to manage and that job wasn't in Philadelphia." In the 1993-94 season, Clarke was chosen The Sporting News' and The Hockey News' Executive of the Year. Clarke was fired by the Flyers in April 1990, joined the Minnesota North Stars later that off-season for two seasons, rejoined the Flyers in June 1992, then, after one season with the Panthers, rejoined the Flyers in June 1994.
  • November 2, 1993 -- In the first meeting at Florida, Dominic Roussel made 27 saves and the Flyers out-scored the Panthers 4-0 in the second period en route to a 4-3 win in Miami Arena. Philly trailed 2-0 after one period but scored four consecutive goals in the second period. The second line of Rod Brind'Amour (1-2-3), Kevin Dineen (1-1-2) and Josef Beranek (1-1-2) scored three times in a span of 3:35 to give the Flyers a 3-2 edge. Dineen and Eric Lindros scored consecutive SHGs to give Philly a 4-2 lead. The first goal scored in this series was by Florida's Jesse Belanger.
  • February 10, 1994 -- In the first meeting in Philadelphia, Eric Lindros' (2-1-3) second goal 50 seconds into OT lifted the Flyers to a 4-3 win. Lindros said afterwards that Mikael Renberg should have been awarded the goal which was scored in a crease scramble. All three Flyers' goals in regulation came on special teams' including a SHG by Dave Tippett. Florida scored twice in the final six minutes of regulation to even the score including the tying goal with 1:19 to play when netminder Dominic Roussel erred on a clear behind his goal and left the front of his net unprotected. Mark Fitzpatrick made 34 saves for the Panthers. Panthers' Vice President and General Manager Bob Clarke was in attendance.
  • March 20, 1994 --John Vanbiesbrouck made 45 saves leading the Panthers to a 5-3 home win. Brian Benning had three assists for the Panthers including on second period goals by Scott Mellanby (1-1-2) and Dave Lowry (1-1-2) which gave the Panthers a 3-2 lead. Philly outshot Florida 48-25 including 36-14 over the last two periods but the Panthers held a 4-2 goals edge. The Flyers were led by Mikael Renberg (1-2-3) and Rod Brind'Amour (two PPGs). The win gave Florida 73 points tying them with the 1967-68 Flyers and 1979-80 Hartford Whalers for the most points by a first-year NHL team.
  • March 24, 1994 --Eric Lindros (1-2-3) had three points and Tommy Soderstrom made 19 saves in the Flyers' 4-3 home win. Josef Beranek scored at the 2:10 mark then Lindros' goal made it 2-0. In the second period, the Flyers went ahead 4-0 on goals by Mikael Renberg and Rod Brind'Amour and both were assisted by Lindros. Florida scored twice in the third period and ex-Flyer Andrei Lomakin, claimed by the Panthers in the expansion draft, finished the scoring.
  • April 7, 1994 --The teams played to a 3-3 OT tie in Philadelphia which damaged the Flyers' PO hopes. Ex-Flyer Gord Murphy's (1-1-2) soft back-hander early in the third period from 40-feet out beat goalie Tommy Soderstrom who made 39 saves. Soderstrom said "You don't expect a backhand from the blue line, but I saw it when he shot it. That was not the problem. I lost it on the way." The Panthers held a 42-23 shots advantage. Each team scored two PPGs.
  • June 15, 1994 -- Bob Clarke returned to the Flyers as President and General Manager and in exchange Philadelphia traded a 1994 second round pick (used to select Ryan Johnson). Clarke was the Vice-President and General Manager of the Panthers. Clarke became the first person to win The Hockey News' Executive of the Year in successive years with different franchises as he accomplished the feat with the Panthers for 1993-94 and with the Flyers for the 1994-95 season. The Flyers failed to make the playoffs in the previous five years then advanced to the 1995 Conference Finals under his leadership. Clarke was with the Minnesota North Stars for the 1990-91 and 1991-92 seasons, including when the team played in the 1991 Stanley Cup Finals, and then returned to the Flyers for one season, 1992-93, in a non-hockey operations role.

  • February 9, 1995 -- JVB stopped 26 Flyers' shots in the Panthers' 3-0 victory in the Spectrum. Florida led 3-0 after one, scoring three times in about seven minutes. Dave Lowry gave Florida a 1-0 lead. The Panthers held an 18-7 shots advantage in the first period; the Flyers had a 19-10 edge the rest of the game. The game marked the debut of Eric Desjardins and John LeClair after a trade with Montreal earlier in the day. Coach Terry Murray took LW Mikael Renberg off Rod Brind'Amour's line and put him with center Eric Lindros and LW John LeClair on a newly formed unit eventually termed the "Legion of Doom Line."
  • March 2, 1995 -- Florida's John Vanbiesbrouck made 35 saves while each member of The Legion of Doom line had two points in a 2-2 tie at Philly. With the Flyers trailing 2-0, Mikael Renberg's (1-1-2) PPG put Philly on the board with under two minutes left in the second period. Eric Lindros (1-1-2) scored in the third period. John LeClair (0-2-2) had two assists. The Flyers outshot the Panthers 37-17, including 27-12 after 40 minutes of play.
  • March 18, 1995 -- Eric Lindros (3-1-4) completed the hat trick with an OT goal in a 4-3 win at Florida. The Legion of Doom line (Lindros 4, Mikael Renberg 3 and John Leclair 2) had nine of the team's eleven points. Lindros scored his 101st career goal in his 152nd game. The Flyers limited Florida to 11 shots over the last 42+ minutes and Dominic Roussel made 25 saves for the victory. It was the Flyers' seventh straight win.
  • April 18, 1995 -- Eric Lindros (1-2-3) and Mikael Renberg (1-1-2) combined for five points and Ron Hextall made 18 saves in a 3-1 win at Florida. In the opening minute, Florida's Jody Hull stole the puck from Kevin Dineen and had a clear breakaway but was thwarted by Hextall. The Flyers led 3-0 after two periods with a shot advantage of 23-7. Gord Murphy snapped Hextall's shutout bid in the third period. It was the Flyers' seventh straight win, the second time that season they reached that figure after a win against the Panthers.
  • November 2, 1995 -- JVB made 21 saves, Rob Niedermayer scored in the first period then Radek Dvorak made it 2-0 in the second period in Florida's 2-1 win at Philly. The Panthers held a 15-3 shots advantage after one period but were outshot 19-6 over the last 40 minutes. Upset with the performance, coach Terry Murray benched Legion of Doom linemates John LeClair and Mikael Renberg for much of the second period and he elevated Rob DiMaio and Shjon Podein. Eric Lindros scored the lone Flyers' goal but he suffered a strained MCL in his left knee when he was low-bridged by Jason Woolley (who received a clipping penalty) on his final shift and missed the next seven games; Lindros had 11 goals and 11 assists in the Flyers' first 12 games and was named the NHL Player of the Month for October 1995. Afterwards, Murray thought the hit was an illegal attempt to injure but later Lindros said "I know Jason ... he doesn't play that way." Rod Brind'Amour was ejected with 2:22 remaining due to a checking-from-behind major. The Flyers entered the game with a 7-1-2 record through 10 games. After the game, Renberg was asked of the benching and he said "We deserved it. Nobody is above the team. I wasn't helping the team." LeClair was asked a similiar question and he responded "It's not my place to say that. I'm a player, he's the coach."
  • November 7, 1995 -- Radek Dvorak (2-0-2) scored the GWG with 3:16 to play and Florida netted three goals in the last 7:45 of the game en route to a 4-2 home win. JVB made 14 saves in the win. The Panthers held a 27-16 shots advantage. Garth Snow made 23 saves in the loss. Kevin Dineen fought Scott Mellanby in the first period ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GvWbz20wa0 ).
  • November 29, 1995 -- Kevin Haller's shot deflected off the back of Paul Laus and past goalie JVB with 30 seconds left in OT and the Flyers beat the Panthers 2-1 in Florida. Brent Fedyk tied the game 1-1 1:02 into the third period. Philly did not have a shot on goal for the opening 16 minutes but each team finished with 28 and the Flyers held a 20-7 advantage covering the third period and OT combined. Ron Hextall made 27 stops. JVB made 26 saves for Florida. The Panthers' team-record seven game home win streak was snapped. Joel Otto made quick work of Rob Niedermayer -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTeITuMuTMs

1996-1999:
  • January 22, 1996 -- Rod Brind'Amour scored with 2:39 left in the third and the game ended 1-1 (OT) in Philadelphia. Ron Hextall stopped 23 shots including a game-saver with 38.5 seconds to play in overtime when Mike Hough beat defender Kevin Haller and had a breakaway shot denied.The Panthers' Jody Hull snapped a scoreless tie 6:58 into the third period. JVB made 30 saves for Florida. Mikael Renberg left the ice due to an abdominal strain, originally suffered in late December, and eventually missed 30 of the final 36 regular season games.
  • February 14, 1996 -- Ron Hextall made 28 saves, including several key stops in the third period, leading Philly to a 4-2 victory in Florida. John LeClair (1-1-2) scored with 16 seconds remaining on the Flyers' only PP attempt and it was the go-ahead goal at 2-1. Anatoli Semenov also scored in the middle period to put Philly ahead 3-1. Paul Laus made it 3-2 early in the third period and that is when Hextall rose to the challenge. The Panthers went 0-for-5 on the PP.
  • May 2, 1996 -- In Game One of the East Semis in Philadelphia, JVB recorded the shutout as the Panthers' strong team defense limited the Flyers in a 2-0 win. The result of the tight-checking game was a combined total of 33 shots (Flyers 18, Panthers 15) on goal, the lowest figure in any Flyers' PO game. Stu Barnes (1-1-2) and Dave Lowry scored goals, the first coming on a 2-on-1 break with Kerry Huffman the sole Flyer back, and the second coming with just over four minutes left and with Kjell Samuelsson in the box. There were seven minors and 14 PIMs total in the game. Highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZ3RNW5cyWc
  • May 4, 1996 -- In Game Two, Eric Lindros' (1-2-3) third period goal snapped a 2-2 tie and provided the Flyers with a 3-2 victory in the Spectrum. Lindros was a key factor throughtout the game including some plays that infuriated the Panthers' brass like knocking off the mask of goalie JVB and cutting Stu Barnes (five stitches) near his eye. John LeClair (1-2-3) also had three points. The Flyers scored twice in the second period, goals by Karl Dykhuis and LeClair, to take a 2-1 lead but Dave Lowry evened the score with a third period PPG. JVB made 44 saves for Florida. Philly outshot the Panthers 47-26 but goalie Ron Hextall made huge saves in the third period. After the game, Florida head coach Doug MacLean verbally attacked referee Mark Faucette and then he and Panthers' GM Bryan Murray contacted other NHL execs to complain that Lindros' stickwork was not whistled. The Panthers were issued a gross misconduct penalty at the 20:00 mark. Highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJxgY3M55a4

  • May 7, 1996 -- In Game Three, the Flyers recorded a 3-1 victory in Miami. Dan Quinn (1-1-2) and Eric Lindros (GWG) scored on consecutive first period PPs with Brian Skrudlund off on a double minor for high-sticking. The Flyers outshot the Panthers 17-2 in the first period and led 2-0. The game finished with multiple penalties including a Lindros-Ed Jovanovski confrontation when the Flyers' captain tried to score into the empty net. Scott Mellanby, according to Flyers' head coach Terry Murray, punched Lindros while Bill Lindsay came in and jumped him. Philly outshot Florida 34-25 and Ron Hextall made 24 saves. The game began with the Panthers' fans chanting "Lindros Sucks" throughtout the National Anthem and then tossing plastic rats at him while he stood on the ice. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lw6y...eature=related
  • May 9, 1996 -- In Game Four, Dave Lowry's controversial goal 4:06 in OT gave Florida a 4-3 victory. Lowry's goal came as the net was lifted off its moorings by Scott Mellanby but a video replay called by referee Rob Schick was done to see if the puck was kicked into the goal, which it wasn't. Rob Niedermayer scored twice in the first period, including on the game's first shot, to give Florida a 2-0 lead at 8:23, the second of which came on a 5-on-3 with two Flyers' defensemen penalized. Mikael Renberg (2-0-2) and Rod Brind'Amour (1-1-2) scored second period goals within 78 seconds to tie the game but a crucial error cost the Flyers as defenseman Kerry Huffman, subbing for the injured Kevin Haller, made a terrible gaffe and Stu Barnes capitalized with 5.5 seconds to go in the middle period when he batted a Paul Laus shot. The Flyers dominated the second period 24-11 in shots and held a 46-32 advantage for the game. With the Miami Arena crowd sensing victory, Renberg temporarily silenced them when he jammed in his own rebound with 1:07 left in regulation. JVB made 43 saves for the Panthers. An odd moment: after the first period was over the Flyers complained that there was a clock malfuntion at the end of the first period, which was verified; the teams played the lost time of 3.6 seconds to start the second period. Rob DiMaio returned to the Flyers' lineup after missing the prior 17 games with a knee injury. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0jpvQhYxKo

  • May 12, 1996 -- In Game Five, Mike Hough scored 8:05 into the second OT to give the Panthers a 2-1 victory on Mother's Day in Philadelphia. Ron Hextall, highly praised afterwards by Terry Murray, made 40 saves and was one of the few bright spots in a dismal effort. At the 2:27 mark, the Flyers were given a five-minute PP for a Paul Laus elbow but managed just one shot on goal. Eric Lindros scored a PPG with one second left on a 5-on-3 in the second period but Stu Barnes tied the score early with a deflection off Dale Hawerchuk's skate 2:39 into the third period. The Panthers outshot the Flyers 17-5 in the two overtimes. It turned out to be the last Flyers' game played at the Spectrum (until two preseason games in 2008). No penalties were called after the 12:54 mark, meaning 55:11 was played without a call (nine minors and 18 PIMs total). The game drew the highest NHL rating ever for South Florida, an 8.2, beating the 4.9 and previous high for Game One of the series. Lindros said "We're coming back here. We're going to win." Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGYHEpIXMc0 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rO9y...eature=related
  • May 14, 1996 -- In Game Six, JVB made 34 saves and Florida clinched the series with a 4-1 victory played in Miami Arena. Bill Lindsay (1-1-2) scored a SHG in the first period and that 1-0 lead held until Rob Niedermayer scored a PPG early in the third. Dave Lowry's goal made it 3-0 before John LeClair scored a late goal to cut the gap to 3-1. Kevin Haller returned to the Flyers' lineup for his first action all series (broken thumb). Florida's Scott Mellanby said "I kind of feel a little numb right now. I really didn't see this series going this way." Terry Murray said "JVB was the best player of the series. He was tremendous." Mikael Renberg said "We had control of the series and we let it slip away. You have to give Florida credit for the way they played. They played really good. They are a good team. Maybe we were trying to do too much as individual players."
  • October 5, 1996 -- In the first regular season game played in the Flyers' new CoreStates Center, JVB made 31 saves and backed the Panthers to a 3-1 win. Brad Smyth gave Florida a 1-0 lead and scored the first regular season goal in the building, his only score of the season. Dainius Zubrus, at 18 years and 3 months, was the youngest Flyer to score a goal 13 seconds later to even the game 1-1. Scott Mellanby scored the eventual GWG.
  • October 27, 1996 -- Scott Mellanby's 200th NHL goal snapped a scoreless tie 29 seconds into the second period and Florida led the rest of the game en route to a 3-2 win in Philadelphia. JVB made 21 saves for the victory. Ron Hextall made 25 saves and Daniel Lacroix had two points in the defeat. At 7-0-3, the Panthers were the NHL's lone remaining unbeaten team and had the franchise's first 10-game unbeaten streak.
  • November 2, 1996 -- Joel Otto scored the GWG with 1:02 left in the third period and Ron Hextall made 26 saves in Philly's 3-2 road win. The Flyers trailed 2-0 past the game's midway point until Trent Klatt (1-1-2) scored then Shjon Podein tied the game with under eight minutes left in regulation. The Flyers held a 44-28 shots advantage including 22-12 in the third period. JVB made 41 saves for the Panthers. Shjon Podein ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjJsVsgtM_g ) and Dan Kordic bought got into first period fights with Paul Laus. The Panthers lost for the first time all season (8-1-4 W-L-T record) and fell three games shy of tying the longest unbeaten streak at the start of an NHL season (Edmonton was 12-0-3 to start the 1984-85 season).

  • December 10, 1996 -- Joel Otto, Eric Lindros and John LeClair each had a goal and an assist leading the Flyers to a 5-4 home win shown on ESPN2. The Flyers led 4-1 after two periods and midway through the third period. The Panthers went 3-for-6 on the PP including their final goal on a 6-on-4 with JVB pulled. In the third period, there were two fights within 26 seconds: Scott Daniels vs. Rhett Warriner ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-Bb2SYq8CI ) and Daniel Lacroix vs. Ed Jovanovski ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZU56hspxpU ). At the 10:04 mark of the final period, all ten skaters were penalized including eight for roughing minors and two with misconducts. Eric Desjardins received a minor 1:10 later, leading to a congested penalty box. John Druce suffered a strained right shoulder and received twelve stitches over his right eye after being checked into the boards; he missed the following five games.

Eric Lindros' highstick to the head of Rob Niedermeyer resulted in a concussion and 10-game absence from the lineup which drew the ire of Panthers' coach Bryan Murray. Scott Niedermeyer, then of the New Jersey Devils, was asked of the play and he said "I only saw the play once on a highlight. I didn't think it was all that bad. He had his hands and stick up. Maybe when a guy is that big, you don't need to do that. But I don't think it was that dirty a hit. I think maybe it was just unfortunate how he got hit." Florida's Gord Murphy suffered a 15-stitch cut after an accidental high stick by John LeClair. JVB made 26 saves for the Panthers including one on a feeble penalty shot attempt by Trent Klatt; afterwards, teammate Dan Lacroix had a chalkboard drawing of Klatt's shot by showing the puck exploding after the pad save to which Klatt laughed and said "If you can't laugh at yourself, you can't make fun of others."

Prior to the game, the Panthers acquired Viktor Kozlov from San Jose (for Dave Lowry) and after an eight hour fight he committed a costly turnover which led to the Flyers' fourth goal. Afterwards, with much hype surrounding the events of October 1, 1997, Florida's Scott Mellanby said of Lindros "To be honest, the hit on Robbie (Niedermeyer) may be a penalty but it is not dirty. He's big, what is he supposed to do, play soft?" Fifty seconds into the game, Niedermeyer shadowed Lindros, checked him to the ice and then poked him with a stick; he was penalized. Afterwards, Niedermeyer said "I just wanted to send a message, and I did that, but I think ultimately he (Lindros) made us look foolish. He was the one who set up the two goals." Florida head coach Doug MacLean said "He wanted to get it out of his system...I'm proud of him."

  • December 20, 1997 -- Garth Snow recorded his third career shutout by making 14 stops and Rod Brind'Amour and Eric Lindros netted PPGs in the Flyers' 2-0 home win.

2010-2014:
  • March 3, 2010 -- The slumping Panthers (losers of seventh straight) defeated the hot Flyers (winners of the last five games) 7-4 at Florida. David Booth (1-3-4) and Bryan McCabe (1-3-4) both had four points, Michael Frolik scored twice and Tomas Vokoun made 38 saves. There were four fights in the opening period including Ian Laperriere-Gregory Campbell at the 0:03 mark, Nick Tarnasky five seconds into the game and Mike Richards-David Booth at 2:45. Asham and Tarnasky tussled a second time at the 16:45 mark. Florida led 2-0 after one period and held a 14-6 shots advantage. Booth's goal made it 3-1 12:04 into the second period, Jeff Carter scored nine seconds into a powerplay twelve seconds later, then Jason Garrison, recently promoted from the minors, scored his first goal of the season at the 12:40 mark to make it 4-2 and finish a three-goal flurry in a span of 36 seconds. Florida led 6-3 after two periods. The Panthers edged the Flyers 43-42 in the shots department with Philly having a 36-29 advantage over the last two periods.

The Panthers scored twice in the last three minutes of the first period to take a 2-0 lead. The Flyers were not scheduled to play again until December 28 which led Panthers' head coach Peter DeBoer to say "I'm sure we caught them with one foot out the door for Christmas break, but we'll take it." Sergei Bobrovsky (18 saves, 22 shots) was replaced by Brian Boucher with 8:25 left. The Flyers, atop of the NHL's standings, entered the night 7-0-1 in the prior eight games.

Playing the Panthers over the last couple years has been a serious drag. Seem to crap the bed far more often than normal. I was at the game in December when we got owned. Let's try and avoid that this time.

Crush'em! Every top 9 player we have will get a goal tonight. How many we'll allow, I won't say. Coburn will continue his strong play and add a couple of assists as well.

Let down game IMO. The Flyers put a lot into last night’s win. I'll be surprise if they have anything left in the tank, emotionally or physically.

Great GDT, by the looks of it it seems the Panthers are probably still having nightmares about Lindros, he flat out dominated them in all categories for 7 years if the stats are anything to go by, seems in the GDT he was integral in almost every game.

Yes, I do wonder wtf. I would have been fine with it before last night, but let some lines develop some friggin chemistry. Give Versteeg a chance to adequately play with two teammates before you swap them out.
