Flyers Achieve 1700th Victory In Franchise History

Keeping in mind their 5-0 loss to Florida back in December, the Flyers avenged their embarrassing game with a 3-2 victory of their own tonight. James van Riemsdyk netted the game winning goal while Danny Briere had a goal and two assists on the night. The game started off with both teams being assessed a minor penalty within the first three minutes.

Vokoun and Flyers already linked

With all this talk about Tomas Vokoun possibly being the best value for a goaltender upgrade for a potential Flyers’ Stanley Cup run, I thought I’d return to my role as Flyers Faithful historian and tell you how the current Florida Panthers goaltender and the Orange and Black are already linked. On February 6, 1997 — 14 years ago tonight — the Montreal Canadiens came to the CoreStates Center for what figured to be a routine mid-season tilt between two Eastern Conference clubs headed for playoff berths. At this point, since the franchise-altering Mark Recchi-for-LeClair-Desjardins-Dionne deal was consummated almost two years …
