To show you how long it's been since the Flyers last won in Edmonton, the goalie for the Oilers that day was Dominic Roussel.

Yes, the same Dominic Roussel who broke into the NHL with the Flyers a decade earlier. The date was March 19, 2001, and here are a couple of other tidbits from that day:

-The Flyers won, 4-2, with Brian Boucher (25 saves) getting the victory.

-Mark Recchi led the offensive charge for the Flyers with a goal and an assist.

-The other Flyers goal scorers were Keith Primeau and a pair of defensemen - Eric Desjardins and Andy Delmore.

-The Flyers with the most shots on goal (3) were Recchi, Justin Williams and Kent Manderville.

-The Flyers' ice-time leaders were defensemen Luke Richardson (24:09) and Dan McGillis (23:40).

-The Oilers' ice-team leader was former Flyers blue-liner Janne Niinimaa (28:30).

-The lone fight of the game took place between the Flyers' Todd Fedoruk and the Oilers' Georges Laraque.

-Longtime Oilers winger Ryan Smyth had a goal and an assist for Edmonton, while future Flyer Mike Comrie added two assists for the Oilers.

For what it's worth, the Flyers are 0-2 with a tie in Edmonton since that night, so it's not as if the teams meet at Rexall Place every season.


and the pickem odds are...........
