He was my favorite player growing up and my Howe #2 jersey was the first jersey I ever had (given to me for my 10th B-day).  I tried to squeeze into it for the number retirement game but it was (shockingly) too small.  I ended up using safety pins to pin it to one of my current jerseys that fit so that I could wear #2 for one last time.  While I looked ridiculous it was my way of honoring Howe on that night.

March 18 in Flyers History......

1971 - Looks like they beat the stinkin' Rangers 2-1 at the Spectrum, so that's something

1994 - Flyers acquire that man-beast Rob DiMaio from Tampa for Jim Cummins and a the Flyers' 4th rounder in 1995

1995 - Eric Lindros notches a Hat Trick with OT GW against the Panthers and long time Flyer-killer / future Flyer (killer) John Vanbiesbrouck

2011 - Richards and Carter were presumably really hung over at practice

2012 - Scott Hartnell stays up long enough to score with 1 second left in OT to beat the Penguins. Out. Freakin'. Standing.

Today in Flyers history in 2003 Patrick Sharp was called up to the big club for the first time.  Too bad he sucked so bad and was traded, he may have actually been a good player...oh wait!  :ph34r:

 

Also on this banner day we traded for Dave Babych (3rd rounder) and Dan McGillis (Janne Niinimaa)

Today in Flyers history, in 1980, Bob "The Count" Dailey had five points, tying a Flyers record, to lead the Flyers past the Minnesota North Stars in Game Two of the Stanley Cup Semifinals.

Seventeen years ago today in Flyers history, game 4 of the 2000 Eastern Conference Semifinals began against Pittsburgh.

 

Seventeen years ago tomorrow, it ended. At 152 minutes and one second, Keith Primeau scored to tie the series at two, ending the longest game in post-expansion NHL history, and third longest overall. The Flyers would then go on to win the next two games and advance to the ECF.

You and me both.  When I finished drying my eyes as an 11 year old after watching them lose game 7 of the '87 SCF I took heart as I was sure it was soon their turn

to win.  I would have never imagined that as a 41 year old I am sitting here with grey hairs still starving for a championship.

Love it....:poke:

Last night was a repeat performance of the 75 finals and how the games went.  Buffalo, a 5 year expansion team at the time, dominated play yet could not beat Parent.  Same thing happened last night but it was less great goaltending but still they did not have a shot on goal for a long time.   Hockey is a game of luck in many ways. Out shooting and out skating a team and out playing them does not always mean you will win.

Then we should expect a fog halfway through the game, a bat to pause the game, and Roger Crozier to start for the Preds tomorrow?

Today in Flyer history 2010 Flyers sent Ryan Parent back to Nashville and a conditional draft pick for the rights to Dan Hamhuis.

 

Ans as we all know that didn't work because there was even word Dan wanted to go back home to Vancouver stupid Homer!

      I don't remember how close it was to hitting the post. Still a bullet from Ron. Love how happy the guys are for him. I would have given my left nut and my spleen for a goalie like that and I'm sure that's how they felt.

      Lol. It was just a joke, not a good one really. Some of my best friends are French speakers. Like Podein25 Jr - she's fluent in French, English and Millennial.

      It wasn't just the coaching decision, which was brilliant and fantastic, but some of the other roster moves have worked out beautifully, especially Niskanen and Pitlick. And Hayes.
