Today in Philadelphia Flyers history: Parent blanks Chicago, Propp's 300th NHL goal

Andre Ringuette

An almost-daily look back at how the Philadelphia Flyers have fared on this day, recalling some of the more memorable moments, achievements, and events that shaped the organization throughout the club's storied history

Heading into tonight's clash with the Washington Capitals at the Wells Fargo Center, the Flyers own a 9-7-3-0 all-time mark in 19 contests played on November 1. This will be the first-ever November 1 meeting between the Flyers and Caps.

1970 -- Larry Hale's goal early in the third period proved to be the eventual game-winner and Bernie Parent made 27 saves as the Flyers skated to a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Spectrum.

Philadelphia built a 3-0 lead on first period tallies from Serge Bernier and Jean-Guy Gendron, and Hale's 6:19 into the final frame before hanging on for the one-goal win.

Bobby Clarke assisted on two of the Flyer markers, including the game-winner.

1973 -- Bill Barber scored a late first period power play goal and Bernie Parent turned away all 25 shots he faced as the Flyers blanked the Chicago Blackhawks 1-0 at the Spectrum.

1975 -- Each member of the LCB Line scored a goal as the line totaled three goals and eight points, and Wayne Stephenson made 31 saves to lead the Flyers to an 8-1 drubbing of the Boston Bruins at the Spectrum.

Orest Kindrachuk, Bob Kelly, Andre Dupont, Lonsberry, and rookie Mel Bridgman also hit the back of the net for Philadelphia, who won for a third straight outing and ran their season record to 8-1-2.

1979 -- Mel Bridgman, Rick MacLeish, and Reggie Leach each scored goals, and Pete Peeters stopped 31 of 32 shots in a 3-1 triumph over the St. Louis Blues at the Spectrum.

Leach's tally gave him nine goals in his last six games and 10 in Philadelphia's first nine contests of the year, as the team ran its unbeaten streak to seven games (6-0-1) and overall season mark to 7-1-1.

1980 -- Bill Barber scored twice in a three-goal Flyers' third period as they erased a 2-0 deficit and Rick St. Croix made 28 saves in a 3-3 tie with the Quebec Nordiques at Le Colisee.

Goals by Robbie Ftorek and Marc Tardif gave Quebec a two-goal lead heading into the third period, but goals from Barber and Al Hill in the first 2:03 of the frame knotted the game at 2-2. Barber then gave Philadelphia their first lead of the game with a power play marker midway through the third, before Jamie Hislop beat St. Croix for the game-tying tally less than three minutes later.

1981 -- Defenseman Bob "The Count" Dailey suffers a career-ending injury as his ankle is shattered when he crashes into the boards while in a race for an icing touch up with Tony McKegney in a 6-3 loss to the Buffalo Sabres at Memorial Auditorium.

1986 -- Tim Kerr's power play goal with 53 seconds left in regulation snaps a 2-2 tie and Ron Hextall made 21 saves as the Flyers pulled out a late 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins at the Spectrum.

Philadelphia goals from Ron Sutter and Brian Propp and Bruins' tallies from Ray Bourque and Cam Neely knotted the game heading into the third period before Kerr's late-game heroics. Captain Dave Poulin hit the empty net with Boston goalie Doug Keans pulled for an extra attacker just 21 seconds after Kerr's game-winning marker.

1987 -- Murray Craven had a goal and three points and Brian Propp scored his 300th career NHL goal in a 4-1 triumph over the Los Angeles Kings at the Spectrum.

Dave Brown and rookie Magnus Roupe also scored for Philadelphia, who broke a five-game winless skid (0-4-1) by virtue of the victory.

Propp, who had spent his entire nine-year career with Philadelphia up to this point, became just the fifth player in franchise history to record 300 goals with the Flyers when he beat Rollie Melanson midway through the second period. Craven's shot hit off Melanson before deflecting off Propp and into the net.

Following the game, Propp had a great quote regarding the milestone goal and how it would be remembered:

"What the heck. The grandchildren will hear that I skated into the zone, deked two guys and put one in the top shelf. In fact, some guys might hear that tomorrow."

Ron Hextall, playing in just his fourth game of the campaign after missing time with a groin injury to start the season, stopped 28 of 29 shots to pick up his first win of the year (1-2-1).

1989 -- Tim Kerr posted his second goal of the game in with 7:49 remaining in regulation to give the Flyers a 5-5 tie with the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena.

Defenseman Gord Murphy tallied a pair of goals, and Ron Sutter added another in the deadlock, while Pete Peeters stopped eight of 10 shots in relief of Ron Hextall to earn the tie.

1990 -- Rookies Mike Ricci and Dale Kushner each scored their first NHL goals and Ken Wregget made 25 saves as the Flyers doubled up the Minnesota North Stars 6-3 at the Spectrum.

Rick Tocchet, Kjell Samuelsson, Derrick Smith, and Normand Lacombe also beat Minnesota starter Jon Casey, as Philadelphia snapped a four-game losing streak.

2000 -- Paul Ranheim beat Chris Terreri with 1:34 left in the third period and Brian Boucher turned aside 32 of 33 shots to help the Flyers salvage a point in a 1-1 tie with the New Jersey Devils at Brendan Byrne Arena.

2003 -- Sami Kapanen scored twice and Robert Esche made 21 saves as the Flyers dominated Ed Belfour and the Toronto Maple Leafs 7-1 at the Air Canada Centre.

Philadelphia took control of the contest early as they received goals from Michal Handzus, Kim Johnsson, and Justin Williams within a 3:24 span in the first period.

Tony Amonte and Jeremy Roenick also beat Belfour to give the Flyers their third win in four games.

2010 -- Scott Hartnell scored a pair of goals and Sergei Bobrovsky made 28 saves to lead the Flyers to a 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes at the Wells Fargo Center. It was the club's seventh consecutive win over Carolina.

Hartnell's second goal of the game early in the third period gave Philadelphia a 3-1 lead, and would prove to be the eventual game-winner. Claude Giroux also scored for the Flyers, who extended their winning streak for four straight outings.

November 1 Flyers' Birthday

Phil Myre 1948 -- At age 31, Myre came to Philadelphia from the St. Louis Blues in a trade for Blake Dunlop and Rick Lapointe in the summer of 1979. Already a veteran of 10 NHL seasons, the Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec-native proved to be the perfect compliment to rookie netminder Pete Peeters.

Myre was an integral part of the 1979/80 "Streak" team that went 35 games without a loss, posting an 11-0-6 mark during the historic stretch and finished the season with an 18-7-15 record in 41 games. He appeared in six playoff contests that spring as the Flyers made a run to the Stanley Cup Final, posting a 5-1 mark with the lone shutout he would record during his brief stay with the Orange-and-Black.

He began the 1980/81 campaign with a 6-5-4 mark before being sent to the Colorado Rockies in exchange for cash in February of 1981.
