1972: Retiring goaltender Bruce Gamble is honored before a 4-4 tie with the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Spectrum. The goalkeeper had unknowingly suffered a heart attack during the first period of a February game before posting a 3-1 victory over the Canucks in Vancouver, and the heart attack was diagnosed after the contest.
1973: Rick MacLeish recorded both goal number 50 and point 100 of the season and tough guy Dave Schultz scored two goals, but Philly dropped a 5-4 decision to the Penguins at the Igloo in Pittsburgh. The Flyers carried a 4-3 lead into the third period but the Pens beat Philadelphia netminder Bobby Taylor twice, including Jean Pronovost's game-winner with 1:13 remaining in regulation. MacLeish became the first-ever Flyer to record 50 goals in a single season, just the eighth player in NHL history to do so. He became the second Flyer to ever hit the 100-point mark, reaching the milestone just three days after Bobby Clarke had done the same.
1976: The LCB Line runs rampant as Bill Barber (hat trick, assist), Bobby Clarke (five assists), and Reggie Leach (two goals, three assists) combine for 14 points in an 11-2 rout of the Washington Capitals at the Spectrum. Leach's two goals gave him 60 for the season, becoming just the second NHL player to hit the plateau (Boston's Phil Esposito was the other). The Flyers outshot Washington by a whopping 44-11 through two periods, and ended the night with a club-record 62 shots on Caps netminder Ron Low when all was said and done.
2003: The Flyers received goals from Kim Johnsson, Jeremy Roenick, Mark Recchi, and Radovan Somik, and Roman Cechmanek needed to only turn aside 10 shots to post his 20th career regular season shutout in a 4-0 triumph over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
2012: The Flyers spot the Penguins a 2-0 lead just 4:58 into the game, then roar back with four third period goals in a 6-4 victory at CONSOL Energy Center. Jakub Voracek scores two of the third period markers to give him 17 goals, setting a new single season career-high. Pittsburgh outshoots the Flyers by a 47-26 margin, but goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky makes 43 saves to continue his mastery of the Pens at CONSOL, improving his record to 4-0-0 against the Penguins at their new home.
