With one game remaining in the 2021-22 season, Cam Atkinson and James van Riemsdyk are tied, leading the Flyers with 23 goals.

Only three times in team history has Philadelphia’s leading goal-scorer netted fewer than 23. There was Leon Rochefort’s 21 tallies in Philly’s inaugural season, a 74-game affair, and more recently, Jake Voracek’s 22 goals in lockout-shortened 2013, as well as Joel Farabee’s 20 goals last year, a 56-game COVID season.

In a season with at least 80 games, no Flyer has ever lead the team in goals with fewer than 26, as Mark Recchi notched in 2003-04.

Atkinson is out, giving JvR the opportunity to match Recchi’s total by simply scoring a hat trick on Friday against the Ottawa Senators in the season finale.

I don’t really know what the point of this post was, but it’s gotta demonstrate something, I feel.

Regardless, listen to the postgame. There’s only ONE LEFT!
