Former Flyers goaltender Ron Hextall was the first goaltender to shoot and score a goal in the regular season and the first goaltender to shoot and score a goal in the playoffs. He shot for 2 career goals before any other goaltender had shot for 1. His 2 goals still stand as the NHL record (tied with Brodeur). He is also the Flyers all-time wins leader and holds the NHL records for most penalty minutes in a season and in a career for a goaltender and most penalty minutes in a season for a rookie goaltender. How is this holder of 6 NHL goaltending records not in the Hall-of-Fame yet?
Flyers probably wont make the playoffs unless they win 2 of the 3 games. They need to draft Steven Stamkos and a few other top picks in the draft. (have to keep their eye on Ryan Ellis and Hart in the OHL for furture draft picks).
Flyers have won the Stanley Cup 2 times. Both were in consecutive years, 1973-74, 1974-75
1 against the Sabres!
"Starting today, the Buffalo Sabres reason for existence, is to be to win the Stanley Cup. And we wanna win the cup for our fans. We'll aim high, winning is not a goal, it is a belief". ~ Terry Pegula 'New owner of the Buffalo Sabres. New era begins....'
