    Regular Season Record

    Playoffs Record

    Regular Season Streaks (unless noted)

    1994-99:
    • 1994 -- February 16 -- Joe Sacco (2-2-4) scored two third period goals and Guy Hebert made 26 saves in Anaheim's 6-3 home win, the first matchup between these franchises. Shaun Van Allen (1-2-3) scored 1:05 into the game and the Ducks' led the rest of the contest. Pelle Eklund suffered a hernia and played in his final game with the Flyers; he was eventually traded to the Dallas Stars. There were two fights: Ryan McGill vs. Troy Loney and Claude Boivin vs. Randy Ladouceur.
    • 1994 -- March 27 -- Gary Valk scored his second goal of the contest 24 seconds into OT to lift Anaheim to a 3-2 win in the first matchup between these franchises in Philadelphia. Valk was in the box for holding when Mikael Renberg tied the score at 2-2 with 2:44 to play in the third. Frederic Chabot suffered the loss subbing for Dominic Roussel who was replaced when the Ducks pulled ahead 2-1. Flyers' head coach Terry Simpson said "Dom was OK, but it's the same old story. A couple of shots beat him late and it appeared as though he wasn't ready on any of the shots. The puck was in our zone and it's not like you shouldn't be expecting a shot." Guy Hebert made 29 saves for the win. The game was scoreless until Al Conroy gave Philly a 1-0 lead in the third period. Mark Recchi had two assists including his 100th point of the season. Mikael Renberg tied the game 2-2 and became the first Swedish rookie to record 75 points in an NHL season.
    • 1995 -- March 8 -- Anatoli Semenov was traded to Philadelphia by Anaheim for Milos Holan.
    • 1995 -- October 20 -- Eric Lindros had three points and John LeClair scored twice in the Flyers' 4-2 win in the Arrowhead Pond. LeClair's two goals came in the middle period and gave Philly a 4-0 lead. The Flyers also held a decisive 24-6 shot advantage after two periods. Anaheim scored twice in a 30-second span in the third period. Ron Hextall made 13 saves on 15 shots but was replaced by Dominic Roussel (three saves on three stops) with 3:34 left in the game when multiple players fell on top of him. The injury was diagnosed as a pulled right hamstring and Hextall returned November 9. Shjon Podein and Todd Ewen fought in the first period ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LgXxP7juSU ).

      [​IMG]
    • 1996 -- January 9 -- John LeClair's PPG with 2:27 remaining in the third gave the Flyers a 2-2 tie in the Spectrum. Shawn Antoski and Todd Ewen got fighting majors just four seconds into the game. At the same time, the Ducks were penalized for submitting an illegal lineup (player substitution). The Ducks led 2-0 before seven minutes expired but the Flyers rallied with two PPGs. Guy Hebert made 31 saves for the Ducks and Garth Snow stopped 20 shots for the Flyers. The game was played just two days after a record-snowfall of 30 inches hit Philadelphia yet over 15,000 fans still showed.
    • 1996 -- February 6 -- Bob Corkum was traded to Philadelphia by Anaheim for Chris Herperger and Winnipeg's 7th round choice (previously acquired, Anaheim selected Tony Mohagen) in the 1997 Entry Draft.
    • 1996 -- March 19 -- Anatoli Semenov and Mike Crowley were traded to Anaheim by Philadelphia for Brian Wesenberg.
    • 1996 -- October 16 -- Pat Falloon (1-1-2) scored with 7:53 remaining to cap a three-goal rally in the Flyers' 4-3 road win. Mikael Renberg (1-1-2) tied the game earlier in the third, a period dominated by the Flyers 14-4 in shots and 2-0 in goals. John LeClair (1-1-2) and John Druce (1-1-2) also had two points. Ron Hextall made 24 saves. The Flyers' PP was 2-for-3. It was the home opener for the Mighty Ducks and the debut of a muscular mascot named Wild Wing. As part of the opening festivities, villains dressed in Flyers' jerseys (and Chicago and Los Angeles) attempted to beat little kids in Ducks' jerseys until Wild Wing came to the rescue via a guy-wire. Guy Hebert made 36 saves for Anaheim. The Flyers outshot the Ducks 40-27.
    • 1996 -- October 22 -- Ron Hextall recorded a 12-save shutout in the Flyers' 3-0 win in Philadelphia. The Ducks were outshot 13-1 in the first period and 27-12 in the contest. Shjon Podein, elevated to the top line (with Rod Brind'Amour and Mikael Renberg) in place of injured Eric Lindros, netted the GWG in the first period. Rod Brind'Amour made it 2-0 with one minute to play in the second period. Eric Desjardins (1-1-2) finished the scoring in the third period. Guy Hebert made 23 saves for Anaheim before being replaced by Mikhail Shtalenkov with 4:22 left in the game.
    • 1997 -- October 15 -- Ron Hextall made 33 saves and Mikhail Shtalenkov stopped 30 shots in a 2-2 tie at Anaheim. The Flyers had three minors called against them in a 1:59 stretch late in the third period and Tomas Sandstrom scored with one second left on a 5-on-3 and with 4:32 remaining. The Mighty Ducks led 1-0 through two periods. Daniel Lacroix and Brent Severyn (instigator, game misconduct, 27 PIMs) hooked up in a fight 3:32 into the third period which included a misconduct to the Flyers' Dan Kordic. John LeClair scored 19 seconds into the PP. Eric Lindros (1-1-2) gave Philly a 2-1 lead less than six minute later. Paul Coffey assisted on both goals. Chris Therien, Rod Brind'Amour and Joel Otto were all whistled for minors in a stretch of less than two minutes with under seven minutes to play.
    • 1998 -- March 19 -- Frank Banham scored with 28 seconds left in the second period and Mikhail Shtalenkov made 33 saves in a 3-3 OT tie at Philly. Rod Brind'Amour, who scored his 200th goal as a Flyer, and Janne Niinimaa each had two points. The Flyers held a 36-20 shots advantage including 3-0 in OT. The Ducks' Travis Green was called for tripping as regulation time expired but the Flyers did not capitalize.
    • 1998 -- October 11 -- John LeClair (1-3-4) had four points, Eric Lindros (2-0-2) scored twice and John Vanbiesbrouck made 21 saves in his Flyers' home debut lifting Philly to a 4-1 win in the team's home opener. Dan McGillis had two assists. With 5:53 to play, Luke Richardson intervened in a possible Eric Lindros-Stu Grimson fight and both Richardson and Grimson earned fighting majors while Lindros picked up an unsportsmanlike minor.
    • 1999 -- February 10 -- Fredrik Olausson (2-2-4) and Teemu Selanne (2-1-3) led the offense and Guy Hebert made 28 saves in the Ducks' 5-4 home win. Eric Lindros had four points (2-2-4). John Vanbiesbrouck was pulled at 46:16 with the Flyers losing 5-2 and Ron Hextall played the remainder of the game. The Flyers' PP was 3-for-9 and Anhaim was 3-for-6. The Flyers entered the game with a W-L-T record of 16-1-7 in their last 24 outings.
    • 1999-- November 3 -- John LeClair scored twice (2-0-2) and Eric Lindros (0-3-3) assisted on each goal in a 3-3 draw at Anaheim. LeClair tied the game with five second sremaining in the second period. All six goals came in the second period. Anaheim scored three times on five shots off John Vanbiesbrouck in the period. The Flyers held a 33-21 shots advantage including 23-7 over the last 40 minutes of regulation (14-5 in the second period and 9-2 in the third period). Dominic Roussel made 30 saves for Anaheim.

    2000-09:
    • 2000 -- February 3 -- The struggling Flyers, 1-4-3 in the last 8 games, fired 48 shots at Guy Hebert, including a team-record 10 in overtime, but settled for a 3-3 tie in Philadelphia. The OT shots total was 10-3. Eric Lindros' (1-2-3) PPG, the Flyers first in the last 17 tries, made it 3-3 and came about five minutes after Teemu Selanne gave Anaheim a 3-2 lead during a 5-on-3. Lindros factored in each goal including one by John LeClair (1-1-2) in the game's opening minute. John Vanbiesbrouck made 28 saves.
    • 2000 -- October 21 -- Teemu Selanne's PPG with 2:38 remaining sparked the Ducks to a 4-3 win in Philadelphia. Tony Hrkac tied the game with a third period goal for Anaheim. The Flyers outshot the Ducks 18-5 in the first period and led 2-0, but Anaheim outshot Philadelphia 18-14 the balance of the game. John LeClair underwent disk surgery at USC University Hospital in Los Angeles and did not return until November 26, 2000.
    • 2002 -- February 6 -- Paul Kariya (3-0-3) scored three goals and Oleg Tverdovsky (1-1-2) beat Brian Boucher with 12.6 seconds remaining in Anaheim's 5-4 home win. When asked about the late goal, Boucher said "I saw him shoot the puck. It was just a floater shot. There were two guys in front (and) after those two guys went by, I lost the puck. When I saw it again, it went over me." It was Anaheim's sixth straight win. Philly led 2-1 after the first period and 4-2 with under 14 minutes to play but Kariya, in his 500th game, completed his hat trick at the 8:20 mark to even the score 4-4. Andy McDonald (0-3-3) had three points. Anaheim won for the first time this season when trailing after two periods (1-19-1-0). The Flyers dropped a game when scoring 3+ goals for the first time (29-1-4). Afterwards, Jeremy Roenick said "We didn't play physical. We weren't prepared to hold the lead. We're a first-place team, they're near the bottom of the league. For us to lose a two-goal lead like that is embarrassing. We took their team too lightly."
    • 2002 -- March 21 -- John LeClair scored on the rebound off a shot by Adam Oates with under eight minutes to play in the third period and the Flyers recorded a 2-1 home win. Oates, the NHL's leader in assists, made his Flyers' debut after being acquired two days earlier in a trade from Washington to help the Flyers' slumping powerplay and fill a void with injuries earlier in the week to top centers Keith Primeau and Jeremy Roenick. Simon Gagne tied the score with under four minutes left in the second period. Philly outshot the Ducks 23-16. Brian Boucher made 15 saves.
    • 2003 -- January 3 -- Robert Esche made 28 saves and Keith Primeau scored a first period PPG in a 1-0 win at Anaheim. Esche recorded his fifth career shutout and excelled throughout the night including saves off two turnovers by Kim Johnsson. After the game, Esche said with a smile "I had to remind him (Johnsson) who his teammates were out there a couple of times.'' The Flyers had four minors to one for Anaheim (the PPG) in the opening 13 minutes. The Ducks' PP was 0-for-7 including a failed 5-on-3 advantage when the Flyers were whistled for two minors in the first 3:31 of the game. Martin Gerber made 24 saves.
    • 2003 -- October 22 -- Rob Niedermeyer scored in OT and J.S. Giguere made 32 saves in Anaheim's 4-3 home win. Tony Amonte sent the game into OT with 0.6 seconds left in the third period, the latest goal in Flyers' history (later tied by Freddy Meyer, vs. Carolina, March 8, 2006). The Flyers outshot the Ducks 15-7 in the third period and 35-29 in the game. The Ducks led 2-0 less than six minutes into the contest. Keith Primeau received 11 PIMs in the first period including fighting Lance Ward.
    • 2005 -- July 29 -- Todd Fedoruk was traded to the Ducks for Anaheim's 2nd round choice (later traded to Phoenix - Phoenix selected Pier-Olivier Pelletier) in the 2005 Entry Draft.
    • 2006 -- November 13 -- Todd Fedoruk was traded to Philadelphia for the Flyers' 4th round choice (Justin Vaive) in the 2007 Entry Draft.
    • 2006 -- November 15 -- Robert Esche made 37 saves and the Flyers led 5-2 after the opening period in a shocking 7-4 win at Anaheim. The Flyers entered the game with the worst record in the East (3-12-2) while the Ducks owned the best record in the West (13-1-4). Philly snapped a six game losing streak (one point out of a possible 12) which tied a franchise-record. The Flyers were out-shot 41-16 including an incredible 27-4 over the last 40 minutes. Sami Kapanen (2-0-2), who scored twice, gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead at 1:48 but Chris Kunitz tied it 22 seconds later. The Flyers scored four times in a span of 5:10 in the latter half of the opening period to take a 5-1 lead. J.S. Giguere (6 saves, 11 shots) was replaced after the first period by Ilya Bryzgalov (3 saves, 5 shots). Anaheim closed to within 5-3 early in the second period but Alexandre Picard and Kapanen scored early in the third period to boost the lead to four goals. Five Flyers had two points apiece and Chris Pronger had two assists for Anaheim. Boyd Kane and Shane O'Brien had a brief scrap ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1yktN03j9g ). Philly was 3-for-6 on the PP. The disappointing Kyle Calder was a healthy scratch. Highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiPHCsE93uA

    • 2008 -- February 2 -- Mike Knuble recorded his first hat trick in 707 career games and Martin Biron made 27 saves for his 21st career shutout in the Flyers' 3-0 win in Philadelphia. Knuble also helped shut down Anaheim's top line (Todd Bertuzzi, Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry) and afterwards said "They're three great players and we kept them off the board." Knuble's second goal was scored with 10 seconds remaining in the second period. Six different Flyers picked up assists. The sizzling Flyers improved to 13-3-1 since Christmas but would win just one of the next 11 games. Anaheim lost for the sixth straight time and the Ducks' extended their scoreless stretch to 155:20. Highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhgaViEwd6g . Full game ( http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?id=2019 ).

    • 2009 -- January 2 -- Martin Biron made 27 saves and improved his career record against the Ducks to 8-0-0 and Mike Richards (0-3-3) scored the only shootout goal in Philly's 5-4 shootout win at Anaheim. Richards, who also had three assists, scored in the second round then Getzlaf failed on Anaheim's final attempt. The standing-room-only crowd of 17,597 was a Ducks' record. Early in the second period, Anaheim scored twice including the first NHL goal by Andrew Ebbett, to make it 3-1, on his 26th birthday. Josh Gratton started the Flyers comeback 16 seconds later. With 2:19 to play in the second period, Braydon Coburn scored a PPG but 52 seconds later was penalized leading to an eventual Ducks' PPG with 1:14 to play. Mike Knuble responded 14 seconds later to make it 4-4 after two periods, the third goal in 79 seconds. Scott Niedermayer played over 32 minutes. Sami Pahlsson and Getzlaf combined to win 32 of 47 faceoffs among the Ducks' 41-28 advantage. Getzlaf and Corey Perry each had a goal and an assist but both failed on shootout attempts. Late in the first period, Riley Cote and George Parros fought, eight seconds before Gratton and Steve Montador dueled. In the third period, Perry was issued a double-minor and eventually suspended four games for elbowing Claude Giroux. Game highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1BSjFyenNE
      [​IMG]
    • 2009 -- June 26 -- Chris Pronger, with one year left on his contract (the Flyers signed him to a multi-year pact in early July), and Ryan Dingle were traded to Philadelphia for Joffrey Lupul, Luca Sbisa, the Flyers' first round picks in 2009 (later traded to Columbus, selected John Moore) and 2010 (Emerson Etem) and a conditional pick. That pick would be either a 2010 or 2011 third-round selection which would have been sent to Montreal in exchange for the return of the Ducks' 2011 4th round pick (sent to the Canadiens in a deal involving Kyle Chipchura) but contingent on the Flyers winning the Stanley Cup in 2010.
    • 2009 -- October 10 -- Teemu Selanne scored twice in the third period and the only goal during the shootout leading Anaheim to a 3-2 win at Philly. Selanne snapped Ray Emery's (31 saves) shutout bid with with 6:44 remaining then sent the game to OT with 16 seconds to play. In the shootout, Danny Briere, Mike Richards and Simon Gagne failed while Selanne scored on the Ducks' second try. Jonas Hiller made 33 saves. Chris Pronger, who celebrated his 35th birthday, scored the second Flyers' PPG of the game to make it 2-0 and played 31:17 against his former team. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poXMpirS5W0

    2010-14:
    • 2010 -- October 21 -- Ryan Getzlaf scored with 1:46 left in the third period and Curtis McElhinney made 40 saves in Anaheim's 3-2 win at Philadelphia. Lubomir Visnovsky gave the Ducks a 1-0 lead in the opening minute. The game was tied 2-2 entering the third period. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fI1b06Nj7YU
      [​IMG]
    • 2010 -- November 21 -- The Flyers acquired Danny Syvret and Rob Bordson from Anaheim in exchange for Pat Maroon and David Laliberte.
    • 2010 -- December 31 -- Jason Blake (2-0-2) and Lubomir Visnovsky (2-0-2) each scored twice and Jonas Hiller made 35 saves in Anaheim's 5-2 home win. The Ducks led 3-0 at the game's midway point before goals by Andreas Nodl and Jeff Carter (1-1-2) closed the score to 3-2. However, Bobby Ryan scored an insurance goal less than two minutes after Carter's tally. Dan Carcillo fought Kyle Chipchura ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0PflIHTTG8 ).
    • 2011 -- December 2 -- Claude Giroux's PPG 3:29 into OT completed the Flyers' rally from a 3-0 deficit in a 4-3 win at Anaheim. Jaromir Jagr (2-1-3), who had the 116th two-goal game of his career, Scott Hartnell (1-1-2) and Giroux (1-1-2) scored and Kimmo Timonen (0-3-3) and Danny Briere (0-2-2) combined for five assists. Anaheim led 2-0 after the first period and extended the margin to three goals in the second period. Jagr, who missed four of the prior six games and was injured in the other two, scored consecutive PPGs, the first coming with 4:42 left in the second period and then 4:46 into the third period during a 5-on-3. Hartnell tied the score with 3:02 remaining in regulation. Jake Voracek was issued a minor penalty with 1:37 to play in the third period but Anaheim failed to score. Four seconds after exiting the penalty box, Voracek was tripped which led to an additional minor against the Ducks' Ryan Getzlaf for unsportsmanlike. The Flyers' PP was 3-for-9 while the Ducks finished 1-for-3. The Flyers held a 47-22 shots advantage including 21-5 covering the third period and OT. Jagr had 10 shots on goal and 17 of the Flyers' 18 skaters (exception being Max Talbot) registered at least one shot on goal. Jonas Hiller made 43 saves. The Flyers dressed seven rookies, Bruce Boudreau made his Ducks' coaching debut. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_c_CepsOmBM .
      [​IMG]
    • 2013 -- April 1 -- Harry Zolniercyk was traded to Anaheim for Jay Rosehill.
    • 2013 -- October 29 -- Kyle Palmieri (2-0-2) scored twice in the third period leading Anaheim to a 3-2 win in Philly. Jonas Hiller made 298 saves.

    Nice job, MSE.

    This will be a tough one; Anaheim has played well to start the season. They're deeper than they look and their young defensemen have played well.


    Edit: after watching the Ducks/Jackets highlights, I doubt Koivu will be in the lineup for Anaheim. He looked out of it after taking a Dubinsky elbow to the noggin (elbow looked down but connected flush with Koivu's head).

    Should be a tough one!
    The Ducks are a better team than the Rags or Isles at that point.

    Win this game and never look back!

    If they win this one, it'll be a big big boost going forward.

    Hopefully they win...I want to see what they have against upper echelon teams. They've had enough time with Berube to start piecing some more wins together.

    Meltzer pointed out a reassuring statistic in his most recent blog; that the flyers have given up only the 7th most goals in the league and the least in the metropolitan division (27). Although we've played a couple less games than other teams it's still a positive to look at moving forward. Berube seems to have them playing better team defense and the guys seem to want to play well for mason which is always good to see.

    If our forwards can find their game and Giroux, Voracek and Hartnell can get going now and give vinny some help with the offense, we could turn this thing around quick. They've looked steadily better with the puck and seem to be gaining confidence game by game. Let's hope it all comes to the surface tomorrow. Maybe G can get on the board finally.

    Yeah, I pointed that out on the main boards a couple of times. I've always said we're a very good team on paper. Fans outside Philly seem to think goaltending and D are the problems despite them not being the problems. Even fans in Philly seem to think the D is a problem for whatever reason despite us doing relatively well defensively.

    Prior to Berube our D was lacking but it's tightened up since then. Even with Laviolette our D was always good enough on paper. No elite guys or top-end guys but solid middle range D throughout the entire lineup. Just a nice middle of the pack D that is more defensively oriented then offensively. The problem will probably be later in the season when Streit and Timonen slow down, assuming they do.

    Really? Gus has been really solid in his own zone, has been breaking the puck out and getting shots through on goal from the blueline. While Mez was arguably the worst D man in over half the games he played.

    Gus is really starting to look like last year was no fluke, and he could step up and be either a #4 or a puck moving 5 who is defensively sound and can play on the second PP unit.

    Yea, I just looked at his #'s, he's played decent minutes, has 3 pts in 5 games.

    But he was skating with Gill today, usually means he's out.

    Considering this game will be our first and only legitimately good shot at a turnaround all season so far we need Mason in net. Especially considering Anaheim is a top offensive team.

    Apparently Berube was not happy with the way Gus played in the 3rd period on Sat. Seems like he has a short leash on some, yet Coburn, who a lot of people seem to think he's regressing, plays the most minutes, nightly.
