Bernie Parent Turns 70: A Tribute to a Flyers' Legend

The entire history of the Philadelphia Flyers would have been different without Bernie Parent. It is extremely unlikely that they would have won either of their two Stanley Cups without him. Parent was not only the greatest goaltender in franchise history; he was one of the best to ever grace a National Hockey League crease. 
 
Beloved by fans and teammates alike, Parent's gentle spirit and good humor off the ice were only surpassed by his incandescent brilliance between the pipes. Parent gave the Broad Street Bullies the confidence to become the marauders of the NHL, knowing that the goalie would get them through whatever shorthanded situations their antics created. 
 
Bernie Parent could steal a game against a more talented team and he could slam the door with the slimmest of leads. Parent was not only a crucial figure during his two stints as a player on the club, he was also an excellent goaltending coach in the 1980s.
