Flyers Alumni History

Flyers chairman Ed Snider brought hockey back to Philadelphia in 1967 and a love affair between city and team was born. One of six expansion teams, the Flyers not only won their division in their first season, but eventually became the first expansion team to win the Stanley Cup in 1974.

The Flyers Alumni Association (a 501(c)(3) organization) was originally named the Philadelphia Legends. The Association was created in 1984 and continues to grow with membership consisting of national and global former Philadelphia Flyers players.  The Alumni can be found playing games around the world and participating in other charitable projects throughout the year. 

 

Through the years, the Flyers Alumni Association has maintained a tradition of giving back to the Delaware Valley community. Charities and community organizations that have been supported in the past include St. John's Hospice, Ronald McDonald House, March of Dimes South Jersey and Junior Achievement of Delaware.

TODAY IN FLYERS HISTORY: APRIL 25

1976: Concluding a playoff series that sees the home team win every game, the Flyers take the seventh and deciding game of the Stanley Cup quarterfinals with a 7-3 blowout win at the Spectrum over the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Flyers trail 2-1 at the first intermission before exploding for five unanswered goals in the second period, including a pair by rookie center Mel Bridgman.
 
1996: The Flyers grab a three games to two lead in their fight-filled Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series with the Tampa Bay Lightning, capturing a 4-1 win at the Spectrum. Mikael Renberg, Shjon Podein, Pat Falloon and John LeClair score the goals. The Flyers survive a nine-minute shorthanded situation in the third period after Shawn Antoski received a match penalty and series of other penalties for allegedly attempting to kick a Tampa player in a scrum. Ron Hextall (23 saves) flirts with a shutout until John Cullen scores an otherwise meaningless goal with 2:01 left in the game.
 
 
2004: The Flyers earn a 2-1 home win over the Toronto Maple Leafs to the take a two games to zero lead in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Alexei Zhamnov scores the game-winner midway through the third period after tough guys Donald Brashear and Tie Domi trade off goals for their respective teams in the first and second periods. Robert Esche stops stops 26 of 27 shots. The Flyers power play goes 2-for-4 and the penalty kill goes 5-for-5.
 
2014: The Flyers knot their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series with the New York Rangers at two games apiece. Steve Mason plays brilliantly in goal, stopping 37 of 38 Rangers shots. After Matt Read replies to an early goal by New York's Dominic Moore, Jakub Voracek nets the game-winner with a second-period power play goal.
