February 28, 1990...Flyers and Canucks Skate To 7-7 Tie


                      Pelle Eklund
On this date in 1990, the Flyers and Canucks skated to a 7-7 tie in Vancouver.

Vancouver jumped out to an early 2-0 first-period lead, before the Flyers scored the next three goals of the game. Three more goals were scored in the first period, two by the Flyers, to give the Flyers a 5-3 lead entering the first intermission.

The Canucks scored four second-period goals before Pelle Eklund closed out the second-period scoring with a goal at 19:18 to cut the Flyers' deficit to one goal, 7-6, as the two teams entered the second intermission.

Tim Kerr's goal in the final minute of regulation, at 19:29, tied the game at 7-7. A scoreless overtime left the game as a 7-7 tie.

Kerr (2G), Ilkka Sinisalo (2G), Keith Acton (1G) and Eklund (2G) were the Flyers' goalscorers. Eklund (2G,1A) and defenseman Jiri Latal (3A) led the Flyers with three points each.

Trevor Linden led the Canucks with two goals and an assist in the contest.

The 7-7 tie is the highest scoring tie in Flyers history. The eight first-period goals was one short of the Flyers' team record for most goals in a period by both teams.
