This Date In Flyers History...May 7
May 7, 2000...Flyers Defeat Penguins, 6-3

Andy Delmore was the first defenseman in Flyers history to record a hat trick in a playoff game.


On this date in 2000, the Flyers defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins in the First Union Center, 6-3, in Game Five of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series.

The Flyers would open up the game by scoring the first four goals and would have a 4-0 second-period lead on goals by Daymond Langkow, Andy Delmore, Dan McGillis and Mark Recchi. The Penguins would score three goals in the game, but were never able to cut the Flyers lead to less than three goals.

Delmore would score the final two Flyers goals of the game to post a hat trick. He became the first NHL rookie defenseman to record a hat trick in a playoff game and tied the NHL record for most goals in a playoff game by a defenseman. Delmore also became the first NHL rookie defenseman to have two multiple-goal games in a playoff year (he had scored two goals in Game Three of this series). He was the first defenseman in Flyers history to record a hat trick in a playoff game.

In addition to the records set by Delmore in the game, Recchi tied the team record for most points in a playoff game with five (1G,4A).
