This Date In Flyers History: October 7
On this date in Flyers history the Orange & Black own an all-time record of 6-4-1.

Of other significance was the 1982-83 Flyers squad which tied a franchise record in a 9-5 victory over the Quebec Nordiques on opening night at the Spectrum.

The Flyers and Nordiques were tied at 5-5 in the third period before the Flyers scored three goals in 35 seconds to put the game out of reach.

The three goals in 35 seconds tied the team record for fastest three goals in a game, which was set just three years earlier (Mar. 1, 1979 vs. Boston: Behn Wilson, 8:13 of 2nd period; Blake Dunlop, 8:28 of 2nd period; Al Hill, 8:48 of 2nd period).

Flyers Hall of Famer Brian Propp started the sequence when he scored a power play goal at 9:08 of the third period. Bill Barber followed Propp's tally with an even-strength goal at 9:31 and then Ray Allison followed with a goal just 12 seconds later (9:43).

The Flyers nearly came within reach of their record of fastest four goals in franchise history when Lindsay Carson scored the ninth Flyers goal (and 14th goal of the game) just 1:31 later at 11:14.

When all was said and done, the Flyers posted four unanswered goals within a span of 2:06 midway through the third period to get the team off to a 1-0-0 start on a season that would end with a 49-23-8 record, the most wins since the 1975-76 season.

ALSO ON THIS DATE: OCT. 7
- The Flyers took on their AHL affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms, at the Wachovia Spectrum in an exhibition game in 2008. The Phantoms recorded a 4-2 victory over the big club.

- Happy Birthdays go out to Alumni Andre Faust (LW, 1992-94) & current scout Ross Fitzpatrick (LW, 1982-86).
