This Date In Flyers History: October 24
1991
On this date in 1991, Flyers captain Rick Tocchet was called for a roughing penalty at 5:31 of the first period of their game at Minnesota against the North Stars.

The penalty gave Tocchet 1,601 penalty minutes as a Flyer, moving past Paul Holmgren and into first place on the Flyers' All-Time List.
   
Tocchet would finish his Flyers career with 1,817 penalty minutes in 621 regular season games, which is still the most in Flyers history with Holmgren still ranking second at 1,600 PIMs.

Tocchet played for the Flyers for 11 seasons spanning from 1984-92 and again in 1999-02.

1999
On this date in 1999, John Vanbiesbrouck recorded his third consecutive shutout, a career first, and became only the fourth goaltender during the 1990’s to post three consecutive shutouts. He would not allow a goal in 227 minutes, 40 seconds (parts of five games, Oct. 17, 1999 through Oct. 26, 1999) to set a team record for one goalie and a personal best.
   
ALSO ON THIS DATE:
- The Flyers own an all-time record of 13-4-3-0.
- Rick MacLeish gets a hat trick in a 5-3 win over the Colorado Rockies (1976)
- Greg Paslawski earns a hat trick in a 7-6 loss vs. the Montreal Canadiens (1992)
