Grand Ol\' Time

The Philadelphia Flyers recorded the 1000th regular season home-ice win in franchise history tonight when they defeated the Montreal Canadiens 5-2 at the Wells Fargo Center.
 
"Having personally attended nearly every one of these glorious victories, it certainly is impressive to be the first NHL expansion team to reach 1,000 regular season home victories," said Comcast-Spectacor Chairman Ed Snider. "This achievement is a true testament to the many men who have put on the orange and black and proudly wore the Flyers famous logo for nearly 45 years. This milestone is representative of Flyers Hockey. We want our home to be a very tough place for our opponents to play."
 
"It's a remarkable achievement for Ed Snider and our organization," said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko. "In addition to the many who have skated for the Flyers over the years, a lot of credit for many of these wins goes to the most intimidating fans in hockey, our hard core Flyers fans. We are fortunate tonight to celebrate this accomplishment with them."
 
Tonight was the team’s 301st win at the Wells Fargo Center since its opening in 1996.  The Flyers won 696 games at the Spectrum from 1967 to 1996.  The other three wins came at Le Colisee de Quebec in Quebec City, Quebec, where the Flyers played five home games in the 1967-68 season due to roof damage at the Spectrum.
 
The Flyers become the first expansion-era team (outside the Original Six) to reach the milestone.  It comes against the Canadiens, who became the first team in NHL history to record 1,000 wins at home when they beat the Kansas City Scouts 4-1 on March 24, 1975.
 
With tonight’s win, the Flyers enter the All-Star break with a record of 33-12-5 for 71 points, which ranks as the third-best record in franchise history after 50 games behind the 1979-80 team (35-3-12, 82 points) and the 1985-86 squad (35-14-1, 71 points).
