82 Days until the start of the 2012-2013 NHL season!!!! I couldn’t make it without the NHLNetwork!!! Yesterday, I was going through hockey withdrawals when I scanned the Directv menu on the NHLNetwork and found them airing, “History of the Philadelphia Flyers – 40th Anniversary Edition”. Ahhhh!!!! Something to soothe my hockey sweet tooth until October 11th when the 2012-2013 NHL season begins – Flyers are paired against the Boston Bruins.
It always good to review the 40 year highlights of the Flyers, this film came out in 2007 which honored the 40th year as an expansion team in the league. All the highlight moments were great to remember but my favorite was the 5 over time period Stanley Cup Playoff game in 2000 between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers.
I remember watching this game at the time and then also regret not having recorded at least the final 3 overtime periods!!! For those who never watched the game, here is the final 2:38 of the game.
82 Days is practically almost an ETERNITY for a hockey fan…I’m crossing off the days on the calendar starting today!!!
