Ron Hextall appeared in his 500th NHL game, which for goaltenders is an NHL Milestone. The Flyers dropped a 5-2 contest to the Washington Capitals.

Hextall posted a career record of 296-214-69 and a 2.97 goals-against average over his 13-year NHL career.

A member of the Flyers Hall of Fame, Hextall holds the Flyers record for wins (296) and games played as a goaltender (489).  Hextall was also the first goaltender to score a goal by shooting the puck into the opposing team's net. He is also one of two goaltenders (Martin Brodeur) to score in a postseason game.

During his rookie season, Hextall appeared in 66 regular season games, recording 37 wins and helped lead the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Final, where he won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He would eventually win the Vezina Trophy as the NHL's most outstanding goaltender.

The Flyers honor the memory of Pelle Lindbergh who was fatally injured in an automobile accident on November 10, 1985.

- The Flyers own an all-time 9-7-2-0 record

- In 1992, Kevin Dineen scored the game-winning goal 48 seconds into overtime to lead the Flyers to a 4-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens.
