With Rod Brind'Amour being inducted to the Flyers Hall of Fame, take a look back on some of the top highlights of his Flyers career. Vote for your favorite below, and be sure to join us for his ceremony tomorrow night where his top highlight will be revealed!
Highlight 1 - April 26, 1997
On consecutive shorthanded rushes, banks pucks off Pittsburgh defensemen Jason Wooley and Fredrik Olausson and past Ken Wregget to bring the Flyers from behind a 2-1 first period deficit to a 3-2 lead on the way to 6-3 victory that gives them their first-round series in five games. The two goals in 54 seconds are the second fastest ever scored by one player in Flyer playoff history and tie an NHL record for the most shorthanded goals by an individual in one game.
Highlight 2 - May 25, 1997 Scores the first-period lead goal (backhander between Mike Richter’s legs to finish a two-on-one with John LeClair) and the third-period insurance goal (rebound of Chris Therien point drive after winning an offensive zone draw from Mike Eastwood) -- during the Flyers’ Game 5, 4-2, Eastern Conference final-clinching victory over the Rangers.
Highlight 3 - June 10, 1995 Picks off a pass by Shawn Chambers just inside the Philadelphia line and solos to beat Marty Brodeur’s poke check for a shorthanded goal that gives the Flyers a 3-1 third-period lead on the way to a 4-2 Meadowlands victory that evens the series with the Devils at 2-2.
Highlight 4 - May 20, 1997 Comes off the bench, takes a breakaway bank pass by Therien and beats Richter cleanly with 3:08 to play to boost the Flyers lead to 5-3 en route to a 6-3 Madison Square Garden victory and a 2-1 lead of the Eastern Conference final.
Highlight 5 - November 3, 1997 Set up by Vinny Prospal at the post, waits, fakes, and goes over flopping Hall of Famer Grant Fuhr for probably the prettiest goal of Brind’Amour’s 235 as a Flyer to open scoring in a 5-1 win at St. Louis.
