This Week in Flyers' History: Week Ending April 6th

The Flyers blew a 3-goal lead and lost to the Penguins in Pittsburgh, 5-4. No, this was not an April Fools’ joke.

Orr says fighting should stay

Bobby Orr wasn't known as a fighter during his all too brief domination of the NHL. He was, however, unafraid to drop the gloves if need be. He also played on a team and in an era when players were willing and allowed to take care of problems with their own hands -- usually quite literally.
