Alexander Ovechkin scored his 30th goal of the season in the first period of Sunday's game against St. Louis. It was very significant goal. It marked the 10th time in his first 10 seasons in which Ovechkin has reached the 30 goal plateau. He is only the fifth player in NHL history to do so.
February 1, 1968 is the birth date of one of the more popular and successful Flyers in its history. A hard working winger with a lighting fast wrist shot, his 123 points as a Flyer in the 1992-93 season is still a team record to this day.
Michael Del Zotto scored his fifth of the season. The Flyers killed a late penalty in the third. Steve Mason made 30 saves and the Flyers won their fourth consecutive game as they defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 1-0 Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
