Flyers-Canadiens: The season so far

Posted: May 15, 2010

As the Flyers prepare to host the Montreal Canadiens in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final on Sunday, here is how the teams fared against each other during the regular season, during which they split four games, 2-2 (Home team in CAPS):

Dec. 7, MONTREAL 2, Flyers 1: In coach Peter Laviolette's second game since replacing John Stevens, the Flyers equaled a dubious franchise record with just 13 shots on goal. Game-winning goal: Michael Cammalleri. Winning goalie: Carey Price. Losing goalie: Brian Boucher.

Feb. 12, FLYERS 3, Montreal 2: Jeff Carter scored twice as the Flyers, up 3-0 heading into the third period, held off the Canadiens. It was their first win at the Wachovia Center over Montreal since 2006. Game-winning goal: Matt Carle. Winning goalie: Michael Leighton. Losing goalie: Price.

Feb. 13, Flyers 6, MONTREAL 2: Danny Briere had a hat trick as the Flyers entered the Olympic break with one of their best performances of the year. Expect Briere to be the least-popular Flyer in this series. Montreal fans have never forgiven him since he decided to sign with the Flyers in 2007 and not his hometown Canadiens. Game-winning goal: Carter. Winning goalie: Leighton. Losing goalie: Price.

April 2, Montreal 1, FLYERS 0: Canadiens goalie Jaroslav Halak made 35 saves as Montreal got a much-needed win. "If we get into the playoffs, it's a huge win. But if not, it's just a regular win," Halak said afterward. "We'll see how important a win it was in about a week from now." Game-winning goal: Tomas Plekanec. Winning goalie: Halak. Losing goalie: Boucher.
