The bad blood between the Flyers and Ottawa Senators was still fresh from a game just eight days earlier, so when the teams met on March 5, 2004, it would become a historic night in a very different way.
A fortunate goal got the score even and somehow the game was tied after one period. From there, the Flyers played the dominant forechecking game they have proven to be capable of and actually kept the game in their favor for some time. They got the game to overtime, earned a solid point in the standings, before falling in a marathon shootout that went 11 rounds in a 4-3 defeat to Toronto.
In the 11th round of a marathon shootout, Andreas Johnsson managed to beat Brian Elliott for the deciding goal, as the Flyers dropped a hard-fought contest, 4-3, to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night at Wells Fargo Center.
