This Date in Flyers History

March 2, 1993:  The Philadelphia Flyers topped the juggernaut Pittsburgh Penguins by a 5-4 score at the Spectrum.

Rod Brind'Amour had a goal and two assists, while defenseman Garry Galley picked up the game-winner on a power play with 3:33 left in regulation.

The game was most memorable for the antithesis of Philadelphia fan behavior, however, as Mario Lemieux was welcomed back after treatments for Hodgkins Disease with a five-minute standing ovation prior to the contest, as well as significant cheering when he scored his 40th goal of the season early in the second period.
