Today in Philly Sports History: The Flyers Defeat Russia at the Spectrum

Jan 11, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

The Soviet Red Army playing the Flyers at the Spectrum is an intergral part of Flyers' lore, but for most readers of this site it happened long before we were born. The Soviets left the ice while playing the Flyers in Philly exactly 35 years ago today. Read more about the wild incident at the Flyers website. Anyone actually have their own memories from this one?
