Emery Rolls a 1-0

Ray Emery on Saturday became the 13th Flyer goaltender to record a 1-0 victory. It was the 27th 1-0 win in franchise history (regular season and postseason).


Pelle Lindbergh's only 1-0 win was in a playoff game over the Islanders (April 28, 1985), a series-clinching Game 5.

Ilya Bryzgalov's two 1-0 wins came over the course of seven days (March 4 and 10, 2012).

Bernie Parent's seven 1-0 victories were spread over 10 years (Dec. 16, 1967 to Oct. 10, 1977).

Doug Favell recorded the first 1-0 win in Flyers' history in the franchise's fourth game ever and its first home game (Oct. 19, 1967).

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
