Single Digits (April 17)

A half-dozen quick stats that caught our attention recently ...

♦ Over the past 38 seasons, the Flyers have the best regular season record in the NHL, but nary a Stanely Cup to show for it.

♦ New Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald this season blocked more shots (242) than anyone else in the NHL ... or the NBA. Oklahoma City’s Serge Ibaka finished with 219 to lead the hoopsters.

♦ Over the Flyers’ eight straight losses in Madison Square Garden, Claude Giroux has played 173 minutes and 21 seconds ... and has no goals.

♦ Flyers have won their last five playoff games at MSG.

♦ In two of Cliff Lee’s last five starts (dating to last season), he has suffered a 1-0, complete-game loss to the Braves ... twice!!! ... Robin Roberts is the Phillies’ all-time leader in complete-game losses with 63.

♦ Through Wednesday, the Braves have as many home runs at Citizens Bank Park this season (6) as the Phillies do.
