OffseasonEdit

Regular seasonEdit

On September 20, 2001, in the middle of a 2-2 game between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers, the game was stopped. A message from United States President George W. Bush about the 9/11 attacks was broadcast on the arena video screen. After the message, the game did not resume and it was declared a 2-2 tie.[1]
