Background: Philadelphia Flyers' veteran 32-year old Terry Crisp scored two goals and the 200th of his career, to help his team to a 4-2 win over Toronto Maple Leafs in the National Hockey League match in Philadelphia on Sunday (21 March).
Players from both teams were involved in an all-in brawl at the end of the first period, after Ian Turnbull scored to put the Maple Leafs in front. Four players, two from each team, were ordered off as a result of the melee.
In the second period, Flyers' Bill Barber put in another goal to tie the score, then Crisp hit in a long 30-foot (9 metres) shot to goal to put Philadelphia in the lead after 40 minutes of play.
Late in the final period Crisp scored again, his 200th goal of his career, to give his team a 3-1 lead.
A minute later, Turnbull shot for goal from 60 feet (19 meters) to bring Toronto Maple Leafs within a goal of Philadelphia.
But with only seconds of the game left, Barber got a loose puck and raced up the rink to shoot into an empty goal to give the Flyers' the 4-2 win.
The victory for Philadelphia tied the National Hockey League record of 33 for the most wins at home in a season.
