October 18th, 1967 - Flyers First Ever Win

Glenn Hall cold in fireman role as Philly Flyers down Blues 2-1

 ST.LOUIS (UPI) - Lou Angotti and Ed Hoekstra scored on goalie Glenn Hall last night to give Philadelphia Flyers a 2-1 win over St.Louis Blues in a National Hockey League game.
 The win was Philadelphia's first of the season in three games.
 The only St.Louis score was Fred Hucul's slap shot in the second period.
 Hall, making his first appearance as a member of the Blues, entered the game at the beginning of the second period and allowed both goals.
 Hall, who played two years with the Detroit Red Wings and 10 years with Chicago Black Hawks in his NHL career, had been on the sidelines with an infected hand. Martin was forced to leave the game with a deep shoulder bruise from being hit by a shot by Leon Rochefort.
 Hoekstra hooked the puck in a scramble about 12 feet in front of the St.Louis net and scored with seven minutes, 20 seconds remaining in the game. Rochefort and Bill Sutherland were credited with the assists.
