Flyer Streak Snowballs to 16 Games

January 05, 1997|From Associated Press

Trent Klatt and Mikael Renberg scored goals two minutes apart in the third period as the Flyers rallied to tie the Avalanche, 4-4, Saturday night at Denver and extend the season's longest unbeaten streak in the NHL to 16 games.

Philadelphia trailed, 4-2, after two periods before coming back and improving to 13-0-3 in the streak.

Klatt reached out to deflect Chris Therien's slap shot past Avalanche goaltender Patrick Roy at 12:01 of the third period, and Renberg tied it with a point-blank rebound after he had redirected a shot by Eric Lindros onto the Colorado goal.
