Stat-Us Update: Gagne nets 500th career point, all with Flyers - MattP, The 700 Level
Before the Eagles drowned the city's sports fans of their enthusiasm, the Flyers (and Sixers) actually provided some positive wins. The Flyers took on the Tampa Bay Lightning, who will essentially be playing three games in three days, with the third coming this evening.
Simon Gagne's 500th career point, just days after teammate Danny Briere scored his 500th point, will be overshadowed in the sports headlines today, but it is worth mentioning.
Gagne has only played with the Flyers and when healthy gives the Flyers a goal scorer on any given line. With all of the injuries he has dealt with the 500th point should have come a long time ago, but it is still a remarkable feat. Congratulations to Gagne.
