The 2000–01 Philadelphia Flyers season was the Philadelphia Flyers' 34th season in the National Hockey League (NHL). The Flyers lost in the first round to the Buffalo Sabres in six games.

Off-season[edit]

Craig Ramsay retained the head coaching position as Roger Neilson was not asked to return, which became a matter of some controversy.[2]

Regular season[edit]

Without Eric Lindros, who sat out the entire season awaiting a trade, while also suffering through John LeClair's 66-game absence and Brian Boucher's early erratic play in goal, the club went into an early tailspin. The team began the year 3–6–4 and at one point had six regulars out of the lineup. Keith Jones, who never fully recovered from the prior knee problems despite surgery last season, was forced to retire eight games into the schedule.

Not wanting to bank on the inexperience of Maxime Ouellet, the team recalled Roman Cechmanek, a former star goalie in the Czech Republic, from the Philadelphia Phantoms in early November and the move paid off as he recorded a pair of shutouts in his first three games. The Flyers won six in a row prior to Thanksgiving to climb above .500, but Ramsay's inability to rally the troops cost him his job. After being badly outplayed in early December losses to Ottawa (5–3) and Detroit (5–1), he was replaced by former Flyer great Bill Barber with the team sinking at 12–12–4.[3]

Barber's high-energy, old-time hockey approach struck a chord, and the club went unbeaten in his first eight games behind the bench (5–0–3). Philly ran off an 8–2–1 stretch at the turn of the new year, then after a five-game win streak after the All-Star break found themselves atop the Atlantic Division.

Unfortunately, injuries and poor play followed. Simon Gagne was lost with a shoulder injury in a scoreless tie with the Tampa Bay Lightning in late February. In the middle of a 1–4–1 stretch in late March, Keith Primeau suffered a leg injury and missed the rest of the regular season. Despite faltering down the stretch, the Flyers finished with the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Primeau led the team with 34 goals and Mark Recchi posted team-best 50 assists and 77 points. Dan McGillis and Eric Desjardins formed a potent offensive duo on the back line, combining for 29 goals and 97 points. Cechmanek recorded a franchise rookie record 10 shutouts and finished second in voting for the Vezina Trophy.[4]

The Flyers were the most disciplined team in the League, with just 314 power-play opportunities against.[5]
