TAKING A LOOK AT THE DANGEROUS CAREER OF FLYERS DAVE POULIN (RARE FOOTAGE INCLUDED)

SEP 22, 2022  (18H34)      SKY
Dave Poulin had an enormous task: replacing Bobby Clarke as captain of the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers probably couldn't have found a better man for the job.

With Poulin as captain, the team made it to the Finals twice in three seasons only to fall to the Edmonton Oilers each time.


Poulin played through numerous injuries and it seemed each time he returned to the lineup, whether with broken ribs or a broken foot, he'd score a clutch goal. None probably more memorable than his two-man shorthanded goal in the clinching game of the 1985 Wales Conference Finals against Quebec. Scored, by the way, by Poulin wearing a flak jacket to protect his broken ribs.
