Flyers captain Claude Giroux tied Bill Barber’s career point total of 883 points with his 11th goal and team-leading 25th point of the season at 4:19 of the first.
“What a great career he had,” Giroux said of Barber. “To be able to tie him right now is obviously a great honor.”
Oskar Lindblom set up Giroux with a backhanded pass from behind the net, and Giroux finished with a wrister from the slot that Forsberg never saw.
“I knew he was there, but I was still guessing a little bit where he was,” Lindblom said. “He doesn’t miss those. It hit his tape and so that’s a goal.”
Bobby Clarke is the Flyers’ all-time leader in points with 1,210.
