while serving as team captain
enter the third overtime in their legendary playoff game
Bonus jersey: Today's bonus jersey is a 1975-76 Atlanta Flames Bill Clement jersey. This is the road red version of today's home white featured jersey. Like the home white jersey, this road red jersey was unchanged for the Flames entire run in Atlanta.
Extra bonus jersey: Today's extra bonus jersey is a 1973-74 Philadelphia Flyers Bill Clement jersey as worn by Clement the year the Flyers won the Stanley Cup for the first time.
The Flyers introduced this jersey style for their inaugural 1967-68 season with one color numbers and no names. The numbers gained a black outline in 1970-71 and the names on the back of the home white jerseys arrived in 1972-73. The sleeve stripes were widened in 1978-79 so the arm numbers fit completely inside. For the final season for this style, the waist stripe was removed for the 1981-82 season when the team wore the full length Cooperall pants. For the second and final season of the Cooperalls, the jersey was heavily updated, primarily with the addition of black trim separating the sleeve stripes from the main body color and now a black waist stripe rather than the previous orange, ending the 15 year long run of their original jersey.
The orange version of this jersey was brought back as a throwback alternate in 2008-09, complete with the white nameplates once used for games on TV when the Flyers chose not to make a separate home and away set of nameplates and simply affixed the home white plates to their road orange jerseys.
The white version was brought back for the 2010 NHL Winter Classic only now with black nameplates, the same season the orange version replaced their then black primary home jersey.
The Winter Classic white jersey then became the team's primary road jersey for the 2010-11 jersey, making for a full return to the Flyers 1970-71 look, only now with names on the back with both utilizing the contrasting nameplate retro look.
