The Philadelphia Flyers suffer their first loss since October 13th, as they are slammed by the Minnesota North Stars 7-1 at the Met Center. The Flyers came into the game with a 35-game unbeaten streak, winning 25 games with ten ties over that period. Philadelphia scored first as Bill Barber netted a goal at 3:49 of the first period. The North Stars finished the game with seven unanswered goals to hand the Flyers their second loss. The 35-game unbeaten streak remains an NHL record unlikely to be broken.
