Philly Sports Classics

For September 2014, go back in time to January 11th, 1976, for ”Broad St. Bullies vs. Big Red Machine.”

Host Neil Hartman and guest Al Morganti take a look at the 1976 Flyers vs. Soviet Red Army game, notable for both the tense political climate at the time, as well as an incident where, following a brutal check delivered by the Flyers' Ed Van Impe to the Soviet team’s top player, prompted the Red Army coach to pull his team off the ice in protest...only to be ordered back to finish the game by Flyers' Chairman Ed Snider, or risk forfeiting their fee.  The Soviet team eventually complied and lost 4-1 to the Flyers.
