1969 - Kate Smith's rendition of "God Bless America" was played at the Philadelphia Spectrum for the first time, and the Flyers responded with a 6-3 win over Toronto. The Flyers' record when "God Bless America" is played or sung in person stands at a remarkable 94 wins, 26 losses, and 4 ties as of April 26, 2011. Smith and her song remain a special part of Flyers' history. In 1987, the team erected a statue of Smith outside their arena at the time, the Spectrum, in her memory.
