Shoebox Memories: Lindsay Carson

Today I went to my shoebox of hockey cards and drew card #261 of 1983-84 OPC set, Lindsay Carson of the Philadelphia Flyers.

Carson was a good skater and a pop-gun scorer buried on the third and fourth line of the Flyers in the 1980s. In junior he was a scoring star, but not so much in the NHL. He scored 66 goals in his 373 game career, including seasons of 18 and 20 goals.

The game I best remember Lindsay Carson in was against Vancouver in late 1984. The Flyers were making their annual Christmas trip out west, visiting the Canucks on December 28th. The Flyers won, they always win in Vancouver. Carson was the difference on this night, scoring 3 goals in a 7-4 win.
