There are moments that a sports fan will never forget, this win and series versus the Bruins is one of those moments. Only two teams have ever forced a game 7 and won a series after being down 0-3 in a series, that number moved to three with a Flyers' Victory.
The Flyers have literally come back from the dead in this series, and from against all odds have forced a game 7.
According to Amy Fadool, of CSNphilly.com there are only three pro sports teams in history to come back from an 0-3 deficit, the last one to do so was the Boston Red Sox ... Boston may now be on the other end of it.
I will continue to say it, the Flyers must take one game at a time, game 7 is not a guaranteed win, especially in Boston.
The Flyers two big offensive weapons this series pulled through again for the team, as Captain Mike Richards and Danny Briere scored the Flyers two goals. The Flyers goaltender, Michael Leighton, allowed one goal with one minute left in the game ..... then the Flyers played strong defense and ended it; sending the series back to Boston.
Peter Laviolette talked after the game about game 7, he said "Our game will have to be better in Boston than it was tonight".
It is time to believe in this team. They have strong leaders and a strong head coach. This team could pull off the biggest series win in Sports History. They have done the impossible already, but the War is not over yet. They Flyers have to play one more against the Bruins in Boston Friday at 7 ..... once again a must win for the Flyers.
The winner on Friday will play the Montreal Canadiens, who defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins in 7 Games, in the Eastern Conference Finals. Both Boston and the Flyers would have home ice advantage in that series.
LETS GO FLYERS ! ONE GAME AT A TIME !
Teams that lost after being up 3-0: 1942 Red Wings. 1975 Penguins. 2004 Yankees. Coming Friday: 2010 Bruins
