Philadelphia loves a come back story ... especially one that deals with the Flyers coming back down 0-3 in the series against Boston and winning. Didn't hear about it? Need I remind you!
Every Flyers fan will remember where they were when the Flyers came back down 0-3 in the series to come back and win the series.
Game 7 tells the story of this series against the Bruins ...... Boston races out to a 3-0 lead, but the Flyers slowly chip back by stealing a goal at the end of the first to cut the lead to 3-1. Then The Flyers explode in the second period with two more goals to tie the game 3-3.
3-3, hmm that sound familiar. The series and game was tied 3-3 in the third period, then your star and game changer, Simon Gagne, put it past Rask for the lead and ultimately the win for the Flyers!
They did it! They made history tonight! The Flyers are the third team in NHL history and fourth team in Professional Sports history to come back down 0-3 to win the series. The last team to do it was the Red Sox in 2004 against the Yankees, that team won the World Series.
Can you believe it?
After the game, Coach Peter Laviolette said, "Games 7's are made for men and those are men in there".
The Flyers fought back and beat the Bruins in historical fashion. This series epitomized Philadelphia Sports in 2010.
The Comeback as one may say, sums up 2010 Philly Sports in just that .... a comeback.
Whether it was the Flyers over the Bruins, the Eagles over the Giants, the Union over Toronto, or the Comeback of Doug Collins and the 76ers or even the Comeback of Cliff Lee with the Philadelphia Phillies ..... 2010 can be described by only one word: Comeback.
