Before the Flyers, only two teams in the NHL’s history had completed a comeback from a 3-0 series deficit. The Toronto Maple Leafs did it in 1942 and the New York Islanders achieved the feat in 1975. The Flyers completed theirs in the hardest way possible.
After rallying to force a game seven back at TD Garden, the Flyers were looking to complete a task that many hadn’t done before. But then they went down three goals in the first period. Michael Ryder scored a power-play goal to get Boston on the board first just under five and a half in.
