This week’s Hockey Happy Hour on NBCSN (5-7 p.m. ET) will feature memorable “on this date” games in playoff history.
After rallying from a 3-0 series deficit to force a Game 7, the Flyers found themselves down 3-0 against the Bruins in that winner-take-all contest. Philadelphia responded with four unanswered goals, capped by Simon Gagne’s series-clinching tally in the 3rd period, to advance to the Eastern Conference Final. The Flyers became just the third team in NHL history at the time to win a series after trailing 3-0.
Joe Beninati, Billy Jaffe and Bob Harwood had the call from TD Garden in Boston, Ma.
