On May 14th, 2010, the Flyers had fought back from a 3-0 series deficit to the Boston Bruins to tie it 3-3 and force Game 7 in Boston. Game 7 did not get off to the kind of start the Flyers had envisioned as they fell behind 3-0 in the first period when head coach Peter Laviolette called his timeout to encourage the Flyers that they only needed one goal to get back in the game.
They delivered. James van Riemsdyk got the Flyers on the board on a wrist-shot that was slowed down and redirected into the net to make it 3-1 through the first period. Scott Hartnell made it 3-2 early in the second period on a beautiful backhand shot. The Flyers would tie it up on Danny Briere's wraparound goal in the second period.
The third period went back and forth before the Bruins were called for Too Many Men on the Ice with under 10 minutes remaining and sent the Flyers on the power play. Mike Richards had his shot blocked in front but Simon Gagne was there to rip a wrist-shot top shelf over Tuukka Rask to give the Flyers a 4-3 lead with 7:08 remaining.
The Wells Fargo center (then called "Wachovia Center") had a watch party and the cameras loved the Whiz Wit guys. There's this picture after the first goal and then this one after the second. Don't worry they got us when it counted.
I still get chills and the NHL commercial still gets me.
