The last time the Flyers played in Game 7 was on April 25th, 2011 against the Buffalo Sabres. The won game 6 a day earlier on Ville Leino's game-winning goal in overtime. To force Game 7, the Flyers needed to overcome deficits of 2-0, 3-1 and 4-3 en route to the 5-4 win.
The first period didn't get started as fast as they'd hoped but the Flyers got on the board on Braydon Coburn's wrist-shot from the point. The Flyers would carry that momentum over to the second period where they would make it 2-0 just 4:45 into the period thanks to Danny Briere. Minutes later, Claude Giroux would net a power play goal for the Flyers to make it 3-0. And that's all they'd need.
