By the thinking on here you'd believe that the Leafs would have won that game and series.

(Not applicable on Lindros/Stevens encounter )
It had NO affect on either team until the game was over. Half the players on the ice in the Flyers defensive zone didn't know how bad it was. JR didn't have time to say "OMG, Kappy just got killed, I'm gonna make them pay for that, THUNDER CATS HOOOO". As soon as we got control of the puck in our zone after that hit JR scored on the RUSH. It had nothing to do with the team being "inspired" by Kappy's sacrafice.

Hell, to give you an idea of just how unconcerned the team was for Kappy that immediately after the goal the ENTIRE team jumped on the ice and mugged JR EXCEPT for our captain KP. Only Keith stayed with Kappy, ALL the rest were more happy with JR scoring than they were concerned for Kappy being injured.
