Starting netminder Brian Boucher (nine saves) sprained his MCL (left knee) and was replaced by Michael Leighton (14 saves) with 15:25 left in the second period. Boucher, who suffered the injury during a pile-up in the crease, did not play the remainder of the POs. Leighton, who last played March 16 due to a high ankle injury, made his NHL PO debut. Ville Leino scored the GWG at the 6:41 mark. Scott Hartnell made it 2-0. Simon Gagne (2-0-2) finished the scoring with two goals. Philly was 1-for-9 on PPs and Boston was 0-for-2. The Flyers became the 11th team (162 tries) in NHL history to force a Game 6 after trailing a series 3 games to 0. Chris Pronger, who was the number one star for the second straight game and who led all skaters with 27:44 of ice-time, said of the series "It obviously feels a little different now." Game highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogRFo...eature=channel

  • May 12, 2010 -- In Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semis at Philly, the Flyers became the sixth team in NHL history to even a series after trailing 3 games to 0 with a 2-1 win. Mike Richards (1-1-2) scored 6:58 into the game, Danny Briere added a PPG with 3:40 left in the second period and Michael Leighton made 30 saves. Kimmo Timonen played a game-high 28:21. Tukka Rask made 25 saves including a glove-save on Ville Leino's penalty shot attempt, the eighth in team PO history, with 7:21 to play in the final period. Milan Lucic scored Boston's only goal with a minute left which snapped Leighton's shutout streak at 134:12. At one point, injured Brian Boucher acknowledged a deafening ovation from the home crowd ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKld4wXyz3E ). The last team to win three straight games in a series following three consecutive defeats was the New York Islanders in 1975 (vs. Philadelphia). Game highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBhuvkCeU5k

  • May 14, 2010 -- In Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semis at Boston, the Flyers completed one of the most astonishing comebacks in the history of organized sports by rallying from a 3-0 deficit in the series and in this game to earn a stunning 4-3 win. Simon Gagne's GWG with 7:08 remaining came during a bench minor penalty (too many men on the ice) to Boston issued when Marc Savard skated towards the bench and teammate Vladimir Sobotka skated onto the ice. Boston coach Claude Julien said " A player (Savard) waved for a change then changed his mind... they're (refs) calling them (such penalties) through the whole playoffs." Milan Lucic, the game's #2 star, stated "I saw two centermen out there and I said 'What is going on?'" The Bruins led 3-0 at the 14:10 mark aided by two PPGs and a pair of goals by Lucic. Soon thereafter, Flyers' head coach Peter Laviolette called a timeout. Boston held a 14-8 shots advantage after the opening period but the momentum began to change when Flyers' rookie JVR scored with 2:48 left in the first. That goal was the first of nine consecutive shots which carried into the second period. Scott Hartnell (1-1-2) and Danny Briere (1-1-2) added second period goals and the scored was even 8:39 into the middle period. The Flyers outshot Boston 19-11 over the last two periods and 27-25 overall. Michael Leighton made 22 saves and Chris Pronger played a game-high 31:42. The Flyers joined the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs and the 1975 New York Islanders as the only NHL teams to comeback from a 3-0 deficit in a series. Laviolette said "It's a game made for men and our guys proved to be men." Game highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2ZtT88rUl0 Series recap: Leading Scorers -- For Philadelphia: Daniel Briere (5-5-10), Mike Richards (3-6-9), Ville Leino (2-5-7) and Simon Gagne (4-1-5).
