I think the goalie switch was something that put a new spin on attempting the come back. You've got a guy whose thinking that he only needs to win 2 games to win a series. That's a lot less difficult than needing 4 in a row.
And what about Gagne coming back from injury to be the hero in game 4 and game 7?
And the Flyers being a shootout away from elimination?
And being denied of a Cup since the 70's?
The Flyers were the right choice hands down.
People don't make movies about a single dominant performance by a dominant player (even if he was helped by the Phillies' defense). People right movies about awe-inspiring comebacks made by teams fighting against all odds. The extra parts of the story help make the Flyers case. It isn't just one series vs. one pitching outing.
Even thinking for a second that it should be Halladay is kinda out there.
