Eastern Conference Semi-Finals: Philadelphia Flyers vs. Boston Bruins
The Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins have had some pretty significant postseason meetings. They first met in 1974 in the Stanley Cup Finals, with Philadelphia becoming the first expansion team to claim Lord Stanley as their own.
Last year in the Eastern Conference Semifinals Boston raced out to a 3-0 series lead, only to have the Flyers roar back to win the next four. The comeback from 0-3 down was just the third time in NHL history that it had occurred, and the first time in 35 years.
All history aside in this rivalry, this season is yet another very evenly-matched encounter. Expect a long, tough, physical series, as both teams thrive on taking the body and wearing down their opponents.
