Reggie Leach's goal against Toronto in 1977 finished what may be the most definitive game of that era (minus Cup Finals' games). Probably my favorite Flyers' game of all-time (again, with the exceptions of Finals' games). Greatest comeback in team history.

Dave Schultz's goal in 1974 against Atlanta. What a finish by Schultz after a legendary fight earlier in the game. A comeback that was as impressive, too.

Andy Delmore's goal against Pittsburgh in 2000.

Murray Craven's goal in 1988 against Washington finished maybe the second most impressive comeback in team history. The rest of that series was disgusting, however.

And certainly Joffrey Lupul's goal against Washington. Game 7 on the road in OT.

My top ten:
1. Clarke 1974
2. Leach 1977
3. Primeau 2000
4. Howe 1985
5. Sinisalo 1987
6. Gagne 2010
7. Roenick 2004
8. Schultz 1974
9. Lupul 2008
10. Dornhoefer 1973
I'm too young to remember the 70s-80s ones, but my top 5 would include (in no particular order):

Carcillo vs. Devils 2010
Primeau vs. Pens in 2000
Roenick vs. Leafs in 2004
Lupul vs. Caps in 2008
Lindros vs. Devils in 1995
