The game between the Flyers and Bruins was in February 1980 which was after the unbeaten streak was stopped at 35. There was a home unbeaten streak that continued at 26 games but was stopped the next game (first game post-All-Star Break). Phil Myre, the goalie, was pulled with about 1:15 remaining and the team down 3-1.

There were also five cases of teams scoring two extra-attacker goals in the last two minutes of the third period in one game this season, including a victory by the Minnesota Wild over the Vancouver Canucks on the next-to-last weekend of the regular season, which was truly wild. Minnesota actually surrendered an empty-net goal to provide Vancouver with what seemed to be a comfortable two-goal cushion - and then promptly scored twice in the final minute with the goalie on the bench.
