I was in the building that night, and when J.J. scored it was the loudest the old Spectrum ever got.

The Propp goal is often forgotten, what a shot. Just roofed under the crossbar.

Watching those two brings a tear to the eye. The 1987 and 2004 Flyers teams deserved better fates ... no two teams in Flyers history left more on the line.

So true.. I'm more partial to the '87 team.
In '04, if we'd have had one more healthy d-man, we'd have won that series vs. Tampa.

I may have been 2 at the time, but I never get bored of watching great Flyers moments like that. Must have been amazing.

we didnt need one more healthy d-man, well it would have helped, we just needed the players to show up in game 7, Primeau did nothing on the road

The team was completely spent. We absolutely needed another defenseman. Once Ragnarsson got hurt mid-way through the Tampa series, their PP went beserk. With a healthy Desjardins or Ragnarsson we win.

Both were devastated by injuries. The 2004 team I'm sure with a healthy team we beat Tampa and Calgary.

In 87, we'd have had a much better chance against the Oilers with a healthy team, but they were still the better team. When we finally pushed them to the brink taking an early 1-0 lead in game 7, that team showed how good they could be, the Oilers turned up the dial another few notches and completely took over the game.

The 84-85 - 87-87 Flyers teams are the best in history to have not won the Cup



Off-topic: I'm driving home the other night and listening to the Flyers-Devils and you could hear it in Propp's voice how much he envies Gagne getting to play with Forsberg. Propp never had the chance to play with an elite centerman. If he did he's over 500 goals and has a spot in the HHoF.

The other thing about 1987 was the perfect script. The NYR and NYI were the two biggest rivals at the time, Montreal, not only because of their history but was also the defending Cup Champ, and then there was Edmonton -- THE TEAM at the time.
