Let’s get in our way-back machines and travel to a distant, magical time- the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Trailing 3-0 in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, the Philadelphia Flyers won three consecutive games to tie the series and send it back to Boston for an historic seventh game. The fairytale ending was in doubt quite early, with the Bruins taking a 3-0 lead inside the game’s first 15 minutes.
And then, something magical happened.
Peter Laviolette called a timeout and told his team to just get one before the period ended. James van Riemsdyk delivered, getting Philly on the board with less than three to play in the opening frame.
The rest was history (listen, I know that was a corny-ass cliche, but come on)...
And now it’s almost noon on a Monday and I’ve fallen down a “History will be made” hole.
Anyway, as I’m getting choked up on my couch, listen to Kelly Hinkle and me discuss the decisive seventh game against Boston following NBCSPhilly’s encore presentation of the game on Sunday night and get all nostalgic with us. We had fun recording it, so you’re probably going to like it.
