Pittsburgh PA: The Drama that is the Stanley Cup Playoffs get more interesting during every game of a seven-game series and there is one game that comes to mind.

Let’s go to May 4, 2000, as the Philadelphia Flyers took on the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals from Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh. The Penguins lead the series 2-1 going into game 4.

Brian Boucher got the start in goal for the Flyers going against Ron Tuggent for the Penguins.

This game would live in playoff history for both teams as it would take multiple overtimes to decide this game, we would head to the fifth overtime and Keith Primeau would end it and the Flyers would tie the series at 2-2.
