Flyers Throwback: Legion of Doom take down Rangers to make Cup Finals

Philadelphia: During any playoff series where you are one game away from advancing to the next round, you do whatever it takes to get the job done.

We go back to May 25, 1997, as the Philadelphia Flyers took on the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals from the CoreStates Center in South Philadelphia. The Flyers lead the Series 3-1 & were looking to end the series and advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Flyers open the scoring on a goal from Eric Lindros & then the Rangers scored the next two goals on the power play to take the 2-1 lead. The Rangers were not ready to go away but the Flyers had other ideas as scored the next three goals. The Flyers win the game 4-2 & for the First time since 1987 that the Flyers would be making their appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals

Boxscore:
