Flyers Throwback: J.J. Daigneault blows Spectrum roof off vs Oilers

Philadelphia: As we know during any playoff there are going to be moments that will define the series and also make players legacy.

Let’s go to May 28, 1987, as the Philadelphia Flyers took on the Edmonton Oilers in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals from the Spectrum in South Philadelphia. The Oilers lead the series 3-2 and were looking to end the series.

Edmonton came out and jumped on the Flyers for a 2-0 lead in the first on goals from Kevin Lowe & Kevin McClelland. Philadelphia would get on the board in the second period on a goal from Lindsay Carson.

The game would change in the third period as the Flyers came out with a fury of shots to get the game tied and they did that on goal from Brian Propp and then a few minutes later, what would happen is one of the moments in the Flyers history and also for the Spectrum as J.J. Daigneault blasted shot from the point to give Flyers the 3-2 lead and for those who were at that game said the building felt like it was moving.

Gene Hart on PRISM:

The Flyers would hold on for 3-2 win and force a deciding Game 7 back in Edmonton.
