Amazingly, you'll re-live all of these amazing games in their entirety, just as they aired back in the day:
1974 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 2 (Flyers at Boston Bruins, May 9, 1974) - Captain Bobby Clarke shocks the Boston Garden faithful with an OT winner to even the series at one win each.
1974 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6 (Bruins at Flyers, May 19, 1974) - Conn Smythe Trophy winner Bernie Parent shuts down the Bruins with a masterful 1-0 victory, and the Flyers become the first expansion team to win the Stanley Cup!
1975 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6 (Buffalo Sabres at Flyers, May 27, 1975) - For the second straight year, Parent shuts out an offensive juggernaut to clinch a championship, as Clarke, Bill Barber, Dave Schultz, Andre Dupont, Reggie Leach, Gary Dornhoefer, Rick MacLeish, Orest Kindrachuk, Bob Kelly, and the rest of the boys skate with hockey's Holy Grail.
"Super Series 1976", Game 4 (Soviet Red Army at Flyers, January 11, 1976) - After defeating the New York Rangers and Boston Bruins, and skating to a 3-3 draw with the Montreal Canadiens, the Soviet Union's Red Army team thought this game would be another walk in the park. But after only eight minutes of punishing play by the Broad Street Bullies, the Soviets had enough! They walked off the ice with 11:21 remaining in the first period, causing pandemonium at the old Spectrum. What happened next? Watch to find out!
