Tonight the Philadelphia Flyers overcame a 3-0 deficit to win the seventh game of their playoff series with the Boston Bruins – a series in which they trailed 3-0. In the process they became only the third NHL team to win a seven-game series after losing the first three games, and the first such team in 35 years. Now the seventh-seeded Flyers will face the eighth-seeded Montreal Canadiens in the Eastern Conference finals — and that has to be a historic match-up as well. Go Flyers!
[Note: I went back and forth over “a historic” and “an historic,” eventually settling on the former.]
