It's the most overtime games in a single playoff year since 22 of the 89 games played in 2003 went into overtime, and is tied for the third-highest total in playoff history. The 22 OT games in 2003 included Games 3 and 4 of the Final, both of which were won by Anaheim at home against New Jersey.
The record for most overtime games in one playoff year is 28, set in 85 games in 1993. The 2001 playoffs are next with 26, in 86 games.
Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.
