The Philadelphia Flyers' first win at the Boston Garden since Nov. 12, 1967 could not possibly have come at a more important time. On May 9, 1974, the Flyers earned a comeback 3-2 win over the Bruins in overtime to knot the 1974 Stanley Cup Final at one game apiece.
Bobby Clarke's overtime rebound goal and celebratory jump for joy at 12:01 becomes an iconic moment in franchise history. With the home team winning every other game in the series, this victory was crucial to the Flyers eventually winning the Stanley Cup.
Philadelphia trailed by a 2-0 score after the first period. Clarke's first goal of the game, scored 1:08 into the second period, cuts the gap in half. However, Philly remained in dire straights until Andre "Moose" Dupont scored with just 52 seconds left in the third period to force OT. Flyers captain Clarke assists on this goal.
Vezina Trophy and Conn Smythe Trophy winner Bernie Parent stopped 37 of 39 shots.
