Flyers-Hawks overtime in Final

NHL.com @NHL
The Philadelphia Flyers and Chicago Blackhawks have vastly different histories in overtime games in the Stanley Cup Final.

The Flyers are 1-4 in overtime in the Final and have lost their last four games -- one in 1987 to  Edmonton, two in 1980 to the New York Islander, including the Cup-winner in Game 6) and one in 1975 to Buffalo). Their lone OT win in the Stanley Cup Final was their first game -- Game 2 of the 1974 Final at Boston Garden, won 3-2 on a goal by Bobby Clarke.

By going to OT on Wednesday, the Blackhawks are playing their first overtime in a Stanley Cup Final since 1971, a 2-1 double-OT victory over Montreal in Game 1. To find the next one, you have to go back to 1944 -- a series-clinching loss to Montreal in Game 4. Overall, the Blackhawks are 5-1 in overtime during the Final, having won twice against Detroit in 1934 and twice against Montreal three years earlier.
