1987 Finals Game 3 - With the Flyers down 2-0 in the series after games in Edmonton they returned to the Spectrum to play a game was emblematic of the series, where they get down early and fight back. This remarkable team never stopped fighting and if Tim Kerr was available the outcome may have been different.
Im sitting here watching Flyers vs Rangers from 1979 (i think). I miss this hockey more than what today offers (minus HD and Gritty). It didnt take long to start feeling like it was almost real, esoecially when I saw a George Kennedy commercial advertising Schaefer beer (the one beer to have when you're having more than one)
Even though that was 40+ years ago, one thing was as true then as it is now....
I hate the ****** rangers 🤬
It was unbelievable how in both The 1985 and 1987 Playoffs he cracked ribs, donned a flak jacket and gave it everything he had, (case in point the 2 man short goal vs Quebec in 1985). The guy was a warrior and a leader of men. He epitomized everything I love about those mid 80’s teams, hence my username (Mark Howe was actually my favorite player despite my adoration of the captain).
If its Ranger hate you want how about this game from the 1985 playoffs game 1, the first step in a long journey to the Cup Final. I don’t know about the rest of you who watched that era but I really liked Todd Bergen and was so sad that he left hockey for golf (he couldn’t take the abuse from Iron Mike Keenan).
