The Flyers are going to the Stanley Cup Finals.
For the first time since 1997, the Flyers will play for the big silver trophy that they have not won since 1975. The final score was Flyers 4, Montreal 2. The opponent will be the Chicago Blackhawks, who haven't won the Cup since 1961.
History will record that Jeff Carter scored the game-winner in the second period, and that captain Mike Richards had the first goal and the primary assist on Carter's decisive goal. Carter also scored into an emtpy net at the end after an outrageous effort by Richards to keep the puck alive.
