It’s beyond belief

The Leastern Conference Final will feature the No. 8 seed, and either the No. 7 or No. 6.

And if it turns out to be Philly and Montreal, or 7 vs. 8, remember that the Flys got in on that skills competition point, and that Bettman Bonus Point got them the seventh seed on a tiebreaker over the Habs.

But even more remarkable than the Canadiens knocking out the Presidents’ Trophy winners and then the defending Stanley Cup champs in back-to-back Game 7s is this:

The Flyers are only the sixth team in history—IN HISTORY!—to come back from 0-3 to force a Game 7.

The last team to do it: The Islanders in 1975. Those Isles, as we said the other day, beat the Penguins after being down 0-3, then played the Flyers, fell 0-3 again, and forced a seventh game which the Flyers won.

And, of course, the Islanders’ comeback vs. Pittsburgh was one of only two IN HISTORY in which a team down 0-3 actually won the series. Toronto did it to Detroit in the 1942 Stanley Cup final. That’s it.

Holy Carcillo!
