Standings-wise, Boston and Philadelphia were separated by only 1 point and 2 wins (52-17-9 and 113 pts for the Bruins, 50-16-12 and 112 pts for the Flyers). But I hear a lot about how it was such a huge upset that Philly won the Cup. We know of course about what happened that series: Moose Dupont tying game 2 late in regulation Bobby Clarke scoring in OT Bernie Parent living up to the "Only the Lord saves more than Bernie Parent" bumper sticker Fred Shero's 'Dump the puck into Bobby Orr's corner and wear him down' strategy, 'Win today and we walk together forever,' Kate Smith's live rendition of God Bless America Rick MacLeish's goal holding up in game 6 Gene Hart's iconic Cup winning call. How does it compare with other playoff upsets (i.e. Islanders/Penguins 1993, Flames/Oilers 1986, Montreal/Washington 2010, 1982 Kings/Oilers, 1990 Flames/Kings)? Was it truly that shocking as I hear that Philly won that Cup and the Bruins could not make it 3 in 5 years?
