By qualifying for the playoffs via a shootout win over the New York Rangers in their final regular season game, the Flyers -- who had the NHL's 18th-best record (41-35-6 for 88 points) -- may be the most unlikely Stanley Cup finalist since the league's 1967 expansion. Their road included only the third comeback from a three-games-to-none deficit and a reliance on two journeymen goalies (Brian Boucher, Michael Leighton), all while nursing injuries to key players like Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne.
