On the road to their first Stanley Cup in franchise history in 1974, the Philadelphia Flyers advanced to the Final by defeating the New York Rangers in a series that went seven games. The deciding contest was played on May 5, 1974.
"When you win a big game like we did from the Rangers, no one is too tired. We're too hungry to be tired. We want that champagne, the big bonus and the honor - mostly the honor," said Philadelphia goalie Bernie Parent, on looking forward to facing the Boston Bruins.
