The Flyers were playing in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Down two games to one, a Game Four win was pivotal for the Flyers’ playoff hopes. Playing in Toronto against Mats Sundin and Ed Belfour, this was not going to be an easy task at all. The Flyers knew they had to throw everything at Belfour to have a chance...
