May 22, 1995...Flyers Defeat Rangers, 4-3 in overtime

On this date in 1995, the Flyers defeated the New York Rangers at the Spectrum, 4-3 in overtime, in Game Two of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series. The win gave the Flyers a two-games-to-none lead in the series.

For the second consecutive game, the Rangers jumped out to a 2-0 first-period lead. The Flyers responded by outscoring New York in the second period, 2-0. Eric Lindros and Dmitry Yushkevich each scored a goal for the Flyers in the second period.

The Flyers' Mikael Renberg scored a goal in the first minute of the third period (0:25) to give the Flyers their first lead of the game at 3-2. Rangers defenseman Brian Leetch scored his third goal of the game at 11:19 of the third period to tie the score at 3-3. Neither team could score during the remainder of the third period and the game went into overtime for the second consecutive day.

The Flyers quickly went to work in the first overtime period as defenseman Kevin Haller scored the game-winning goal at 0:25 to give the Flyers the 4-3 win.

Lindros and Renberg each posted three points in the contest (1G,2A).

Combined with the overtime victory in Game One the night before, it was the first time in team history that the Flyers had consecutive overtime wins on consecutive days in the same series and it was only the second time in team history that the Flyers had consecutive overtime wins in consecutive games in the same series.
