May 24, 1980...NY Islanders Defeat Flyers, 5-4 in overtime

On this date in 1980, the New York Islanders defeated the Flyers in Nassau Veterans' Memorial Coliseum, 5-4 in overtime, in Game Six of the Stanley Cup Finals. With the win, the Islanders won the series, four games to two.

Down three games to one, the Flyers won Game Five, 6-3, at the Spectrum on May 22 to force a Game Six back in New York.

The Flyers opened the scoring in the game with a power play goal by Reggie Leach at 7:21 of the first period. Defenseman Denis Potvin then scored a power play goal for the Islanders to tie the score at 1-1. The Islanders' Duane Sutter and the Flyers' Brian Propp each scored even strength goals in the first period to make the score 2-2 after the first period.

The Islanders outscored the Flyers, 2-0, in the second period to take a 4-2 lead into the second intermission.

The Flyers responded by scoring two goals in the third period (Bob Dailey - 1:47 and John Paddock - 6:02) to tie the score at 4-4 and force overtime.

The Islanders' Bob Nystrom scored his second goal of the game at 7:11 of the first overtime period to give the Islanders the victory, the series win and the Stanley Cup.

Fifteen of the 26 goals that the Islanders scored in the series were scored on the power play. The 15 power play goals against and the 26 goals against in the series set new Flyers records for most power play goals allowed in a series and most goals allowed in a six-game series.
