This Date In Flyers History...May 28
May 28, 1987...Flyers Defeat Edmonton, 3-2

On this date in 1987, the Flyers defeated the Edmonton Oilers at the Spectrum, 3-2, in Game Six of the Stanley Cup Finals. With the win, the Flyers forced the series to a deciding Game Seven in Edmonton three nights later.

For the sixth consecutive game in the series, the Oilers opened the scoring on a shorthanded goal by defenseman Kevin Lowe at 5:08 of the first period. Edmonton made the score 2-0 on a goal by Kevin McClelland at 15:16 of the opening period. For Edmonton, it would be the fourth consecutive game in the series that they would have a 2-0 first-period lead.

The Flyers' comeback started with a goal by Lindsay Carson at 7:12 of the second period.

The Flyers entered the third period trailing 2-1. The Flyers had an opportunity to tie the score when Edmonton's Glenn Anderson was called for a high sticking minor penalty at 12:21 of the third period. The Flyers were able to captialize on their sixth power play attempt of the game as Brian Propp scored a power play goal at 13:04 to tie the score at 2-2.

Just one minute and 24 seconds later (14:28), Flyers defenseman J.J. Daigneault scored one of the most memorable goals in Flyers history as his shot from the point found its way past Oilers goaltender Grant Fuhr and into the net to give the Flyers a 3-2 lead.

Flyers goaltender Ron Hextall shutout the Oilers over the final two periods of play as he stopped all 17 Oilers shots.

All three Flyers victories in the Finals came after the Oilers had taken a 2-0 in each game. Brian Propp's third-period power play goal was his 28th point of the playoffs, setting a new team record for most points in a playoff year.
