Throughout the summer months, philadelphiaflyers.com will dig through the archives here at the Wachovia Center and take a look back at some classic moments in the history of the Wachovia Spectrum as the building prepares to close its doors forever.

In 1975-76, the Philadelphia Flyers were attempting to win their third straight Stanley Cup. In the quarterfinals, they went up against the Toronto Maple Leafs, in what would prove to be a long and evenly played series. The Flyers won the first two games at the Spectrum fairly easily, with a 4-1 win in Game 1 and a 3-1 victory in Game 2. The series shifted back to Maple Leaf Gardens for the next two games, with the Toronto coming away with a pair of one-goal victories.

A pivotal Game 5 was back at the Spectrum on April 20, 1976, and the Flyers were determined to retake the series lead. Already holding a 2-1 second period advantage, Gary Dornhoefer and Don Saleski scored just 13 seconds apart to give the home team a three-goal cushion. The goals still stand as the fastest two scores in the playoffs in franchise history.

Philadelphia cruised to a 7-1 win behind Saleski's hat trick, and eventually won the series in seven games.
