On May 2, 2010, the Philadelphia Flyers earned a 4-3 overtime victory at the Pittsburgh Penguins to get on the board in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Two nights later, the Flyers went to overtime again. And again. And again.
After even-strength goals in regulation from Pittsburgh's Alex Kovalev and Philadelphia's John LeClair, the two sides squared off in overtime for the second straight contest. But unlike Game 3's decision, one overtime wasn't enough. Nor two, three or even four.
In fact, it took 92 extra minutes of game play that night (and early into the following morning) before Keith Primeau netted one of the most memorable goals in Flyers history. The Flyers claimed victories in the subsequent Games 5 and 6 to oust the Penguins and finished just one game shy of the Stanley Cup Final that year.
It wasn't by any means among the most dynamic goals scored in Philly's 46-year history, but it's certainly among the most satisfying.
On a personal note, this is one of my fondest Flyers memories.
As a senior in high school, I stayed up with my dad to watch the conclusion even though I had a final exam the next morning. I slept 15 minutes at a time during intermissions, and while I don't remember what I scored on my exam the morning after, I distinctly remember both my dad and I jumping out of our respective chairs following Primeau's conversion and embracing in a rare hug exchanged between an 18-year-old son and his father.
