Ranking the 5 Most Important Overtime Goals in Philadelphia Flyers History

Jeremy Roenick celebrates making our list of great Flyers overtime goals.

There is nothing more exciting in the game of hockey than scoring a big goal in overtime to win a playoff game. The Philadelphia Flyers has scored many big overtime goals since entering the NHL in 1967, but now we are going to look back at the top five overtime game-winning goals in franchise history.

To qualify for this list, the goal has to take place in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Regular-season overtime contests are exciting, but they can't match the drama and significance of a postseason game.

The bigger the game, the more weight is given to it on this list. A series-clinching goal or a tally in a Stanley Cup Final game will have more significance than Game 1 of an opening-round matchup.

In addition, the goal's impact on the Flyers both at the time and in historical context will be taken into account.

Feel free to comment on any of these goals or to mention a moment you feel belongs on this list but was omitted. As always, indicate why you feel the way you do.
