The New York Yankees of Hockey

I guess it's fair to say to the 2009-10 Boston Bruins are the New York Yankees of hockey.

The Philadelphia Flyers became the fourth team in sports history to erase an 0-3 deficit in a seven game series and come back and win it all. The game was a microcosm of the series: the Bruins jumped out 3-0 in the first period, but Philly came back and scored four straight unanswered goals to win it, 4-3.

They join the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, the 1975 New York Islanders (boy, do I remember that team), and your 2004 Boston Red Sox (boy, do I REALLY remember that team!) as the only teams to turn the trick.

Like that baseball team, this goes on the Bruins' permanent record, and even if they win the Stanley Cup next year, this will be on their resume and will be remembered. Forever.
