May 28, 1987
It’s Game 6 of the 1987 Stanley Cup Finals between the Flyers and the Edmonton Oilers at the Spectrum. The Flyers were down three games to two and needed a win on home ice to force a Game 7 back in Edmonton.
To get there, the Flyers would need contributions from everyone to beat the high-flying Oilers and not see them parade the Cup around on their home ice. One would expect a star of the team to step forward and be the hero - Rick Tocchet, Brian Propp or even smooth-skating defenseman Mark Howe.
On this day, it would be 21-year-old rookie defenseman J.J. Daigneault.
