Top Ten Philly Sports Moments of 2010: #6 Mike Richards Scores in Game 5


This is our second annual "Top Ten Philly Sports Moments of the year."  You can find last year's list here.  We will roll out a new moment each day (one over the weekend) from now until New Year's Eve.

With a win against the Canadiens in Game 5, the Flyers had a chance to put themselves into the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since 1997.  After falling behind early, 1-0, Mike Richards was not about to let his team miss a chance to clinch the conference at home.

He blew up Marc-Andre Bergeron at the blue line, led the Flyers on a scoring chance, helped break up a play going the other way, then bowled over Jaroslav Halek before scoring the tying goal.  His effort symbolized the never-give-up attitude of Flyers' run last spring.  And, despite coming earlier than Claude Giroux's Finals' winner, ranks higher on this list because it made it apparent that the team wasn't leaving the building that night without the Prince of Wales Trophy- one the NHL later screwed up the engraving on.

Relive the goal and the NHL's History will be Made commercial, after the jump.

Rest of the Top Ten here.  As always, leave your memories of this moment in the comments.
