Nicknamed the "Broad Street Bullies" for their aggressive style of play, the Philadelphia Flyers became the first expansion team to win the Stanley Cup. Flyer's goaltender Bernie Parent earned the Conn Smythe Trophy posting a 2.02 goals-against average in 17 games. Parent shutout the Boston Bruins in the final game of the final series at home 1-0. Boston was a heavy favorite coming into the final series owning two of the last four Stanley Cups and a 17-0-2 record versus Philadelphia at home. Although Boston did win two games at home, Flyer captain Bobby Clarke erased the undefeated record with an overtime goal and win in game two. Philadelphia went on to win the series in six games and captured their first of two straight titles.
