On Tuesday, May 27th, 1975, the Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Buffalo Sabres at Buffalo Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo to win the 62nd Stanley Cup Finals four games to two. It was the second (and, as of this writing, most recent) Stanley Cup championship for the Flyers franchise, and the third that was won in New York. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
