The Philadelphia Flyers win the Stanley Cup in 1975

All Stars

The 1975 Stanley Cup Final championship series was played by the Buffalo Sabres, making their first Finals appearance and the defending champion Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers would win the best-of-seven series four games to two. This was the first Final to have two non-"Original Six" teams since the 1967 expansion. The 1975 Flyers are the last Stanley Cup championship team to be composed solely of Canadian-born players.

Bernie Parent was the whole ball of wax for the outgunned Flyers, allowing only 12 goals in the six games, capped with a shutout. He became the first player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy for two consecutive years. Since then, only Mario Lemieux has managed to duplicate this feat. In the deciding game six played in Buffalo, the Sabres offensive big guns rained shot after shot on Parent in an all out effort to turn the series around but Parent remained perfect. He stopped French Connection linemates Gilbert Perreault and Rick Martin on a 2-1 late in period two that had Flyers legendary broadcaster Gene Hart screaming into his microphone...

Out come the Sabers...two on one...Perreault and Martin with just Dupont back...Perrault to Martin...He's in...Shot!....save by Parent!...and he hangs on!...Oh Baby!

The dramatic stop by Parent took the offensive energy out of the Sabres and the Flyers scored two third period goals to take the championship.
