But before head coach Barry Trotz could address all that happened during Game 7 and the series, he needed to speak on a certain player his team battled against in this series -- one that is also battling something else personally.
Oskar Lindblom, the talented 24-year-old forward for the Flyers, was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, back in December. He finished his chemotherapy treatments in July, but it's been months since Lindblom even put skates on. Yet, he returned to his team for a must-win Game 6.
Trotz simply said it was inspirational what Lindblom did.
"Before you ask any questions, I just want to say one thing. Really inspirational what you see [from a] young man Oskar Lindblom who came back," he said. "I think that's exceptional what he did and what he's fighting. So I just want to say that. That to me, as a father, seeing a young man go through that that's -- and the support he gets from the Flyers organization is tremendous. Never want to see a young man go through that and he's done a great job."
The Flyers gave Lindblom a three-year extension a few weeks after they learned of his cancer diagnosis.
