Why are those two series never mentioned when talking about some of the greatest playoff series ever? Especially the 1981 series.

What stuck out was that Philly was up 3-1 both times and Boston had the HC. Boston was able to come back from 3-1 to tie the series at 3-3 and then in one of the series they were able to win.
