Philadelphia Flyers Playoff Details

p>The NHL expanded from six teams to twelve for the 1967-68 season. In 1974, the Flyers became the first of the new expansion teams to win the Stanley Cup. The Flyers teams of the 1970s were nicknamed the Broad Street Bullies because they were one of the toughest teams to play against. Dave Schultz, their best-known fighter and enforcer, set the NHL record for penalty minutes in a single season.

During the 70s, the Flyers frequently played a recording of Kate Smith singing “God Bless America” in lieu of the National Anthem. Kate Smith and the song became a good luck charm for the team, and the Flyers brought her to Philadelphia so she could sing it in person during the playoffs. The Flyers first qualified for the Stanley Cup Final in 1974, and Smith sang God Bless America before the series-deciding Game 6. The Flyers won the game and won Philadelphia’s first Stanley Cup. The Flyers repeated as champions the next season.

The Flyers have reached the Stanley Cup Final many times since 1975, but they’ve had to play an elite opponent nearly each time. In 1976, the Montreal Canadiens ended Philly’s hopes for threepeat (Montreal won six Stanley Cups in the 1970s). In 1980, the Flyers lost in the Final to the New York Islanders, who would also win the next three Stanley Cups. In 1985 and 1987, the Flyers played yet another dynasty in the Stanley Cup Final—this time it was Wayne Gretzky and the Edmonton Oilers. The Flyers came close in ‘87, but the Oilers won the Cup in seven games. In 1997, the Flyers played the Red Wings in the Final, and the Red Wings won their first of two consecutive Stanley Cups. In 2010, the Flyers made a Cinderella run to the Final but lost to the Chicago Blackhawks, who won their first of three Stanley Cups that decade. Talk about bad luck.

In 2010, the Flyers pulled off one of the most memorable comebacks in playoff history. Down 3 games to none to Boston in the second round of the playoffs, the Flyers rallied back and won the next four games to take the series. In Game 7, the Bruins took a 3-0 lead, but the Flyers made a comeback within their comeback, scored the next four goals, and won the series. The Flyers were just the third team, and the first since the 1975 New York Islanders, to come back after trailing 3 games to none in a playoff series.
