The Philadelphia Flyers have only been in business since 1967, but they have an amazing history behind them. The Flyers were one of six teams to join the NHL for the 1967-68 season, in the league’s first expansion since 1942. The newcomers from Philly wasted no time in establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with.
After winning the West Division in their very first season, the Flyers made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1974 and beat the Boston Bruins in six games to become the first of the ‘67 expansion teams to win hockey's biggest prize. They weren’t done either. The “Broad Street Bullies” repeated as champions the following year after a Finals victory over the Buffalo Sabres. Incidentally, the 1975 Stanley Cup championship team was the last to date that was composed entirely of players from Canada.
The Flyers battled their way back to the Finals in '76, but the third time was not the charm, as they were swept by the Canadiens in four games. Although the team has come close to capturing another Cup, luck simply hasn’t been with the team. They lost the Stanley Cup Finals in 1980, 1985, 1987, 1997, and 2010. Nonetheless, the Flyers remain strong competitors on the ice, and it's no secret why they have such a devoted following.
