New Broad Street Bullies on the block?

Go Flyers!  I'm not really a hockey fan, but its always nice to be in a city with a winning team at the moment.  I remember how crazy the city went when the Flyers won two Stanley cups in a row back in the 70s.  I even got to meet legendary goalie Bernie Parent at my parents bank one afternoon and got his autograph.  Holy crap...did I just age myself?  Wow, feeling a little old posting about this.

Here's a bit of retro goodness from when the Flyers won the Stanley cup in 74 and 75.  Dave Schultz had to be the most bad-ass hockey player around!  As a kid, he terrified the hell out of  me!  Would certainly not want to encounter this guy in a dark alleyway!

Being a Pens fan and living less than an hour from Pittsburgh....I can't root for the dreaded Flyers.

You are on your own on this one!

Honestly, I'm surprised they made it this far. Back in December they had one of the worst records and had fired their coach...so the fact that they made it to the playoffs at all was a miracle. I miss the days when guys didn't wear protective helmets and fights broke out every few minutes....those were the days!
