…Aside from the recent slide, the argument can be made that no team matches up to the Flyers in the entire league, save possibly the Vancouver Canucks and Detroit Red Wings. I’m tired of the “Runner-Up” label too; I, like many Flyers fans, have never seen a Cup won by the Orange and Black in my lifetime, and I’d love for that to end this season. Still, so much has to happen between now and (hopefully) when the Flyers are playing in June.
There are still 15 games left in this regular season, and the Flyers have yet to truly distance themselves from the pack. Will they? Well, taking care of business against the next few teams that are out of the playoff picture will certainly help.
