Philly has won two of their last three, but the last two games haven’t been pretty for the Orange and Black, as they’ve failed to create many scoring chances.

Assembling a Stanley Cup winner; breaking down the last seven Cup teams

It’s no secret that after losing the 2004-2005 NHL season due to a lockout, the dynamic of assembling an NHL team changed dramatically. With the implementation of a salary cap, there were a myriad of new limitations and restrictions placed on teams and how they spend their money.

Atlantic Watch: 2/29-3/6
