Flyers West Update: Journey to Cup Finals Is A Team Effort

The Los Angeles Kings have had a remarkable run so far in these playoffs. They’ve knocked off the top three seeded teams in the West and have earned a spot in the Stanley Cup Finals. They’ve won all eight games on the road during the playoffs, and went 12-2 overall. And they did it all as a team.

Within the first minute of the game, the Flyers were already dictating play. Early pressure from …

The Penguins hold just a one point lead over the Flyers and the Fly guys have two games in hand as they’ve played 35 to Pittsburgh’s 37.  The Flyers obviously would love to forget what happened a week ago at home, but alas, they would do well not to as they got smoked in …
