History Of The Philadelphia Flyers
The Philadelphia Flyers joined the NHL as part of the 1967 expansion program and was the first expansion team to win the Stanley Cup. The flyers came about in an unusual way back in 1964 when the then-vice president of the Philadelphia Eagles, Ed Snider, saw a crowd of Boston Bruins fans getting ready to buy hockey tickets. He was at Boston Garden watching a basketball game and found it interesting that fans were forming a crowd to see the last place hockey team.
The NHL expansion plans were meant to block a rival league from moving into the East Coast and Snider started working on his bid for a team. The NHL chose his Philadelphia group over a group representing interests in Baltimore and the Flyers were born with the name being chosen from entries in a name-the-team contest.
The Flyers’ have the second best all-time win percentage in the NHL with 57.9% second only to the Montreal Canadiens with a 58.9% win percentage. The Flyers have also made more semi-final appearances of all twenty-four expansion teams and are second overall for the most playoff appearances of all expansion teams.
The team colors are orange, black and white and the team plays in the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference.
There have been a number of key players who have worn the Flyers uniform and they include Bobby Clarke (1969-1984), Bernie Parent (1967-1979), Bill Barber (1972-1984), Eric Lindros (1992-2000), Mark Howe (1982-1992), John LeClair (1994-2004), Ron Hextall (1986-1999), Reggie Leach (1974-1982), Tim Kerr (1980-1991) and Dave ‘The Hammer’ Schultz (1971-1976).
The Philadelphia Flyers have won two Stanley Cups (1973-1974, 1974-1975), 8 Conference Championships and 16 Division Championships. The Flyers have also appeared in two Winter Classics losing the 3rd annual event (2010) 1-2 in OT against Boston and losing the 5th annual game (2012) 3-2 to New York Rangers.
