Greenville Road Warriors (ECHL)

The Philadelphia Flyers are a professional ice hockey team based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They are members of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL) and are the current Eastern Conference Champions. Part of the 1967 NHL Expansion, the Flyers were the first non-Original Six team to win the Stanley Cup, victorious in 1973-74 and again in 1974-75.

The Flyers' all-time winning percentage of .576 (as of the end of the 2009–10 season) is the second best in the NHL, behind only the Montreal Canadiens' .591 winning percentage.[1] Additionally, the Flyers have the most semifinal/conference final appearances out of all expansion teams (16; winning 8) and the most playoff appearances out of all expansion teams (35 out of 43 seasons).

The Flyers have played their home games on Broad Street since their inception, first at The Spectrum from 1967 until 1996, and then at the Wells Fargo Center from 1996 to the present.

The Flyers have had rivalries with several teams over the years. Historically, their biggest rivals have been the New York Rangers, with whom the Flyers have had many brawls and playoff match-ups over the years; the New Jersey Devils, whom they faced four times in the playoffs since 1995, and with whom they traded the Atlantic Division title every season between 1995 and 2007; and their cross-state rivals the Pittsburgh Penguins.
