The Philadelphia Flyers galvanized the tri-state area back in the 1970s with their magical run to win the Stanley Cup.  This Sunday marks the 50th year to the day that the Broad Street Bullies won their first Stanley Cup.

Back then, Philadelphia was known as the city of Losers.  That all changed on May 19th 1974.  Led by their Goaltender Bernie Parent, Team Captain Bobby Clarke, and “The Hammer” Dave Schultz, the Flyers captivated Philly sports fans with their unique style of play.
