If one person is a leader, surely there are those who follow him or her. If someone is described as the best, surely there is another one who is following his or her footsteps. Such is also the case when it comes to sports. For every champion, there has to be someone who takes the second and the third spot. And whenever people mention the Montreal Canadiens, the Philadelphia Flyers are not far behind.
In the world of ice hockey, the Montreal Canadiens team is considered to have the best points average of all time at .588. A few steps behind is none other than the Philadelphia Flyers at .579. You would notice that it was indeed a close fight.
The Philadelphia Flyers belonged to the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the NHL. Some of their most popular rivals are the New York Rangers and the New Jersey Devils. The Flyers first came about in 1967. During that time, the team had very little to go on with since the current roster of available players in the whole of NHL were either veterans on their way out or amateurs who have not had their taste of a major league play.
Over the years, however, the Philadelphia Flyers were able to shed the expansion team image to become the team to beat. The team has given “birth” to a number of NHL stars such as the late Pelle Lindbergh, Eric Lindros, Bobby Clarke, and Ron Hextall, among others. Of these legends, none was as tragic as the loss of Pelle Lindbergh who died when he lost control of his Prosche while driving down a road in New Jersey. The accident also nearly took the life of his two passengers. It was said that he was intoxicated when the mishap occurred.
Today, however, one of the rising stars of the Philadelphia Flyers is LW Tye McGinn. The team actually has their hopes set high for this center although it is widely known that McGinn has injured his knee last December while playing for the minor league. Although that might be the case, it cannot be denied that he is one of the rising wingers to watch out for. Although he has not played in the NHL for the flyers yet, many are pretty confident that he would be able to play this season what with him already having a taste of the Flyers training camp. Right now, McGinn is on loan to the Adirondack Phantoms for the AHL where he will be spending his 2012 to 2013 season. He was drafted by the Flyers during the fourth round of the NHL Entry draft that took place last 2010. To date, McGinn has had 11 goals and four assists as well as 52 penalty minutes. These figures are all for the Phantoms.
The team is currently being coached by Peter Laviolette. If you want to catch the Philadelphia Flyers on their game against the New Jersey Devils this Tuesday, simply get your Philadelphia Flyers tickets from Ticket Broker.
