Flyers Have Reasons To Celebrate

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

The distance between the two locker rooms at Wells Fargo Center is maybe 30 yards. But the distance on this Sunday afternoon, with the Philadelphia Flyers celebrating their opening round victory over Pittsburgh and the Penguins wondering how it all fell apart so quickly, seemed infinitely greater.

The Flyers weren’t just celebrating their 5-1 victory in Game 6 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal over a hated foe; they were celebrating the blossoming of a team that underwent a dramatic upheaval less than a year ago.

“It’s good to see us rewarded here in the playoffs,” defenseman Matt Carle told a small group of reporters in the crowded Flyers locker room. “Probably not too many people picked us to win this series. It feels good for us in the locker room to beat a team like Pittsburgh and move onto the next round.”
