Led by high-scoring center Bobby Clarke, Dave "The Hammer" Schultz at left wing, and goaltender Bernie Parent, the Philadelphia Flyers of the early 1970s were known as the Broad Street Bullies for their physically aggressive style of play. Born in the NHL's 1967 growth spurt, the Flyers became the first expansion franchise to win the league championship, drinking from the Stanley Cup in 1974 and again the following season. In the year's since, they've added 12 division titles and reached the Stanley Cup finals five more times.
