Flyers need major changes to win 1st Stanley Cup since 1975

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Flyers used a 50th anniversary celebration season to remind fans of all the great tough guys, playoff stars, Hall of Famers and championship seasons of the past.

Rookies like Ivan Provorov, Travis Konecny and Jordan Weal flashed enough talent to show the future might not be so bad.

But the present, well, it was another lost season for a franchise that has missed the playoffs three times in the last five years. Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds, Jake Voracek and Sean Couturier may have taken their final turn together as part of a core group of veterans expected to at least get the Flyers to the first round of the playoffs. The Flyers, who last reached the Stanley Cup finals in 2010, missed the playoffs once from 1995-2012. The Flyers haven't won a round since 2012 - the last year any of the four major professional Philadelphia franchises won at least one playoff series.
