The Philadelphia Flyers are an American ice hockey team based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They compete in the National Hockey League (NHL) Eastern Conference's Atlantic Division. Since their inaugural season in 1967, the team has played its home games on Broad Street in South Philadelphia, first at The Spectrum from 1967 to 1996 and currently at the Wachovia Center since 1996. In forty-one completed seasons, the team has won the Stanley Cup as NHL champions two times and has qualified for the playoffs thirty-three times. They have played more than 360 playoff games, winning 191. As of the end of the 2008–09 season, Philadelphia has won more than 1,600 regular season games, the 7th-highest victory total among NHL teams and the most among non-Original Six teams.[1] The Flyers also possess an all-time .577 points percentage, the second highest among NHL teams.[1]

The Flyers were founded in 1967 and won their first of two consecutive Stanley Cup championships in 1974, the first expansion team to do so. The team has since lost in five return trips to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1976, 1980, 1985, 1987 and 1997. Since their last trip to the Finals in 1997, the Flyers have reached the Eastern Conference Finals three times. The Flyers have never won the Presidents' Trophy, although they led the NHL in regular-season points in three seasons before the league began awarding the trophy. The Flyers last qualified for the playoffs in 2009; their most recent playoff series victory was in 2008.
