The Philadelphia Flyers are an NHL franchise based out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania playing in the Eastern Conference's Metropolitan Division. The Flyers joined the NHL as an expansion team in 1967, along with the California Seals, Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota North Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins, and St. Louis Blues. Playing all of their home games on Broad Street since their establishment, first at the Spectrum from 1967 to 1996 and then at the Wells Fargo Center from 1996 until now, the team is nicknamed the “Broad Street Bullies”.
The Flyers were the first expansion team in the post-Original Six era to win the Stanley Cup, victorious in 1973-74 and 1974-75. Philadelphia's all-time win percentage of 57.8% is the second best in the NHL, behind only the Montreal Canadiens' 58.9%. The Flyers have won eight conference titles and 16 division championships on top of their two Cup wins, making them one of the most successful teams in all of hockey. The Broad Street Bullies dynasty of the 1970's features some of hockey's all-time greats, like Bobby Clarke, Bernie Parent, and Bill Barber. Today, some of the biggest names in the NHL call the City of Brotherly Love home, including all-star captain Claude Giroux and future Hall of Famer Steve Mason.
