PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Stop me if you have heard this before: the Philadelphia Flyers' Stanley Cup championship hopes are in big trouble.
Concern has again enveloped the growing legion of hockey fans who have embraced the Orange and Black during this most unexpected roller-coaster ride through the NHL playoffs. While the City of Brotherly Love - with its natural fatalistic attitude toward its sports teams - is worried as the Flyers return following a pair of road losses to the Chicago Blackhawks, there seems to be no reason to panic.
After all, this team has been down and nearly all the way out several times along the way and still managed to survive and advance. And Games 3 and 4 will be played in Philadelphia, where the Flyers are 7-1 in these playoffs.
