VOORHEES, N.J. (AP) -Jeff Carter walks by a framed photo of the Flyers' 1975 championship parade every day before practice.

It's a snapshot of an era when 2 million fans packed the streets to celebrate the second of back-to-back Stanley Cup championships. But the picture is in black and white, a reminder that their heyday as the best team in the NHL was 35 years ago.

Carter, Mike Richards, Chris Pronger and the rest of this year's Flyers hope to add a little color with a new picture on the walls at their practice rink - and a championship banner raised high above home ice.

The Flyers took Tuesday off but used it to reflect on a stunning postseason run that has them in the Stanley Cup finals for the first time in 13 years.
