Snider has Stanley Cup expectations for Flyers

NHL.com @NHL

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Ed Snider says the expectations for the Philadelphia Flyers are always the same.

Win the Stanley Cup.

Snider is chairman of Comcast-Spectacor, which owns the 76ers and Flyers. He is the founder of the Flyers and led them to their greatest triumph in the 1970s when they won two Stanley Cup championships.

The Flyers came close last year before losing in Game 6 of the finals to Chicago. Snider says the Flyers enter the postseason stronger than they did last year when they were the seventh-seed. The Flyers are the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference and open the postseason Thursday against Buffalo.

Snider says he's confident the Flyers will do well and that the goal "is always a Stanley Cup."

He, too, is proud of how the Sixers rebounded from a dismal season to make the playoffs.
