Truth is, the mood is much different. Game 78 last season was a loss as well -
but people generally seemed to be more supportive;
even wearily smiling, perhaps. I guess that's the nature of how expectations weigh against outlook.
Regardless of record, I'd love for the team to get across the finish line without a creeping "slump" narrative from the media. Competitive losses and a lower seed will do just fine for me. The Flyers might be the most affected squad in the league when it comes to performing in front of a murmuring, concerned home crowd... (and I have absolutely no evidence to back that up).
There were also different posters there then than there are here now. And the expectations were/are higher this year.
