An interesting statistic to add to the mix:
In the 2011 and 2012 playoffs, the Flyers were 9-13. In each of the nine wins, the Flyers scored at least four goals. In each of the the 13 losses, they scored three goals or less. Granted, the goaltending those years was mostly putrid, but you can't expect to go deep if you can't win any tight-checking games.
