The road to Lord Stanley's Cup is not an easy one. In fact the NHL playoffs are probably the hardest of all team sports.
For the Philadelphia Flyers, their path to the promised land this year will be difficult as any. Any team can beat another in a seven game series. While some teams are heavily favored against others there will be teams the Flyers do not stack up as the superior against.
Having registered wins against all the heavy hitters from the Western Conference, the Flyers road looks most difficult in the first three rounds. However despite early season success there will be challenges awaiting in the final round should they get there.
