Give the Philadelphia Flyers credit.
They get an emotional reaction out of nearly every team that plays them.
They have deep-seated and vicious rivalries with more teams than any other team in sports.
Most teams have one hated rival and some have two. The Flyers have blood rivalries with at least five teams.
The cross-state Pittsburgh Penguins are probably No. 1 on the list, and the New York Rangers also enjoy a passionate hatred for the Flyers. How much joy do you think the Washington Capitals get when they beat the Flyers?
The Flyers became the first expansion team to win the Stanley Cup when they beat the Boston Bruins in 1974, and they humiliated the Bruins by coming back from an 0-3 deficit to win a 2010 playoff series.
Then there's the New Jersey Devils. These teams have met in five playoff series, and the individual matchup between former Flyer Eric Lindros and ex-Devil Scott Stevens set the tone for this edgy matchup.
