Sunday marked the 35th anniversary of the Miracle on Ice and the American hockey team's upset of the Soviet team in the 1980 Olympics. It was a moment that defied the odds.
The Flyers are trying to defy the odds as well. Just over a month ago, after a 4-0 loss to Vancouver on Jan. 15, the team's chances of making the playoffs was less than one percent.
The Flyers trailed the final playoff spot by 11 points after that loss. Following a 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Sunday, they are now four points back in the race.
