Flyers fans had to watch from afar again. The Los Angeles Kings claimed another Stanley Cup Championship on Friday night and three former Flyers hoisted Lord Stanley's Cup once again.
It wasn't long ago that Jeff Carter and Mike Richards were on the ice at Wells Fargo Center wearing the Orange and Black and skating off with the Prince of Wales Trophy in 2010. Four years after the heartbreaking overtime loss against the Blackhawks in Philadelphia, Carter and Richards have won the Cup twice.
Justin Williams, a Flyer from 2000 to 2004, won his third Stanley Cup since his departure from Philadelphia. This time around, he was also the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as playoffs MVP.
John Stevens, the head coach of the Flyers from 2006 to 2010, has served as an assistant for the Kings through the past four seasons which have featured the two Cup wins and a trip to the Western Conference Final in 2013.
Through all of it, one person was there throughout the building process, recenly-named Flyers GM Ron Hextall.
