Saturday's game in Carolina marked the 26th time the Flyers have played in a game that went into overtime. For the 14th time, the Flyers had to face the dreaded shootout. For the 11th time, they lost.
It is a familiar pattern that offers no silver lining - though Nick Cousins first shootout attempt and goal was definitely pretty.
Perhaps the only silver lining here is that this is truly the beginning of the end for the Flyers. A forgettable season is almost over, and the road woes that plagued the Flyers all season are finally complete. It ended, however, in the most fitting fashion.
