In each of the Flyers last three seasons, the playoff push has not been easy.
In a lockout-shortened 2013 season, the Flyers carried a frantic playoff push into the final few games. Last season, it took a rally from a horrendous start to the season just to make the playoffs. The Flyers finally clinched a spot with three games remaining in the regular season.
Now there is the 2014-15 season and the Flyers even crazier path into playoff relevancy. It was there on Tuesday night, as the Flyers were presented with a chance to close the gap to four points in the standings. Riding a nine-game points streak, the Flyers fell to pieces on several occasions, falling to the Columbus Blue Jackets for the fourth time in five games this season.
