It's been 40 years since the Flyers won their first Stanley Cup in 1973-74. On Saturday, they will honor that team against the franchise they defeated to get there.
In the midst of a three-game losing streak and losses in six of their last eight games, the Philadelphia Flyers need to pull out all the positives they can find. Facing the Boston Bruins doesn't look like a positive on the surface.
But the Bruins are the next opponent for the recently slumping Flyers in the midst of a difficult stretch. They face the reigning Eastern Conference champions for the first time in the 2013-14 season on Saturday at Wells Fargo Center at 1 p.m.
