It took 81 games, but the Philadelphia Flyers have clinched a wild card position in the 2016 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs. The Flyers defeated their cross-state rivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins, on Saturday night by a score of 3-1 to clinch their second playoff spot in the past four seasons. The Flyers were truly underdogs heading into the season. Behind the true superstars on the team in Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux, many of the players were seen as underachievers. The team had also just signed a new head coach in Dave Hakstol and a new general manager in Ron Hextall, so many people believed that this season would be spent acclimating to an entirely new structure. Instead, the team played its heart out and made it to the playoffs.
