The year was 2012 and the team we’re talking about is the Philadelphia Flyers.

While the Flyers have dominated in recent years, looking back, the 2012 year was a year destined for a shortened season. The Flyers ended up finishing the season having played just 48 games, ending with a record right around .500.

The Flyers would go on to struggle again until the 2019 – 2020 season, a season cut short by the worldwide pandemic of 2020. The team boasted a 41-20 record before getting eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
