Rewind to the Spring of 2010. The Philadelphia Flyers, down 3-0 in the Stanley Cup semifinal round, came back to take the series against the Boston Bruins while down 3-0 in game seven. The comeback mentality of the Flyers started then, and it hasn't let go.
That moment in Flyers history may be a fond one, but it may have ruined the current cast of players. Expecting comebacks every night takes a lot of stamina and endurance to pull off. It shouldn't be expected on a nightly basis.

Fully capable of exploding with a barrage of goals at any moment, the team is rarely out of any game.
Whether they’re down by four goals to the Winnipeg Jets, or three goals to the Buffalo Sabres, New York Islanders or Anaheim Ducks, the Flyers have proven that no deficit is too great for them to overcome.
While the team has had great success in overcoming leads, as of late, they’ve done an even better job of blowing them.
