IN DETAIL:       
Known as one of the best hockey teams of all time, the Philadelphia Flyers of the early 1970s were well-renowned for their aggressive defensive tactics and great skill, which helped them to win two consecutive Stanley Cup titles in 1974 and 1975.       

Bernie Parent was the All-Star goalie that led the team to the two consecutive Stanley Cup titles, and was selected Most Valuable Player of both series. Parent was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1984.

Dave “The Hammer” Schultz, a rugged winger, was known as the enforcer of the team. In the 1973-74 season, Schultz accumulated 348 penalty minutes and in the 1974-75 season he accrued an astounding 472 penalty minutes, which today remains the NHL record for a single season. Schultz had amazing scoring abilities, scoring twenty goals during the 1973-74 season.

Bob Kelly was the aggressive left-winger and scored the game-winning goal to secure the Flyers’ second Stanley Cup championship in 1975. Along with Schultz, Kelly was one of the team’s top defensive enforcers.
