Dream denied: Flyers fall short

The Flyers played every game in the 2010 Playoffs with all of their heart but unfortunately it just wasn't quite enough to win it all. After scoring a late goal in Game 6 to push the game into overtime, the Flyers lost 4-3 on a bad angle goal by Patrick Kane and were eliminated by Chicago, who won their first Stanley Cup in 49 years.

It was a hell of a run for the Flyers and it is one I will never forget. From the shootout goal that got them into the playoffs to the incredible comeback against the Bruins to their never say die attitude, the Flyers gave us a ton to cheer about in their improbable playoff run. In the end, the Blackhawks proved to be the better team but it's good to know that our team never gave up and fought until the bitter end. As fans, that's about all we can ask from our teams.

I will get to much more on the Flyers and what the offseason holds for them in the coming weeks. For now, I think we're all going to need some decompression time to really grasp all that we have experienced with this team. Thank you, Flyers, for a tremendous season. I can't wait for the quest for the 2011 Stanley Cup to begin.

Let's be real here. This team was good enough to win in every facet other than the most important one, goal. Per usual. Leighton is terrible and should be playing for the phantoms. Trust your eyes, not the stats.
