Last year at this time the Washington Capitals were suffering from a bad Stanley Cup championship hangover that they never really overcame en route to a quick playoff exit last spring. This year the Caps have gotten back on track with at least some of the form that allowed them to hoist Lord Stanley’s Cup. By contrast the Philadelphia Flyers remain one of the most inconsistent teams in the NHL. The Flyers are still learning the ropes under new head coach Alain Vigneault. Philadelphia has one of the most promising young rosters in the NHL and seen as a team with plenty of upside.
