The National Hockey League regular season is now in the push to the playoffs and two of the hottest teams on ice are the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers. The defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins were just one win shy of the Stanley Cup last June and are playing like a team obsessed with completing the mission this time around.
By contrast, the Flyers have been in the muck since their 2010 Stanley Cup Final appearance until this season. Head coach Alain Vigneault has transformed the franchise in his first year behind the Flyers bench.
