Philadelphia Flyers (2010)
Plagued by injuries and inconsistency, the Flyers only made the playoffs by winning a shootout against the Rangers in the final game of the regular season. With the East's No. 7 seed, the Flyers upset the Devils in five games in the first round. In the second round, they became the third team in NHL history to win a series trailing 3-0, rallying to beat the Boston Bruins. The Eastern Conference Finals had them facing off with the eighth-seeded Montreal Canadiens, who had a Cinderella run themselves, and the Flyers took them in five. However, they fell short in the finals, losing to the Chicago Blackhawks in six games. (AP Photo/Matt Slocum)
