Stanley Cups: 2
2011-'12 record: 47-26-2, 130 points (3rd in Atlantic, 5th in East)
2011-'12 playoffs: Def. Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2; lost to New Jersey Devils 4-1.
Coach: Peter Laviolette (282-153-57, 7th NHL year, 2nd team)
Top returning scorer: RW Claude Giroux (28 goals, 65 assists, 93 points)
Top returning goalie: Ilya Bryzgalov (33-16-7, 2.48, .909)
Key additions: D Luke Schenn; LW Ruslan Fedotenko; D Bruno Gervais; G Brian Boucher; D Kurtis Foster.
Key subtractions: RW James van Riemsdyk; RW Jaromir Jagr; G Sergei Bobrovsky; D Matt Carle; D Pavel Kubina.
Goaltending: It just wouldn’t be Philadelphia without some sort of netminding controversy. Team denied rumors it was interested in Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo, insisting Bryzgalov is their guy. Michael Leighton, who backstopped Flyers to 2010 Cup final, is the back-up.
Player to watch: LW Tye McGinn. Philadelphia’s fifth round draft choice in 2010 has developed in a dominating net-front presence with AHL Adirondack. At 6-2 and 205 pounds, he could prove to be an asset as a power-play specialist and fourth liner.
Icing: Still bothered by post-concussion syndrome, D Chris Pronger will start season on long-term injured reserve. His career is likely over . . . John Paddock has relinquished his assistant GM’s position to return as an assistant coach . . . Flyers will play six of first eight games on the road . . . C Max Talbot will switch to No. 25, giving No. 27 to newcomer Gervais.
PHT: Logan Couture shook off an injury earlier in the game to score an overtime goal that gave San Jose a win in Game 3 and trimmed Los Angeles' series lead to 2-1.
PHT: Detroit scored four unanswered goals to top Chicago 4-1 on Saturday. The Western semifinals are now level at one game apiece. Game 3 is on Monday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
