Philadelphia Flyers (42-26-14)

Empty Cup: Flyers' title drought goes on with Game 6 loss

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Flyers fans spent the final minutes of another empty season doing what boorish fans do with elimination on deck. They chucked beer cans and threw trash and hats and whatever objects were within reach onto the ice. Flyers public address announcer Lou Nolan admonished fans - just as he had two years earlier when giveaway bracelets were hurled on the ice - but there was little anyone could do to stop them.

This is how the season ends in Philly, not with a Stanley Cup hoisted in a championship celebration, but with a call for the cleaning crew to pick up the mess.

The Eagles, Phillies and 76ers have all won championships - along with Villanova, the Arena Football League's Soul, and Philly horse Smarty Jones - since the Flyers last won back-to-back Cups in 1974 and 1975.
