The 3:44 p.m. Number: 2-7

PHILADELPHIA, PA - APRIL 22: Sidney Crosby #87 of the Pittsburgh Penguins leads the line of his team as they give the traditional handshake to memebers of the Philadelphia Flyers after the Flyers defeated the Penguins 5-1 in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals to eliminate the Pittsburgh Penguins during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Wells Fargo Center on April 22, 2012 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

2-7 -- The Flyers record in the next series after winning a series 4-2.

In their history the Flyers have won a best-of-seven series by the score of four-games-to-two 12 times. Two of these wins were fairly memorable, coming in the 1974 and 1975 Stanley Cup Finals. These wins were followed by parades.

But 10 times, the 4-2 wins came before the final round, so they were followed by another series. And those series haven't gone so well, so far.
