Sure, a 7-0 thrashing of any NHL team would give a hockey fan cause for celebration, but if recent history is any indication, Flyers fans will be coming back to earth shortly.
The last seven times that the Flyers scored seven or more goals in a regular season victory, they have not answered the bell in their next game, going 0-5-2 and scoring just 13 goals, less than two a game.
