Flyers' Empty Six Pack

Tuesday night, the Flyers managed to do something they hadn't done in 40 seasons ... came away without a point in a six-game season series with another club.

The Orange and Black have now gone 0-6-0 against the Rangers and Bruins twice each in their history. They have also gone 0-4-0 against a team seven times in their existence.

Those 11 season series are below, but first we do need to bring up the 1969-70 Flyers-Rangers six-game series ... which resulted in six ties. I guess it could have been worse, they might have had to go to six shootouts.

(Once again, thanks to Greg Frank for the idea and for doing all the heavy lifting on this one.)
