Flyers' Laviolette: 'Our Greatest Strength Is... Each Other'

The Flyers have been through a lot this year, and according to their head coach, Peter Laviolette, they're only stronger because of it. Here's some of what he told the media on Thursday:

It seems like our team has had to have galvanizing moments since about Christmas time. On the ice there's always been something. When there was a setback, whether it was a couple of games or five games, it seemed devastating at the time, because we were very far down in the standings.

I think through all the trials and tribulations we went through, we've become a very strong team. It's actually probably our greatest strength right now are the guys in the room and what they believe in and their belief in each other.

I think it's not necessarily because there's been so many ? there's been so many times when we've been down and out and we fought back and we pushed back. It's not really about one moment that's turned us around. I think it's just about a series of events that's made us really strong and allowed us to be here in this opportunity. I don't think we'll be overwhelmed by it. I think we've been through too much.
