That's what the Flyers turned Philadelphia into with a 7-4 victory over the New York Islanders Saturday, good for the Atlantic Division championship.

The first-place finish was the 16th in Flyers history ... but 13 of the first 15 didn't translate into a championship.

This year?

Put it this way: 82 games in, and there was Peter Laviolette still yanking his starting goaltender, Sergei Bobrovsky, out of the game.

But the Flyers were active Saturday, and seemed delighted with their divisioin championship. In that, for the second consecutive year, they will roll into the playoffs on a one-game winning streak.

One of these years, they are going to roll out of them that way, too.
