It doesn't take long for a reputation to develop.

Two games into the Stanley Cup playoffs, the Flyers already have one: Resilient.

After rallying from 3-0 down to win Game 1 and 3-1 down to win Game 2, the Flyers are about to win something else: Adoration.

"It will be nice to get back to Philadelphia and best fans in the league and to  let them make some noise," Peter Laviolette said. "It will be nice to see a wave of orange instead of white."

Game 3 will be Sunday in the Wells Fargo Center. Prediction: One of the loudest ovations in recent history.
