A brief update on the members of the Flyers' 1973-74 and 1974-75 Stanley Cup Championship teams
1974-75 Stanley Cup Champion Philadelphia Flyers
The Philadelphia Flyers won their first of two consecutive Stanley Cups 31 years ago on May 19, 1974 and their second consecutive 30 years ago on May 27, 1975.
