The Flyers: A History of Evil - Terror in the Skies

September 8th, 1980 (AP/UPI) - Still stinging over their loss to Bob Nystrom and the Islanders in the 1980 Cup final after dominating the regular season with a 35 game unbeaten streak, the Flyers start an international incident on their way to Florida for a pre-season camp. After overhearing a pro-Islanders comment from a fellow passenger, the enraged Flyers overpower United Airlines Flight 367 crew and hijack the plane, forcing a landing in Cuba. The Flyers threaten to execute a passenger an hour until their demands are met: the retroactive awarding of the 1980 Cup to the Flyers and the heads of Isles sniper Mike Bossy and star defenceman Denis Potvin delivered to the Spectrum "on a sharpened Sherwood". Cuban dictator Fidel Castro calls the Flyers "la naranja y diablos negros" (the orange and black devils) as the bodies pile up on the tarmac of Havana International Airport. US Army Rangers are finally able to subdue the Broad Street Bullies using a combination of silver bullets, tear gas, and firewagon hockey.
