The Flyers hit the ice one final time Sunday night and suffered a 4-3 shootout loss to the Carolina Hurricanes at the Wells Fargo Center.
And in doing so, Dave Hakstol's club avoided a very dubious record. Had the Flyers won, they would have been the third team in NHL history to obtain 56 points at home during a regular season and not make the playoffs.
Vancouver did it in 2005-06, and the Los Angeles Kings matched it in 2014-15.
The Flyers finished the season 39-33-10 with 88 points.
Brock McGinn scored two goals and tallied the game-winner in the shootout.
Dale Weise had two goals for the Flyers. Weise finished the season with six goals and 10 points in his final 13 games after scoring just two goals in his first 51 games. He had eight goals in 64 games in his first season as a Flyer.
Robert Hagg made his NHL debut on defense and was paired with Shayne Gostisbehere. As the game went along, he was moved up to a pair with fellow rookie Ivan Provorov.
Hagg impressed in his first NHL game, playing 21:19, nine shots -- five on goal -- four hits and three blocked shots. He did not get a shift in overtime.
The spin move by Gostisbehere at the blue line to retain the puck and then feeding Wayne Simmonds in the slot for a backhander -- Simmonds' 31st goal of the season -- gave the Flyers a 3-2 lead. It was a pretty goal.
Anthony Stolarz made his final start of the season. He appeared in seven games this season and came into this one with a 2-1 record and a 1.93 goals-against average and .932 save percentage. He had an excellent outstretched right leg save in the second period on Elias Lindholm to keep the game tied at 1-1.
Stolarz finished the game with 32 saves.
The Flyers didn't get one until the very end of the second period and had one good scoring chance from Jakub Voracek in the slot. The Flyers were 0 for 1.
Hagg generated a scoring chance on the Flyers' first penalty kill off the rush, but Carolina goalie Eddie Lack made a glove save. The Flyers did allow a power-play goal and were 2 for 3 on the PK on Sunday.
Forwards Matt Read (broken right arm), Michael Raffl (left knee), Chris VandeVelde (healthy) and Roman Lyubimov (healthy); defensemen Radko Gudas (concussion) and Brandon Manning (healthy); and goalie Michal Neuvirth (sinus infection/concussion).
The season is over. The Flyers will hold their breakup day on Tuesday at Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, New Jersey.
