Philadelphia players have had enough of the constant reminders of scoring only two goals in a five-game loss to Ottawa in the first round last year.

"Last year is last year," Flyers center Jeremy Roenick said. "I don't live in the past. Living in the past is for losers."

Since that debacle that included Philadelphia goalie Roman Cechmanek yelling at teammates in the middle of Game 4 and ended with team bickering and the firing of coach Bill Barber, the Flyers have undergone a transformation and personality change under new head coach Ken Hitchcock. The rematch with the Senators begins Friday night at Ottawa in the best-of-7 Eastern Conference semifinals.
