Philadelphia fans are stunned after the Flyers came up short in overtime in their bid to end a 35-year Stanley Cup title drought.

The Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Flyers 4-3 in OT at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia on Wednesday night to win the Stanley Cup in six games.

Forty-six-year-old Media resident Tom DiBiase says the Flyers went much further than they were expected to this year. But he says that makes it even more painful to watch them come up just short.

Twenty-nine-year-old Vincent Prestileo of Aston says the end was especially awful because "It took replay to know you lost."

Dejected fans are now left waiting for next year.

The Flyers faithful had hoped their team had enough rallies left in them to upset the favored Blackhawks for Philadelphia's first Stanley Cup since 1975.
