PHILADELPHIA - Nearly four decades after the Broad Street Bullies roamed the ice, the muscled-up moniker still has a loose affiliation with the Philadelphia Flyers.

But there was only one true group of Bullies.

The 1970s Broad Street Bullies did more than bust and bloody some chops. They slugged their way into the consciousness of the NHL and hoisted a pair of Stanley Cups in celebration at the end.

The Bullies will be remembered in the documentary "Broad Street Bullies" which premiers at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday on HBO. It's the first NHL documentary ever aired by the premium cable network.

The film explores the backstory of how the Flyers had become known as the Bullies en route toward winning the Stanley Cup in 1974 and 1975.
