Flyers Fans Prove To Be The Most Disgraceful Fans In Hockey

On Monday night, the Flyers and their fans intended to honor founder Ed Snider, who died last Tuesday due to bladder cancer before they faced-off against the Capitals in Game 3. The organization gave away light-up bracelets and painted Snider’s initials behind the goals. Lauren Hart, the team’s longtime anthem singer, sang “God Bless America” with Snider’s name and 67 on the back of her team jersey.

 

But Flyers fans, some of whom had reportedly been tailgating since the early afternoon, showed disgraceful behavior that only got worse as the the Caps continued to score well into the third period.

 

It was undignified. It was an embarrassment. It was– as Al Koken best put it– a “clown show.”

 

Here’s the recap:

 

Before warm-ups even began, one Flyers fan went down to the glass by the Caps bench and taunted Braden Holtby.

 

 

Before puck drop, a moment of silence held for Ed Snider was interrupted by a fan yelling f-bombs at the Capitals.

 

 

 

Screaming “Lets Go Flyers” during the anthem is one thing. Screaming curses at the opposing team during a moment of silence for the man that built your organization is just complete disrespect. Classless move by the Flyers fans to start off an all-around embarrassing night for the organization.

 

As the second period began, one Flyers fan flipped off the Capitals bench for a photo.

 

 

Soon after that, Brooks Orpik got injured after a huge hit by Ryan White. As Orpik was helped off the ice and into the locker room, Philadelphia fans booed him (Pens fans did the same thing after Hank took a stick to the eye in Game 1).

 

 

Hard to believe, but it got worse…

 

After John Carlson put the Caps up 4-1, Flyers fans decided to abandon their team and headed for the exits.

 

 

With under eight minutes left to go in the very one-sided game, Flyers forward Pierre-Édouard Bellemare checked Dmitry Orlov headfirst into the boards. Fans responded by throwing their light-up bracelets onto the ice.

 

One bracelet hit Dmitry Orlov in the face while he was being looked at on the bench.

 

 

After this, the Flyers PA Announcer had enough of the Flyers fans and told them to “have some class.”

 

 

You would think that MAYBE the Flyers fans would settle down at this point but no. Instead, they threw beers. After they were warned by their own PA announcer, Flyers fans continued throwing trash on the ice, forcing officials to call a bench minor against the Flyers.

 

 

Here’s Mike Richards knocking a bracelet away from center ice.

 

 

Even Flyers players had enough of their own fans.

 

 

After the game, “Embarrassing” was trending in Philly.

 

 

Just an overall disgraceful night for the Flyers organization. This just proves what a terrible fan base Philly has. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for Game 4 when the Caps sweep them.

 

 


World Cup Of Hockey 2016: Team USA Roster Released

Team USA, along with the 7 other competing national teams, have released their initial rosters of at least 16 players for the World Cup of Hockey 2016, the best-on-best international hockey championship that will be held Sept. 17 – Oct. 1 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

 

The balance of each team’s roster – a total of 20 skaters and three goaltenders – must be announced no later than June 1.

 

The initial roster is as follows:

 

TEAM USA

  • G Ben Bishop, Tampa Bay Lightning
  • G Jonathan Quick, Los Angeles Kings
  • G Cory Schneider, New Jersey Devils
  • D Dustin Byfuglien, Winnipeg Jets
  • D John Carlson, Washington Capitals
  • D Ryan McDonagh, New York Rangers
  • D Ryan Suter, Minnesota Wild
  • F Justin Abdelkader, Detroit Red Wings
  • F Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks
  • F Ryan Kesler, Anaheim Ducks
  • F T.J. Oshie, Washington Capitals
  • F Max Pacioretty, Montreal Canadiens
  • F Zach Parise, Minnesota Wild
  • F Joe Pavelski, San Jose Sharks
  • F Derek Stepan, New York Rangers
  • F Blake Wheeler, Winnipeg Jets

 

There are a lot of names on this roster that you would expect. 12 players from the Sochi Olympic Games, including shootout hero T.J. Oshie, have been selected. There is one name that might not look so familiar: Justin Abdelkader of the Detroit Red Wings.

 

He is a high-energy player with lots of speed that plays a big role for the Red Wings. But in a best-on-best tournament? It’s a head-scratcher based on who else was available, especially when you’re only naming 16 players to start.

 

Team USA didn’t surprise anyone with their choice of goalies though, which will be the strength of their team. It will be interesting to see who gets the No.1 spot going forward. Quick was the guy in Sochi and was very good until the bronze medal game. He has the two Stanley Cups as well.

 

Their defense will be strong with three members of the Olympic Team returning and new face Dustin Byfuglien joining the defensive core.

 

Keep an eye out for the players still in the mix to be selected for the final roster. Players like Phil Kessel, Bobby Ryan, Kyle Okposo, Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Callahan are all possiblities for offense.

 

On defense, Faulk is likely to be there, but then who else do they bring? Olympians Cam Fowler and Kevin Shattenkirk should be in the mix based on their experience. GM Dean Lombardi has a known affinity for Keith Yandle.

 

Team USA will be missing players though, due to the fact Johnny Gaudreau, Seth Jones and Brandon Saad are all competing for Team North America.

 

Along with the roster, the jerseys that Team USA will wear have been released as well.

USAJersey2

 

The Adidas jerseys are foreshadowing what is to come, as Adidas will replace Reebok as the official outfitter of the NHL in 2017.

 

Personally, I like the jerseys. They look crisp and the diagonal “USA” lettering is something I LOVE. The Adidas stripes down the sides don’t even bother me that much because they blend with the rest of the jersey.

 

All-in-all, I’m pretty freakin’ excited to watch Team USA tear it up in Toronto this September. Here’s something that’s guaranteed to get you hyped up:

 

 

I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN!
