That brawl happened in 120 and unfortunately a stampede of people fell down the rows, it was very dangerous, I was holding up two guys on my shoulders because they couldn't get up. Section 120 is mostly full of Season Ticket Holders (I am one) so I knew the guys behind me and it is a shame that they almost got injured. I held the guy up for a good minute until everybody got off of one another. They could of broken their legs or hit their heads on the seats below them.
Before game 3...even before the WARMUPS a drunk flyer fan shoved me out of the way when I was walking to my seat. I did not even say a word or even look at the guy, all I saw was orange. It is very scary to be touched by these lowlifes who punch, push, stab, and puke on people.
So far 'normal' Flyers fans have been sitting near me but even they are very strange. Flyer fans are not human.
I brought up this topic on Flyers hfboards and it is disgusting that they think this is normal behavior. They say every fanbase have people like that...they do not understand that it is wrong to bring these kind of antics from their own arena to another arena. I never have any problems when a ton of Ranger, Canadien, Penguin, or Leaf fans invade our arena. But to become violent in another teams arena is just disgusting. They think it is normal and that's where the problem emerges from.
I can't stand a lot of Ranger fans, but for the most part, though they may repeat a lot of the same tired jokes and are just annoying in general, I rarely see them trying to start fights with anyone. Ditto other fanbases. Almost every time I see a Devils-Flyers game, the fists start flying somewhere (usually multiple somewheres)...and it happens enough that when the Flyers are in the building, it's not a shock when the fights start up.
I don't get it at all. And it's the number of sucker-punches that are even more aggravating...like punching someone who's not expecting it is somehow makes Flyer fans that much tougher. No, not all Flyer fans act like that, but there's more than enough of 'em that do.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
