Besides the terrible game, I had a great time down at The Rock. The crowd was really really loud at the beginning but the lackluster play really sucked the life out of it. I was feeling good about the game until the 5 on 3 and we didn't score then it was downhill from there. It seemed like every time a Devil got the puck a Flyer would come along and take it right from them. They could not pass and they could not keep possession of the puck.
Oh and about the Philth...
I was walking infront of the practice rink before the game and their fan group bus was unloading and they all had beer in dixie cups and were booing every Devil fan that walked by. So when I walked by they did their boo routine and it was ticking me off that I was getting booed at my own arena so I yelled "1975" and they all shut up. But then this one guy wearing a Lindros shirt who needed a haircut chased after me saying "well atleast the Flyers have won the cup huh? huh?"
So I started yelling at him saying "Are you f-ing kidding me? We have won three Stanley Cups, pal. And yeah I was alive to see all of them, which is more than you can say. And do you even remember that the Flyers were up 3-1 in the ECF in 2000 and the Devils came back and beat you in your own building and your buddy Lindros got destroyed by Scotty Stevens and the Devils went on to win the Stanley Cup?" and he said "Ah no dude, Lindros hit Stevens, I was there"
So I said "Go read an f-ing history book". Then after the game I saw this guy and his fellow fans by 124 humping, slapping, punching each other and pouring beer on eachother.
