Those four words are just a few of many that can be used to describe Flyers hockey. But the idea of Flyers hockey encompasses so much more than a few random terms that are thrown around during every hockey broadcast and postgame analysis around the league.
Flyers hockey goes beyond what happens on the ice. It goes into the stands and into the streets of Philadelphia to the fans; it goes into the offices of the Wells Fargo Center to the staff; and it goes into the hearts of every player who dons the Orange & Black, even if just for a few minutes a night.
Flyers hockey is not just the team’s style of play; it’s a culture. It’s a way of life for hockey players and fans in the City of Brotherly Love.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be examining just what Flyers hockey really means — from the players, to the game, to the fans, to the organization, to the lifestyle.
