The Philadelphia Flyers held a charity alumni game at Santander Arena in Reading on Friday night, and some of the fan’s favorite players to rock orange and black put on a great show to raise $85,000 for multiple charities.
Outside of the philanthropy and Team Orange beating Team White 9-4, the real gems of the evening were young Danny Briere, who showed little remorse for anyone in his path by scoring a few goals and setting up at least one more, Kimmo Timonen and Todd Fedoruk.
Briere is fresh off of retirement and gave the other team fits. Snipe one:
And a sweet setup to Fedoruk.
Fedoruk was the star of the night though, as his celebrations went unrivaled without a Briere fist pump in sight.
He ran into our old friend Kimmo Timonen, who used everything in his power to stop Fedoruk on a shootout attempt.
Fedoruk still scored, though, and he seemed pretty happy about it.
The game was a great event for the fans and the cause, and it seemed like a great way to spend a Friday night. Here are the full highlights from the game:
