The Philadelphia Flyers continued their home schedule after a 4-2 start on Thursday evening. Prior to the game, the Orange and Black past and present honored a man who did everything he could to make hockey and sports in Philadelphia what is today – Mr. Ed Snider. A statue honoring the legend was unveiled prior to gates opening at the Wells Fargo Center in front of a packed crowd. Fans were excited to see the statue, family and friends shared their memories for a great man, and another icon to the Philadelphia sports complex was revealed.
