Well the Flyers fans are getting respect from the national media. ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun ranked the Top 5 Home Ice Advantage arenas and coming in at No. 2 was the Wells Fargo Center.
“The days of the nightly line brawls are long gone, but Philadelphia remains arguably the NHL's most intimidating place for a visiting team to play, especially come playoff time. Today's Flyers team is more about skill than brawn compared to their Broad Street Bullies days of the 1970s, but the fans remain an imposing lot.”
We will get our first taste of home ice advantage at the Wells Fargo Center tomorrow at 3:00 pm when the Flyers take on the Penguins.
