The 7 best photos of Wayne Simmonds forcing Game 7 with his first playoff hat trick

Your browser does not support iframes.Wayne Simmonds and Steve Mason. Wow, was that fun or what?

Simmer and Mase were everything you want from the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night as the orange and black defeated the New York Rangers 5-2 at the Wells Fargo Center to force a decisive Game 7 on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden.

After a disheartening Game 5 in New York on Sunday in which the Rangers simply looked like the superior team, the exact opposite took place Tuesday in Philly. While the Flyers did come out a bit flat to start the game, Simmer's early score put them ahead and Steve Mason's spectacular work in net kept the Rags off the scoreboard until Amtrak tickets were already booked for Game 7.

There were 639 hats thrown on the ice after Simmer's third goal. Not a single person who tossed one will ever miss it.

Game 7. Tomorrow.

...much more on the Flyers 5-2 win in Game 6 coming... enjoy these 8 photos of Wayne Simmonds and friends in the meantime:

Joel Embiid explains the reasoning behind his new hairstyle

Joel Embiid explains the reasoning behind his new hairstyle

Joel Embiid said plenty with his words on Tuesday afternoon when he called the decision to have a minutes restriction in the teens to begin the season "f-----g BS."

He also sent a message with his fresh new look.

Jojo showed up to practice on the eve of the Sixers' season with a new hairstyle -- some cornrows remeniscent of the last great Sixer to captivate the city of Philadelphia.

No, not Andrew Bynum.

We're talking about Allen Iverson.

"I had the old hairstyle for a long time so I just wanted something new," Embiid said. "I know my mom won't be happy but it's only for a couple of days."

Robert Covington saw a resemblance, "Everybody was shocked. Told him he’s going to be the new AI.”

Was he inspired by somebody? Anybody?

"I just wanted something new, something crazy. I never do anything crazy, so..."

"I think it looks okay," Embiid, always his toughest critic, said.
