As any Philadelphian will tell you, the refs are always out to get our team.
Whether it's Pete Morelli with the Eagles or refs in the NBA turning a blind eye when Ben Simmons gets his uniform torn off, refs are always out to specifically pick on the Philly team.
Flyers fans know this all too well. Hello, Ottawa.
And now we've got more video evidence to back this 100% true theory up. Check out this ref going right after a Flyer during warmups of the Blues game before the game even starts. Dirty!
It was just yesterday that we wrote a post wondering where Sam Morin is and how the Flyers need him.
Welp, Morin went and reminded us of exactly where he was and why the Flyers really do need him.
As you're likely aware, Morin is honing his game with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms and he found himself in a scrap last night against the Springfield Thunderbirds' Bobby Farnham.
It was Big Sam who brought the thunder. Okay, so maybe the fight never really got going but the takedown is tough to argue with. Props to the smaller Farnham for even attempting to mess with Sam.
We've heard so much about Nolan Patrick's vision and passing ability.
Now we know why.
Patrick on Tuesday delivered the first jaw-dropping highlight of his NHL career when he slickly dropped a pass through his legs for a trailing Dale Weise, who finished the play with the Flyers' fourth second-period goal of the night (see observations).
You can watch the play in the video above … and just, wow.
Patrick, only 19 years old, does it so naturally and without even looking — at all — in Weise's direction.
Some Flyers were seen on the bench smiling in amazement of the teenager.
And it probably won't be the only time.
