Flyers PA asks fans to ‘have some class’ after littering ice with wristbands

Dmitry Orlov goes flying head-first into the boards and was helped off the ice while the Capitals and Flyers continued to brawl.

Falling behind 3-0 in their series against the Washington Capitals after an embarrassing Game 3 defeat was bad enough for the Philadelphia Flyers.

It might have been an even uglier night for certain members of the Flyers’ fan base.

Following a questionable hit that inspired game misconduct penalties and a significant power play advantage for the already-well-ahead Capitals, Flyers fans were quite upset. They showed the displeasure by throwing white wristbands to the ice (wristbands that were used in part to celebrate Ed Snider’s legacy earlier that night).

Watch the hit that served as the catalyst for that nastiness in the video above this post.

That scene served as a huge drop-off from the beginning:

Let’s just say that it was a bad look for Flyers fans:

Oof, rough night.
