There were woos. There were boos.
Flyers fans were back in the building.
“Welcome back to Broad Street,” Flyers iconic and longtime public address announcer Lou Nolan said.
After going 361 consecutive days without watching their team live at the Wells Fargo Center, Flyers fans made their long-awaited return Sunday night in limited capacity.
The fans, 3,023 of them, started to trickle in around 6 p.m. ET. They booed the Capitals when Washington took the ice. "Let's go Flyers" chants broke out after Lauren Hart beautifully sung the national anthem. The refs were told they sucked after the Flyers' first penalty.
And, yes, Flyers fans yelled "shoot!" during the team's first-period power play.
It was perfect. All of it.
Welcome back, Flyers fans.
