It was Carter Hart mania at the Wells Fargo Center Tuesday night.

The prized prospect deemed goalie of the future made his NHL debut at just 20 years old.

And while the Flyers have struggled and gone through a roller-coaster ride of changes — resulting in an emptier arena compared to years past — fans were noticeably excited to see Hart grace the net.

He received loud cheers when he was announced as the starting goalie. After puck drop, a Carter Hart chant broke out in one section. His first save drew applause and his mother Shauna was emotional as she watched during the first period.

Hart finished with 20 saves on 22 shots and made a big stop in the final seven seconds to secure the Flyers' 3-2 win over the Red Wings (see observations).

It was a fun atmosphere.

Let's take a look at the sights and scenes:
