Before Tuesday night, the Bruins' most recent visit to Philadelphia was a high-scoring affair that ended in the most hilarious whiff I've ever seen (see story) courtesy of Boston's Brad Marchand.
Truly, it was a sight to behold:

Never gets old.
Since then, the Flyers have catapulted into the NHL's top tier, and on Tuesday night Gritty was feeling a little sassy as Marchand and the Bruins returned to the Wells Fargo Center.
So sassy, in fact, that he went out of his way to print out an enormous photo of Marchand missing the puck, and tote it around the ice-side seats during warm-ups:

No words. Just the photo, with a red circle and arrow to remind Marchand where he was *supposed* to pick up the puck on his shootout attempt.
Gritty, we bow before thee. First the Astros (see story), now this. No one knows the troll game like you do.
Flyers fans, for their part, reminded Marchand that while his shootout flub was entertaining, he's still not welcome in Philadelphia:

The night is still young, but Tuesday's matchup has already been taken to the next level.
