It has been rough lately for Flyers fans. With the NHL officially suspending the season just hours before the puck was supposed drop on March 12 in Tampa Bay for Flyers vs. Lightning, everyone was left with an empty feeling … especially given how well the team had been playing until that point. 

Last night, things felt different. 

NBC Sports Philadelphia re-aired a classic  — Game 7 of the 2010 Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Flyers were in Boston, on the verge of making NHL history if they won this series. While we already knew how the game played out, it didn’t take away from the magic of watching it once more.

Lots of fans took the traditional approach by tweeting as if it were a re-air.

There were also fans who were treating it as if they were watching it for the first time. It definitely added a level of excitement to the timeline.

And everyone was enjoying that famous go-ahead goal from one of the greats, Simon Gagne. 

The Flyers Twitter account even joined in on the fun. 

To say the least, it was a fun night where the fans and organization came together and were able to enjoy a night of hockey. Let’s hope this continues during the re-airs throughout this drought of live games. 

It helped my sanity, that’s for sure.
