When in Buffalo.
The Flyers kicked off their five-game road trip by beating the Buffalo Sabres, 6-2, on Saturday afternoon. Of course, they celebrated the only way you can in Buffalo: by eating some wings.
But many fans were wondering if the Flyers were taking a shot at former general manager Ron Hextall, who was rumored to have controlled players' diets and not allow junk food after games (see story).

So were the Flyers subtly taking a shot at their former GM? Maybe, maybe not. Either way, we’re happy to see the team smiling and celebrating after a win!
