The Flyers will play in Boston tonight for the only the second time since last year's epic comeback. We thought it would be a good time to reflect on when Bruins fans threw condoms at very our Adam Gonsiewskiburger.
That's when the stuff getting thrown at us got worse. Beer cups, french fries, ketchup, popcorn – that's all expected. But after the third Flyers goal, THIS was thrown.
A condom. I guess Boston fans have no better use for them anyway.
Simon Gagne sealed the deal with a breakaway goal early in the third period, his second of the game and his third since returning from a broken foot. This made my night, considering I was wearing a Gagne jersey and a few select Bruins fans thought saying "Sigh-mon Gag-knee" the whole night would be hysterical. The Flyers won the game 4-0, and Michael Leighton and Brian Boucher teamed up for the combined shutout.
From what I hear, it was not shown on TV that Bruins fans were throwing rally towels and beer cups on the ice. It happened on several occasions, including during the final two scrums of the third period and DURING PLAY. If it wasn't shown on TV, the proof is below. It was pretty classless in my opinion, and I'm sure this would have been all over TV if the game was in Philadelphia and fans threw shit. Rask left the ice pretty fast at the conclusion of the game, probably because he was angry and BECAUSE HE WAS GETTING STUFF THROWN AT HIM BY HIS OWN FANS IN A SERIES WHERE THE BRUINS ARE STILL UP A GAME.
You stay classy, Boston. Full post and image here.
