Philadelphia Flyers, fans

Welcome back, Flyers fans.

The Philadelphia Flyers had fans at Sunday night’s game against the Washington Capitals for the first time in nearly a year. It was 362 days prior that the Flyers closed out their abbreviated regular-season schedule in a loss to the Boston Bruins.

After 10 home games without fans, they were allowed back at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday. It was a limited capacity of 3,100 fans – about 15% – but you couldn’t tell that based off the energy they brought.

The 3,100 Flyers fans got loud for the first game back at the Wells Fargo Center.

They gave the Capitals a nice Philly welcome before cheering on the Flyers as they entered the ice for warmups.

Then, when it was time to announce the Capitals starting lineup, the “sucks” chants were back.

The fans are officially back.

They gave the Flyers a loud ovation when they entered the ice as well.

The Flyers got on the board first thanks to Joel Farabee‘s 11th goal of the season. Farabee wanted to hear the noise.

 

And the fans got loud.

The Flyers fed off the energy from the fans in the first period. They led 1-0 and had a 14-7 lead in shots on goal through one period of play against the Capitals.
