Flyers Helping With Relief Effort

from the Phildadelphia Inquirer,
The Flyers' exhibition season was not supposed to start until next weekend, but that was before Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast and turned a major U.S. city into a Third World-like disaster zone. So the Flyers are adjusting their schedule and will play an intrasquad charity game Sunday at the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J. All ticket proceeds will go to the flood victims. "I spoke with some of the guys this Saturday, and we decided to hold a charity game for the people down South. God knows they need it," Flyers trainer Jim McCrossin said. "We're just going to shuffle the deck. We're not going to do Flyers and Phantoms, we'll mix them up, play a good game for a good cause and try and raise some money." McCrossin said the game is set for 7 p.m. Sunday and tickets will be $10. McCrossin said coach Ken Hitchcock will arrange to have guest coaches from local radio stations.
