Philadelphia fans, as you know, gets a bad national rap.
But Flyers fans should be nationally praised (we doubt it’ll happen) for the appreciative treatment they gave Tampa Bay left winger Simon Gagne Thursday.
Ditto the Flyers organization, who put together a stirring video tribute of Gagne’s 11-year career that was shown in the first period against the visiting Lightning.
The fans stood and gave Gagne a two-minute standing ovation. They had also roared when he came onto the ice for the pregame warmup.
“The fans were awesome,” said Gagne, still fighting tears after the game.
