It you were watching the Devils/Flyers game this afternoon, yes, that was a smoke bomb/flare that was tossed on the ice during the OT period.
MSG+ showed a replay of the event with one of the Philadelphia players actually picking it up and carrying it towards the maintenance crew.
Hope the person responsible was caught and not allowed back in the building again!

A hostile crowd is the accepted burden of a pro athlete. Having to play under attack from a flaming missile tossed out of the stands is not part of the contract.
This one - possibly a road flare of the kind used during highway emergencies - flew toward the ice, flaming and smoking, landing next to the bench where the Devils were trying to coax victory out of overtime last night.
The missile erupted in acrid smoke that chased coach Brent Sutter and his staff into the runway and left the visitors looking to see if another was headed their way.
