Game Coverage: I Score Free Box Seats, Flyers PWN Penguins 8-2
I attended the most smash-mouth, goal-tastic, penalty-laden, Penguin-bone-crushing-brawl of a victory at the Flyers tonight that I've ever witnessed.
And I got it all free - with box seats.
An old fraternity buddy of mine rang me up using our secret "batphone" procedure that serves exclusively as an avenue for him to tell me he's scored premium Flyer's tickets at no cost in the VIP...and I'm there.
8-2. This game had it all. The whole third period was a Penguin penalty (13, to be exact). Two Flyer hat tricks, complete with requisite piles of hats tossed into the rink. 5-minute majors and game misconducts raining down like blood. Goalies getting their legs upended over their helmets - constantly. 156 penalty minutes. Haymakers flying unceasingly through the crisp, Wachovia Center air. Snapping a hot team's winning streak by embarrassing them in an exquisite FAILgame on national television and increasing the Flyers' record against the Penguins at home this year to 3-0. Free box seats.
A magical, brutal, record-breaking night of ice hockey, free of charge. No doubt the wildest game of the year.
FLYER IT UP.
