It didn’t take the Philadelphia Flyers too long to even their record after an awful start.
After being embarrassed by Washington at home just 24 hours earlier, the Philadelphia Flyers found a way to gut out a win on the road, edging the New Jersey Devils 1-0 on Saturday.
In dire need of a scoring outburst, the Philadelphia Flyers turned to a player with plenty of experience in that department.
Braydon Coburn broke a tie early in the third period, and Steve Mason made the lead stand up as the Philadelphia Flyers beat the New York Rangers 2-1 on Thursday night.
The video shows a man in a Flyers jersey throwing the first punch seen on tape. When one of the Rangers fans tries to intervene, he’s thrown to the ground and surrounded by the three Flyers fans who pummel him.
They’re the backdrop at coffee shops, delis, and laundromats across New York City, but those flyers didn’t get there on their own. For one New Yorker, his canvas is the city; his paintbrush is a staple gun.
