There were more people in the penalty box than their were in the stands.

That’s what transpired last night in Philadelphia, where the players spent only 37:42 at even-strength and the fans audibly cussed during a ceremony and tossed bracelets onto the ice.

The bracelets, by the way, were in honor of late founder Ed Snider, and they were complimentary. The ceremony was for the man as well. This is how the game progressed:

A Philly fan stormed the glass surrounding the Washington Capitals’ bench and taunted goaltender Braden Holtby.


During a moment of silence for Snider, a fan was heard dropping f– bombs.

After Caps forward Brooks Orpik got injured after a heavy hit by Ryan White, fans booed the battered player.

Fans left for the exits when their team went down 4-1 with plenty of time left to play.

With not much time remaining, Flyers forward Pierre-Édouard Bellemare checked Dmitry Orlov headfirst into the boards. After they brought Orlov to the bench to get attended to, fans threw their complimentary bracelets at the injured player, hitting him on the cheek.

Flyers PA Announcer Lou Nolan pleaded with fans to stop their actions: “Have some class.”

Philly fans proceeded to throw beer bottles on the ice.

Defenseman Wayne Simmons got pretty frustrated.
