The Flyers AHL team, the Phantoms, who call the Spectrum home, will close out the building later this spring. The parent and minor club will face off on October 7th.
During pre-game ceremonies, the Flyers organization honored their captains. Eric Lindros was the only one absent as he was attending the funeral of a friends mother. The "Big E" did leave a video message for Flyer fans in attendance.
