CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT
The Junior Flyers welcomed a packed house at the Virtua Skate Zone and didn\'t disappoint their fans with a 9-2 victory over the South Shore Kings in USHL action,

VOORHEES, N.J. - The mood was set for a highly anticipated home opener, as a standing-room-only crowd filled the stands in support of the Philadelphia Flyers Junior Hockey team.

The Flyers and South Shore Kings took the ice to warm-up and two Philadelphia icons kicked off a special pre-game ceremony. Lauren Hart, the No. One NHL Anthemist, performed the U.S. National Anthem, and Bernie Parent, NHL Hall-of-Famer and two-time Stanley Cup winner, dropped the puck.

Once the pomp and circumstance was complete, there was a USHL game to play and the Flyers were relentless. Ryan Ferrill had a hat trick while Brandon Bistodeau had a pair of tallies as the Flyers made a strong statement with a 9-2 win on their home stage.

The Flyers opened the floodgates early scoring two goals in the first period. Ryan Badger and Bistodeau each put one past the Kings goalie.

The team continued to physically dominate and possessed the puck for most of the game, as well. In the second period, the Flyers would score four more goals: Bistodeau tallied again, Ryan Ferrill notched his first two goals and Taylor Gooch also got on the scoreboard. It was clear the Flyers had a mission to win.

In the third period, Ferrill turned the trick, while Nick Cyr and Alec Weinberg each got in on the fun with a goal. The fans were buzzing with excitement and support for their new team.

“It was a great experience playing in front of all those fans,” said Bistodeau. “My linemates were just great; everything was going our way tonight.” Bistodeau’s goals would be his first on the Flyers’ home ice.

“It was a great feeling. We played really well as a team,” added Ferrill.

Joe Young, the Flyers’ goaltender, also spoke of how well his team played.

“We came out flying and my team was really supportive in front of me,” he said, “We had a lot of energy and really fed off the crowd.”

The Flyers take on the Kings for a second game, today at 1:20 PM at the Voorhees Flyers Skate Zone.
