The Philadelphia Flyers have been an absolute trainwreck of late, but that hasn’t stopped the city’s die-hards from coming out a screaming their lungs out in support of the team in orange and black. The Wells Fargo Center has served as the setting for Flyers home games ever since their migration from the legendary Spectrum in 1996. Eric Lindros, John LeClair and Claude Giroux have all hit the ice to the roaring approval of the Philly crowd.

Philadelphia Flyers Stadium

Packing about 19,000+ fans into the building on a nightly basis, the Broad Street Bullies remain a Philadelphia institution even if the club’s a noticeable stretch away from its ’70s glory days. The support the club’s gotten has been phenomenal and it’s reflected in how much better the team does at home versus their road contests. In 2014-15, the Flyers notched 23 of their 33 regular season wins inside the Wells Fargo Center.

Home games in Philadelphia are known for their raucous atmosphere and at big games “God Bless America” gets trotted out which promptly has the crowd going ballistic. The best known Flyers version of “God Bless America” features anthem singer Lauren Hart duetting with a video version of Kate Smith’s performance. There have been no new Stanley Cup banners added since the move, but memorable moments still abound. The most cherished memory crafted in the Wells Fargo Center would likely be Philly knocking out the Habs in 2010 to make the Stanley Cup Finals. The flip side? The biggest heartbreak also came in 2010 when Patrick Kane scored the OT winner that earned the Chicago Blackhawks the Stanley Cup over the host Flyers. It’s a moment that still stings as the years roll by.
