On this eve, the final day of April, in the year 2010, the Flyers are preparing an attack. This time, it is not the demon from the swamplands of New Jersey. This time, it is an even greater foe. They are gathering the troops, circling the wagons, and studying their foe. For now, we prepare to face the Boston Bruins.
They are lead by their massive captain, a mercenary from Slovakia, Zdeno Chara. His bite is far worse than his bite. Following him is a rag tag bunch of talent, a mixture of old and new, and raw determination. A rabid fanbase has been awakened after years of slumber, and they are bloodthirsty.
But these Flyers, they have no fear. They will enter TD Garden with a look of determination in their eye. Lead by their fearless leader, Mike Richards, they will stop at nothing to achieve their goal. For they too have a mammoth on their side, by the name of Chris Pronger.
Tonight they rest, and prepare. Tomorrow, they fight. “Flyers! Ready your breakfast and eat hearty… For tonight, we dine in hell!” (King Leonidas)
