Lindblom continued, “It’s unreal. I can’t wait to have a full house [in the Wells Fargo Center]”. That’s something every fan looks forward to – a full house at the Wells Fargo Center cheering on Oskar Lindblom and Philadelphia.
The standing ovation Lindblom received by fans in attendance of the game on March 7 wasn’t the only time he was shown support this season.
