Video: Philadelphia Flyers pay heartfelt tribute to Ed Snider


News surfaced that Philadelphia Flyers owner Ed Snider passed away at age 83 on April 11, and the tributes started pouring in.

As great as some of those memories were, it felt even more fitting to say goodbye during the thing he predicted: a 2016 playoff game in Philadelphia.

Fans, members of the organization and just about everyone in between paid tribute to Snider on Monday as the Flyers hosted the Washington Capitals at the Wells Fargo Center on Monday.

You can watch that touching tribute in video form above this post’s headline. There’s also this version if you prefer it that way:

Is it a mere coincidence that the Flyers scored about a minute into the game?

(It is currently 1-1 in the second period.)
