Just five days ago, the Flyers rookies took on the Islanders rookies in an overtime shootout loss. Some of those players who shined in that rookie game saw their first NHL action at the Wells Fargo Center in game one and at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in game two. The whole “Fly Or Die” mantra installed in Philadelphia this season was put to the test under the new leadership of Alain Vigneault. Indeed it was time to see how the “new blood” played with the Flyers veterans.
At the Wells Fargo Center, the Philadelphia Flyers lost their preseason opener, 3-1, in regulation.
