Since the Covid-19 pandemic, Philadelphia Flyers games haven't felt quite the same. From limited attendance rules in 2021 to a struggling team in 2022, the Wells Fargo Center isn't quite what it was in the prime Claude Giroux days. This season, however, has brought a different energy to the Wells Fargo Center as Philadelphia is beginning to rally around this group of youngsters.

On Saturday night, 13 NHL games took place across the league. As attendance numbers for the night were released, the Flyers had a 98% attendance rate on Saturday night as the Wells Fargo Center was the loudest it has been in years according to reporters in the press box.


Close to 19,000 fans filled the Wells Fargo Center as the Flyers earned their third straight win, taking down the Seattle Kraken 3-2 as they are now sole possession of third place in the Metro Division, as playoff hopes begin to rise.



"There is a vibe in here tonight that I have never felt before at a Flyers game. Crowd is so into the game, every time the Flyers get the puck this place erupts. Meaningful games in February are a beautiful thing! Flyers hockey is B A C K."

The Wells Fargo Center is sure to continue to rock into the month of March as the Flyers welcome some of their biggest rivals to town as they begin to fight for the playoffs. If the Flyers make the playoffs, the Wells Fargo Center could become one of the hardest places to play as an opposing team.
