On Saturday night, I’ll be at PPL Park for the third time in 11 days. Pretty standard stuff for your average Philadelphia Union fan. But the park got a return visit from a more notable fan yesterday, when Flyers forward James van Riemsdyk came to kick it around with Danny Califf for awhile.
The U had a custom 21 van Riemsdyk jersey waiting for him, as well as a sweet pair of Adidas Predators.

Last night, the Flyers and Capitals played their annual rookie game, held this year at the Wells Fargo Center. I wasn’t down there, but it sounds like it was a pretty fun evening for all involved. Feels like forever since I’ve seen my twitter timeline blow up with actual game activity, and it certainly did last night. Here are a few of the storylines that came from the evening, which saw the lil’ Flyers top the mini Caps, 3-2, plus some video highlights.

I’ve read quite a few tributes to McCrimmon since the news of his passing in the plane crash that took the lives of 42 people in Russia, some talking about the “Beast” on the ice, others the mentor on and off it. His story is more impressive with every different person you hear tell it, from Ed Snider to Howe, to Chris Pronger and others who played or coached with him in any of his six NHL cities.

The Flyers have everyone locally and around the league wondering what the 2011-2012 season will bring. There are plenty of new faces, guys most of us have barely seen play in live action, as well as a guy we’ve seen plenty of in Jaromir Jagr. We need look no further than these promo videos for the upcoming season to be reminded that this particular team may take some getting used to, but there’s a certain excitement in the unknown.

When we posted a picture and link to the Ilya Bryzgalov Tiger mask painted by Stephane Bergeron of La Griffe Originale, Level reader Bill commented that the people at Drummond Custom Airbrush in Bucks County were working on Bryz’s mask. I checked in with Drummond last week to see if this was the case, and they confirmed that they were indeed working on Bryzgalov’s mask.
On Monday night, @PuckDucky tweeted a picture she said was Drummond’s Bryzgalov mask (right), which appears to be adorned with some awesomely Philly-centric images. Drummond confirms that this is their mask, and we’re pretty eager to see the rest of this it.
