In the midst of the post-game celebration immediately following the Flyers’ 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday to force a game 7, CSN cameras panned over to shoot the reaction of Flyers’ owner Ed Snider. But what the camera caught was a sight that would make any fan of the New York Rangers cringe.
Former Rangers’ goaltender and Philadelphia native Mike Richter, was caught vigorously shaking hands and smiling with Snider immediately following Philly’s win.
It is unknown whether Snider had him in the building as the Flyers’ emergency goaltender.
One response to “Former NYR Richter caught celebrating Flyers win.”
Not so unusual – Richter grew up outside Philly and played prep hockey for Germantown Acadamy. He likely grew up worshiping the Flyers, even though he had his great career with the Rangers.
