Immediately following the Sixers game, Army Warriors Derek Stone and Roy Tinney Jr Along with Marines Darryl Hall and Chris Claude made their way over to McFaddens for lunch before heading back to the Wells Fargo arena for the 2nd half of our “doubleheader.”

After the delicious meal everyone made their way back to the stadium to get ready to watch the Carolina Hurricanes face off against the Philadelphia Flyers!

The Warriors had plenty to cheer about early on as the Flyers jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first period!  However, Carolina scored 3 unanswered goals!  With less than a minute left in the game, the Flyers scored to send the game into overtime & the stadium into a frenzy!

Just 38 seconds into overtime Brad Schenn scored the game winning goal for the Flyers!  It was the perfect way to end an epic doubleheader day!
