Burke (jersey number?)
 
Did Sean Burke wear no. 33 on Thursday and no. 41 on Saturday? I know it's a silly question but was curious what number he wore in his original Flyer stint. Maybe the 41 sweater wasn't available on the road for his debut?

I think he chose the #41 just because Chico has the #42...

From what they said on the Thursday game was he got 33 when he got here, but he loved wearing the #1 jersey in Phoenix (i think thats where that was at) but that of course is retired here in Philly, so he decided to go with 41.

He wore #33 in his 1st Flyer stint.

Darren Pang, who was in Philadelphia for the Saturday afternoon game against the Rangers, mentioned during Sunday's LA-NJ game that Robert Esche told Burke "33 makes you look fat." The two (Burke/Esche) are close friends. In Burke's first game, when JR went down, I do recall hearing that 33 to be worn for a game or two until a permanent switch to 41.
