Are you a Flyers Road Warrior?

Tonight I will be in Vancouver watching the Flyers for the first time this season. This will make my 2nd game in Vancouver. I make it a point to take at least one Flyers road trip a year and have been to many great games. Sadly, I rarely see any games in Philly since I moved from South Jersey. Here is a list of the NHL cities I have traveled to EXCLUSIVELY to see the Flyers in action.

Tampa (4)
Miami (4)
Vancouver (2)
Nashville
St Paul (2)
Denver
Anehiem
LA
St. Louis
Dallas


These arew a few photos taken in the bar across forn the rink in Nashville a few years ago. That was an awesome night even though the Flyers lost. Check me in the white hat.





Miami is the worst setting for hockey as a visiting fan, totally lame. Tampa throws a street party before the game and this great. St. Paul is a great venue for hockey. LA did not impress me.

If you have never seen the Flyers on the road you should consider it, it's AWESOME!!

Ive only ever done road games, watched every Flyers game in Ottawa but 2 which I was stuck working for

I hope to one day make a pilgrimage down to the promised land to watch them play a home game though.

Great stuff. Since I don't live in the U.S. or Canada more likely than not I can only hope the Flyers will be in a Euro game played in Prague or another middle-european city sometime soon. Best would of course be Vienna

I've only seen the Flyers outside of Philly.

Ottawa (8-0-0)
Montreal (1-0-0)
Buffalo (0-1-0)
Vancouver (2-1-0)

Strangely, no ties or O.T. losses.

I've only seen them in Toronto and once in Buffalo. I don't know my record in Toronto but it's a winning one.

I think I'm going to have to suck it up and go see them in Buffalo again this year (I live in Rochester now). I've seen them in Buffalo before, not a good opposing fan environment.
I've seen them tons of times in Carolina (my family has season tixs). And of course tons of games in Philly (I used to live there).
Seeing the Flyers play every arena in the NHL is on my to do list!

I have seen them many times in Boston and at the NY Rangers. Other times in Florida (including Orlando preseason games).

Went to the Rock to see them once last year. I think I'm going again in March. Strangely, only a few hours before seeing this thread I decided I'm going to start going to see the Phillies on the road in a different city every year starting this summer.

I went up to North Jersey to see them against the Devils this year. That's it. I'm supposed to be going up to MSG some point this season, so we'll see about that one. I'd love to go see them other places, only problem being work and my friends lack of money to accompany me.

My only 'road games' have been vs. Ottawa (playoffs) and Toronto.

Made a trip down to Wachovia a couple years back (Flyers 3, Hawks 1).

For some reason I still haven't gone to see them in Montreal

Here's my resume.

Meadowlands 4 or 5 times
Nassau Coliseum twice
Igloo
MSG
Maple Leaf Gardens
I may or may not have snuck into Boston Garden during a game once. We were all pretty much in a blackout and could never get our story straight.

We always go to MSG for a game and have a great time. Kambo, we're goin' March 15th this year if you go!

We wanted to do Toronto or Montreal this year, but never got off our ***** to get tix, etc. Plus, $$$ is tight. That's the goal though. I'd love to see them play in every city......

I've been once to Montreal, what an atmosphere!

I've seen them in Toronto, Ottawa and Buffalo as well. I'm just itching to see them at the Wach, one day.

I definitely agree. I have a blast traveling to see the team on the road. It's fun seeing other cities and arenas. I've been to 13 out of 30 cities so far.

Montreal (2x), NYI, New Jersey (6x), Pittsburgh, Washington (4x), Carolina (2x), Tampa, Florida, Columbus, Dallas, Colorado, and Phoenix are the cities where I've seen games other than in Philly.

only road building I have seen the Flyers played in is Boston, where I have a terrible record.
Saw Trent Klatt's only career hattrick in 96.
I have only seen 1 Flyer win in Boston.
