A really dumb question for Flyers fans

I've watched a couple Flyers games this year and there's something I can't make out. When a game is in Philadelphia, and the Flyers are about to go on the power play, what is the in-house announcer saying? It sounds something like, "The Flyers are going on the ____ ____ power play!!!" What does he say just before he says "power play"?

I know it's dumb, but it's really bugging me.

It's the "PECO Power Play." Peco is an energy compay in Philly area so its a sponsor thing.

It bugged me too until I saw a "Peco" ad on the boards.

Yep, there's definately no way I would've figured that out if you guys hadn't told me.

Thanks.
