In one of the most fanatical things in Philadelphia, fans of the City of Brotherly Love drew their frustration with Sidney Crosby, whose Pittsburgh Penguins were pulling the Flyers out of the playoffs with an 8- 5 Victory of Game 6: throwing things to him and his teammates on Sunday afternoon. Things. Detritus. And beer cans.
Complete and immaculate beer cans. [Sob.]
It was ugly. It was the kind of thing that has plagued fans of Philadelphia sports in recent years, and it was an unfortunate show for a city that tries to shake that image. NBC's Pierre McGuire warned in the broadcast that there was "heavy artillery flying everywhere down here." Of the cans that were sailing on his head, he said: "They have beer in them." It's not like they're empty, believe me. "
Crosby scored another point against Philly with his observation :" Those things were full. What a waste. I guess they have to be full to take them that far. "
Two years ago, Flyers PA announcer, Lou Nolan, begged fans to stop throwing their light advertising bracelets on ice during a playoff loss in the capitals." Philly; this is not anywhere else in the NHL, "he said at the time (via Dan Steinberg)." Have some clbad. "As Steinberg related:
" Okay, those fans who did not have enough clbad to throw these … the next one around is going to cause us a minor penalty, "he said with increasing panic.
" Okay, those of you who have been throwing them out have done so now! "he finally said. poor Nolan in agony. "Minor of two minutes bank. This is done. "
Nolan left a similar warning on Sunday.

Verlander came out of the dugout, turned towards the crowd and, with a smile on his face, lifted some pieces of paper on which they were written:
