Back on Wednesday night, the Philadelphia Flyers took down the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-0, but it was also the first game back at the Wells Fargo Center for Mark Streit. The veteran defenseman was traded to the Tampa Bay Lighting on March 1 and then moved to the Penguins about an hour later.
In his three and a half seasons with the Flyers, Streit had 30 goals, 140 points, a -16 goal differential and a 51.0 CF% in 274 games.
"I had a great time here,” Streit said Wednesday morning, per CSN Philly. “I mentioned that a few times. It was a great experience playing for the Flyers. A lot of young guys came up and they're doing well. It's a good feeling when you can help somebody in their career."
During a first period television timeout, the Flyers played a brief video tribute honoring Streit’s time in Philadelphia, which brought the crowd to their feet in appreciation.
