With Phillies buzz all through the town,
Flyers talk quieted down.
But the Orange and Black begin their attack
And defense of their conference crown.
The Flyers will look for a fight
when the puck drops in Pittsburgh tonight.
The building is new, and the season is, too,
But the atmosphere still will ignite.
With Mike Leighton’s injury,
the Flyers send out a rookie
between the pipes to stop the Pens’ snipes,
a goalie named Bobrovsky.
Asham is now with the Pens,
concussed Lappy’s status depends,
but most Flyers return from the year that they learned
the team with the most heart contends.
Game one of 82,
Will not will not give much more than a clue
for the season’s outlook, but games in the book
can still excite more than a few.
