FLYERS ARE WINNING, EMPTY SEATS ABOUND: HOCKEY DEAD IN PHILLY?

Two nights earlier, when the Flyers scored three third-period goals to knock off the Carolina Hurricanes, 4-1, the official crowd was 16,172, which wouldn’t have been enough to fill the Spectrum back when its capacity was a number everyone in and around Philadelphia had memorized: 17,007.

Those modest figures aren’t anomalous, either.

From the 2017-18 season to last season, the Flyers experienced the largest decline in average home attendance in their history, according to Hockey Database.

They drew 20,372 per game in ’17-18 but just 17,765 last season — their lowest mark since 1995-96, their final season in the smaller, sparer Spectrum.
