Fan takes shot at Connor McDavid; Brandon Manning fights Patrick Maroon

Lots of entertainment in Edmonton, Alberta, on Thursday night.

All thanks to the Brandon Manning-Connor McDavid feud. Can you believe these two have a little rivalry?

Pretty cold-blooded. We assume this is a Flyers fan (not sure where the gentleman was). Regardless, this guy took things to a new level. If you don't know, McDavid broke his collarbone last season when he lost his footing and crashed into the back boards with Manning right behind in pursuit, slamming on top of the 2015 No. 1 overall pick. McDavid, the generational talent, ended up missing 37 games because of the injury and Manning took a lot of heat for it, resulting in a drama-filled night at the Wells Fargo Center this past December.

On Thursday night, Manning returned to Edmonton, Alberta, for the first time since the play.

And, as expected, there was plenty of tension and Manning answered the Oilers' call by dropping the gloves with Patrick Maroon during the second period.

“It didn’t bother me,” Manning said postgame after the Flyers' 6-3 loss. “I’m not scared of fighting. It’s just a matter of time. I picked my spot. I wasn’t too worried.” 

It was a good matchup. Stick tap to Manning for accepting the challenge. Watch the fight in the video above.

New to Philly, Markelle Fultz already has his cheesesteak order down

New to Philly, Markelle Fultz already has his cheesesteak order down

Moving to a new city can be overwhelming. Markelle Fultz already has taken care of one key aspect of living in Philadelphia.

His cheesesteaks.

Fultz stamped off on Larry’s Steaks as his favorite. The Maryland native had visited Philadelphia many times before being drafted by the Sixers and had done his own scouting. 

So it wasn’t a question of where he gets his cheesesteaks, but how he orders them.

“Actually, I do it a different way,” Fultz said. “I usually get chicken and steak. I just get lettuce and a little bit of onions. Just a basic Philly cheesesteak.” 

Fultz also credited his mother for her cheesesteak savvy. 

“I’ll be stealing like half of hers,” he said. 

The Sixers provided Larry’s Steaks cheesesteaks to the media following Fultz’s introductory press conference.

Welcome to Philadelphia, Markelle Fultz.

Whoops: Morgan Frost deletes harsh tweet about Flyers from past

Whoops: Morgan Frost deletes harsh tweet about Flyers from past

It's a tradition unlike any other.

After a player gets drafted, he gains thousands of new fans and new followers on social media, many of whom decide to go back in time to learn a little more. Oftentimes, these hunts through Twitter history unearth a few posts that probably should have never happened or have been deleted a long time ago.

Enter Flyers draft pick Morgan Frost.

The Flyers traded with the St. Louis Blues to select the 18-year-old Frost with the 27th overall pick in the 2017 NHL draft on Friday night and immediately, this Tweet surfaced — which has now been deleted.

Life comes at you fast, Morgan.

On that night, the Flyers lost to the Washington Capitals, 7-0, in a game that included a late melee in which Brayden Schenn, involved in this trade, received a game misconduct and goalie Ray Emery traded barbs with Braden Holtby.

In another Tweet, Frost was critical of the move the Flyers made to sign Vinny Lecavalier.

Born in Barrie, Ontario, Frost can root for any team he wants growing up and fans should probably give him some slack on these tweets surfacing, but a message to everyone on the night before you're going to get drafted: go through your feed and delete anything that could find its way onto this blog.
