Flyers prospects Sandstrom, Hart make incredible saves in World Juniors

Flyers prospects Sandstrom, Hart make incredible saves in World Juniors

The Flyers have more prospects than any other NHL team in the World Junior Hockey Championships and Wednesday night's semifinal between Canada and Sweden was a showcase of impressive netminders Carter Hart of Canada and Felix Sandstrom of Sweden.

With the right to take on Team USA in the final up for grabs, both Hart, the 48th overall selection in the 2016 NHL draft and Sandstrom, the 70th overall pick in the 2015 draft, made sensational saves.

You can tell the Canadian fans love Hart because they are going absolutely nuts over him on Twitter. During the game, he was the No. 2 trending topic in Canada.

Canada went on to beat Sweden, 5-2, and will meet Team USA on Thursday night with gold on the line.

And the Flyers hope they've struck gold with these two prospects.

New Eagles WR Mack Hollins bringing his snakes with him to Philly

New Eagles WR Mack Hollins bringing his snakes with him to Philly

When Eagles' fourth-round pick Mack Hollins drives up to Philadelphia from his hometown Rockville, Maryland, he's going to have two companions. 

His snakes. 

Hollins, the UNC receiver, is a big fan of exotic animals. His two snakes — a ball python and a sunglow boa — were sitting by him as he spoke on a conference call with Philly reporters on Saturday afternoon. 

According to his bio at North Carolina, Hollins' dream job is to one day own a "world-renowned aquarium." 

"I actually have both my snakes here now," Hollins said. "I've had turtles. I was going to get an alligator at school, but my roommates weren't really all for it. My dad had a lion growing up, so we've had it all."

A lion? 

Where do you keep a lion? 

"His dad had it in a big cage in his yard," Hollins answered. "I guess in Ohio, the permits aren't as difficult to get exotic animals. Might be where I get mine from. I don't know how Philly will feel about some of the exotic animals, but I might have to get a couple."

For now, though, Hollins is sticking with his snakes. And he plans on driving them to Philly. 

"It's nothing but an hour drive," he said. "I'll put them in a car and load them up. I might come with nothing but the snakes."

Philly skyscraper lights up with team logos on entire building for NFL draft

The NFL and the city of Philadelphia have really put on a spectacle for the thousands and thousands of fans who descended on the Ben Franklin Parkway over the past few days.

But you don't have to be in front of the Art Museum exactly to see the NFL's influence on the city. All you have to do is drive down Interstate 76 through Center City at night while the draft is going on and you can't miss which team is on the clock.

That's because the entire side of the Cira Centre building that is connected to 30th Street Station lights up with the logo of whichever team is on the clock.

You can see our above video which features the Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills, and Pittsburgh Steelers. No confirmation to the reports that birds flying over excessively pooped on the building when the Dallas Cowboys' star lit it up.

The Eagles shared a pretty nice shot of their logo lighting up the building as well.

It's just another nice touch to what has been a wonderful event so far for the city of Philadelphia.
