This Flyers/'Star Wars' mashup video will get you totally hyped for the playoffs

Bring on the Capitals, baby

Flyers NHL
Darth Giroux Photoshop by Daniel Craig/PhillyVoice

The original photo (Tony Gutierrez/AP Photo) was of a person dressed as Darth Vader at an NBA basketball game between the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks, Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016, in Dallas. It has been photoshopped with Claude Giroux's face (Tom Mihalek/AP Photo) and altered appropriately.

Is this video kind of corny? Sure. But if you’re equal parts Flyers fan and "Star Wars" nerd (like the author), this mashup of season highlights set over the the audio of "The Force Awakens" trailer should have you oh-my-gosh-running-around-the-room-prepared-to-punch-a-wall excited for the playoffs. Seriously, the part where Kylo Ren says "I will finish, what you started," with the late Ed Snider walking out onto the Wells Fargo Center ice? And Harrison Ford discussing Jedis-of-old spliced over clips of the Flyers' glory days? Goosebumps. Bring on the Caps.
