Back in May, ABC's "The Goldbergs" paid tribute to late Philadelphia Flyers owner Ed Snider in an episode that followed Adam's search for a missing orange T-shirt and meticulously referenced an actual game played on Dec. 8, 1987, when then-rookie netminder and now GM Ron Hextall scored his first cross-ice goal.
The Jenkintown family is headed back to the '80's-era Spectrum on Wednesday night at 8 p.m., this time to settle a family feud between Murray and his Pop-Pop. Here's a teaser clip:
This season, the Flyers will celebrate their 50th anniversary by wearing gold-lettered jerseys for 12 home games.
Late last month, Comcast purchased Snider's shares in the team after a carefully planned transition that put Comcast Spectacor's future in the hands of CEO and President Dave Scott. As a result of the sale, Comcast obtained sole ownership of both the franchise and the Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers open their 2016-2017 regular season this Friday, October 14 on the road against the Los Angeles Kings.
