Flyers Give Doug Pederson Special Send-off

The Flyers are sending off Doug Pederson in style.

Before the Eagles head to Minneapolis on Sunday to begin the madness of Super Bowl week, Pederson took in some pucks at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night.

Prior to the Flyers-Lightning game, the Eagles' head coach was given his own personalized jersey with signatures from the team. (All pictures courtesy of Flyers PR guru Zack Hill.)

He chatted with the coaching staff and greeted the players as they took the ice for pregame warm-ups. Giroux stopped and shared a laugh with Pederson, as well as offering some good wishes. 

Pederson then came out himself to a roaring ovation and delivered the ceremonial puck drop, which you can watch in the video above.

The Flyers, Sixers and Phillies have all shared tons of support for the Eagles as the team has marched through the playoffs en route to its Super Bowl matchup next Sunday with Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Pederson was rockin' orange and black on Thursday night but the city will be all midnight green leading up to kickoff.
