Flyers Alumni Russia Tour: Feb. 20, 2017
11:30 p.m. (Moscow)
Earlier today, we walked from our hotel, across Red Square and to the rink adjacent to the Gum. The rink has a skating area that measures 3,000 square meters (32,291 square feet) and no player benches. As a result, our final match of our Russia tour was conducted as an old-fashioned shinny game, with all of the players on both sides on the ice at the same time and few rules (no offside, no center ice faceoff after a goal, no scoreboard or game clock, etc.).
