The Flyers put on a class act before getting blown out by the Bruins

When James van Riemsdyk eventually retires, it's probable that his tenure with the Philadelphia Flyers will stand out in his memory, and the match at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday will probably be a cherished memory for him. Interestingly, he was playing for the Boston Bruins at the time.

The Flyers paid tribute to van Riemsdyk on Saturday, commemorating his first return game since he joined the Bruins before the season began. The 34-year-old, who was selected as the No. 2 pick in the 2007 NHL Draft, has had two periods with Philadelphia, amounting to eight seasons in total.

Broad Street witnessed a flurry of activity, with the Flyers celebrating not only former Bruins player Mark Recchi in a pregame event, but also the 1974 Stanley Cup champions. JVR, not satisfied with a mere acknowledgment, made his mark by scoring early in the second period.

He further contributed with two assists in the first period, ensuring his return to Philly was a day to remember.
