HAMILTON, Ontario — Team Canada's victory parade, alas, will not go up Broad Street. Brian Propp and Rick Tocchet were feted this morning in civic ceremonies from their coach seats on a 9 a.m. flight home.
But seeing the two Flyers curled up together in a relatively quiet corner of the champagne-soaked locker room, passing a bottle after winning the Canada Cup last night, was very much a Philadelphia moment.
Propp has been to the Stanley Cup finals three times in his eight Flyer seasons and Tocchet twice in his three. Both played in this tournament coming off the ultimate disappointment, a loss in Game 7 last spring.
