The Philadelphia Wings are ready to take on the familiar look of orange and black as a nod to their hockey brethren, the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers. The Wings will be wearing the orange-and-black jerseys for this afternoon’s game against the Minnesota Swarm, and Flyers captain Claude Giroux is feelin’ it too. He was with the Wings this week to present Wings forward Kyle Buchanan with his jersey for the game. But it’s not as though Giroux was meeting Buchanan for the first time. The two were teammates as teens with the CCHL’s Junior A Cumberland Grads, who play near Ottawa. Today’s game time is 4 p.m. and the game can be watched at YouTube.com/TheLacrosseNetwork.Chavez is an avid lacrosse player in Rochester and a journalist for the Democrat and Chronicle as well as a longtime Inside Lacrosse contributor.
