Since Snider met pope, Flyers are winning
Share This Post

Craig Berube may have gotten some help with the Flyers' two-game winning streak from Vatican City.

Seems Flyers chairman Ed Snider, who sits on the board of trustees of the Simon Wiesenthal Foundation, met with Pope Francis last week in Rome, where the foundation was holding a conference.

"It was a very informative meeting," Snider said. "We discussed anti-semitism and discussed the Pope's upcoming visit to Israel and the significance of his trip."

Since then, the Flyers have a win streak.

"I think that's a coincidence," Snider said. "I'd like to think he had something to do with it, but I think the team is finally turning it around and have learned Chief's (Berube's) system."
