Philadelphia Flyers fans showed Oskar Lindblom the love again Saturday.

The crowd at Wells Fargo Center serenaded Lindblom with a standing ovation and raucous cheer when he appeared on the arena's in-house television during the first period of their game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Lindblom has been celebrated across the NHL since he was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma Dec. 13, including a huge ovation at Philadelphia's first home game after the diagnosis.

Lindblom inspired the Flyers by showing up at practice Friday, then took in the game from the press box Saturday. The Flyers bench, and coach Alain Vigneault, joined in the ovation as well.
