PITTSBURGH -- With the dawn of a new playoff series, the Flyers enter the first round well-equipped.

Aside from the standard, team-issue gear, the Flyers are wearing new playoff t-shirts under their equipment, one that pays homage to their post-game victory song.

The back of the shirt, as pictured, says “16 Knock Knock’s” in honor of Mac Miller’s song “Knock Knock,” which the Flyers made famous through HBO’s “24/7” documentary.

The Flyers only play that song in their locker room after a win. You can listen to the song here.

The Flyers begin their quest for 16 wins and a Stanley Cup on Wednesday night at Consol Energy Center (7:30 p.m., Comcast SportsNet and NBC Sports Network).

The left sleeve of the shirt features the Stanley Cup logo. According to equipment manager Derek Settlemyre, the quote on the right sleeve, which is “What a Great Day,” originates from Jaromir Jagr's mouth daily.

Unfortunately, these shirts won't be made available to the public.

The Flyers’ playoff t-shirts in 2010 paid homage to Michael Jackson’s hit “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.”
