The Philadelphia Flyers will be featured on national television 16 times this season, and they don’t have to wait long to get national attention.
The Flyers first game of the season against the Boston Bruins on October 8 will be part of the NHL’s opening night doubleheader on NBCSN. The San Jose Sharks will take on the Los Angeles Kings in the second half of the doubleheader.
The Flyers will be featured at at least 12 times on NBCSN and up to four times on NBC. There is one flex game that is late in the season and it could be on NBCSN or NBC depending on the standing and playoff positioning for both the Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Flyers will play six games on NBCSN’s “Wednesday Night Rivalry” broadcast. They will face the Pittsburgh Penguins twice, the New York Rangers, the Washington Capitals, the Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks.
On Friday, November 28, the Flyers will host the New York Rangers as part of NBC’s Thanksgiving Day Showdown. The second game on NBC will be part of the Hockey Day in America lineup and will be against the Washington Capitals at 3 p.m. on February 22. The third and final game that will air on NBC will be against the Rangers on Satueday, February 28, at 8 p.m.
