Though nothing is official, late last night CSN reported what we have all been expecting– that the Flyers will open the season next Saturday, January 19, against the Penguins.
They’re reporting a 3 p.m. start time, with the Penn State-Vermont hockey game, originally scheduled for 7:30 p.m. that night, getting pushed back to 8:15. A hockey doubleheader at the Wells Fargo Center!
The (Flyers) game will likely be on NBC.
Take a step over the jump with me to view Claude Giroux's The Shift from the last time the Penguins played a hockey game.
