You’d have to be a super hardcore Flyers fan to tune in for an intrasquad game over the NFL playoffs, but if that’s you, you’re in luck.
This Sunday, NBC Sports Philadelphia will broadcast the game with a full crew, via press release:
The Flyers Return to Home Ice at Wells Fargo Center for the Orange and Black Exhibition
WHEN: Sunday, January 10 at 7 p.m. ET
DETAILS: Flyers fans will be treated to early on-ice action this Sunday ahead of the team’s season opener. The Orange and Black Exhibition will be an intrasquad game held on Flyers home ice at Wells Fargo Center and marks the end of the team’s week-long training camp in preparation to begin the 2020-21 regular season.

The Flyers season opener is set for Wednesday, January 13 vs. Pittsburgh Penguins. The 5:30 p.m. contest between the in-state rivals will be showcased in a national telecast on NBC Sports Network.
That’s cool. We’re about to have hockey action yo, as Jose from Norristown once said.
The Eagles and Phillies were total trash this season, so now we’re turning the corner will get a few months of just Sixers and Flyers, who are two teams that actually win games and are enjoyable in the process.
