We’ve known the opponent for almost a week now, but the Flyers officially have a start time.
The NBC Sports PR Twitter account tweeted out the times for the opening night triple header this afternoon:
It appears the Flyers and Penguins will start the 2021 NHL season with a 5:30 PM puck drop.
Including the opener, the Flyers are scheduled to be on NBCSN’s Wednesday Night Hockey four times this season:
January 13th: Penguins @ Flyers
February 3rd: Bruins @ Flyers
February 24th: Rangers @ Flyers
March 17th: Flyers @ Rangers
The NHL on NBC will have more games than ever this season and the Flyers will account for two of them:
February 7th: Flyers @ Capitals
February 21st: Flyers @ Bruins
The Flyers will also appear on NBCSN’s Sunday Night Hockey once:
April 18th: Islanders @ Flyers
