NBC to televise Flyers-Pens on March 22

Monday, 03.09.2009 / 10:31 PM / NHL on NBC Spotlight

By NHL.com Staff

One of the best rivalries in the NHL will be played on a national stage on March 22.

NBC has announced that it will televise the "Battle of Pennsylvania" showdown on March 22, when the Philadelphia Flyers host the Pittsburgh Penguins at 12:30 p.m. in the NBC Game of the Week.  The Pens are red hot as of late, as they've won their last six games to climb right into the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Philadelphia (35-19-10) is trying to secure the No. 4 seed in the East. The Flyers are 6-3-1 in their last 10 games and are three points ahead of Montreal and Carolina.

The teams met last season in the Eastern Conference Finals, which the Pens won in five games. Pittsburgh recently completed the first 5-0 road trip in franchise history and has won eight of 10 games since Dan Bylsma replaced Michel Therrien behind the bench.
Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
