by Staff Writer / Philadelphia Flyers

Comcast SportsNet, the leader in local sports coverage, takes viewers backstage throughout Thursday’s Flyers game broadcast against the Minnesota Wild. Beginning at 7 p.m., this all-access game broadcast will take fans behind the dashers to see the Flyers' game-day preparations, from the players' arrival at the arena to the lights going out at the end of the night.

In addition to live game action, the broadcast will feature behind-the-scenes access to player warm-ups, equipment, ice and arena preparations, last-minute coaching decisions and in-game activities in the press box where the Flyers beat reporters cover the action. Viewers will also see how Comcast SportsNet prepares for each game broadcast. Featured players and executives include Scott Hartnell, Mike Knuble, Riley Cote, John Stevens, Paul Holmgren and Peter Luukko.

"Tomorrow's game is a tremendous opportunity to give fans a glimpse of the many talented people who work behind the scenes to give fans a great game experience every time" said Comcast SportsNet Executive Producer of Live Events Shawn Oleksiak.

"Comcast SportsNet’s behind the scenes look is a rare and wonderful opportunity for fans to get access and exposure to off ice activities that we think they will find interesting" said Flyers Senior Vice President of Business Operations Shawn Tilger.

The game will be replayed on Comcast SportsNet on Friday, January 9 at 1:30 a.m. and be available for a limited time on Comcast On Demand.
