The National Hockey League and NBC today released the national broadcast schedule for the 2018-19 season. The Flyers will be featured on national television 17 times, up one from a year ago, including two of the league's and NBC's signature games of the season - the 2018 Discover Thanksgiving Showdown on Friday, Nov. 23 vs. the NY Rangers, and the 2019 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game vs. Pittsburgh on February 23 at Lincoln Financial Field.
Those two games are among four the Flyers will play on NBC this season. The other two are on consecutive Sundays in March - the 24th at Washington and the 31st vs. the NY Rangers.
The other 13 games are scheduled for NBCSN, three of which are part of the network's Wednesday Night Rivalry series. Overall, three of the four games against three different Metropolitan Division rivals - the Rangers, Pittsburgh and Washington - will be nationally televised. The Flyers will also play five games against Atlantic Division teams on the networks - two against Buffalo and one each against Boston, Detroit and Tampa Bay.
Three Western Conference games round out the national schedule, beginning with the season opener on Oct. 4 at Vegas, the home opener against San Jose on Oct. 9, and Winnipeg's visit to Philadelphia in January.
The Flyers' local television broadcast schedule will be released later this summer.
